Zicam has been around since the mid 1990s, and their lozenges are legendary. While not uncontroversial, their proprietary, homeopathic blend of Zinc + fruit and flower essences are beloved by many (including us!).
So when they entered the gummy galaxy with their medicated fruit drops, we had to try them.
Sorry, not sorry, we love this weird, little "medicated" gem
Let's be honest, Zicam is one of the biggest names in the game, with their homeopathic rapid melt lozenges in the cabinets of moms everywhere. They practically fuel the winter months, and we love that they came out with a gummy (obvs).
These pack in their familiar ingredients: Zincum aceticum and Zincum gluconicum. But unlike the lozenges, these also come with Sambucus Nigra (aka Elderberry!)
Now this is where things might get polarizing. We personally love the weirdness of how much this tastes like Vicks VapoRub. The menthol factor totally dominates the fruity Elderberry flavor. We understand if you hate it. We think it's kinda everything.
Bang For Buck
Zicam is cheap. We're not gonna mince words. Considering they're also sold pretty much everywhere, this is about as affordable and accessible as it gets.
