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!!!

    I personally did not like the taste of these at all. I have given them to a few other people to try, and they too did not like the taste at all. I found it too bad to even finish.

      Comments about Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops, Natural Honey, 26 ea:

      Simply the best cough drops! Unavailable for awhile and badly missed. Now they're being made again and my whole family enjoys them. Remembered from my childhood, they blow away brands like Smith Bros., Vicks, Ludens, Halls, Fisherman's Friend and even Ricola! The flavor, the soothing effects, the "soft," chewable experience makes them the favorite cough drop for me. Try them and you'll never buy any other brand. Yes - they're that good!

        Comments about Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops, Natural Honey, 26 ea:

        I'm sticking with the cherry flavor. This one tastes nothing like the original and smells awful. The taste & smell made me think there was something terribly wrong with them. I do wish they would package the bags in a re-sealable version. I ended up ordering the cherry in both the container and bags to refill it. The cherry is still great, and the glycerine makes them very soothing.

                Yum! I do have to admit, I enjoyed the Cherry flavor a bit more, but the honey seem to have a smoother texture. So happy to find these drops on-line! I used them in the 70's and remember the little box with wax paper lining! Will definitely be ordering more when I finish my current supply!

                  Pine Bros. used to make a delicious honey cough drop that really soothed your throat and stopped your cough. This item did neither and we hated the taste. What a disappointment.
