HOLIDAY FOODS THAT CAUSE BAD BREATH: Desserts Edition

Holiday Cookies

Excited for a season of holiday parties and gatherings with loved ones? Bring the cheer, not the bad breath with you.


It's been a hard year and a half, and we've been hearing that many are feeling both excited and anxious about this holiday season. Weather it’s Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, or any of the December holidays, this season is filled with opportunities to catch up with loved ones and remember to be grateful for all we have in our lives.

Let's share these special moments with fresh clean breath, because no one likes bad breath, or having to worry about having bad breath.

Desserts are many people’s favorite (we look forward to these all year long…)! And yet, we have bad news about how bad breath and these sweet treats or end of meals are correlated.

Decorating cookies for the holidays

 

Waiting all year for a slice of cake or pie? Is making and decorating cookies one of your family’s cherished holiday traditions? In case you didn’t know, sugar isn’t only a calorie overload, it's also contributes to having bad breath, since it feeds the bacteria in your mouth to create malodor (generating sulfur compounds which are what smells in your breath).

While we’re not saying to skip the desserts altogether (seriously because the holidays only come once a year and we know we won’t be able to fully resist), we do have a few tips to help reduce the bad breath potential. 

Some ideas on how to indulge while doing some breath damage control:

Cake with whipped cream

>> Skip the ice-cream and the whipped cream on top or next to cakes.

Pie with 2 crusts (top and bottom)

>>Eat a pie that only has one pastry or crust on it (vs top and bottom)

Cookies with and without frosting

>>Go for the dessert option without frosting or icing.

>>Dark chocolate is always a better choice vs milk or white chocolate.

Drink water this holiday

>>Drink lots of water

Mouth Off gets rid of bad breath for holidays

>>And of course, bring Mouth Off gum packets with you! This way, after your meal, you can quickly clean away the odorous sulfur compounds for fresh breath.
