Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops Review

Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops Review
Growing up, I was a big fan of Pine Bros. cough drops. Given their softish texture, I thought they were like candy. So, whenever I had a sore throat, I went through lots of them. They seem to be making a resurgence of late after disappearing for awhile, or at least after playing hard to get. I recently received several containers of them for review and was more than happy to try them again, especially since I've been feeling under the weather with a sore throat that just doesn't want to go away.

If you aren't familiar with Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops, they've been around in one form or another for over 140 years ago, since 1870. After being acquired several times, including by Life Savers, they found their home with their current owner, the creator and former owner of Airborne, Victoria Knight-McDowell, for her company 3 Sisters Home Products.

If you aren't familiar with Pine Bros. Throat Drops, they're your basic cough drop to sooth a sore throat. However, instead of being hard, like a hard candy, they're softish. Just like their name. Sucking on them makes them more gummi-ish, but they don't feel like the texture of gummis.

The throat drops come in three flavors: cherry, honey, and licorice. Cherry has always been my favorite, with honey as a backup. As far as licorice flavored goes, I just don't like that flavor in a cough drop form or otherwise. I do like the taste of red licorice, but this is more of a black licorice flavor.

Overall, I'm glad to see these things back. And the original recipe in use. No more menthol for my cough drops for me. Given the sample size I received for the trial, these should last for a while.
