Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops Soothing America's Throats for over 140 Years!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops have been around for a long time!  I mean, I remember taking them when I was a kid!  But really, they've been around even longer than that!  Here's some information I learned while reading the history on their website:

The year was 1870 when Herman Pine (and his brother) sold the first batch of  Pine Brothers Glycerin Tablets in my hometown of Philadelphia!

Life Savers Company purchased Pine Brothers in 1930 and the drops continued to sell well.  Especially in the eastern and northern states where they experience cold, icy winters  The site also states that Pine Brothers were most popular during the 1970's, which is when I remember using them.

After being sold and re-sold a number of times, along with some cost-cutting recipe changes and production overseas, sales began to decline.

Most recently, Pine Brothers has found a new owner.  One that has taken the time to find the original recipes and create new packaging with the same classic look.  One that has brought production back to America!
Pine Brothers was launched nationally in 2011.

Now, I'd like to share my experiences with Pine Brothers Throat Drops.  Then and now.

When I was a kid, I loved taking Pine Brothers throat drops when I had a cough or sore throat.  I can still see the box of cherry flavored throat drops on the ledge of my little metal school desk!  So much tastier than all of those other products on the market, they seemed like a special treat when I wasn't feeling well.

I'm happy that I can now share the same delicious drops with Grace when she has a sore scratchy throat!  While we were incredibly lucky this year and skipped a lot of the colds that were going around, I suspect that Grace's allergies will be in full swing this spring and summer.  Causing her some throat irritation.  She knows to ask for what she calls "medicine candy" when her throat feels scratchy.

Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops are available in a variety of flavors:

  • Natural Honey
  • Wild Cherry 
  • Licorice
And in 2015-16, a new flavor will be launched: 
  • Lemon-Citrus
I haven't tried any of the other flavors, but have always loved the Wild Cherry drops!  

Since talking to others about Pine Brothers, I've heard many say that they are having trouble finding them when they shop.  Here's a link to the "where to buy" page on their website.  You can also shop online.
