I received several packets of Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops to review. The flavors are Wild Cherry and Natural Honey.
I like both of them. I like the Natural Honey better but both flavors taste good. I gave some to my mom and she likes them too.
These drops are soft and chewy but they recommend you let them dissolve in your mouth.
They do work. I haven’t tried them with a really bad sore throat because I haven’t had a really bad one yet this year but for mild ones they help a lot.
They also help with the scratchy/itchy throat that makes you want to cough just to clear your throat. I have allergies and sometimes the sinus drainage irritates my throat. I used to either suck on cough drops or peppermint candies to help with that.
Now I’m using the Pine Bros. drops. They have fewer calories! Each Pine Bros. drop only has 5 calories.
Of course if you actually have a sore throat that lasts for more than a few days you should see a doctor. They even tell you that on the packaging!
They were first sold way back in 1870 in Philadelphia. They company has gone through several different owners since then and the current owners have gone back to the original recipe but redesigned the packaging. I think they did an excellent job.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
