Dr. Urban just came back from the dental convention in New Orleans. They loaded him up with samples of the latest dental stuff. One of the products is the one pictured here, Kaboom Xerosticks. He gave me a sample of this flavored toothpick.

Back in elementary school we would make, sell, purchase, and consume toothpicks soaked in cinnamon oil. They were very hot, and we took pride in who could tolerate the hottest ones. I was excited to try this product, thinking back to those eye watering cinnamon sticks.

These Kaboom Xerosticks, at least the orange ones that I tried, are very mild like sugarless chewing gum once the flavor is gone. However, while my eyes did not water my mouth did. So yay, if you have dry mouth you might want to give this product a try.
