It's that time of year where those nasty cold and flu viruses seem to catch up with us. For those who have been reading my blog this week, you will know that I caught one of the flu bugs that has been going around. I seem to spend a majority of my day coughing from throat irritation. Cough drops and throat lozenges have been my best friend. So what a better time to review a product specifically made for the throat and mouth.

Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops are a naturally flavored, gluten free, 5 calorie drop that uses glycerin and gum acacia to help soothe and heal a pesky sore throat. They come in a variety of flavors including Natural Honey, Licorice, and Wild Cherry. The Wild Cherry flavor ingredients include: Gum Acacia, Sugar, Corn Syrup, Glycerine, Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Colored with Elderberry Concentrate, Sun ower Oil, Caranuba Wax.

As their name says, they do have a softer texture to them. They start off fairly hard like a candy, but quickly form into something similar to a chewy gummy texture. It is recommended though to simply let the drop dissolve in your mouth, rather than chewing it. When I opened the container, I did the sniff test, and to my surprise they had a very nice natural cherry aroma. As I said before, I find that I am coughing a lot during the day due to throat irritation, so I put these drops to the test on my throat. My immediate thought once I tried it was "wow these taste really good". They do not have that fake candy like cherry flavor, its a more less sweet and natural flavor which I really enjoyed. I did notice that once the drop started to really dissolve, it lost some of its flavor, and after it was gone left a not so great after taste in my mouth. Nothing horrible or unbearable, but definitely mint worthy. My throat did seem to be less irritated, and I was coughing a lot less. The relief lasts me about a hour with only using 1 drop.

I would recommend these to people to try, they do work, and the thing that I love the most is that they are natural. You can look on the back info panel and read the ingredients and actually understand what is going into these drops. Overall I'd rate them 4 out of 5 stars!

Pros: Natural ingredients, relieve throat irritation, natural flavors, gluten free.
Cons: Give a not pleasant after taste.

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.
