Pine Bros Cough Drops Review and #Giveaway

        Unfortunately I am one of "those" people that it is always debatable as to whether or not I am a hypochondriac or not.  I am ALWAYS sick! I have the worst immune system in the world and it's probably my fault as I don't take a daily multivitamin or get the proper amount of rest that's recommended.  But honestly what parent does?


        I seem to have passed all of these "issues" down to my children as now there is always someone in my household who is sick whether it's a cold or allergies or something else.  So when the opportunity came available to again review the Pine Bros Cough Drops this year, I was all in!  I was sent several packs of the cherry and new lemon citrus flavors as well as in both the to go pucks and the normal bags.

        The cherry had a nice subtle flavor and the piece slowly dissolved getting softer and almost chewy the longer I sucked on it.  I am in love with the Lemon Citrus as it reminds me of warm tea with lemon.  It had a very refreshing and soothing flavor.  I love the fact that these come in such cute little to go puck containers so I don't have to worry about finding a year old cough drop stuck to the bottom of my purse anymore.  Plus, now I can stick a puck in my coat pockets, in my purse, in the car, or anywhere I can think of to make sure I am never without.
Available to purchase/Cost:  $8.97 Online 3 Puck Minimum w/ 26 ea Cough Drops
Recommendation:  I didn't think these were strong enough to help with a severe cough or sore throat.  They are very mild and soothing but if you are like me, I want something which numbs my throat.  The nice thing is they are not too expensive and they are more like candy tasting for the kids so I can give them to them without dealing with the "I don't like it".

  25. Well, I have lots of allergies and breathing issues, so it's pretty expected that I'll be sick at least at the beginning of each season. I recently quit immunizations, but they seemed to really help, although the last injection the gal accidentally gave me too much and I had to be rushed for help!

  27. My grandfather's cure: Boil one cup molasses with one fourth cup vinegar until syrup coats spoon (13-15 minutes, stirring only after it starts boiling), take off heat and add 1 small onion, finely diced. Pour mixture into a chilled buttered pan. Victim- (Me) was required to consume all of it. The "cure" worked: The only time I ever stayed home was when I was REALLY sick.
