Edit: Now even cheaper! Stacking with 20% off everything. I'm on my smartphone now, so I can't confirm that this is the cheapest it can go, but I've managed to get the 26 pack down to $1.11 and the 32 packs down to $1.43. Anyone play around and get it lower? (same applies to other brands below).
Works like a charm. Haven't had Pine Bros. cough drops in about 100 years, hope they haven't changed the recipe/formula that I remember so well! Thanks, OP!

I just got these in the mail(bought them as a filler from drugstore.com) a few days ago. Just like you I had not had these since I was a kid. Maybe it is my memory but they do not seem as sweet. I got the cherry flavor. I still am happy with my purchase. I read up and it seems like the company went out of business and was brought back recently. At least where I live there are no local stores , mostly sold through online retailers. I guess it gives hope for funny bones and twinkies.

ShopRite had the bag of 32 pc bag for $3.29 -$0.50 Price Plus discount on 12/9/12. I purchased the honey. The flavor was somewhat familiar but different. The softish/gummy texture was exactly how I remembered. Ate the entire bag in 2 days.

I loved these as a kid in the 60's. My favorite was honey and they came in a rectangular cardboard box. Even though I haven't enjoyed one in many years, I can still imagine the taste and texture of these. As a new Shoprunner member (free), this was my first order with free shipping.

I received my order today. Yuck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The taste of the honey flavored drops is dreadful. They smell bad and taste worst. No honey taste AT ALL. They sorta taste and smell like aftershave. I ate these regularly when I was a kid in the 60's and 70's and this is not even close. I'll try the cherry later today after I recover from this shock.
Update: I tried the Cherry flavor and I must admit they are much better than the honey. The texture of these is not the same as the originals either but I will finish the 2 containers of cherry.
