Be a "Breath Offender" no more with Dentyne...

I am sure one day in the future my kid is going to read this post and try to put me in an old-folks home, but I will take my chances. My son is currently 12 years old and loves, loves, loves to be smelly. And we are talking funky body odor and yucky breath.  So our evenings usually consist of me following behind him and inquiring when he plans to shower and brush his teeth.

Most of the time, I win on forcing the showering issue.  But sometimes no matter how much I do, I lose on his breath smelling fresh and clean. 

I have no idea why kids think smelly breath is so dog-gone funny, but I don't share in the joke.  I usually force him to brush his teeth not once, but twice each morning before school.  And I have taken to hiding breath mints in his school uniform pockets - you know - just in case he gets so hungry that he will pop one in his mouth out of total desperation.

I have been told by other moms of boys his age that this behavior is quite normal. I guess I will just have to wait my kid out until he gets older and finds girls more appealing so that all this smelly breath stuff is just a distant memory.

But then again, adults are also "breath offenders" according to the Dentyne Safe Breath Survey commissioned by Wakefield Research. Here are a few of the gory survey details....

- 53% of Americans ages 18 to 34 have had an “intimate moment” cut short because they were unprepared.

- 58% have lost interest in someone they were attracted to due to bad breath. (You don't know how many times I have told my son that girls HATE bad breath. Maybe he will believe me now)

- 78% have sacrificed essentials during a night out to avoid carrying them, and nearly 1 in 4 (23%) have left gum at home because they didn’t want to carry it. (Seriously? Are people's pockets and purses really that small that they cannot carry gum on a date??? )

Well Dentyne wants to make sure that you have no excuses for not being prepared.  With the NEW Dentyne Split2Fit Pack, you can carry these small packs anywhere and have 33% more gum (16 pieces vs 12 pieces) and split the pack into two smaller, sleeker easy to carry packs.  Now even if you are carrying a small handbag or wearing skinny jeans or a close fitting shirt, you can easily keep some Dentyne with you at all times.

And Dentyne has introduced a new flavor, Dentyne Ice Mint Frost, that brings a fresh taste to the Dentyne lineup. I was sent some Dentyne Ice Mint Frost for review and I loved the flavor and I am sure most people will too.

So there is really no reason for being a "breath offender" with Dentyne. And people everywhere can breath a fresh sigh of relief :)
