Halls Refresh

Mrs. Hunter, do you want a Hall's Refresh?
There were Halls Refresh samples floating about last September, but no computer and no apartment make Homer something something and I got a sample pack last week.
I was lucky enough to have them on hand on a recent Christmas shopping spree, and made my cousin, sister, and her neighbor try them. (Winter Silks, btw, has some great deals and lovely shopping bags with purchase.)

The tantalizing scent of Juicy Strawberry filled the store when in moderate proximity of an open mouth. Did I mention I was with my sister and cousin? Enough said.
Halls Refresh are called "candy drops" and start out tasting like candy with a Mentho-Lyptus cough drop finish. They're cute, covered with a few dark speckles and come in three flavors: Tropical Wave, Juicy Strawberry, and Refreshing Mint.
I didn't see a Refreshing Mint, but all three of "the girls" (sue me Elizabeth Cady Stanton, oh, you can't) liked both the Tropical Wave (my preference) and Juicy Strawberry.
Here's what they look like.

The bottom line: If you want medicated candy drops, nothing beats Smith Brothers for taste, but Halls Refresh smell great, are sugar free, and nice for sharing.


  1. hmmm...and here I was thinking Halls were damned nasty. Those actually look good. And for some reason I could almost smell them :)

    Happy Thanksgiving, Jeanna.

  2. Hey Jodi, not really candy, but they smell great.
    Happy Turkey to you.

  3. Don't know why, but you just feel like you need a hug. (((hugs)))

    no reason. Just wanted to drop by. :)

  4. Happy belated Turkey Day!

  5. btw, for some reason your blog seems to "go" in leaps and bounds when I'm not looking. So it if decides to do that when I'm turned in the other direction, just wanted to say "hi" (hi!)

  6. Could it be my ever expanding fat arse? Drop by either place any time, will try to give you more of a reason to.

  7. You too, my red neck friend.

  8. I wasn't going to continue the Dish, but decided to make it more of a once or more a month thing.
    Top ten lists are fun and I'll post more if I find more interesting Christmas sweets, but then someone has to eat it. There is some outstanding stollen from my fav European bakery...
    So far, just the Sour Patch Kids candy canes. It's all Diet Rite and 100 Calorie Packs these days.

  9. I have to say, I love The Dish and always will. Love your other blog too, but The Ched Curtain won't let me leave comments still. Booooo!

  10. Oh it should, C., and thanks for playing. I have to approve the comments because of hundreds of this type of thing a day:

    "Article very interesting, I will necessarily add it in the selected works and I will visit this site."

    I was going to see who else gets a lot of daily spams and see if they wanted to do a post on it, but I don't think anyone gets smacked around like I do.

    The Web site comments work (was also a problem), but now people are anonymous and I have to guess who it is. (Usually no one.)

    Gonna check the comment moderation now, snow angel.

  11. Hey C., all is well in Ched comment land. You're not selling Levitra online are you?
