It SOUNDED like an easy idea. And really for the most part it was. However, we've been fairly healthy this winter and weren't in need of these right away. So I made them (using the Lego mold I had from Noah's 7th party) and put them on a plate to save in the cupboard for later. Saving them? Well, it was a good idea, but in reality... this is what I ended up with.
Apparently, they aren't a savable cough drop. Oh, well. The flavor in them was yummy, and we kids enjoyed sucking on a piece, cough or not. I added some fresh lemon to mine as well as a little cinnamon. They turned out flavorful and full of good stuff for you. Without all the extras.
Not sure if I'd call these a failure or a success. They did taste good and I do think they'd soothe a cough (although we haven't had any practical application yet). They are quick and easy, but needed to be made just as we needed them. So I think I'll keep these in mind for later and hopefully our healthy streak will keep going.
