''Totally Addictive, Mouth Watering Candies''
Throat-soothing and palate-pleasing, these candies date back to 1930, but they have many current fans, including President Clinton. Made with glycerin and vitamin C, they satisfy a sweet tooth, moisten a dry mouth, and can even ward off colds.
They contain a high quality glycerin which helps keep the mouth and throat moist, protected, and soothed. Agar-Agar (derived from dulse) lends the pastille their silky consistency while the natural extracts of fruit give Grether's Pastilles their great taste. Before the pastilles are packaged into the classic gold Grethers tins, they must be allowed to ripen for three months.
Grether's Pastilles are recommended for hoarseness, sore throats, croaky voice and dry mouth. People who have to use their voice a lot, e.g. through singing or extensive talking, benefit particularly from the calming, soothing and nourishing effect of Grether's Pastilles.
