Fall is here. It's by far my favorite season, but sadly, it's also the time when sore throats tend to start happening most often in my house. Definitely not my idea of fun.
We no longer use traditional cough drops. We were introduced to Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops about two years ago and honestly haven't gone back.
Not only are their products natural, with glycerin as their active ingredient, but they are also available in a number of really good flavors, such as licorice, wild cherry, lemon lime, and now sugar free cherry and orange. I'd have to say my favorite ones are the new orange ones. They have vitamin c in them too.
The new orange flavor can be purchased at Kinney Drug or on their website.
The sugar free cherry can be purchased at Harris Teeter, Harmon, ShopRite, or on their website.
What I like most about these throat drops is that they have a firm gummy texture and soothe your throat slowly and very well. They're good not only for sore throats, but also if your throat is itchy or you have a dry mouth. You just pop one in your mouth and it lasts for a while. Some people even pop these like candy, which you could do if you wanted to, since they aren't medicine.
I also like that they can be used by older kids through adult age. My eight year old loves the wild cherry ones. He likes to kind of chew on them and says the flavor is yummy. I couldn't get him to use traditional cough drops much because he always hated the medicinal taste they all seemed to have. So, yes, it's a mommy win!
These are available in packs as well as round plastic pucks that you can stick inside your pocket or bag.
If you haven't tried them yet, check out their website to see all of the flavors and products they have available.
