Yikes! It looks like maybe there's no such thing! I have a nasty throat infection- weird, in the summer? I can't tolerate HFCS or corn syrup. Shoot, I wish someone knew something.

I have just gotten (getting) over one myself - finally went to the doc, thinking they can't do much for me but I got to the point where I couldn't swollow any pills and was having a hard time drinking - aparently I have strep throat!!! My kids have had it, not right now, but I have never had it and I have probably had it for a week before I finally went to the doc. Now I know what they put up with!!!

Thanks Molly. I was going to order the chocolate items as I really need to put on some weight and they are out of them. I will order the tart sampler for now.

St. Claire candies are good...but one warning on the cough drops--some have echinecea and a few other herbs in them. So, if you don't want to be taking those don't get them. The product I'm talking about is here: http://www.econatura...oduct/TIN-OW-TH I like the candies...but they seem to make my throat sore if I eat too many of them. Acidic maybe? They are definitely worth buying, but if you are like me, too many might make a sore throat worse.

Lisa and Kate-- My recommendation is Thayer's Slippery Elm drops. This is what I use for a sore throat. Ingredients are slippery elm bark, dextrose, magnesium stearate, natural cherry flavor (you can get plain too), sucrose, vegetable stearine. Preservative, sodium, menthol, gluten, dairy free. The sweetner is corn derived. It doesn't say anything about soy, so you could ck on that. But I don't see any obvious soy on the label. See their products here: http://www.thayers.com/ They should be in any major health/natural food store.

Thank you, Molly and Kate and Jen and all!
Molly, yes, I have the peppermints (very tiny); I didn't know of their other things so I'm going to try some- thank you! Kate, I'm starting to wonder if this is strep myself although I've never had it, only my son. I now have lost my voice as well. Hoping you're feeling better. And,Jen, thank you for the Thayer's info, will check that, too!

If you are in the mood to try a fun science experiment that results in a very pure rock candy, try this:

Yeah, I loved it when I was a kid, & my kids loved it when I did it with them!

It also occurs to me, OceanGirl, that you could make yourself a batch of simple syrup as a truly simple cough/throat syrup to take by the spoonful. Simple syrup is nothing more than equal parts sugar & boiling water, stirred until the sugar dissolves. We keep it on hand in a jar in the fridge, to sweeten iced tea & homemade lemonade-- & it is also the preferred food of hummingbirds, in case you have a feeder!

This is a good idea--I have always used honey and lemon juice stired together and warmed.
