These get 5 stars for deliciousness! If u wanna be a great mom-give these to your kids lol. Not sure that they help much but they taste like pure candy. I prefer the originals most of the time but the strawberry banana ones are a great break'

I've been using ludens for years and they never failed me. These taste more like candy so they are much more tolerble to take but at the same time they still help soothe your throat.

These are my favorite cough drops. I like how they taste and cool my throat. They don't taste like medicine. They're also affordable and available in my local grocery store.

I received these via Influenster. They're definitely not your typical cough drop - this might be a huge plus for some people, and a fairly large negative for others. I myself err on the side of negative. There is something about the menthol-y taste of cough drops your parents used to make you begrudgingly take to school.

However, that isn't to deter people from Luden's. If you're looking for soothing relief without the medicinal taste these are the best candidates! They taste like candy - which might make you eat a few more than normal!

I got this in my vox box one month and I was skeptical since I'm not the biggest smoothie fan but these are delicious! I would say they're more of a throat soother and less of a "cough drop" but my boyfriend did seem to like them during cold season this fall. I think they have a great taste even though I typically wouldn't be a fan of the flavor. I would have loved to try the other flavors advertised on the back of the package. I will definitely purchase this product!

I received the Watermelon flavor! They were tasty but unfortunately they didn't help my sore throat all too well. I was actually sick when the #HCVOX came in the mail, so I was it was perfect timing to test them out. I find they are more on the candy side rather than the medicinal type of drops. However, cough drops can only do so much so it wouldn't be fair to award this product such a low rating.

I received this product complementary of influenster and I was really surprise by the taste! I was glad I got the strawberry banana ones because I am a s&b flavor fan for everything! The taste was good, sweet, but not to sweet, although I feel like they did not do much to relieve my minor sore throat, so I had to take a hall for that instead. But overall, I was surprised.

I had honestly never heard of Luden's until getting the homecoming voxbox and I was kind of nervous to try them because I don't really like cough drops... But I tried them and they're actually really good! They don't taste medicine-y like most other brands, and they last a long time!

I received this product from Influenster. These are not my first choice for throat drops. I had a sore throat when I received them and was truly excited about them, however, I did not feel they helped sooth my throat. The taste is very flavorful, very sweet! (huge plus for me) I consider them more like a typical candy, rather than throat drops.

Did these have the throat drop 'medicine' taste to them or more of a 'candy' taste?

Which flavor is your favorite? So far, I've tried cherry and strawberry-banana, both are delicious.

Does this taste like actual strawberries and banana or is it more of an artificial taste? I've bought the lemon flavor, but wanted to branch out.
