  1. I got some berry flavored Airborne Chewables in my stocking this year and they are SOUR! I can handle one at a time, but since the serving size is 4 tablets, I’ve decided to stick with the dissolving kind. 🙂

    1. we bought the orange flavored ones, Richard woke up with a sore throat so he took them to work today, so I guess he will be the guinea pig! Tee Hee!
      I wondered about the serving size, because I read that it is 4 at a time, but the regular ones doesn’t it say to take them like every 4 hours or something? I don’t know anymore, this is making me want to do research b/c there was some controversy about airborne a while back that I don’t remember the details. I do however love airborne because I am pretty sure it is the only way I survived my first year (or 2!) of teaching! 🙂

      1. Hi there – We have switched to Emergen-C – Better price point, we all love the taste, don’t know about getting the little ones to drink it – but it seems to keep the crud at bay.

      2. Interesting! I have wondered about that, I will have to give it a try next time. Maybe it will be on the Grocery Game soon? I don’t think I have ever seen it, but this time of year they tend to put lots of cold products/vitamins on sale…
        Thanks for reading and commenting. 🙂
