While I would love to be celebrating this lovely Leap Day bounding about town with the convertible top down, it’s raining, I don’t have a convertible, and I do have a cold! Luckily, we’ve got quite the cough drops assortment here at Blair Candy, so my coworkers aren’t troubled with hearing my slightly pathetic coughing all day long. Do I feel sorry for myself when I have a cold? Oh, you bet your Kleenex I do! But why suffer at home alone when I can come to work and give everyone ‘please feel sorry for me’ puppy dog eyes? Besides, they wouldn’t know what to do without me! That’s what I tell myself, anyhoo. And, this is just your run of the mill cold so common this time of year, so I best be saving my sick days for more serious symptoms and let my Ludens cough drops help me tackle my tasks.
But you didn’t stop by to hear me whine about my cold, so I’ll save that for my coworkers. For you, I’ll bring a compendium of cough drops to consider for when that cold bug gives you a bit of a bite. We’ve got a few tried-and-true favorites that have become tricky to find in stores, all ready to tell your cough to hit the road and keep on running! Let’s take a look at 3 favorites…
Ludens Cough Drops – While I’ll gladly take any cough drop I can get when I feel that ‘cough is coming’ tickle, Ludens have been a favorite since I was a kid. The Wild Cherry flavor is my top choice, with Honey Lemon following close behind. Cool Menthol is a good option for times the cough is kicking things up a notch, and Honey Licorice reminds me of something my Grandma might have loved. All in all, you can’t go wrong with candy-like Luden’s, but only Wild Cherry has my heart!
Smith Brothers Cough Drops – These cough suppressant wonders trace their beginning back to 1847! Our customers have given them a 5-star rating, and we understand why. Quite simply – they work! Alyce, a reviewer of Smith Brothers cough drops, notes, “These cough drops work better for me than any other brand. They do not leave that lingering after taste so many other brands leave in your mouth and throat.” Do you find most cough drops you’ve tried leave an aftertaste? Maybe it’s time to trust the Smith Brothers with your cold!
Honees Cough Drops – We wouldn’t go so far as to say you’ll be glad to have a cold, but if you’re a honey lover like me, you will find Honees cough drops a pleasure to enjoy! I’ve never come across another cough drop quite like them – each brings a pure liquid honey center that is ever-so-slightly-sweet and wonderfully soothing. Available in your choice of Honey, Milk & Honey, or Menthol Eucalyptus, there’s something for everyone. Gerry Stack, a reviewer of Honees cough drops, says these are, “Absolutely the best and most effective cough drop I have ever taken. It works so fast and lasts much longer than any other.” Glad you love them, too, Gerry! The next Milk & Honey I take is dedicated to you.
