My friend told me about these drops when my son was complaining of a sore throat from a constant cough. However, I couldn't find it that week. This week I found myself with a sore throat and we were heading out for a mini family vacation. I couldn't let a sore throat keep me from having fun, so I decided to try to find the throat drops that my friend had dubbed "Magical".
The flavor is ... medicinal. They do a fairly good job making it palatable by making it berry flavored. When it comes to numbing your mouth and throat? This does that. It doesn't half numb your mouth, no no. This reminds me of how my mouth felt after I had my wisdom teeth removed. Totally numb. It didn't touch the pain in my chest, but of course, that's not what it is supposed to do.
Bottom line, if you want to numb your mouth and not feel any pain, this will do it.
