Pine Brothers Review

Pine Brothers has a long and unique history dating back to 1870. I won't give you every little detail, but lets just say they were very popular for a long time. As with everything, things changed, times changed and the economy changed. Pine Bros. was sold and in trying to save money some recipes got changed and products began being made over seas. Sales dropped and for awhile you couldn't find Pine Bros.

Recently they were aquired by 3 Sisters Home Products. Much time and effort was put into locating the original Pine Bros recipes. Packages were redesigned to give them a classic yet new look. Now Pine Bros is once again being produced in the US.

The line of Softish Throat drops has been reintroduced to markets across the US in two delicious flavors: Wild Cherry and Soothing Honey.

You are probably wondering what makes these so special. Well they aren't like regular hard throat drops in that they are "softish".  They have a firm yet "gummy" like texture that is very soothing. Both the Wild Cherry and Honey flavors are all natural and actually very tasty. I know that when my throat is sore, itchy or I have a cough, I tend to cringe at throat lozenges because they usually taste awful or if they do taste good they don't work. These have a great flavor, work well and I enjoy the unique texture.  As an added plus, the red color of the Wild Cherry isn't artificial and in fact comes from Elderberry Concentrate.

These can be purchased nationwide at your local CVS store. I plan on keeping them on hand this winter at all times. The round dispensing tub is perfect for a purse or glovebox too! For even more information you can visit the Pine Bros website.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
