I love these! One time, at a museum, suddenly my throat became really dry, and I was coughing like crazy (I have asthma). My mom pulled out one of these and I had it, desperate. I usually hate anything herb but peppermint, but I love this! Slight aftertaste, but it's fine. You can't taste the honey (which is good for me, I don't like honey that much), and whatever herbs they put in are good. Before I always asked my mom to get me Halls Strawberry cough drops, which left an aftertaste and hardly did anythings. These are a big improvement.
