I haven't been too big of a Halls fan, until my husband insisted that these be purchased during a grocery store trip. Needless to say, once the cold hit our family, the Halls Mentho-Lyptus Cough Drops were completely necessary to helping our family make it through the sickness. The cough drops suppressed my cough and helped to take away some of the burning in my throat. I am not a huge fan of menthol tasting cough products, so the taste wasn't preferable. I would recommend these cough drops. Congestion Relief My throat felt a lot clearer and I felt there was less overall mucus in my throat when I used these cough drops. It took away the scratching, burning pain that often comes from a sore throat. Chest Congestion Relief I felt like there was less pressure in my chest when I used these cough drops. Relief of Aches & Pains Besides in my throat, these cough drops didn't really help with any of my other aches and pains at all. Cough Suppression I was coughing less when I used these cough drops.
