This Cold & Flu Season Turn To Smith Bros. For Your Wellness Regimen - Review

I received a package of Smith Bros. newest cough, cold, and wellness products for this review.  No other form of compensation was received.  All opinions are my own.


Are you like me, and sorta dread the idea of a cold or flu taking its turns with all of your family?  With six children, we, being a family of eight, a cold or flu would make its tracks through every single one of us.  Luckily, either Dad or I would be the last ones to catch the rotten little bug.

When we are sick, we all usually reach for some sort of medicine.  What we have been using, we would rather not take due to the fact that it is based in high fructose corn syrup, but it's what the kids would only take due to the fact that it tasted best.  Now, thanks to Smith Bros., there is a new cold/flu and wellness medicines that taste better than that syrupy HFCS stuff.  


Smith Brothers, Co. is an iconic brand that most people associate with cough drops.  Now they are branching out to include wellness products.  This is a product line that addresses three phases of cold and flu with consumer preferred forms and ingredients.  With all of Smith Bros. products you will find the following:
  • All Smith Brothers products represent the highest standard of safety.
  • Smith Brothers’ products are effective in delivering upon their promise.
  • Smith Brothers products are portable with stick packs, sachets and tubes that offer convenience when consumers want to take the products.
  • Importantly, the products’ formats and flavors are enjoyable.

Worried that a cold or flu is imminent?  Keep your immune system supported with the New Smith Bros. Immune Support.  These products are specifically formulated with Vitamins C, B6, B12 and Zinc to support the body’s natural immune response and prepare the body to fight cold symptoms.   I have already taken this product several times as it will help fight occasional fatigue and it does boosts my energy levels.


The Immune Support comes in Orange Zest flavored Effervescent Tablets and Citrus Blast Stick Packs.  Just add to 6-8 ounces of water, and allow to full dissolve.  Great flavor!


For relief from colds and flus, nothing feels better when you’re sick than drinking hot liquids.  Smith Brothers has created three soothing hot tea formulations to focus on relieving the most common cold and flu symptoms.  I have yet to try these, but I am willing to bet that these will taste just as good as the other Smith Bros that I received.

The Smith Bros. Day Time Relief for Colds and Flu will not put you to sleep.  This non-drowsy formula will relieve nasal congestion, cough, body aches and pain while it will also reduce a fever.   The package contains eight mixed berry-flavored packets with the key ingredients of: Acetaminophen 650 mg; Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide 20mg, and Phenylephrine HCl 10mg.


The Smith Bros Multi-Symptom Relief will alleviates nasal congestion, cough, body aches and pain, reduces a fever, and will help with sinus pressure.  Contains eight honey-lemon flavored packets with the key ingredients of: Acetaminophen 650 mg; Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide 20mg, and Phenylephrine HCl 10mg.

To help you sleep at night, the Smith Bros. will help relieve nasal congestion, cough, body aches and pain, sinus pressure and congestion.   This box also contains eight honey chamomile packets that contain: Acetaminophen 650 mg; Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide 20mg, Phenylephrine HCl 10mg, and Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide 20mg.

These three soothing hot tea formulations that will help relieve the most common cold and flu symptoms are easy to prepare.  Just dissolve one packet in a mug of 8 oz of hot water, and sip it while it's hot.


Smith Bros. even cares for your needs after you get over your cold or flu with their Restore Wellness products.  These supplements aid in recovery and (in the process) fights fatigue and increases your alertness after an illness by replenishing electrolytes and B-complex vitamins.  Fortified with vitamins B6, B12, Guarana, and Electrolytes, this wellness supplement will get you back on your feet by giving the energy and nutrients you need to start back to work once more.  These come in two different types: Mixed Berry Effervescent Tablets (20) and Orange Zest sticks (20) that you just mix with water.


Smith Bros. Co. has been looking out for our wellness needs since 1847 with their first iconic "cough candy."  To keep up with the latest news on health and wellness products, be sure to follow Smith Bros on Facebook and Twitter.

Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies Computer Game - Weave Your Way Through the Maze of Deceit - Review & Giveaway - ends 11/7 WW



We love our computer games.  Ever since we got our first computer, playing games on them have always been a pleasant past time.  One of our favorite types to play is a mystery game.  One of our favorite computer game sleuths is Nancy Drew.

The Nancy Drew computer game series from Her Interactive are rewarding and really brings out your cognitive abilities of deduction.  In every Nancy Drew game, one can either play at Amateur level (my usual level) or Master Sleuth level.  If you make a mistake, you can erase those "faux pas" without having to start all over again.  (Like if you ever get Nancy killed by accident like I have done many times.)

Since we love mystery games, it was really our pleasure to review the latest of our favorite sleuth's game of Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies.


Thread Your Way Through a Maze of Deceit in this Epic Greek Drama!

A museum curator hires you to assist with the most anticipated event of the year, but artifacts from the exhibit are mysteriously disappearing. Are these mishaps connected to the amphitheater’s upcoming performance? Or is an unseen villain pulling strings behind the scenes? Uncover the truth and recover the missing artifacts from the Labyrinth of Lies!


Organize Greek Displays and Exhibits! 
Fill in for the museum curator and assemble exhibits before the grand opening
--You always learn something interesting when you are helping Nancy out with these everyday tasks she needs to get done


Use Stagecraft Expertise to Survive Backstage! 
Sneak behind the curtains to explore the treacherous underworld stage sets
--Be careful, there are always ways that may get Nancy in a bad situation!


Experience the World of Ancient Greece! 
Solve challenging puzzles based on actual Greek myths and artwork
--The puzzles sometimes can be a bit difficult, but you always feel a great accomplishment when they are finished.


The Hardy Boys are On the Line! 
Use your in-game mobile phone to hear potentially lifesaving tips from Frank and Joe
--I always like to call up Frank and Joe for help, and sometimes their help is truly invaluable!

Select Difficulty Levels! 
Play at Amateur or Master Sleuth level and erase any mistakes without starting over

Since we just got this game last week, I am still about halfway through Labyrinth of Lies.  I am not one to rush a good mystery game.  I like to savor them.  I can tell you this: the graphics are beautiful, and the music is nice to listen to as you are playing.  The characters have great backgrounds and are quite interesting.  The game does start out seemingly easy, but as it is progressing, it is getting a little more difficult and challenging - just the way I like it!



Would you Dare to Play Nancy's latest Greek mystery and weave your way through the maze of lies? This game is rated E10+ for everyone with just some mild violence.   Purchase Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies directly at Her Interactive or at a store near you.  If you do purchase at Her Interactive, a downloadable strategy guide is included.
