What do you like to eat and drink when you have a killer sore throat?

My throat is so sore I don't even want to talk. I woke up with it this morning. It's drainage from allergies. Too much pollen outside.

  • Tea or something hot. I will suck on sugar free candy all day just to keep my throat moist and then i can eat

  • Tea with lemon and real honey helps mine if it's soar. The tree pollen has coated everything here in it's yellow green dust a 1/2 thick here in SC. I FEEL your pain woman!

  • i can't remember the last time i had a sore throat. however i do remember that honey helped SOOO much. i'd get the squeeze bottle of pure honey and just let it pour down slowly and it would sooth it. my best friend does this too, she's prone to sore throats

  • I always want salt and vinegar potato chips for the tartness.

    I usually drink soda. Not the best thing to have, but it feels like that acidity helps the drainage.

  • Hot drinks, usually tea. Water or orange juice if i'm not otherwise sick (like feeling sick to the stomach)

  • Drinking water seems to hurt my throat worse so I trink tea and carbonated drinks. I try to fall asleep with my mouth closed at night so it doesn't get worse. try some chicken broth too. They have flavored now, my fave is garlic when I'm sick

  • To soothe my sore throat I take a couple spoonfuls (large spoons lol) of apple cider vinegar (which is disgusting but for me it works) then spend the rest of the day drinking hot tea with honey and lemon....it's usually compleltly gone by the end of the day

  • coca cola. it cuts the crap out that sticks to the back of your throat and makes it hurt.
