Ulysses S. Grant was President, the population of America hovered at 39 million, and the telephone was still a pipe dream, when in 1870 J. Herman Pine hung out a confectionery shingle on 8th Street above Walnut in Philadelphia and, along with his brother, sold their first batch of what they called ‘Pine Brothers Glycerine Tablets.’ In an attempt to relieve his own sore throat and those of his family members, Mr. Pine, a former German confectionery maker, determined that by combining the soothing natural qualities of glycerin with the healing properties of gum acacia, he could sooth and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat. Add in some natural flavoring and a sweetener and voila, Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops were born. “I have discovered something,” Pine wrote, “which will give quick throat relief to thousands afflicted as I was.” He added,”Perhaps I won’t make much money out of this. But I can make people happy, and that’s more important than money.” Mr. Pine was being unduly modest, as his “discovery” would become one of the most successful, most delicious and most unique throat lozenges in the world. Nor has the recipe changed appreciably since it was first introduced to the public over 140 years ago.

These Came in the mail today and they are actual really good! Pretty much everything in them are healthy. The fat and calories aren’t bad too! They are softish and not like most drops you buy in stores. They are full of flavor and best part you cant chew it up so it lasts the full amount. Mine lasted in the mouth for 10 minutes! I love how you can’t chew it up at all so your forced to get the full benefit from the drop and saves money, because the others you can chew up and you have to put another in the mouth. These came in a screwed round container like shown above and is great for purses, diaper bags, pockets, and cars they don’t take much room like the bags would. They are not child proof though so keep that in mind. These cough drops are very unique and I love that. I haven’t even seen these in stores anywhere. Great price since you can’t chew up these drops.
