Yippee Cayenne vs Cough Drops

Yippee Cayenne Sore Throat LozengesYippee Cayenne Sore Throat Lozenges are not a cough drop. We firmly believe that our lozenges are the best sore throat treatment on the market, but they cannot be used to soothe a cough.

That does not mean, however, they can’t be compared to many of the leading cough drops — such as Halls, Vicks, Ricola, etc. — which can also be used to soothe sore throats.

We always want our consumers to be able to make informed decisions, so we’ve created a comparison for you to see the difference between Yippee Cayenne Sore Throat Lozenges and other throat lozenges.

Active Ingredients

Yippee Cayenne: The key to our pride and joy is the healing properties of cayenne pepper. This pepper’s high levels of capsaicin produces an endorphin rush that helps soothe pain. We use this pain reliever to treat sore throat, but cayenne pepper has many more uses. For more information on what cayenne can do, read our blog post.

Common Cough Drops: Many popular cough drops use benzocaine, menthol, peppermint oil, spearmint, or eucalyptus oil as their active ingredient, some of which can be extracted from plants or created synthetically. Non-menthol throat lozenges typically use zinc gluconate glycine, pectin, and dextromethorphan. Cough drops also typically include expectorants to help expel mucus.

Dyes

Yippee Cayenne: Our throat lozenges are a pretty orange that comes naturally from the ingredients we use. We add no dyes to our products.

Common Cough Drops: Many common cough drops use dyes to increase the visual appeal of their products. The dyes allowed for use in cough drops are red dye #40, yellow dye #5, yellow dye #6, blue dye #1, and caramel coloring.

Flavors

Yippee Cayenne: Our lozenges are naturally flavored with lemon oil, honey, cayenne pepper, and natural flavors. We spent hours creating the perfect balance of flavor, sweetness, and spiciness to give our customers a lozenge that tastes as good as the relief it brings. Our customers have told us that our lozenges taste like candy — and many say they eat them like candy, too!

Common Cough Drops: Many people are familiar with the common flavors of cough drops — cherry, watermelon, peppermint, orange, raspberry, etc. These flavors can be both natural and artificial. Artificial flavors are often derived from methyl anthranilate, ethyl caporate, and citric, lactic, tartaric, and malic acids.

How Many Can You Eat?

Yippee Cayenne: As many as you can handle. Eating too many may give you a stomach ache, but you won’t have to worry about any side effects from our ingredients.

Common Cough Drops: Though you would probably get a stomach ache before you experienced the bad effects of too much menthol, there is a potential for negative effects on your heart if you consume too much.
