As a kid, Pine Bros. honey throat drops were the go-to OTC throat soothers for my family. I was so sad when they stopped making these. Once I read about these drops making a comeback, I was overly excited and ordered three bags right away. Imagine my disappointment when the flavor tasted nothing like the originals from the 1980's. The coloring of the drops even looks lighter from what I remember. Please bring the old formula back for the honey drops!!!

      Inconsistent - one that I got said "62 mg" of glycerin, then another one said "65 mg" and they were definitely a different taste and odor. More flowery type of smell and taste was not good. The cherry I've gotten have been better than the honey, Hope Pine Bros. go back to original formula in the honey flavor.

            I am so glad they are making these cough drops again. I missed them while they were gone from the market.

              What I especially liked about these is the non-mentholated style of cough drop. Just a soothing effect not and eye opening burst of menthol

                This is one of the few cough drops that does not scrape the hard palate (roof of mouth) which is a plus in my book!

                      These are not how I remember them at all. Considering I used to eat these as a kid I can't understand how I would have ever liked it. The taste had to have changed, I remember lemon flavor. These are just honey. Perhaps they used to be honey and lemon? Anyway, I would not recommend this flavor. Somethings missing.

                          I remembered a taste of Pine Bros. maybe it was honey with lemon, but this did not taste the way I remembered or my mother's memory. Do you carry honey with some other flavor? That is what we always had in New York in the 1950's for coughs and sore throat. Very disappointing.

                            Pine Bros. soft throat drops were my favorites from childhood through young adult. Was super disappointed when they were no longer sold. Thrilled to see them back. I preferred the cherry flavor as a kid, but as an adult with a health condition and having to take daily medications the honey flavor is much more ideal. I hope they keep making this classic. I will be buying them as long as they do. [...]

                                I was hoping this was just like what I loved from the drugstore a couple decades ago, it is! Only caveat is I find I get a bit addicted and eat too many. . . need to work on that.
