Allergy season is in full swing and cold season is still lingering (to our dismay) which means a double whammy of sore throats, coughs, and postnasal itchiness. Black currants have been used for centuries to alleviate those irritations, so it's only natural they would be turned into a delicious lozenge. Grether's Blackcurrant Pastilles ($12) taste amazing and help with those common seasonal complaints. Plus, they come in a cute tin. Not that the tin makes us feel better, but at least it makes us feel more fancy while we sound like frogs.
