I have never used these cough drops for coughs, or anything else medically related. I love them for their yummy and delicious taste! (There is really nothing in them that is chemically medicinal, only glycerine that will soothe sore throats.)
But if you had ever had one before they were discontinued in the '80's, you will remember how good they were.

Not in convenient packaging

These drops have virtually no flavor. They're like a slightly-harder gummy bear with a little less sugar but more of a grainy quality to it. Blech. They don't work for a cough, either- you might as well suck on a cherry-flavored gummy bear (at least it'll taste better). No help for a sore throat at all. The price for these little drops is ridiculous considering that they don't work & have the worst packaging I've ever seen! The bag doesn't reseal in any way (it's not even designed to TRY). These aren't individually-wrapped, making portability a pain in the neck even if you like these, not to mention losing freshness faster unless you transfer them to an airtight bag/container. Definitely not a product I would EVER recommend.

      Comments about Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops Value Pack, Wild Cherry, 32 ea:

      Being allergic to menthol with asthma & chronic allergies, it's very hard to find effective, natural, and good tasting options. These work well, taste great and last. Also, they are all natural and use recyclable packaging. I like supporting a company that is environmentally responsible.

        These throat drops are very soothing and they taste great. My mouth gets very dry during the night, so I put one in my mouth before I go to sleep and it slowly "melts", keeping my mouth and throat moist.

                  Ok, aside from leaving a coating on your throat they aren't really sore throat medicine any more than sucking on a hard candy is sore throat medicine, but if that is what you are looking for than you are probably missing the point. I loved eating these like candy when I was a kid, and have seriously craved them even since the company disappeared. The new formulation is a little different, maybe a little less waxy, a slight change in flavor, but if you were a fan when these were out before you will not be disappointed. These hit the spot and bring you back twenty years. A little pricey, but worth it.
