The Mary Poppins of Today: FLAVORx

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

With flu and cold season in full swing, many of us are making numerous trips to the pharmacy to pick up prescriptions to make us, or our kids, feel well.

While at my local pharmacy, I noticed a sign for a product called FLAVORx, a product marketed towards kids that essentially are flavorings that pharmacists add to liquid medications in order to combat that medicinal bad flavor that makes even kids with taste-buds of steel squirm.

In my mind, I broke into tune internally humming one of my favorite musicals hits.  Is FLAVORx the sugar that Mary Poppins crooned about? Is FLAVORx the fun Julie Andrews enthusiastically promoted to help get the medicine down in a most delightful way?

At first I was envious Pharmacists didn’t have this product around when I was a kid. I remember that awful pink colored, nasty smelling and horrible tasting Penicillin that made having the flu seem not all that bad. Then I wondered if FLAVORx was gluten and allergen free for those celiac and allergic kids out there in today’s world.

I placed a call to FLAVORX headquarters today and learned that all FLAVORx flavors are gluten-free, sugar-free, dye-free, contain no sodium or phosphates and are non-allergenic.

They can be found at all major pharmacies including Brooks, CVS, Rite-Aid, Target, Wal-Mart, Walgreens – as well as major supermarket retailers.

So put your doubts aside, concentrate on getting your little ones over the flu, sniffles and colds and have no worries about allergens – FLAVORx are gluten free, allergen free, and for the record … there’s no sugar in them either – not even a spoonful.
