Buying Toothpaste

Why does it have to be so complicated to buy toothpaste? My son needed a new tube, and was making the choice for himself (without regard to what younger siblings might like) for the first time. It took a while, because there are so many choices for him to look at. Our relatively small grocery store carries 25 styles of Colgate toothpaste (not counting different sizes) and 19 styles of Crest. And those are only the two brands with the most shelf space. In the end, he chose Aim, because there was only one style to consider. Maybe that is why Aim is my favorite, too - I can just grab it, instead of stopping to think about exactly which flavor it is that I like.
