What is the official name for a blob of toothpaste on a toothbrush?

This perfectly rounded glob of toothpaste is technically known as a "nurdle."

There is no logical explanation for why a glob of toothpaste is referred to as a "nurdle," but the term has other meanings in other contexts. It is a cricket term that means "to score runs by gently nudging the ball in vacant areas of the field," and it is also used to define cylindrical-shaped plastic objects used in the plastics or manufacturing industries. However, the world of the "nurdle" in relation to toothpaste is quite contentious.

Colgate-Palmolive, the toothpaste manufacturer, filed suit to prohibit the use of the "nurdle" on the packaging of toothpaste manufactured by other companies. It appeared to be a preemptive strike against GlaxoSmithKline, the manufacturer of Aquafresh, and their trademark application for the "nurdle" logo on their packaging. Glaxo filed suit after Colgate had already done so.

It appears that toothpaste manufacturers want "nurdle" all to themselves, which is rather perplexing. Why can't everyone just get along by using the "nurdle"? It appears that the conflict over the "nurdle" is just getting started. If you find it difficult to comprehend, simply seek it up if you don't believe me.



If you search up the definition of "nurdle," you will learn that it is a small plastic pellet used to manufacture plastic products.

Apparently, this is also the term toothpaste manufacturers use to refer to the dot of toothpaste that rests atop toothbrushes in advertisements.

In 2010, Colgate and the manufacturer of Aquafresh toothpaste, GlaxoSmithKline, engaged in a legal dispute over the use of riddles in their advertising. According to Reuters, Colgate sought a court order permitting it to use toothpaste packaging with the words "Triple Action" superimposed on a blue, white, and green nurdle, which the article describes as "a wave-shaped toothpaste blob that sits atop a toothbrush head."

Glaxo, who used the phrase "Triple Protection" for its Aquafresh toothpaste, countersued Colgate, accusing it of attempting to "trade off the commercial magnetism" of its packaging, which featured a red, white, and blue nurdle.
