Like booze? Hate dentists? Then you would have loved whiskey-flavored toothpaste.

I'm not quite sure how this trend took off. Personally I brush my teeth to cover up the scent of booze not to smell like booze.

So did Don Poynter. And in 1954, the newly minted college grad decided to do something about it. With more ambition than credit, Don secured a $10,000 bank loan in, let's just say, a slightly less than forthright manner. However, he proceeded to manufacture the best damn reason we've seen for brushing twice a day: Whiskey Flavored Toothpaste.

Poytner Products' toothpaste was released in Bourbon and Scotch flavors and actually did contain a small amount of um, er, provisions to ensure an authentic boozy flavor. Tubes tipped the scale at a respectable 6 proof (com'n, it's toothpaste). Don's whiskey toothpaste struck a cultural nerve and wound up becoming one of the country’s biggest novelty items in the 1950s and 60s.

LOL how fun is that? No wonder people told their kids to brush their teeth behore going to bed. (sleep tight.)
