You have a sore throat? Instead of cough drops, substitute candy. Cough drops are B.S. anyway, and this way, you get the sugar to hop you up, along with the taste. Because ever since those Pine Bros. dandies disappeared, cough drops taste like highway gravel coated in menthol. We would rather be waterboarded than pop a Halls.
Hard candy is best—Lemon Drops, Atomic Fireballs, Runts (especially good for children) and even Gobstoppers—but we find any sugar candy will do. Just no candy bars, but that goes without saying, does it not?
