What's a good fluoride mouthwash for adults?

Tom's of Maine has taken my beloved spearmint "Natural Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash" off the market. What can replace it?

I know people are selling it on-line at high prices, but I don't want to do that. I've tried Tom's "juicy mint" and it's just as disgusting as you would think. I've tried various brand from the supermarket, and they're sweet and unpleasant.

Any suggestions for a replacement? Must contain fluoride, must not be sweet. I'm using it to prevent cavities, not for my breath. Nothing slimy, please. I'm in the US.

I've used Tom's, but more recently have used Trader Joe's Peppermint. It's in the same genre of toothpaste, if that's even a thing.

Fluoride rinse, not toothpaste, please.

They also discontinued my favorite toothpaste, but they actually recommended to me that I could find it on drugstore.com, which I did. Have you tried that?

I use the Act Fluoride Rinse (despite the flash only webpage). Tastes fine to me. It's $4 at Amazon or in the stores here in (non-fluoridated water) Oregon.

Followup, for those who care: the closest I've come is made by Kiss My Face. It's the only one I could find that wasn't too sweet. It doesn't have that pleasant burning sensation the Tom's of Maine did, though.
