Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops review and giveaway

The Pine Brothers package states that it has been soothing Americans throats for over 140 years-since 1870. Well I am not that old, but they are a tried and true brand for sure. You might remember Pine Bros as a kid or when you saw your Grandparents using Pine Brothers softish throat drops.

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 Softish 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 delicious 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.

 Closed: Giveaway: For your chance to win a pack (not puck) of the two flavors here, leave a comment on this post telling me what you like or remember about Pine Brothers from your younger days.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
