File this new product from Sucrets, a name brand that moms have trusted for 75 years, under, “Why hasn’t someone ever thought of this?!”
It doesn’t matter if it’s 40 degrees outside and sleeting, my girls love popsicles and ice cream. What better way to soothe a sore throat then with a medication disguised as a frozen treat? We received two boxes of Sucrets ICE last week to test out and unfortunately my 6-year-old woke up with a sore throat and fever Tuesday, which I feared was strep throat. She was actually excited to test out Sucrets ICE and trust me, she doesn’t normally get “excited” about medicine.
The newest member of the Sucrets family, Sucrets ICE works like a lozenge, but in frozen form. The cooling ice pop provides immediate relief for sore and irritated throats, giving the active ingredients, Pectin and Menthol, time to kick in. Sucrets ICE also contains Echinacea and Zinc. Just pop the Sucrets ICE packets in your freezer and they’re ready in one hour.
Available in grape and pomegranate flavors, each package of Sucrets ICE comes with six single-use pouches that freeze in just an hour. For adults and children 3 years of age and older, Sucrets ICE will slowly melt in their mouths, and can be repeated every two hours. Sucrets ICE is a great alternative to sore throat lozenges that kids tend to resist and that can also be a choking hazard for younger children. It’s also impossible to get kids to gargle with warm salt water, which is what my mom always recommends to soothe a sore throat.
What over the counter medications or home remedies do you give your children when they complain of a sore throat?
