RE: Baskin Robbins Candy
To Carolina Mom:
Are you now, or have you ever been employed by Bestsweet, Inc. of Mooresville, NC or Beacon Sweets of Durban, South Africa, or worked for the advertising agencies of these firms?
I have actually been using Baskin Robbins hard candies for medicinal purposes since 2003. Tree and Golden Rod pollen cause my throat to get irritated. I require too many lozenges to permit the use of cough drops, which eventually make my throat worse. I use the Creamy Vanilla and Mint Chocolate Chip flavors. They are indeed available at dollar stores like Jack's 99 cent store in Manhattan. The ingredient list for the 4.8 ounce 99 cent bag of Creamy Vanilla is: Sweetened Condensed Whole Milk (Whole Milk, Sugar), Corn Syrup, Sugar, Butter, Honey, salt, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Soy Lecithin, (Emulsifier), Soybean Oil (Processing Aid). Not bad for a budget brand. Unfortunately, I am already in such discomfort when I use them I never bother to notice how good their flavors are. They sure relieve scratchy throat, however.
Bestsweet also private label brands cough drops and OTC drug products.
