Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops Review


 
Ever had the need for some throat soothing without all the calories of sweet mints and the medicines in the cough drops?  It's wood stove season time here in Virginia and one thing firing up the wood stove is sure to do is dry out my sinuses and throat.  I don't like taking cough drops that have menthol and other medicine ingredients in them when I'm not sick, and I don't want to get the calories from constantly having a caramel hard candy in my mouth either.  Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops are just the thing I'm looking for when I need some soothing in my throat due to dry weather and the wood stove.  These drops only have 5 calories each and are okay to give children over the age of 3.

Pine Bros. has been a trusted brand since 1870 and is made right here in the United States!  I always try and support local companies and when it comes to larger brands, I prefer companies based in the U.S. with products made here instead of outsourced overseas.



The Softish Throat Drops come in Cherry and Natural Honey.  Hubby and I preferred the Natural Honey while my teenagers thought the Cherry flavor was delicious.  These drops aren't sweet like mints or other sugary drops, but they're just naturally sweet enough to be pleasant.  What's also neat is you can get the drops either in a bag (not individually wrapped) or a handy puck that you can keep in your car, purse, or at work.  I like that I can use them as a quick "mint" or for actual throat soothing needs.  The taste isn't overpowering and there isn't an odor like you get with other menthol drops.

Have you tried these yet?  They're available now at CVS/Pharmacy's nationwide.

For more on the entire story of the Pine Bros. brand, check out their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter! 

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.
