Something about this feels familiar

I was in the local grocery store, and I saw the following toothpaste packaging (I've redacted part of the image).

It feels familiar. Doesn't it?

I then looked at my toothpaste packaging.

A-h! That was why it felt familiar. It uses elements of the Crest packaging. As it happens, the top product (shown below without the redaction) is P&G's European toothpaste product. It appears that P&G's Crest brand product may not have been selling as well as desired in Europe, so P&G acquired Blend-A-Med, an established German toothpaste brand (link 1, link 2).
