I am a big fan of Burts Bees products because they are all natural. Just like I posted previously on my Ricola cough drop review, I try to stick with all natural products if I can because I think it's best for me in the long run. I like to be able to recognize the ingredients listed and know they are healthy for me. These taste pretty good for a cough drop but I must admit I prefer the Ricola cough drops to these ones. I felt like these worked well initially but then the effect of it soothing my throat wore off pretty quick. I felt like I had to use more of these then I wanted just to achieve the same effect of relief I have gotten with other cough drops before. It in my opinion was a little inconvenient to have to use as many cough drops as I did to help my throat and congestion. I probably wouldn't recommend them for that reason, but they do taste good and like I said, I like that they contain natural ingredients.
