Mom Central contacted me recently to see if I’d like to participate in an “allergy relief” blog tour for Halls cough drops. Well, of course I did: Cough drops are the only thing that temporarily alleviated my crazy coughing before the dr. came up with the adult onset asthma diagnosis this winter.
So, they sent me a pack of honey-lemon Halls to try, which I did while I was in New York sitting in a BEA session and my asthma kicked up. (Different pollen? Pollution? Lots of walking? who knows…) I prefer the sugar-free, but these did the trick — if you cough while a world-famous author is talking, I think they kick you out. 😉 Anyway, I like that they immediately help deal with symptoms while you’re waiting for your medication to work, and I have a stash in my laptop bag, my purse, my desk, my… The best time to stock up is in the winter, when all the deals for cold relief products kick in.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Halls and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate. My policy on Mashup Mom is to provide honest reviews and to only participate in blog tours for products I’d ordinarily use/feel comfortable using with my own family.
