PINE BROS. Softish Throat Relief Drops Review

I am always keeping cough drops in my house & in my purse. Sickness hits my family a lot so I always like to be prepared. I like to keep sugar free lifesavers or hard candies with me as well for when my mouth gets dry which happens often. I heard about Pine Bros. Throat Drops and I was excited to give them a try.


Pine Bros. was started in 1870 by Herman Pine. If you don’t know the name, it’s probably because Pine Bros. popularity peaked in the 1970s, after having been sold to the Life Savers Company in the 1930s.

After the 1970s, Pine Bros. was sold by Life Savers and acquired and resold to a number of other companies.Just recently Pine Bros. was acquired by the owners of Airborne. Much time was taken to find the original packaging and use the original recipe. This product is also now made entirely in the United States.


3 different flavor varieties, and they come in bags or convenient containers.


The flavors of these drops are Black Licorice, Wild Cherry and Natural Honey.  They come in Value Sized bags which give you 32 drops, and also come in convenient container which holds 26 drops. I love the container since I can just put it in my purse or keep in my car. The bags are great for keeping at home.

What I think is unique about these drops is they definitely are “softish!” They aren’t too soft and not too hard, more along the lines of a hard gummy.  I tried all of the flavors and they all tasted great. Each of them have a nice mild flavor, not overpowering like most hard candies or cough drops. They are all natural, vegan and gluten-free.


Wild Cherry flavored Throat Drop


These drops did come in handy this week because my throat has been very scratchy. They really did make my throat feel better and soothed it. I like that these drops aren’t meant for a cough and I can take them just to soothe my irritated or sore throat.  These drops are also all natural and aren’t full of artificial ingredients which is a huge plus! Here’s the complete list of ingredients for the Wild Cherry throat drops: Gum Acacia, Sugar, Corn Syrup, Glycerine, Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Colored with Elderberry Concentrate, Sunflower Oil and Carnauba Wax.


Natural Honey flavored drops in a convenient container for on the go!

With winter on its way, I definitely recommend trying these drops to soothe your sore throat, cough or scratchy throat.

  1. Oh I dread the scratchy throat that comes with Winter! I need to stock up on cough drops before it gets here!

  2. A container makes it easy to carry the Pine Bros Softish throat drops around. I’ll look for them in Natural Honey flavor so we’re ready for the sore throat bouts that are on their way.

  3. Catherine S says:

    These sound like great throat drops. It is that time of year and it seems like someone in the house is always sick.

  4. There is nothing worse than having a scratchy throat! I need to pick some of these up for my daughter who has celiac since they are gluten free.

  5. I like the container too! Inevitably, I get a tickle and a cough in the most inopportune moments!

  6. I love that these cough drops don’t have artificial colors in them. While my twins are both sensitive to artificial color, one of them is deathly allergic to it and I have a hard time finding cough drops without a zillion dyes in them!

  7. I have heard of Pine Bros. I haven’t tried them, but am def. willing to. 🙂

  8. I have never heard of this brand but it sounds great! My son rather use throat drops than take medicine!

  9. definitely great to stock up before the dry winter months come along. I love any wild cherry flavored lozenge so I’ll be looking out for these
