Non è davvero dentifricio! Controlli di nuovo.

Taste should be accepted

the word gusto can be used for taste or flavour. In English we would say taste more often than flavour in this sentence. I was marked as incorrect.

'The toothpaste has a funny taste' should be accepted

If you want to avoid being marked wrong I think it's probably best to try to translate the sentence as strictly as possible.

È economico, ma che gusto strano :)

Nice rhyme.

Ok, well it was when I used "taste". Flavour loses the effect somewhat :(
