I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that I got the Cinnamon flavor Marvis Toothpaste sample this month since all the pictures I had seen were of a mint flavor which starts to get boring. The tube looked nice and kind of vintage standing up straight on my counter instead of all bent and rolled up in one of the drawers below the sink. For a sample, I would say it is was a good size -- slightly larger than the samples you see of the major brands.
I was kind of surprised by the flavor of the toothpaste. I think that I was expecting the cinnamon flavor to be much bolder -- kind of like a stick of Big-Red or a shot of Goldschläger, but it was much more mild. Initially I was a little disappointed because I was thinking of it in terms of a novelty item rather than a daily use item. For a daily use item, however, I think the mild flavor is a plus because it could get a little sickening to have a strong taste of cinnamon lingering throughout the day.
After brushing my teeth and mouth felt and looked just as clean as after my regular toothpaste (Crest 3D White Radiant Mint) but with less of a lingering toothpaste taste.
Bottom line: While I like the toothpaste, I didn't find it to be anything spectacular (perhaps because sampling toothpastes never has really been my thing.) Considering that I don't know anything regarding any actual oral health benefits (anti-cavity, anti-plaque, fluoride, etc.) and the increased price for a smaller tube, I probably would stick with my current toothpaste or perhaps keep a tube on supply in the case of boredom or perhaps getting a surprised reaction to a kiss.
