I recently had a horrible cough due to a cold that I just couldn't seem to get over. Whenever I feel a cold coming on I always stock up on a bag of Halls, either their Refresh which is my favorite, or their vitamin c selection.
Halls Refresh come in really delisious fruity flavors, with a touch of cooling mint. A really great change from the awful tasting stuff that are made for coughs and sore throats, as it is when you are feeling sick and not too good you don't want to have to gag on that gross medicinal taste!
Halls Refresh are sugar free, they replace the sugar with sucralose(Splenda) and acesulfame-potassium, therefore you will not get that laxative effect like you would if it contained sugar alcohols!
I currently have the Juicy Strawberry flavor, it tasts like strawberry, sweet, and like candy! One lozenge has 3g carbohydrates and 5g calories.
These little lozenges add alot of flavor and moisture in your mouth and throat, they add a coolinf feeling in your throat, mouth and throat that lasts. Most importantly they work FAST on coughs, they eliminated that scratchy choking feeling in my throat due to a sore throat, and the cooling effect in my chest helped a great deal with my cough.
I highly recommend these for coughs and sore throats!
