Giveaway: ZarBee's Cough Syrup CLOSED



Remember my review of Zarbee's Cough Syrup a few months ago? No? Well, I encourage you to go take a gander at it but if you're in a hurry, allow me to refresh your memory.

Zarbee's was invented by Dr. Zak Zarbock, a pediatrician who had become frustrated by his inability to help young patients suffering from coughs. You see, traditional cough syrups like Triaminic and Children's Robitussin are restricted to children 4 and over. But what about the little guys? Don't they need comfort too? So, he created a safe yet effective, all-natural cough syrup that provides relief from throat irritation while also boosting the immune system. Using a proprietary blend of dark honeys for their antioxidant power combined with vitamin C and zinc gluconate, Zarbee's is safe for children 12 months and older. It is available in two flavors: lemon and cherry.

We received two samples from Zarbee's to test out. So far, we've only used the lemon sample during a time when Nate's runny nose was causing some post-nasal drip and a heartbreaking cough. I found the scent of the syrup to be a little strong and off-putting but it did taste better than other medicines. It reminded me of a honey tea with a hint of clove. Maybe the cherry flavor would be a bit milder. It wasn't thick and goopy like some syrups. Instead, it was thin and easy to pour and measure. I struggled to get Nate to accept the first taste - perhaps because of the smell - but after that, he gladly opened up for more. Roughly 15 minutes later, his cough had mysteriously disappeared. So, I'd say it passed the test for us!

I love that the ingredients are natural and that he won't have to suffer with annoying coughs until he's a preschooler. I also like that it was developed by a pediatrician so I'm confident that he has my childs' health and best interest at heart. And since each dose provides his total daily serving of vitamin C, I know I'm doing all I can to protect him during cold and flu season.

BUY IT: You can find Zarbee's in select grocery and drugstores including Acme, Albertson's, Shaw's, and Supervalu, as well as online (ARV $9.99/4 oz. bottle). If ZarBee's is not available near you, you can request it by emailing requestlocation@zarbees.com.

I like that Zarbee's uses natural ingredients. Honey is great for sore throats and coughs. The added vitamins are an added bonus.

Zarabee's would be great for our 2 year old grandson who has allergies. Poor little guy has a hard time with all the pollen in the air. Around here it's all year long!.

I normally give a spoonful of honey to my daughter when she has a cough. I like that this syrup is high in antioxidants.
