Win a case of tingz

Parents rejoice: finally a tasty sweetie that’s (really) good for teeth

 Peppersmith, have just launched a brand new kids' sweet range called tingz and instead of moaning that sweets will rot their teeth you can indulge them, now I find this fascinating and that these are made from natural ingredients really surprising.   I would actually like to enter my own competition to try them. But I cannot, but YOU can!!!

You can win a case of these containing 8 packets of each flavour in my new giveaway thanks to the lovely healthy people at Peppersmith. Read on to find out more about these magical yummies.


tingz – monstrously tasty treats for kids (and grown ups) – are the ideal antidote to the mass of sugary sweets we are so used to seeing.  Sugar-free and made from natural, sustainably sourced ingredients, tingz actually help reduce plaque and the risk of tooth decay.  They’ve even been accredited by the British Dental Health Foundation.

tingz are sweetened only with xylitol, a naturally occurring sweetener from beech trees, which has been proven in over 300 studies to be effective in helping to prevent tooth decay.

 “Studies have shown that xylitol consumption is especially important for emerging teeth, which is why children in Scandinavia are regularly given free xylitol sweets in schools and nurseries”, says Dr Nigel Carter OBE, Chief Executive of the British Dental Health Foundation. 

For the full dental health benefits, it’s best to eat between 5g and 10g of xylitol a day, split into several servings, ideally each after meals or other snacks. A bag of tingz contains around 14g of xylitol.

With no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives and no aspartame, tingz sweets are available in two flavours; strawberry and vanilla and orange and mandarin , priced from 99p to £1.19.

  4. My cousin was having issues with her little one not brushing her teeth, so I surreptitiously showed her a photograph of a child with rotten teeth and told her that would be her if she didn't brush them. Apparently there haven't been any issues since...

  7. Oh, I like the idea of showing a picture of rotten teeth! Brilliant. Having looked up Xylitol (for side effects) - I noted that it's toxic to dogs.
    And excessive use can have mild laxative effects!!

    The tooth fairy forgot to leave money last night so I secretly gave the older one a £1 and told her to 'pretend to find it'. My youngest then asked me why the tooth fairy came but didn't take the tooth! So I had to explain that the tooth fairy must be very forgetful (true) and we'd leave the tooth out again.

  21. When I was little I really enjoyed brushing my teeth due to the amazing milk teeth tooth paste or the strawberry one! I would sometimes just suck it off the tooth brush! lol I also remember in primary school we sucked those sweets which showed your plaque. Haunted me forever and I love clean teeth!

  60. My tip is to invest in some Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief. The dentist recommended it to me when I was struggling with tooth pain & it was just incredible. I was in agony with an exposed nerve & rubbed some on my tooth & the pain went, instantly!! I brush every day with it now & can. for the first time in 8 years, eat cold things!! Amazing, really! x

  61. Use an electric toothbrush! Also, brush your teeth daily at least once a day. I was never encouraged as a child to brush my teeth, and now suffer because of it (both with my teeth and my pocket with the cost of the dentist) I encourage my 3 year old little boy to brush morning and evening x
