Just opened one of four tubes of Crest Pro-Health toothpaste I bought from Costco. It's a gel (not a paste) but the taste is horrid. Normally, the taste of toothpaste is refreshing and my mouth tingles after brushing. With this one, there was no tingle but instead a dry feeling left in my mouth...as if I drank dry red wine. Would not recommend and will not buy again.
