From the Halls of Montezuma

I was getting lunch today, and I saw these cough drops:


Piña colada flavor? (Or, as the packaging has it, "sabor piña colada".) Clearly I needed to buy that for science. Since I actually kind of like artificial coconut flavor, at worst I was buying a pack of candy -- but I was very curious to see if they had attempted to integrate piña colada flavor with the typical Halls menthol flavor, since those are not two tastes that make an immediately obvious pairing.

The verdict? They're actually...pretty good! There's just enough menthol to make you feel like you're having, you know, a cough drop, and somehow it doesn't clash with the pineapple and coconut flavors. Now I just have to wait for my next sore throat.

I first had the SABOR PINA (forgive my tilde-less ness) when we were in Costa Rica. I ate half a package in a three hour car ride.
