Usually when I get sick, it starts out with a runny nose and a sore throat. The cough doesn't come until a day or so later. Before this happens, I like to go out and get all the remedies to help me get over my cold faster.
One of the products that I buy are Halls Cough Drops. They usually help right away and they taste really good. Within minutes they sooth my throat and keep it moist so that I don't cough.
I also like to use them when my throat is dry and I have nothing else to use like water or other hard candy. I keep them not just at work but at work and in my purse.
They come in packages of twenty five or just in a gum like pack of ten. Those are easy because they fit really easy into my purse or pocket for easy use.
Halls makes several differnet kinds of flavors like black cherry, citrus, and original.
I would reccomend these for anyone who is looking to sooth their cold or keep their throat wet evnen if you are not sick.
