Before you scoff at this hack (as I did when I heard the words "spray candy"), read on. Jessica’s onto something:
The last two times my five year-old son has been prescribed cough medicine the taste has been completely awful. The pharmacist will add a flavor for an additional $5 but it still is not enough to mask the bitterness. So, I bought him some Too Tarts SmartChoice candy spray (it costs less than a dollar) and let him spray some in his mouth before and after he downs the medicine. As it turns out the spray is not bad all, it’s made from real juice with no refined sugar and comes in a variety of flavors both sour and sweet. Now instead of my begging him to take his medicine he asks for it as soon as he wakes up.
