Cough Drops

Okay, it's me again. I usually have a long introduction about now but I thought I should just cut to the chase with this blog post. And the chase that I am cutting to isn't Chevy (the actor, not the Chevrolet nickname), it's the fact that the makers of cough drops hate their customers.

Seriously folks, I freaking hate the taste of most cough drops. I think Halls is about the only brand that makes cough drops that taste alright. Okay, the problem here is that the other day I ran out of Halls cough drops and all I had around the house was Meijer brand "strawberry" cough drops. The problem is that those cough drops didn't even remotely taste like strawberries. No, it tasted more like raw old fish. Now, I understand that cough drops can't always taste good because if they tasted too good, they probably wouldn't be too effective. Still, why lie and say it is strawberry flavored when it is old fish flavored. You know, it might actually taste like sweaty arm pits now that I think about it. Talk about false advertising.

Well, I better get going so I get pop some more delicious cough drops. Take care everyone and be safe!


  1. If they tasted good, they'd be candy!

  2. That may be the case, but I still say it's false advertising to say it tastes like anything but nasty. lol

  3. Luden's Wild Cherry flavor cough drops were great, and very popular with kids growing up in the 60's. However, they didn't really work very well. They tasted good though.LOL
