Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful product I am definately a fan of these Zicam medicated fruit drops. I was starting to feel under the weather and could feel a cold coming on so I tried Zicam cold remedy. I don't like to take a bunch of medicine so I really liked that these were homeopathic. They have a good citrus flavor without the aftertaste of medicine. My cold never developed into something worse and I am pretty sure that taking Zicam helped. I coupled it with getting rest, drinking lots of water and staying warm. I have heard that zinc is good for fighting colds, now I believe it. Will definitely keep these in hand for times when I feel a cold coming on. They are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't afford to be sick! About a week ago I woke up and just did not feel right, we all know when the cold hits us. I remembered a friend telling me about the Zicam Ultimate Orange Medicated Fruit Drops. I immediateley went and got some. They taste great, just like the orange chews we used to get when we were kids. I work long 12 hour days and can't afford to be down and out, so I took these things every 3 hours and it was like the cold never got out of the "early stages". Before the end of the week it was like I was back to normal. I now have 2 bottles in my medicine cabinet just in case. It may not be a cure for the cold but it sure is the next best thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective and taste great I was very surprised to find that these drops actually did make a difference as I began coming down with a cold. I took the drops as directed on the label and my symptoms at the time did diminish within several days. The orange taste is nice and flavorful with no bitter aftertaste. I like that the drops have a gummy like texture which make them easy to chew as well. Overall I am glad to see something on the shelves such as this to help with making colds go away a little faster when taken at the onset.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awkward to take You take one chewy and are supposed to chew it slowly and not swallow until it’s fully dissolved in your mouth. This was a little hard to do in my opinion. Citrus flavored gummies make my mouth already water. I just wanted to swallow it right away. I think I prefer hard lozenges for these zinc type products if you’re supposed to let them coat your throat. Besides how you have to take them, the flavor was good and a little mentholated to help when you’re not feeling great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They taste great I started using the Zicam ultimate orange medicated fruit drops the onset of a cold. Normally I let it ride and get over it in about a week and a half. Well since starting those gummies, I’ve noticed that my general cold time is as long as it is, I started feeling better in less than a week. I feel as if it cut down about 4 or 5 days. I still have lingering symptoms but for the most part it kicked most of what I was feeling. Pretty great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Definitely shortens a cold I started taking these as soon as I woke up with a sore throat. It does not stop you from getting sick but it did lessen how long it lasted and even helped with some of the symptoms. Within 3 days I was already feeling alot better. The only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars was the flavor. I didn't really like the taste, it's a mellow orange taste with a kind of minty medicine after taste when you chew it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes good These taste like real oranges. The drops are refreshing. And don't leave an aftertaste. They have a pleasant taste. There is allot of sugar on the outside which kind of defeats the whole purpose of helping you keep it called way. Or if you watching your sugar intake this is just another way that you add sugar to your body. But they are really good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes Great and works ! I loved the orange taste of these drops, no medicinal taste at all and they have a nice chewy texture. I have used Zicam products for years. At the first sign on an oncoming cold if you start using the product it does reduce the length of time and severity of a cold. I always like using homeopathic products whenever possible and Zicam does what it says.
