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.
