The curious resemblance of my toothpaste just now to licorice is of less obvious utility

I disagree.

Is that the fennel-flavored toothpaste? I love that stuff.

That's the odd thing—it's standard, no-flavor-specified toothpaste. Perhaps an interaction with what I had eaten immediately before brushing my teeth.

Is there really fennel-flavored toothpaste? For reals?

Tom's of Maine!

I remember using the fennel stuff for years when I was but a wee bairn and would not tolerate (you will find this ironic, no doubt, given my incomprehension of your refusal to consume mint-flavored gum) mint toothpaste.
