Oh the memories of being sick as a kid. I secretly loved it when my nose was red and stuffed up and my throat tight and scratchy, because I’d get tons of love, attention, and sympathy from my parents! ….and lots of chicken noodle soup! What I also got was endless amounts of candy! Ok, so not exactly candy, but it sure did taste like it! It was Luden’s Original Cherry Flavored Cough Drops! You MUST remember them, right? They came in a simple white box, wrapped securely in wax paper to hold in their freshness. We had them on every bedside table and in every bathroom in our house and were always the go-to brand to sooth a sore throat.
While the packaging has now changed, the cough drops are still as soothing and delicious as they were 25 years ago! Luden’s® throat drops come in a number of flavors such as the popular Wild Cherry, Sugar-Free Wild Cherry, Wild Honey, Wild Berry (assorted flavors), as well as Orange Vitamin C Supplement Drops. The Orange drops even provide 100% of the daily value of vitamin C. In addition to the cough drop line, Luden’s has introduced its new Luden’s® Moisture Drops which work to moisten dry mouths, a common problem that affects everyone at one time or another. The new line hydrates the mouth with a delicious, mouth-watering Kiwi-Strawberry flavored lozenge.
This company is especially worthy of our support, as it’s been around for over 130 years, was started by a teenager with a vision filled with hope and desire to ease the discomfort of the common cold sufferer, and one that put in long hours to produce enough cough drops to send to our troops during World War II!
