So these things have become an essential aspect of my daily diet. Even though my cough has faded, I continue to eat them because they’re just too addicting. They taste like candy – and the package clearly promises its healthiness too, namely that each drop contains 100% daily value of vitamin C.
But is it still considered healthy to eat more than five Halls Defense cough drops a day? What about ten? The pros are that each one is only 15 calories and 4 carbohydrates, so they’re not a problem in that department. However, the suggested use the cough drop’s website states is that one drop should be taken four times a day. I wonder if these seemingly harmless little drops are actually drugs, as my friend said (I do not know if she was serious at the time), because it contains echinacea root and should not be eaten for eight weeks consecutively.
This is one of the many things I ponder in my free time.
As an ending note, I will explain the title of this post, even though it is obvious – I bite on cough drops. I attempt to suck on them and let them sit idly in my mouth, but inevitably I chomp away and reduce the candy to smithereens.
