Why are Luden’s Cough Drops so Uniquely Good?

When you get a little tickle in your throat, nothing works like menthol! William H. Luden invented the menthol cough drop and started selling them along with other candy creations in 1879. The cough drops started gaining notoriety when Luden began handing out samples to the local railroad workers. He continued to work hard over the years to expand his business and improve on the packaging and design to keep everything fresh and flavorful.

It truly is amazing how soothing a Luden’s Cough Drop can be on your throat. Whether it is the beginning of a cold, allergies, or just something strange in the atmosphere like smoke, the relief you experience is truly worth it.  The addition of flavorings, like cherry for example, gives credence to the popular adage from Mary Poppins, “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down,” but all of the Luden’s Cough Drops are packed with flavor and bring relief.
