Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shortened my cold My daughter and I have both used these lozenges and the effects were quite apparent. We both tend to have a hard time getting over a cold, especially coughing which tends to hang around for a while. This time, as soon as we started noticing a cold coming on we both began using the Zicam lozenges and the cold was gone in record time with no lingering cough. My daughter was a fan of the flavor, while I was on the fence about it. The flavor doesn't matter much since it actually does a good job at shortening colds, but I just can't give it a 5. Even though I'm not a huge fan of the taste, I will continue to use these lozenges whenever I sense a cold coming on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tasted like Wild Cherry Until….. These lozenges tasted like wild cherry until I sucked it a little longer, and then it tasted straight up like medicine. It was not a pleasant taste, and after, I was finished with it, the taste sort of just lingered in my mouth. That was the bad part of these lozenges, the good part was that they helped with this cough that I have had for the last month. I had tried so many other things, and this helped in so many ways. I can get over the taste because it worked. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just in time I was able to sample the wild cherry lozenges from Zicam and none the less I the nick of time. I got these within a day of starting to feel a cold coming on. You know the kind where it starts off with a little sore throat and by the next day your under the covers crying like a baby because you can't handle it. Yup there I was dreading the next day. I figured why not give the lozengers a try. I took two of the very flavorable lozengers and it seemed to have calmed the cold symptoms rather quickly. And best part is they didn't leave a nasty film in my throat so I was able to enjoy so tea. It works pretty quickly to subside any major cold symptoms. I would give it two thumbs up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tastes great & no more cold! I was a little apprehensive about how well this would work, but last week when I came down with a cold and started feeling the symptoms, I decided to give it a try. I followed the directions and was surprised that by the third day after feeling symptoms I only had a mild cold and it was gone within 3 days. The taste of the product is decent and I didn't mind at all though it does have a medicinal flavor with cherry. They melted easy in my mouth which made them easy to take. It's hard to really know for sure that it was the product that made my cold less severe but it really did seem to work. I will keep these on hand during cold season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zicam Wild Cherry Lozenges Are Wonderful I received a sample box of 25 Zicam cold remedy wild cherry flavor lozenges in exchange for my honest review. I can't honestly say for certain that they shortened the length of my cold, but I can tell you that they soothed my sore throat and I coughed far less than usual. I took my first cough lozenge just as I was feeling that familiar "tickle" in the back of my throat, which usually signals the beginning of days and days of suffering. I found myself actually falling asleep easily, which has been my biggest problem at the start of a cold - I think Zicam Wild Cherry Lozenges really helped me by soothing my throat and making it easier for me to breathe. Thank you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Ok. So I tried these a few times and I feel like their taste is a little too mild for me. I like to have some sort of cherry taste in them. I think though that whatever else, any other ingredients that it contains, is very strong because it ends up drying my mouth. It kind of makes it numb. So in that way, it works very effectively. It works very quickly too, as soon as you put it into your mouth, you can feel it while you inhale. I just wish that it tasted a little more sweeter than what it is right now. I like the packaging. If they could change the taste of the product, then I would recommend them to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less Bold Cold!!! I have been hearing a lot of things about Zinc lately. Seems to be becoming as popular as kale. I know there is no cure for the common cold. Finding something that can shorten it and ease the symptoms, would be a great find. I have tried everything under the sun, some helped. I recently tried Zicam Wild Cherry Lozenges for my scratchy throat. The cherry flavor is intense but that's o.k.. There wasn't a strong medicine taste, like some have. My scratchy throat subsided, my breathing is clearer, so far no coughing. I'm going to continue with this. Started trying with the first sign of a cold...no cold yet!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My GO TO when a cold lingers I have always sworn by Zicam melts for anytime I get any sign of a cold such as a sore throat or congestion. I had not tried these Cherry flavored Lozenges until now and I am so glad I did. They really showed up at the perfect time, I was just coming down with a sore throat and used one of these immediately. The feel of my throat started getting better right away and my cold never progressed into anything worse. I can't help but feel like these work just as well as the melts I used to use. I love Zicam and always will. Everyone should keep some in your medicine cabinets at all time so you can use them at the first sign of any Cold symptom. Take my word for it, they are fabulous.
