Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops… a natural alternative (& enter to win a $500 CVS gift card)

Growing up my mom would give me a Ludens wild cherry cough drop whenever I had a cough or sore throat. I would eat them like candy.

Over the years I have also used other brands of cough/throat drops, so I do have an idea of what I like and what works. Yet, I do like to keep things natural. Seriously, I rarely take pills for anything.

I like these Softish Throat Drops.

These are not hard like you are used to, but they’re not chewable either. Kinda gummy, but you’re supposed to suck on them. They’re also made of natural ingredients – things you can pronounce, well, if you can pronounce acacia; all of the other words are simple enough, though.

Mr. Pine, a former German confectionery maker, determined that by combining the soothing natural qualities of glycerin with the healing properties of gum acacia, he could sooth and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat. Add in some natural flavoring and a sweetener and voila, Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops were born.

Pine Bros. comes in two flavors: Natural Honey and Wild Cherry.

I prefer the honey over the wild cherry. The wild cherry flavor, to me, was a tad weak. The honey was just right. I also liked the gumminess of the drops. And I love the tin option.

I brought several bags to work with me and shared them with my coworkers to get their feedback as well. The majority did not like the flavor (not enough or just not pleasant). Some did not like the texture. Everyone agreed they did soothe their throats.

My thought is if you prefer natural remedies, then you will like Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops. 

Did you know you can buy Pine Bros. at your local CVS store?

They sell for about $3.49.
