Crust vs. Crend – Battle of the Crest Rip-offs

There are rip-offs of US brands all over the world, but maybe one of the biggest is Crest toothpaste. ‘Crust’ can be found in Africa and parts of the middle east, whereas ‘Crend’ is from Iran.  

Not sure that I want any Crust on my teeth, but it should also be noted that with Crend, you are assured that it is good “For long lasting tooth”. No wonder Iran’s Ministry of Health so enthusiastically approves!
