Rated 5 out of 5 by from i wasn't exactly sure how to use this at first, I've used other Zicam products but the crystals were new to me. At first I thought you dissolve in a glass of water, I wasn't looking forward to drinking all that, but when I read you pour on tongue and let dissolve I was pretty happy. Packets are fairly small, I poured the packet on my tongue waited for it to dissolve. The taste completely surprised me, this stuff tastes pretty darn good! No after taste at all. The packets are small so they are perfect to travel with, or throw in you handbag. I would recommend these if you feel a cold coming on, can't hurt to try it if it means a shorter cold!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First sign of a cold these did work well. My first impression of the product is that it was packaged nicely so no complaints on that. The single packets are perfect for on the go use! I like how the product can also be used without water. That's a big plus because it makes it more convenient. It sort of melts in your mouth and it taste great. I like the idea of the product itself too. It helps shorten the common cold and I'm a person who dreads a long cold! As a mom I need to be on the go and have no time for a long, lingering cold. Great flavor, great concept, and great delivery in my personal opinion. And I'd recommend this product too a friend defiantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family just returned from vacation, bringing back with us beginning symptoms of the cold: stuffy nose, sore throat, weak cough. We were excited to give this product a try! My three teenage daughters, my husband, and myself were all pleased with the taste. It is much more pleasing then the original Zicam. We've have all taken a couple packets a day, and now after day two we are feeling better. Symptoms did not worsen, and no trips to the doctor were needed! We will continue taking it for a few more days just to be safe!I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review....but will definitely purchase this product in the future!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Last week I woke up with a scratchy throat and felt a little bit congested, so I tried out the Zicam Cold Remedy Ultra Berry Lemonade Crystals for the first time. It was easy to take and tasted pleasant, I took it as directed for the duration of my cold, which lasted about a week. I can't say for sure how effective it was though as you never know how long a cold would last untreated. When I get a cold, it usually lasts for about a week, so I didn't really see a difference. I've always been skeptical of homeopathic medications, so I wasn't sure how well Zicam would work. All I can say is that my cold was not worse than any other that I've had in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I had no idea Zicam would make me feel so much better! I didn't feel real well and I had been taking some other medicine for my cold and I still continued to feel the same. I started taking Zicam in addition to what I was taking and I actually started to feel better. I didn't think that I would like the taste either and I actually do. The flavor reminds me of the Smarties candy but just crushed up instead. Zicam is something that you can just put a few in your car, your desk drawer at work or your purse when you start feeling bad and start feeling better sooner. I would fully recommend Zicam to anyone! I am so glad that I got a chance to try this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My experience with Zicam Cold Remedy Ultra Berry Lemonade Crystals was positive. I really appreciated that they are so portable, and convenient, even on the go. I keep some on me, in my purse, so at the 1st sign of a cold I can take it wherever I am, no matter what else I'm doing, to give me the comfort and hope of knowing it can shorten my cold and I take it the duration of my cold to ensure that, as directed. Another big plus, in my opinion, and I bet I could safely bet, what would be most people's opinions upon trying it, is it is taken without the need for water or pills. I simply pour the crystals in my mouth and they even taste good while melting to do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So this came in at exactly the right time....just as a cold is coming on! I was a little skeptical about using the crystals myself because I hate the sensation of powdery "stuff" but was willing to do anything to shorten the misery of this cold! (Plus, Zicam has such a great reputation!) The flavor was awesome--just the right amount if tart and sweet to make it seem like a treat. The crystals dissolved quickly and left no weird residue in my mouth or throat. I can't say yet how well this works to shorten a cold, as I just started yesterday evening, but because this is from the same geniuses who brought us the original Zicam, I have absolute faith it will do its job!
