The flavor of these are amazing to point you want to eat them even when your not sick. I don't know if these are the best cough drops or if they get the job done. Every time I have eaten them, I never payed attention to whether they work or not, just that they taste good.
These cough drops do taste pretty awesome. Great flavors but as far as helping a cough, they are nothing more than just candy. My husband and I both tried these and we loved the taste but they did nothing for our sore throats.
As a professional speaker, I always have Halls in my bag. I carry the traditional Halls Menthol Cough drops when I am fighting a cold, but most of the time I buy Halls Breezers. These are super flavorful drops that keep your throat moist and sooth mild irritations (like from talking too much or allergies).
These are really tasty and I could imagine giving them to a kid with a cough. For me I feel the original cherry flavor works better because I get more of the minty effect on my throat than I do with this one. Very candy like
