Pine Bro's Softish Throat Drops Review & Giveaway!

It's cold and flu season (if you weren't already aware of it). Have you gotten sick yet? I sure have! Stomach flu, two colds...and don't even get my started on Baby A and that little nose of his! I absolutely loathe having a sore throat. I'd rather be any other type of sick than sick with a sore throat. I hate not being able to swallow and I refuse to use any of that throat numbing stuff. Unfortunately, sore throats are often unavoidable and I was so thankful to have had Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops when I felt the telltale sign of a scratchy throat.

Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops has been around for over 140 years and they have yet to change their recipe. That's how well they work! Pine Bros was recently taken over by the creator and former owner of Airborne and is being made in America! Prior to being contacted by Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops, I had honestly never heard of the company. When I went to their website to check them out I found a video that the CEO created and her enthusiasm was what made me want to do this review. If more companies had owners/presidents/CEO's that were as passionate about their product as Victoria at Pine Bros is, I think more people would love their jobs! You can use this link to check out the video for yourself!

Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops generously sent me a lifetime supply (okay just kidding, but close to it!) of their throat drops. I was sent Cherry and Honey throat drops which are just two out of the four flavors that they offer. Seeing the a cherry flavored ones made me a little nervous. Usually I hate cherry flavored anything since to me it all brings back memories of childhood cough syrup. Gross. But since I had agreed to write a review on these throat drops, I knew it was all or nothing! I couldn't help but try the honey ones first though... I had to work up to the cherry! Pine Bros Throat Drops come in two different types of packaging; the traditional bag style, and "pucks" that you can take with you in the car, in your purse, briefcase, or even back pocket of your jeans!

Let's talk about the flavoring of these throat drops. I have had past experiences with throat drops tasting absolutely disgusting. When I tried the honey flavored throat drop I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor- it actually tasted like real honey!!!

It took me a few minutes to work up to trying the cherry flavored throat drop but when I did, I couldn't help but smile. Ladies and gentlemen this is the first cherry flavored anything that I have tasted that didn't immediately taste like medicine. It was sweet rather than "cooling" or overpowering as so many other drops on the market can be. It tasted like I was having a piece of candy rather than a throat drop. To say that the cherry flavored throat drop exceeded my expectations is an understatement.

What I enjoyed most about Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops is right in the title. I loved that they were soft rather than hard. I wouldn't go as far as to say these throat drops are chewable, but they had a soft outer layer that I really enjoyed. My second favorite thing about these throat drops is that they seem to coat your throat. I noticed when I was having my honey flavored drop, it seemed as though my throat was being coated to soothe my scratchy throat, similar to what a spoonful of honey would do if taken for a sore throat!
