Olbas Pastilles (Herbal Cough Drops)
Perfect "in between" lozenge
I saw a recommendation for Olba's Pastilles on a blog by a Broadway actress and decided to try them. These are small and start out with an intense blast of throat soothing menthol then the flavor mellows to a wintergreen taste that keeps your mouth moist for a few hours. These are not as medicinal or as sugary sweet as most lozenges commonly sold in the U.S. They suit for frequent use in between a breath mint and a true "cough drop".

Love these. They last much longer than a mint and are so helpful when you are in a situation where you can not drink a sip of water, but want something for your mouth. A bonus is they help to open your sinuses and even can help to freshen your breath. I just don't like the packaging as I have to cut it open with scissors to get to it, which is not convenient when traveling or on the road, but once you have the pouch cut it is fine.

Best Cough Drop Around
This is the most effective cough drop I have ever used. Be warned that it is very strong and medicinal tasting. But that’s a small price to pay for something that really works and stops my coughing.

Great Cough Drops
These are the best cough drops I have ever used and they are herbal. They have a very strong methol taste and I find them very effective.

Quiets Your Cough
This is the best cough drop I've ever used. If you have a tickle in your throat, it will go away quickly as soon as you put one of these drops in your mouth. The vapors open up your sinuses so you can breath easily too, and they last a long time.

This is the best. One or two of these Pastilles and your sinuses and nose and cough are cleared up. Best Purchase I made in cough drops
