It never fails every year no matter how hard I try to keep my family healthy someone inevitably gets sick. Not only do they get sick they are kind enough to share their germs with the ENTIRE household. This year my hubs was the bringer of germs into the household. Just in time for Christmas the entire household was aloud with hacking coughs and sore throats. As fate would have it I had just accepted a review of Pine Bros. Softish Throat drops.
Pine Bros. throat drops are unique in that they are not a hard disc lozenge. The Pine Bros. lozenges are firm but soft(Think Gummy Bears) and more of an oval shape. They last for an extremely long time and the gel soothes your throat and cough. Pine Bros. old world recipe has been around and virtually unchanged for over 140 years. 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 soothe and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat.
Currently available in Natural Honey and Cherry Flavors. Licorice was available in limited quantities during the holidays and Lemon-Lime will be available later this year. For those of you counting calories they are only 5 calories per drop and they are Gluten Free.

My family was extremely grateful for the Pine Bros. softish throat drops. They really assisted in soothing our sore scratchy throats. Living in Michigan where the weather is harsh I’m sure we will be using these throughout the winter. Pine Bros. drops are sold at most local pharmacies and are available for purchase online.
