Getting older, my doc put me on blood pressure medicine, to reduce it, I guess. 3 weeks later, wintertime, I get a cough/cold. Cold goes away, cough continues. 12 hour cough stuff lasts 2 hours. Doc shoots me with anti something and a course of antibiotics. I take dozens of cough drops a day, 6 or more at night. Looked up blood pressure medicine + side effects, it comes up with “cough.” Doc says oops, 10% get that. Try another BP rx. Took another month for the cough to end! Pay attention to side effects
The link to Amazon has 2 bags of 19 for $6.26 prime delivered, 5 bags would be 2 1/2 times this i.e. $15.65 not $31 (your comparison you probably missed it was a 2 pack but it’s misleading) and non Vip members pay shipping so they would pay $10. If you went for original flavor there’s a 50 pack for $3.79 x2 = $7.58 it’s add on product so you have to buy more at Amazon but you get one more mint. Not much of a deal for non-Vip-ers.
I got the last deal of these…like 495 for $20, err sumpthin’ like that…granted they are delicious and nice to have…kinda wish I didn’t but that bilk deal, as I forget how many I have in my car…box is still there…I thought for sure I’d be handing 'em out to friends, coworkers, strangers who are annoying me with their incessant cough…nope! Just like everything else I buy here in bulk/quantity, I forget and unintentionally hoard. But please buy these, so I don’t have to! Thanks!
Interesting timing - I’m miserable with a cold today.
Yet, if I were to order these, by the time they get here I won’t even remember I had a cold.
I do keep the regular flavor on hand at all times - taking a Ricola for an occasional irritated throat is a hell of a lot easier than trying to quit smoking, and so much more rational - so it’s too bad these aren’t those.
Worst part of a cold is the awareness that there is another one, lurking in the corridor, just waiting for you to touch that boogie ridden doorknob. It’s just a matter of where and when. We are doomed . Destined to get yet another crummy cold.
