Why take a tube of toothpaste or even use liquid soap to brush your teeth in the backcountry when you could be using cool mint flavored toothpaste tablets? Chew one tablet, then brush as normal and rinse for a clean healthy mouth. All the performance of paste without the mess. Produces a foaming action with brushing and no water is needed. The main ingredient is cranberry extract which reduces plaque and they do not contain peroxides or bleach components which reduce or make enamel brittle.

    My second order

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Oct 2023

    Super useful little toothpaste tabs that come with a small package that holds six, enough for most trips out to the backcountry. They're refreshing, and make my mouth feel fresh. Do they work as well as storebought toothpaste? Maybe. I backpack quite a bit and my dentist hasn't mentioned my tooth health suffering :)

    Small, light, work as advertised

    Posted by Bridget C. on 2nd Aug 2022

    First time buying and using toothpaste tablets and I’m very pleased. They work well and feel like they clean just as well as regular toothpaste. And they pack up very small and light in the included mini carrying case.

    Mouthful of minty bubbly clean

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Aug 2022

    These seem a bit weird when you first start to chew, but sure enough, they foam right up and give a nice, refreshing mint clean.

    Better than expected!

    This tablets work really well! They foam up much more than expected, and you feel minty fresh after using them. Would definitely recommend.

    Maybe a little too big?

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Jun 2022

    These were great. My first thought was that I had been scammed into buying breathmints, but they're legit, they foam up and do a great job cleaning teeth. My only complaint is that they're probably more than needed, could cut them down to half a tablet for a single brushing.

    Good tasting tabs

    Posted by Unknown on 16th May 2022

    No complaints. Good mint flavor, not overpowering. Nice way to carry toothpaste since it is in dry form.

    simple & easy

    Posted by Ken on 24th Feb 2022

    no mess, lightweight, refreshing, effective and surprisingly easy to use, these chews are my go to for toothbrushing in the field. The usual options: toothpowder and paste are more hassle and allow for potential messiness I prefer to avoid in the wild. Esp. bear country.

    surprisingly refreshing

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Feb 2022

    Had to give these a try before bringing them onto the trail. Surprisingly it doesn't suck all the moisture from your mouth like i had thought something like this may. Very minty and left a fresh feeling. Scent can be quite strong so it would be smart to keep the small container in another sealed bag to help keep any wildlife from being curious.

    Pleasant minty taste

    Much better than other toothpaste tablets I've tried before, and which led me to return to toothpaste in a tube. No more toothpaste tubes for me!

    Fresh Idea

    Posted by TropicalZach on 29th Oct 2021

    This is a brilliant product that performs just as it is supposed to. Gone are the days of toothpaste that adds unnecessary weight or tooth powder that is messy. Place one of these tablets in your mouth, crew it up, brush your teeth and spit the mess out. Simple, lightweight, clean, and it works...what more could you ask for.

    Easy and compact!

    Posted by Barbara Hauer on 29th Aug 2021

    These toothpaste tablets are compact to carry on a backpacking trip and so easy to use. No mess, no fuss, just chew and brush!

    Easy and pleasant to use

    Posted by Molly on 17th May 2021

    Very easy to use, lightweight, and made for quick, low water backcountry toothbrush cleanup. Loved the small case included. I did not have high hopes for the experience of using toothpaste tablets in general. These actually tasted pretty good(like a less intense Ice Breaker mint) and far exceeded my expectations. My backpacking partner also agreed. Will continue to use for my backcountry adventures.

    super lite tabs, big cleaning power

    Posted by Swamp Donkey on 16th May 2021

    Brought these with me on a recent trip into the olympic national park. Brushed my teeth like I was polishing the queen’s jewels with these suckers. Gave my breath a minty fragrance with a cool feeling like a throaty embrace of the Arctic.

    I bought these to take on a backpacking trip this fall, thinking it would be more convenient than toothpaste, in addition to saving weight and space over a tube. I tried one, and was happy with the taste, the way it foamed up and how clean my teeth felt. will definitely be taking these on the trip! Comes with a little carrying case that holds 6 tabs--just right for a 3-day trip.

    Clean Teeth, Weighs Nothing -- What's Not to Love?

    Posted by Brian Talbert on 27th Jan 2021

    Who doesn't want clean teeth? These really work well. Chew, swish, brush, and spit. Nice refreshing mouthfeel, weighs next to nothing.

    Great and lightweight

    Posted by Jackson on 28th Aug 2020

    These work way better than I expected. Might convert to toothpaste tablets even when not backpacking.

    HUGE time and weight savings!

    Posted by Dave on 9th May 2018

    I used to make toothpaste 'dots' from standard toothpaste, but they really did take forever to dry, even in my dry climate. Dots were also strangely chewy and a little harder to use in the field. These come all ready to go - think a little harder than a sweet-tart candy, but like those are easily broken up and used for toothpaste, and they left my mouth and breath in fine shape. Highly recommended!

    Bring exactly what you need!

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Apr 2018

    In terms of saving weight, having exactly the right amount of toothpaste for your backpacking trip is a lot easier with these tablets compared to emptying out a travel size toothpaste. They taste fine and store well.

    Great replacement for paste!

    Posted by Matthew Moore on 14th Jan 2018

    The first thing you will notice is how darn minty they are! This makes my ditty bag smell great after a couple of days . These clean my teeth great and they're so light that I can get away with bringing 3 per day. This is now my new replacement for toothpaste and will never look back.
