Halls Refresh & Fuzzy Bath Robe/Slippers Giveaway!

So I was sent in the mail and asked to review Halls Refresh Drops courtesy of Mike Pampalone. (thanks, Mike!) Halls are not all natural and are sweetened with artificial sweetners, but I decided to do the review anyway.                                                                                                                                                    

Halls typically makes Cough Drops- but the new Refresh drops are not for a cough, but to moisten and refresh your mouth. They are sugar-free and diabetic friendly, and come in 3 flavors Juicy Strawberry, Tropical Wave, and Refreshing Mint. I was sent the Juicy Strawberry and Tropical Wave flavors to try.                                                                                                                          

Each of the little samples came with 2 drops per package. The drops were oval in shape and you can actually see little “moisture beads” in the drop. Cool!  Both of them had a “minty” after taste that definietly will “wetten your whistle” and keep your mouth cool. They in fact, were, smooth tasting and refreshing! Especially good to keep my attention focused when my mind starts to wander (can we say boring College Calculus classes? I can. YUCK) I prefered the Tropical Wave over Juicy Strawberry. The Tropical Wave flavor was sweeter than the Juicy Strawberry, and more candy like than cough drop. It had a mix of an orangey/citrus flavor. The Juicy Strawberry had a mellow strawberry flavor, and wasn’t too sweet as I had anticipated from a candy. Overall, these aren’t bad. My mom really enjoyed them and kept asking for more after I let her try one (git your own!! 😛 )
