There is nothing worse than a bad cough or cold. I am currently in that situation and not enjoying it all. I stand by Ricola and have so for years. The main reason that I like these cough drops so much is that they are not menthol. I know that some people like that, but I am not a big fan. I also don't like them to taste like cough syrup which is another reason that I love these so much.
The regular package has 26 in the bag, they are individually wrapped and have a minty taste. I always describe it as mint tea. They come in a variety of other flavors as well, such as, honey-lemon and cherry mint, but I stick the the original. They say they come from Switzerland, but I am sure they are made in the USA as well.
You can find these at any drugstore or grocery store, but I try to get them on sale. If you are looking for a great tasting cough drop that works, then def get this product. They are my life savers during the cold season.
