My mom use to buy them for us when we weren't feeling well or for our dry throats. I love that they don't have a medicinal taste to them. They have always kept my throat moist and soothed. I love the soft chewy texture and delicious taste. My favorite has always been the Wild Cheery. The Natural Honey is very good too. I like placing the honey drops in a hot cup of tea and letting them dissolve. They are also delicious for keeping my mouth moist as well. There are currently 4 flavors of Pine Bros available; Natural Honey, Wild Cherry, Lemon-Citrus and Licorice.
Pine Brothers Throat Drops are vegan, gluten free and only 5 calories each. They can be found in the cough drop aisle, but remember, they are not a cough drop, they are a throat drop. There are no medicinal or questionable ingredients in their product. They are all natural.
Now for the exciting news!
Pine Brothers is coming out with two new products! They are Vitamin C Orange and Sugar Free Cherry! Two great flavors with added benefits! The Sugar Free Cherry can be found at Harris Teeter, Harmon and ShopRite stores. The Vitamin C Orange can be found at Kinney Drug. However, both flavors can be found on the Pine Brothers website at www.pinebros.com. They are packed with delicious flavor and that great soft texture that I love.
Did you know that Pine Bros. Throat Drops have been on the market for over 140 years? Here is the story of how they were invented:
Ulysses S. Grant was President and the population of America hovered at 39 million, when in 1870 J. Herman Pine hung out a confectionery shingle on 8th Street above Walnut in Philadelphia, and sold his first batch of what he called ‘Pine Brothers Glycerin Tablets.’ In an attempt to relieve his own sore throat, Mr. Pine, a former German confectionery maker, combined the soothing natural qualities of plant glycerin with the healing properties of gum acacia into one softish drop. By doing so, he discovered that he had created a product that could sooth and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat. Add in some natural flavoring and sweetener and 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.” Mr. Pine was being unduly modest, as his “discovery” would become one of the most effective, most delicious and most unique throat lozenges in the world. Nor has the recipe changed appreciably since it was first introduced to the public over 140 years ago.
