Ulysses S. Grand was president, the year was 1870 when former German confectionery maker J. Herman Pine and his brother went into business making Pine Brothers Glycerine Tablets naming them Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops. He wanted to make something that would sooth a sore throat, 140 years later they are still producing this great product.
Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops come in four flavors; Honey and Wild Cherry; Licorice and Lemon Citrus will be added soon. I was able to sample the Wild Cherry and Honey. While the wild cherry is my favorite , my son in law prefers the honey. My daughter who is all about anything honey loved the wild cherry. My husband and son really don't care about flavors all they want is something that works.
I didn't think I had ever used Pine Brothers before this. As soon as they arrived a niggling of childhood memories flooded my mind. They looked so familiar, and then when I tasted one, it was like my mom was standing next to me saying "Kimberly Donee put it in your mouth and suck on it, stop playing around." Everything about them came rushing back to me, the softish chewy texture that you couldn't quite chew, the sweet cherry flavor that was almost like candy and the soothing relief to tired sore throats. To me this was an instant touch of home..
My daughter is a phone secretary and has to talk a lot. Her voice often goes horse by the end of the day. She loves Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops, and takes them to work. The drops coat her throat and makes it easy to keep talking and thus she says keeps her sweet disposition. We both like the tins that are now plastic the small round containers are convenient and easily can be carried in a purse or pocket.
