Pine Bros Throat Drops Review and Giveaway!

In 1870, J. Herman Pine hung out a confectionery shingle on 8th Street above Walnut in Philadelphia and along with his brother, sold their first batch of what they called "Pine Brothers Glvcerine Tablets" In an attempt to relieve his own sore throat and those of his family members.  Mr. Pine, a former German confectionery marker, determined that by combining the soothing natural qualities of glyverin with the healing properties of gum acacia.  He could sooth and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat.  Add in some natural flavoring and a sweetener and voila.  Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops were born.  "I have discovered something" Pine wrote.  "Which will give quick throat relief to thousands afflicted as I was." He added. "Perhaps I won't make much money out of this.  But I can make people happy, and that's more important than money."

Recently, Pine Brothers was acquired by the creator and former owner of Airborne.  Victoria Knight-McDowell.  For her new company 3 Sisters Home Products.  Much time and effort has been spent locating the original Pine Brothers recipes.  redesigning the packaging, and creating an exciting yet classic new look.  The natural product is once again being made in America, and is launching nationally in fall 2011.

I recently was able to try the Natural Honey and Wild Cherry Flavors.  I remember having these when I was a young child in the 80's.  I do not like cough drops or sore throat drops. The medicine in them is overpowering.  When I tried the Pine Bros Throat Drops, I was thrilled that it didn't have an overpowering medicine taste to it.  It worked great on my sore and itchy throat! They were softish and Chewy.  It was hard for about 10 minutes and then it started to become a gummy like texture which I could chew on.  I will definitely be purchasing these for years to come.

The little pucks are great for toting around your purse, car, diaper bag, etc.  These are safe to give to children over the age of 3.  The best part of the Pine Bros Throat Drops, they are only 5 calories each!!  not bad for someone watching their calorie intake.  You can purchase these at CVS or online.

I personally was sent a box of 24 pucks of Pine Bros Throat Drops.
Because I believe in this product, I want to give my readers some pucks to try for themselves!
I will have 2 winners.  Each winner will receive 8 pucks - 4 pucks of Wild Cherry and 4 pucks of Natural Honey.
