Review: Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops


Cold and flu season is right around the corner! Are you ready?  I am here to tell you about Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops!  For this review, I received a box full of Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops!  They came in the Natural Honey and Wild Cherry Flavors.  What I like the most, was that they are not hard throat drops. These drops are perfect for sore throats. 


About the Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops:

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.  Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops will give quick throat relief to sore throats.  Mr. Pine thought he wouldn't make much money out of this, but he could make people happy and that's more important than money, he thought.  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.



In 1930 Pine Brothers was sold to the Life Savers Company and continued to flourish. Known for its 'soft drop consistency,' Pine Brothers lozenges became a favorite of adults and children alike. The product, which attracted healthiest sales in the eastern and northern states, due to its icy winters, reached its peak popularity in the 1970's. The company was sold by Life Savers, and then, having been re-sold and acquired a number of times, found itself essentially rudderless and under appreciated; this despite a legion of loyal consumers. Cost cutting changes were made to the original recipes, packaging became stale and marketing non-existent; Pine Brothers began to be made overseas. Sales declined. 

Recently, Pine Brothers was acquired by the creator and former owner of Airborne, Victoria Knight-McDowell, for her new company 3 Sisters Home Products™. Much time and effort has been spent locating the original Pine Brothers recipes, redesigning the packaging, and creating an exciting yet classic new look. The natural product is once again being made in America, and is launching nationally in fall 2011. At which time old Mr. Pine, will succeed once again in "making people happy." God bless him!


Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops are for temporary relief of minor discomfort and protection of irritated areas in sore mouth and sore throat.
