The most terrible time for me while growing up on the East Coast was the season change between Winter to Spring. On top of all the pollen that coated literally everything causing horrible sinus infections, also came colds. Who would want a sinus infection on top of a cold!? Yuck!
Luckily, since moving to the West Coast, I have been grateful for the lack of pollen here. However, colds are still frequent visitor to our family. Ever since I was a kid, around the age of five, I remember my mom would always order me Chinese takeout, Won-ton soup, and get cough drops when I was sick. The only cough drops we ever had in our house was HALLS. My mom would specifically go out of her way and make sure to buy me two packs of the cherry flavor. These two simple items always made me feel so much better!
Even as a grown adult, these two things still have not changed. Our house sticks to using HALLS, and eating Won-ton soup when sick, and that will probably never change. Fortunately, if you are needing some as the seasons here are transitioning back into Spring, the HALLS Honey Lemon and Cherry Flavors are on sale for only $2.99 at the Commissary through the end of January. HALLS also makes Throat Pops for sore throats and coughs for children – how cool is that?! Therefore, children no longer have to use regular cough drops that can be more of a choking hazard vs the pops at a young age. Although you should still supervise them when they have the Throat Pops. Both the strawberry and cherry Throat Pops are also on sale for the same price! So, if I were you I would head over to your local store and stock up while they are on sale. You never know when you might need them.
