What we normally consider a chewing stick in Africa has been rebranded by A London based company and labelled Organic Toothbrush…
As shared on twitter by @Nwankpa_A, what we know as chewing stick has been rebranded and is now being sold abroad as “organic toothbrush”.
In a tweet, he said:
‘My people come and see me o! Common chewing stick don travel overseas come rebrand. Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you- the Organic Toothbrush-30 day supply goes for $18!

It comes neatly packaged in a white case and has a “cutter”. It also promises to whiten the teeth.
This chewing stick goes for like 100 FCFA here.
Did we not see the potential in our own local chewing stick?
