Dear Luden’s Throat Drops,

When I was in grade school we weren’t allowed to eat candy in class, but if you pretended to have a slight cough you were allowed to have a Luden’s at your desk. I pretended to cough a lot! Mostly because I liked candy (I still do). I have to admit I occasionally still get nostalgic for the taste, and if I try hard enough I can bring that Wild Cherry flavor forward in my brain, and it’s almost like I can actually taste it!

As an adult I can have a Luden’s whenever I like, and I can’t remember when the last time I had one was. I think I might just run out and buy some this weekend!

My questions to you:

1. Are there any adverse effects to long term usage (have I damaged myself permanently through my youthful discretions)?
2. Do I still have to pretend to have a cough to enjoy a Wild Cherry throat drop?
