The travel toiletries section of the pharmacy always used to fascinate me as a kid. Maybe we’re predisposed to like miniature things. I always wanted to start a restaurant that only sold mini foods. Quail egg omelets. Thimbles of elfin thyme and potato soup. That sort of thing. Still looking for investors.
The travel toiletries section at the pharmacy never had good toothpaste. Just Crest and the like, sugary pastes that seem to subvert the very idea behind toothpaste.
Luckily, it turns out Dr. Bronners makes a travel tooth paste. Perfect for bike packing or touring. Enough paste for 2 people for a week who don’t like to use an inch of toothpaste everytime they brush. Bringing a full tube is bonkers. You could bring better food, or a beer, for that weight, or a nice book.
