Medicinal Toothpaste Couto

Launched in the early '30s to help the Portuguese stave off gum disease, Medicinal Toothpaste Couto hit its cultural high in the '60s with a famous commercial featuring a man with teeth so strong he could chomp down on a chair and spin it around.  It's now available in the States...just in time for you to perform some super human dental tricks at the office holiday party.  (Legal note: Neither HHH nor Couto should be blamed/sued if you lose any teeth at your office holiday party).

  3. I am a packaging luvr, I love packaging & the product behind it seems secondary to me!

  4. The packaging rocks. And I love the little metal tube -- they squeeze out so nicely and work with those little toothpaste keys.
