I have a better solution: Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops. They were created by a confectioner back in the 1800's because he was trying to make a sore throat remedy his family. They are made from glycerin so they are softish, and the flavor is more like candy than that awful cough drop taste we all are so familiar with! Fast forward 140 years and Pine Bros is still using the same recipe, and they are a great way for old and young alike to soothe their sore throats.
They come in several flavors, and I can attest to the Natural Honey and Cherry. Neither are super sweet which I like, but they aren't medicinal tasting either which is even better. They are soothing and sort of coat the throat a bit so you can swallow without feeling like you are being cut with razor blades! They don't cause sore tongues because they are soft, yet they aren't so soft that you can just chew them up immediately. It's a nice combination. I don't even mind letting the kids use them because I know they don't have anything in them that should make me worry too much, and the kids love the flavors!
