He’s got a cold. We’re in Switzerland. This is a no-brainer. Riccollaaaaaa! We never bought them in the US, so I can’t tell you if they taste the same. Regardless, they are surprisingly good.
Here’s some fun Ricola info for you. The mountains on the label are the Eiger (the ogre) on the left, the Jungfrau (virgin) on the right and the Monch (the monk) between them. Obviously.
Ironically, the Ricola gardens are outside Zermatt home of the Matterhorn (another famous mountain, but not on the label).*
One more interesting Ricola tidbit, Michael Jackson included them in his pre-concert ritual!
Here’s the link to the commercial, Halloween Ricola commercials, a politician whose aide is coughing, a slightly off color European commercial, some funny ones in German featuring typically Swiss things like Heidi, hunting, mountain climbing and a goat. WARNING: If you watch it, you will be bellowing “Riccollaaaa” all day long.
* There are actually five Ricola gardens in Switzerland.
