Pine Bros Sore Throat Drops Review

     I recently had the opportunity to be able to check out these sore throat drops by Pine Bros. I had let my family try them out too. My opinions about them is 100% my own and not influenced by anyone or the company at all. When i first received them my daughter said Mom what did you get candy. I told her no these are sore throat drops and they are to help you when your throat hurts you.


     My husband was the first to try it out and he said that he liked the fact how it moisturized his throat more then anything. He did say though that he did like the honey ones more then the cherry, because the cherry ones reminds him of medicine from when he was a kid. My youngest daughter wanted to try it one day because she said that her throat was bothering her. So i gave her the option of which one to try and at first she tried the honey ones and she spit it out, she said that she did not like it at all. Later she tried the Cherry one and said that was better for her but she doesn't like the smell of them at first though. Which i find surprising for my daughter because she is super picky about what she tries at all.

These are the ones here that i received to do the review on. I would have to say that i do like the fact that they are a company that have been around since 1870. Also when the package says that they are softish they really are just softish too. I will say that i was a little hesitant to try a new product since i am really the kind of person that stick to what i know works. I will have to say that i like the cherry more then the honey ones and that would just be my own personal opinion.

Here is some information about the company:
Ulysses S. Grant was President, the population of America hovered at 39 million, and the telephone was still a pipe dream, when in 1870 J. Herman Pine hung out a confectionery shingle on 8th Street above Walnut in Philadelphia and, along with his brother, sold their first batch of what they called 'Pine Brothers Glycerine Tablets.' In an attempt to relieve his own sore throat and those of his family members, Mr. Pine, a former German confectionery maker, determined that by combining the soothing natural qualities of glycerin with the healing properties of gum acacia, he could sooth and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat. Add in some natural flavoring and a sweetener and voila, Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops were born. "I have discovered something," Pine wrote, "which will give quick throat relief to thousands afflicted as I was." He added,"Perhaps I won't make much money out of this. But I can make people happy, and that's more important than money." Mr. Pine was being unduly modest, as his "discovery" would become one of the most successful, most delicious and most unique throat lozenges in the world. Nor has the recipe changed appreciably since it was first introduced to the public over 140 years ago.

In 1930 Pine Brothers was sold to the Life Savers Company and continued to flourish. Known for its 'soft drop consistency,' Pine Brothers lozenges became a favorite of adults and children alike. The product, which attracted healthiest sales in the eastern and northern states, due to its icy winters, reached its peak popularity in the 1970's. The company was sold by Life Savers, and then, having been re-sold and acquired a number of times, found itself essentially rudderless and under appreciated; this despite a legion of loyal consumers. Cost cutting changes were made to the original recipes, packaging became stale and marketing non-existent; Pine Brothers began to be made overseas. Sales declined.

Recently, Pine Brothers was acquired by the creator and former owner of Airborne, Victoria Knight-McDowell, for her new company 3 Sisters Home Products™. Much time and effort has been spent locating the original Pine Brothers recipes, redesigning the packaging, and creating an exciting yet classic new look. The natural product is once again being made in America, and is launching nationally in fall 2011. At which time old Mr. Pine, will succeed once again in "making people happy." God bless him!

  4. Wow! I think that's cool. Throat drops can definitely sooth and calm, while being kind of a confection as well. However, you shouldn't be too dependent on those because you're not only dealing with just the scrapes, but also the strains on your throat that you should ought to watch out for. Take care always!
