Also an Aim fan. I recently bought up the remaining stock at Countdown. I don't want f-ing Colgate to be the only choice left. I get so sick and tired of this corporate BS. Just let people have a little choice.

The fact multiple retailers no longer have the product would tend to indicate the manufacturer is potentially removing the product from sale here. Based on that the decision would seem to be one made by the manufacturer and nothing to do with the retailer.

 

Conmpanies make decisions on products all the time. Many FMCG products don't have an infite lifespan. I'd use my fingers and toes many times over to count the products I've seen in my life that are OK sellers in some areas but manufacturers make decisions to pull due to poor overall sales.

Sorry I should have been clearer. I haven't been able to get the original for years. I'm talking here about the Mint. I don't like it as much, but I have got used to it. Anything is better than Colgate. But it looks like the monopolies here may be phasing that out as well.

Looking at their site Aim is clearly not that big in Australia either - distribution is only at smaller retailers

I dont think we care if its small shops buying it... still the best toothpaste I never get new fillings

 

just replacing old ones and places of wear.. never had tartar build up

 

epsc if you clean teeth 5 times a day.. I clean when fury

 

 

 

and even the mint one runs out some months. people that used to get original being forced

 

to change clearly.

 

 

 

and it dont kill you or affect your hormones

You've clearly never read up about sodium saccharin - Aim is one of the very few toothpastes on the market to contain an artificial sweetener that has a very dubious past.

 

I'd far prefer Triclosan in my toothpaste (and do use Colgate Total) than that stuff!

you dont eat or swallow it .. I think the mint one is way sweet over original as well

 

 

 

I drink sweetner for 20 years in pepsi max..  still good health never had a flu for just as long

 

 

 

I heard all the bs about sweetners before

 

 

 

you will suffer more from floride in water supply.... go and watch the floride deception docu

I don't actually care about saccharin or fluoride or anything else. I care about being able to choose what  I want, regardless of any other considerations. What I object to is lack of choice.

Supermarkets etc are not charities. If they are not making money from a product they won't stock it.
