Cough drops are DANGEROUS!
Anyway, hubby got me some Honey Halls Mentho-lyptus for my throat, and the next thing I knew, I was on my fourth bag. They started out as being medicine but soon turned into vapory candy.
Well, obviously when you're sick you're pretty sedentary (though the same can be said for being a full-time student... gotta work on that), and the other day I get on the scale and I was up 2.5 pounds! WTF??
So I check the Halls bag and get this -- 15 freakin' calories per drop! And I swear, each day I had ingested over 450 calories in cough drops alone! HOLY COW!
Okay, so time to step BACK from the cough drops.
Hubby's a real gem, though... He went to Costco yesterday and got me a gargantuan pack of the li'l buggers, but sugar free. So now they're only 5 calories each. o_O
