I was actually quite lucky this past Winter season. Not 1 cough or cold for me… but Spring and Summer is usually when I get them, so luckily I’m prepared with Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops in Natural Honey flavor!
I had the opportunity to review Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops which I had read really good reviews on, so I wanted to give them a try. While I never got to test them while I HAD a cold, I did try them one night when my throat was especially dry and felt scratchy. I thought I was coming down with something, but it was a false alarm… just too much talking I guess :p
The Natural Honey flavor was really nice. It wasn’t a super strong flavor, but enough to have a pleasant taste in your mouth. Nothing I hate more than cough drops that TASTE like cough drops! And I’ve noticed at the drugstores it’s hard to find Natural Honey flavored throat drops. Most are menthol, fruit or a combo of both. The Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops definitely lubricated my throat and relieved some of the dry feeling. Since I didn’t get to try them on an actual sore throat or cough though, that’s as much as I can report on them
While I didn’t actually get a cough or cold in the last month, my son did. He’s 8 years old so he tried these out for me and said he liked them. First throat drop he actually LIKED! It did settle his cough for a bit… maybe 30 minutes or so. But he said his throat felt much better after trying them. It didn’t get rid of it entirely, but well enough that he could eat a bit trying it without wincing from throat pain.
Unfortunately I could only give a taste type review on Pine Bros Softish Throat drops since I haven’t gotten sick in awhile (knock on wood) but from what I could tell, they seemed pretty good. Got little ones? These might be great to try with them! My 8 year old liked them and didn’t make “the face” when I had him take one for his sore throat and cough, which is a win for me! It did seem to relieve his sore throat for a bit, long enough to eat and eased his cough for a bit as well.
