In 1870 J.Herman Pine created Pine Brothers along with his brother in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Their first batch was called "Pine Brothers Glycerin Tablets. He was looking for something to sooth his own sore throat and those of his family so he made his own remedy. Mr. Pine was a German Confectionery maker. He combined natural quality of glycerin with healing properties of gum acacia. He also added natural flavor and a sweetener and Pine Brothers Throat Drops began to be sold.
After 15 years Pine Bros is back in stores. It's like one of those comforting products you knew but haven't seen for a while. Now you and your family can use Pine Bros throat drops again for minor sore throat irritations. The drops are softish and chewable and have a nice flavor. I'm not much for any type of throat drop that has a strong flavor and these are perfect. They work great for dry or sore throats and mouths. Pick up a few packs and keep them on hand for this coming cold season.
The throat drops are really soft, easy to use, and taste great. I like them since they soft and not crazy sweet. Not medicine tasting either. Give them a try! Kids over three can use them, and they are only 5 calories a drop. Gluten Free. Made in USA of natural ingredients. Look for them at CVS and other retailers. More flavors coming soon.
You can also buy Pine Brothers in a "puck" container. Pick up a puck and save it for refiling with your favorite flavor or flavors. It's mighty handy for your purse, car, desk drawer, travel, or cupboard.
