Pine Brothers Softish Cough & Throat Drops {Review}



It's getting to the height of cough and cold season and you're probably looking for a safe and natural way to help soothe raw and sore throats at your home.

Pine Bros. Softish Cough Drops are back after 15 years and are made with the original recipe that is over 140 years old!

They contain Glycerine and Gum Acacia to soothe the throat.

They come in four flavors: Licorice, Lemon Citrus, Natural Honey, and Wild Cherry.

Great news! Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops are made in the USA!

We loved having a supply of Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops at our home this winter. We needed them with all of the coughs that we had! Read on to hear more about how they worked for us.



Last month we were all sick with a cough and were so grateful to have these Pine Brothers Cough Drops to ease our coughs. These "softish" drops really are slightly softer than other cough drops, but not as soft as gummy candy. The softish drops have just a slight amount of give and squishiness to them, but I could not bite through them. I like the consistency and that I was able to bite down on them without them cracking to bits, like regular hard cough drops. I'm inevitably going to chew on my cough drops anyway, so I like that the softish-ness of the Pine Brothers drops allowed me to enjoy these cough drops longer.


The Pine Bros. drops are available in a plastic "puck" or in a bag. They are not individually wrapped (better for the environment!), so I preferred the tin, as they would not spill in my backpack or diaper bag. However, the drops did not go stale or change flavors when left in an open bag for a few days in our cupboard. As for the flavor, my husband and kids enjoyed the cough drops immediately. For me, the drops were more of an acquired taste. I did come to really enjoy the delicious flavors after a few drops. They are not too sweet nor too sour.

Pine Bros. cough drops were very effective at stopping coughs while we were sucking on them (or in my case, gnawing on them). I also noticed that after using a cough drop, my daughter's coughs were less intense. For example, she would be having honking coughs, then take a cough drop, and then just have dry coughs. I also noticed this effect with myself. As a mom, it's important to make my kids comfortable even when they still are sick. Lessening the severity of their coughs was a big relief for all of us!

As a teacher, I really depend on my voice for my job. My cough made my throat achy and my voice scratchy and creaky. If it weren't for the Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops, I don't know what I would have done! These drops not only helped us get through classes at the university without coughing, they also made our time at home more enjoyable. The drops were easy to give to my children and they really enjoyed the drops. I also used the drops before going to bed to help my coughs so that I could go to sleep. They soothed my itching throat so that I could think of other things!
I'm now a big fan of the Pine Bros. Softish Cough Drops and can recommend them because of their simple & time-tested recipe, they stay in your mouth longer, and they help soothe sore throats and made our coughs less severe. You can check them out at the Pine Bros. website. Thanks for reading my Pine Bros. Softish Cough Drops Review!
