Bear was very pleased with his bubblegum flavoured moshi monster toothpaste. I was relieved. Bear has gone through phases of complaining about toothpaste flavours and I suspect that he finds the minty ones a bit too strong.
I said I would have a look out for some more. However the flavour came from Approved Food so I may not be able to get it easily. Bear pulled a face. Approved Food does food near or sometimes past its sell by date, but it is still fit to eat. Bear does not believe any food is fit to eat past the sell by date despite all my efforts and looked very doubtful. He is starting to reject food from Approved Food even if it is within sell by date, because he has reservations.
'Toothpaste does not have a sell by date.' I said firmly. Bear did not look like he believed me. Approved Food do have some stocks of it left, but I am not sure whether it would be worth trying. I shall continue negotiations later.
