Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

The weather where I live fluctuates dramatically and it drives me nuts. One minute you’re freezing and piling on a ton of clothes, and then later in the day, you’re dying to peel each layer off and drenched in sweat. Not fun for anyone.

What I hate about these weather changes the most is the fact that I will get a sore throat  or a cough fairly easily. Then I’m trying to stock up on cough drops/lozenges to soothe my throat.

Pine Bros was kind enough to send me a very generously filled box of several packs of a variety of their softish throat drops. Sure made me happy during this time of year!

They sent me a few packs of honey, licorice, and wild cherry flavor. I received packets and also plastic tins. I tried the honey ones first when my throat was irritated one morning. I popped one in my mouth and sucked on it, letting it slowly dissolve in my mouth. I tried to bite into it once, but they are nothing like the regular cough drops. I guess the way I could best describe them would be to say that they are like really tough-to-get through gummies. They’re not really chewable. It’s best to let them dissolve on their own.

The honey flavored ones have a very mild honey flavor. They did soothe my throat and make it less sore. The feeling lasted for a good while.

Licorice flavored ones are not too bad—my mom really likes these. She grabbed a pack for herself. She said the only things she did not like was the fact that a couple did dissolve in her mouth but then a tiny piece was stuck to her throat for a little while, which was not a good feeling. This never happened to me, not once, and I have eaten several since they arrived.

My favorites are the wild cherry. I love the way that they taste.
Are they safe for kids?
It does say that they are safe for children but I'd honestly be a little hesitant to give my 5 year old these cough drops, because they seem like they might be a choking hazard for young children.

A suggestion for people who purchase these throat drops:
Be careful not to let the pack get moist or you have a glob or hard, sticky cough drops. I keep the open package rolled and sealed in a plastic sandwich bag. I do wish the packets were re-sealable. That would be great.
One of the plastic tins popped open a little too easily and spilled all over the floor. I was pretty sad because it was full of my favorite ones-the wild cherry.

They are all pretty good, a nice change to traditional cough drops. They all work well to keep my throat moisturized and soothed, helping me cough less. I really like them and would love to buy some in the future if I could find it in the store.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Choose the right CBD for your daily routine

Can I ask you a question? Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you thought “no” — You are not alone. Most people have no idea it exists… Yet, your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a neural network that exists throughout your body and in every organ! Appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain are all regulated by your ECS and can become imbalanced.

And to put your ECS system back in balance, it is time for you to discover the power of cannabinoids. Today, I hope to make this easier for you… My friends over at Elixinol have an amazing product called 300 mg Cinnamint Hemp Oil Drops Tincture   and  900 mg CBD capsules  that contains full-spectrum, 100% organic hemp cannabinoid extract.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new. Now, to get to the new, and past the terrible process of moving, here are my packing hacks. Label everything! Unless you’
