    [QUOTE]I can't gargle (seriously, I choke myself).  I hate the way cough drops make my teeth feel.  My doctor's nurse told me that my steroid inhaler and nasal spray could be worsening it (I have post-URI laryngitis) so to stop them for a couple days and see if that helped.  I do not know what ginger peoples are.  Do they taste like soap?  <strong>Ginger tastes like soap</strong>. This is why doctors hate me.

    Yep. 

    <div>I'm pretty bad at this home remedy stuff. I'm usually happy with hot tea or a cough drop.</div>

    [QUOTE]You're so difficult.  Do you have a problem with peppermints? 
    Posted by PetalPockets2012[/QUOTE]

    I am super difficult.  Ask my poor husband.  Bless him.

    I like peppermints.  And lemon drops.  And rootbeer barrels.  I should get some of those.  Good idea.

    Ginger does so taste like soap.  I will look for ginger peoples though .  I'm willing to try anything at this point (except all of the above things I just shot down, of course).  My throat is angry.

    Is it Talenti?! I just had their black raspberry choco chip. Num. I always wash the containers after and reuse them when I made homemade cream of ice.
  • It probably does not have to be brandy.  but rum in tea with lemon and honey does not sound good.  

    I think it just needs to be alcohol in that tea/honey/lemon mixture.  the alcohol kills the germs then the rest soothes.

  • Why yes Meg, that's exactly what it is. I also have their blood orange. And I've had their vanilla bean before. I am going to keep these containers. They're cool looking, and pretty good quality.

    Ahh I knew it. Love that flavor. And the Nilla. Never had the blood orange though, unfortunately our local S&S doesn't carry it or the coconut which would probably be my favorites. I haven't had a flavor. Didn't like though. The containers keep really well, so far. I've used them several times already.

  • Muni - my mom actually makes that pretty often, but with Jack. She calls it a Hot Toddy. 
  • I call them a hot toddy too.  Never fails to make me feel better when sick.

    <div>The blood orange is a little more bitter than I would have liked. I mean, I'll finish it and everything and it's not gross -but I probably won't buy it again.</div>
  • So, can I just do a shot of like...tequila or vodka, and chase it with some tea?

    It was on sale for $3.50 so I had to. Usually it's 5 or more. I've also had chocolate pb, cookie swirl, double chocolate, and the Moroccan mint. Yum yum. Plus if I want to give away ice cream it's not like I'm giving away a nice ice cream saver.
  • I need to start keeping whiskey in the house.

  • J - I'm not sure if that would work as well. I think it's the combination of tea+alcohol+honey+lemon that makes it good. But I could be wrong. You could try it to see.

  • Thanks for the tip about the blood orange. It makes me feel a little better that we don't have it. I wasn't a huge fan of the chobani either, and was no longer sad only Target had that flavor.

    [QUOTE]I really hate posting and the damn thread refreshing back to the first page.  Effers.
    Posted by crfb87[/QUOTE]

    Yes, what is up with that?  It really kills my rapid fire posting.

    MUNI, I will be sure to let you know.  My H was like "wait, you're doing WHAT?  Why?"  My respond?  "Because someone on the internet told me to."

    Goodnight!

  • Yeah, I like actual blood oranges. And I even liked the Chobani because it had the sweetness of the yogurt to balance it out. But the gelato doesn't have that same kind of thing. 


  • How far away is it Chrissy? I'm usually cool wiht making a quick run to the grocery store since it's only a few miles away. Maybe a little more, but still pretty close.

    Chrissy - According to her she's not evil for using mace. Does that mean I'm not evil for macing her?
