I like a few of the Ricola cough drops, so when I saw the Ricola Green Tea with Echinacea Sugar Free cough drops, I was pretty excited. Echinacea is suppose to be great for helping colds, and I often take it in a gummy form. The one thing that I was not fond of, was that you have to take 2 to get relief. And the second was, my gosh these taste absolutely awful. I could barely get through one, let alone two. And I didn't think they worked as well at helping my cough or soothe my throat as say the cherry ones do. And third, one thing that I really hate is that it has aspartame in it. There are so many alternatives out there today, I wish companies would stop using aspartame. It is so horrible for you. So needless to say, this bag of cough drops went into the trash pretty quick, while I decided to go back to the store and get a cough drop that tasted better, works and doesn't have aspartame in it. And of course some echinacea gummies.
