Luden's Cough Drops

Today I discovered that our nearby Dollar Store has Luden's Wild Cherry Cough Drops! Many of these recent nights, when I've been up in the wee hours, coughing my head off, sucking on some horrible mentholated thing or other, I've remembered the Luden's cough drops of my childhood, and wished I had them instead. Back then, they came in a white box, but they now come in a plastic bag, which is a bit disappointing in the nostalgia department, but I'm still happy to have them. I haven't tasted them yet, but I remember vividly how they tasted when I was a kid, because I ate them like candy -- they tasted that good.

According to reliable sources online, most cough drops are pretty much equally (in)effective, so I figure there's no sense in torturing myself with menthol when I can suck on tasty "candy" instead.

I'm coughing a lot this evening (even after a very physically undemanding outing to lunch and the Dollar Store today), and so I'm uncertain about how I'll sleep tonight, but I'm comforted by the knowledge that if I'm coughing at 3 a.m., I can have some wild cherry candy from my childhood.
