Soothie Suckers review & #giveaway



Prevention is the best medicine, right?  That's probably why the sale of supplements is growing at twice the rate of over the counter products.  Today I want to tell you about Soothie Suckers, another weapon to add to your arsenal for fighting winter colds.

Soothie Suckers are an all natural herbal pop available in 2 formulas.  One is designed for Nasal Support, and comes in Grape flavor.  The other is designed for Immune Support and comes in Orange flavor.  Soothie Suckers were born out of a mom's desire to make wellness support herbs more palatable to her young daughter.


Eli was initially a little leery of trying one, since it's "healthy" and not florescent blue like the ice pops he's used to.  He said it looked like frozen orange chicken sauce packets (you can tell what's in our freezer regularly).  The flavor was not bad.  I had a nibble from his pop, and I think these would be a comfort to a feverish child.


While Soothie Suckers contain herbs, such as echinacea, astragalus, thyme, and others, there is NO alcohol used in the extraction of their herbs, which are harvested at their peak, to bring you the best health benefits.  They are sweetened with organic agave syrup and monk fruit.


These single dose sized 1 oz. pouches are great for travel or taking on the go.  They can be frozen for a refreshing ice pop, or you can drink them as a liquid.  You can also add them to tea for an herbal sweetener.  They sell for only $9.99/box of 8 pops.

I have a coupon for you, when ordering from their website:  HEALTHYFUN (exp. 12/31/14) will get you $2 off your purchase.

  1. I guess if he's smiling, it can't taste that bad. I always think of herbal supplements as tasting terrible, but these look good.

  2. Preventative care - wash your hands. A LOT. And we ALWAYS use the hand sanitzer at the door on our way into and out of the hospital for all the kids' appointments. No hitch-hiking germs!

    1. Yes! I was asked if I was a nurse when I went in for adoption fingerprints because I'd "washed away" my fingerprints.

    1. In lozenge form? Do you have a favorite brand? I like Halls Vitamin C drops (watermelon flavor) but I haven't found a zinc I like yet.

  5. My favorite preventive is to quadruple vitamin D intake for a week after being exposed to someone that's sick. It never fails.
    As a nurse, I have to say stay home when you're sick and don't ask for antibiotics for a virus. Superbugs are real.

  15. My favorite cold tip is to drink hot tea with lemon and honey. It really helps sooth the throat and unplug the ears. And a good cup of tea relaxes me.
