Halls Cough Drops Are More Than Just Medicine In Certain Parts Of The World
A couple dealing with illness.
People in Northern regions of the world typically reach for a packet of Halls to soothe a sore throat, but that's not necessarily the case in other parts of the world.
Certain countries in South America and the Philippines view Halls as more of a cooling candy rather than a remedy for a cough.
It's a way to keep your breath fresh and avoid having a dry mouth from living in a hotter, arid climate. It's enjoyed by adults, teens, and even children throughout the day.
Halls are also marketed as candy in these countries, with super-sweet flavors like creamy passionfruit, strawberry, chocolate, and even beer- and lime-flavored Halls.
Menthol's cooling effect is probably nice on a hot day, and fortunately, according to Healthline, you would have to eat hundreds of cough drops before experiencing adverse effects.
