~Ricola brand sugar free lemon mint herb throat drops~
Reason for purchase:
I have used the original Ricola drops in the past. When I had a pretty lousy sore throat a few months back and was in the store we shop at. I saw the Ricola brand sugar free lemon mint herb throat drops for a really great price there and knew it would be worth it to give this kind a try. The fact that they are sugar free was also a huge selling point. I prefer to use sugar free candies, and throat drops.
Purchase place and price:
We often shop at a store about 20 minutes away form us in Rhode Island. It is located on Shove street in Fall River Massachusetts and is called Frugal Franks. It looks almost like a warehouse, and they carry tons of items of all kinds, including medicines. The prices are below whole sale more often than not, and we were lucky enough to find the Ricola brand sugar free lemon mint herb throat drops there for one a dollar a bag. I purchased several that day because I know that Ricola is a trusted brand and we can always stand to have some on hand.
