I'm really confused are lifesavers candy or not?

I had lifesavers a couple of time. Once as candy, but the other times mom told me to use them when I'm having my clearing-the-throat kind of coughs. My mom uses the big bags of life savers for that purpose. I'm told by others that they are candy, but my mom uses them as a kind of cough drop.

Hard candy and cough drops increase the production rates of the salivary glands, which is why they're often used to cure sore or dry throats. Life Savers are a multipurpose candy. Smile

I had never thought to use Lifesavers (or any hard candy) as a form to ease a sore throat! In fact, I don't think I've ever heard of anyone doing that. The things you learn... Laughing I'll keep this in mind next time I have a sore throat since I absolutely hate the taste of cough drops...maybe a butter rum hard candy will be due for the next time I have a sore throat!

My Grandma always had lifesavers and that old fashioned Christmas candy in a little bag for just that purpose Wink

The candy used to taste like her face powder smelled from her keeping it in her pruse lol but it did work! Razz
