Crest "Bubblegum Toothpaste"
If there is one thing I hate, it’s the taste of toothpaste. Yuck! It is like putting chalk in your mouth. When my dentist heard about my problem, he gave me new bubblegum flavored Crest. It still cleans my teeth but now it is Bubblegum flavored. Thank you Crest!

Snickers Marathon Energy Bars
Failure is not an option. But if you can't finish that lousy energy bar, we don't blame you.
Finally an energy bar that actually tastes great! Snickers Marathon Energy Bar. The energy you crave.
The logo is there to tell you what the car is, not who you are. Truth is, logos don’t really do much of anything. They don’t make you cooler. They don’t make the product better. In fact, a logo means nothing. Unless, of course, the company behind it means something. So what if anything does a Hyundai logo mean? It means you’ve done your homework. It means a 10 year/100,000-mile power train warranty and 510 distinct quality tests on every single vehicle.
I got my dark hair from my dad and my blue eyes from my mom. Yep, great genes. You can’t pick your family jeans, but you can pick your blue jeans. So make the right choice and head to Marshals. I got great jeans from Marshals and all the jeans are on sale now, through Sunday! So thank your folks for your family genes, but thank Marshals for your jeans!
