I’ve been taking Pine Bros. throat drops since as far back as I can remember. My mama always had some in her purse, and my gramma always had a bag wrapped up in her apron pocket. When we would cough in the house Gramma would be all over my brother and I and giving us cherry drops from Pine Bros. (Wild Cherry). Gramma would say, “Cover your mouth”, when we coughed. “You’ll get germs all over my house”, she would say and pass out the pine drops.
Now today my husband takes the honey Pine Bros. for his throat when he’s singing in his band. Honey is good for the throat because I also can remember gramma putting honey in our tea when we were sick and a tablespoon of whiskey. “Now go to bed”, she would say, “…and sweat it out”. She knew everything my grandmother. You think she had an M.D. diploma. Well, maybe she wasn’t a doctor, but she did know her throat drops for sure. They worked good back then, and they work great now.
Now, if you go to their website you’ll find out their history such as did you know how it started? “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. “I have discovered something,” Pine wrote, “which will give quick throat relief to thousands afflicted as I was.” He added,”Perhaps I won’t make much money out of this. But I can make people happy, and that’s more important than money.” 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. It’s such a fascinating story… (read more)…
