    Ricola Herbs just sound so healthy and natural! I love all of the new flavors.



  2. christina aliperti on December 18, 2014 at 9:00 pm

    I am physically prepared for cold and flu season but I don’t think I am mentally prepared for the cold weather here. I have always loved Ricola products. Thank you for the tips!



  3. Chrystal @ YUM eating on December 18, 2014 at 11:37 am

    I love Ricola but I am not a fan of how most of them taste. They sure to work good so I buy them based on that. They aren’t horrible, but have this weird taste. Hard to explain. But I’d rather they work than taste like candy!



  4. Amy Lynn Desrosiers on December 18, 2014 at 12:20 pm

    You can never have enough of these products to get you through the winter. Love Ricola products too!



  5. Christie on December 18, 2014 at 12:09 pm

    I always have a few packed in my purse. So important during winter!



    • Marina on December 18, 2014 at 7:11 pm

      Couldn’t agree with you more. A must have purse item for this time of year.



  6. Gabriel Bregg on December 18, 2014 at 10:39 am

    When I was in basic training, we called these “private crack’ because they were one thing we were allowed to have that was candy-ish. Since we were doing a lot of outside work in the winter in Missouri, they were nice to have around.



  7. Rachelle J on December 18, 2014 at 10:15 am

    I LOVE those things! That are a God send when I get sick. It seems like everyone around me has the flu, I’m just praying (and washing my hands like crazy) that my family and I are spared this year!



  8. Racquel Schroder-Bregg on December 18, 2014 at 6:25 am

    We already faced a nasty bout of the crud – high fevers then hand, foot, and mouth. It’s hard to prepare for cold season but you have given me some great ideas!



  9. ourfamilyworld on December 17, 2014 at 10:41 pm

    I’m always safe during the flu season, I tend to never catch it!



  10. jeanine on December 17, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    Love Ricola! Especially now I’m constantly getting sick and it’s the only thing that helps!



  11. Rachel Ferrucci on December 17, 2014 at 9:04 pm

    Love Ricola and keep them everywhere- purse, car, and all over the house. They are great at this time of year especially for that tickle in your throat



  12. Marina on December 17, 2014 at 9:00 pm

  13. Dede on December 17, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    Oh yeah. Cold season is here for sure. I definitely will be getting some Ricola to help get through it.



  17. Latoicha on December 17, 2014 at 7:15 pm

    My family gets ready for cold and flu season by taking Vitamin C, eating right, and keeping our heads covered! LOL! I know that sounds old school, but I believe a covered head wards off many colds.



  18. Ann Bacciaglia on December 17, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    I am ready for cold and flu season. I just got my flu shot and i have a good supply of medications. I love Ricola drops. They sooth my throat when i feel sick. I have had two colds already this year.



  19. Nina Say on December 17, 2014 at 4:47 pm

    Ricola is one of those brands that brings back so many memories for me. My grandma used to give them to my brother and me in Church when we were young.



  20. Tammi @ My Organized Chaos on December 17, 2014 at 2:10 pm

    One of my twins got over a 3 week cold and she’s got it again! I might be next so I’m stocking up on products like this, drinking lots of water and taking vitamins. I don’t have time to be sick, ever!



  21. Pam on December 17, 2014 at 2:47 pm

    I always keep Ricola drops around in the winter. It seems like I constantly have a sore throat.



  22. Meagan on December 17, 2014 at 1:29 pm

    Oh man, I hate cold/flu season! It’s the worst! We have been trying to be diligent about washing our hands all the time! Hope it pays off!



  23. Liz Mays on December 17, 2014 at 2:22 pm

    Ricola works so well. I always keep a package around the house.



  24. Tammilee Tips on December 17, 2014 at 1:57 pm

  25. Callie on December 17, 2014 at 1:57 pm

    I wish I read this before I got sick!



  26. Kecia on December 17, 2014 at 1:27 pm

    We’ve all had a cold this season. My kids got sinus infections and ear aches to go along with them. I had quite a few Ricola last week when my throat was really scratchy and tickling.



  27. Shop with Me Mama (Kim) on December 17, 2014 at 1:02 pm

    Ricola is the ONLY brand of cough drops my hubby will use! They are great! We try to wash our hands A LOT. And yes, we have already been sick, but not as much as last year, fingers crossed it stays that way!



  28. Catherine S on December 17, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    These are all great tips. I am hoping to avoid getting sick this year. I have been eating healthier and exercising.



  29. Tiffany (A Moms Take) on December 17, 2014 at 9:45 am

    Last year my daughter got the flu. Hoping it doesn’t happen again this year. Those Swiss Herbs are our favorite here.



  30. Betsy Mitchell on December 17, 2014 at 9:18 am

    I can’t help but sing RIIICOOLAAAAA every time I purchase them at the store. They are my go to product for when I’m feeling sick.

  32. Kathleen on December 17, 2014 at 8:01 am

    These are good tips. I need to try some of them obviously, since I have already been sick twice this season.



  33. Jaime on December 17, 2014 at 7:49 am

    I’ve been sick a lot this fall. Thankfully, I’ve been well for a couple of weeks. I keep these drops on hand – they have helped me tremendously!



  34. Robin (Masshole Mommy) on December 17, 2014 at 3:59 am
