Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops

Fall is in full swing here in the North East and with the change in weather comes a lot of coughs, sore throats and runny noses! I know for my family, we have already gotten hit by the cold virus twice this season & we are just now into the middle of October. From what the weather reports say, we are in for a real rough Winter and that means a lot of colds, flu's and virus' will be here too!

When it comes to treating sore throats, I try to treat them with natural remedies that don't contain harmful chemicals or nasty side effects. I like products that I can give to my grand child, my daughter, hubby or take myself. I don't like having to keep 50 products on hand to treat everyone's sore throat and/or cough.
Today, I would like to introduce you to Pine Bros. who makes Softish Throat Drops. The company has been in business for over 140 years making and selling Softish Throat Drops which are currently available in 4 different flavors: Wild Cherry, Licorice, Natural Honey and Lemon-Citrus. These natural throat-soothing drops only contain 5 calories each, with 0 calories being from fat. Love that!

My family was sent several packages of the Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops to try out for all of you and they arrived at the perfect time! Our grand daughter has had a sore throat for 2 days now (a minor one) so I gave her a Wild Cherry throat drop to suck on. About 30 minutes later she told me that her sore throat felt a lot better.

My husband has a sore throat pretty often, thanks to his occupation. He loves sucking on natural throat drops to help soothe his scratchy throat and he immediately ran off with a bag of the Wild Cherry throat drops. He loves to keep them at work and in his desk drawer.

My daughter and my mother have been using the Pine Bros. Natural Honey throat drops for the past few days. Both suffer with Fall and Seasonal allergies and all of that nasal drainage stirs up a sore throat in both of them. They have been telling me that they love how smooth these throat drops feel while they are sucking on them, that they have a pleasant honey flavor and that they definitely do help to soothe their throats! Yeah!

Even though I don't have a sore throat right now, my throat gets really dry and irritated because I am a talker and I talk a lot! I found that sucking on the Wild Cherry Softish Throat Drops helps to keep my throat moisturized and soothed. In my book, a must have for those of us who talk a lot!

I am really impressed with these Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops and when we run out, I will be purchasing more! If you would like to give them a try, they are available nationwide at CVS stores. You can learn more about this wonderful company and their products by visiting their web site and/or following Pine Bros. on Facebook.
