In 1930 Pine Brothers was sold to the Life Savers Company and continued to flourish. Known for its 'soft drop consistency,' Pine Brothers lozenges became a favorite of adults and children alike. The product, which attracted healthiest sales in the eastern and northern states, due to its icy winters, reached its peak popularity in the 1970's. The company was sold by Life Savers, and then, having been re-sold and acquired a number of times, found itself essentially rudderless and under appreciated; this despite a legion of loyal consumers. Cost cutting changes were made to the original recipes, packaging became stale and marketing non-existent; Pine Brothers began to be made overseas. Sales declined. Recently, Pine Brothers was acquired by the creator and former owner of Airborne, Victoria Knight-McDowell, for her new company 3 Sisters Home Products™. Much time and effort has been spent locating the original Pine Brothers recipes, redesigning the packaging, and creating an exciting yet classic new look. Pine Brothers is once again being made in America, and was launched nationally in fall 2011. And indeed, old Mr. Pine has succeeded yet again in "making people happy." God bless him!
Now that you know the back story behind Pine Bros you should also know more about their actual products. No one likes a sore throat but thousands of people suffer with because they do not know how to help it. Trying product after product only to be left with less money and yet still a sore throat. Not only do you want to calm that throat but a taste way to do so can be hard to come by. In most cases if it tastes like candy it's not going to help you but Pine Bros begs to differ. You see I grew up with stubborn taste buds as many people do so I want even my medicine to taste good. Crazy impossible? Not only am I amazed by the outstanding flavor but am greatly impressed. My daughter, the most pickiest little girl loves them. That makes their drops #1 in my book.
