Winter is nearly here! Are you ready? You will be with organic, worry-free, throat-soothing lollipops for kids. Simple #ad #LolleezOrganicThroatSoothingPops

It happened today, in fact!

Scarlet, my normally always-healthy child, woke up with sniffles and a scratchy throat. She said, “Oh no, not this again!” Which is honestly what I think every fall. We can go up to seven months with nary a sniffle, and then the new school year hits. It does get better, at least for us, but Des just started kindergarten so he’s already been sick three times. Scarlet’s in third grade so it happens less often, but that just means it’s worse when it happens. And it takes away from her busy schedule! Not to mention, being sick can feel so awful to a kid (and adult) and you just want to make it better for them.

That’s where Lolleez™ come in!

It’s no surprise that they were created by a mom for parents. The thing is, I was feeling a little scratchy myself the other day and I helped myself to a strawberry flavored one. It was SO good and soothing. So you’re probably wondering what Lolleez™ are. They are organic, worry-free, throat-soothing lollipops for kids – that offer a simple solution to a simple problem. They’re made from USDA Certified Organic ingredients, as well as ingredients you can pronounce and understand. They contain things like natural fruit pectin and organic honey. The yummy, flat lollipops are also Non-GMO, dairy free, nut free, and available in three flavors – Watermelon, Strawberry, and Orange Mango. They are kid and parent approved here.

For a little background, Melissa Evans – a mom of four and a health coach – couldn’t find anything to “eez” her kids’ throats or her mind when they were sick. That’s how Lolleez™ were born! Last year, Melissa’s daughter came down with a sore throat and there was nothing Melissa could find that made her feel comfortable. She wanted something to put a smile back on her daughter’s face. Cough drops and lozenges posted a choking risk, and for the most part contained chemicals.

Enter in this worry-free, healthier, and more fun alternative.

Melissa Evans, Lolleez™ Founder, said : “Few ailments cause overall unhappiness to both kids and parents like a sore throat. Whether it’s allergies, a cough or a cold, a sore throat is painful. Every time you swallow, it’s there and it hurts.” “There is nothing worse than watching your child suffer, so I’m really excited to be able to offer an organic and worry-free throat remedy that can help soothe both physical (child) and emotional (parent) pain, with the launch of Lolleez™.

As I mentioned, they come in three delicious and fun flavors. Lolleez™ are flat and on a stick, versus a round ball potential choking hazard. They surveyed hundreds of kids, and determined that traditional flavors like cherry and grape have a negative association tied to medicines. So Watermelon, Strawberry and Orange Mango it is! They come in packs of 15 pops.

Suggested retail price is $6.99.

A Sore Throat Solution This Cold and Flu Season — 22 Comments

  1. My son would like the strawberry! We take our vitamins and wash our hands frequently. I also disinfect and clean a lot and make sure we take our shoes off at the door.

  2. Watermelon is sure to be a hit here at our house! Can I keep these all for me? I’ll share the ones with mango since I am allergic. 🙂 I’m so generous. Haha.

    Last year I bought this C.o. Bigelow Cold & Flu Soak, and put it on the shelf by the bathtub. Since then we haven’t been sick a day. I’m guessing this odd black liquid has scared the germs away. I’ll let you know how it works if we ever actually use it.

    If I feel cruddy I tend to take Emergen-C.

  3. My tip is *wash.your.hands*. Literally everything we touch comes into contact with something that someone else has inevitably touched. Germs are everywhere

    Wash your hands.

    Thank you for the chance !!!

  4. Both my girls were finally under the weather for the first time last week for this current cold and flu season. So, definitely going to have to look into these for them as I have feeling it is going to be a long season of this ahead now us still!

  5. Our favorite flavor is Strawberry ! I help prevent nasty germs with my kids by washing their hands constantly, their sippy cups, snack cups etc! I also try to get a lot of antioxidants down them like blueberries, acai, vitamin C, etc!

  6. Watermelon sounds great. I like to tell myself that I’m building their immunity by not thinking too much about it. But when the sniffles come we crank the cool mist humidifier at night.

  7. My tip is to make sure to make sure to wash your hands often,especially before eating and take vitamin c gummies in addition to daily multi vitamins for an extra boost. Our favorite would be watermelon. I follow on Instagram. 🙂

  8. My tip is to take Zinc lozenges at the first sign of a cold. It really cuts down symptoms and makes me feel better. Also wash your hands a lot, get a flu shot and eat a healthy diet. We would love the Orange Mango flavor and I follow on instagram at jewel5888

  9. My tip is to wash hands often! There are so many germs around during this time of year. I think our favorite flavor would be strawberry, and I follow them on instagram.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I like to keep homemade soup in the freezer, as well have have canned soup in the pantry, for times when we’re not well. I also stock up on apple juice.
