I'm risking zinc toxicity here.

I'll be driving my way down to Miami this weekend, for an old friend's wedding. Despite my travel schedule, however, the failings of my immune system have decided that I won't necessarily be breathing whilst I make the trip.

In an effort to stave off whatever infection I may have (and for all I know, it might just be allergies), I've been sucking down zinc lozenges of various kinds. I originally used to get Cold-Eeze lozenges, because they were the only ones I could find. Then, one week in West Palm, I grabbed a bottle of Naturalite Cherry-flavored ones. At another juncture, I picked up some Target brand lozenges.

Now for those of you that have used zinc lozenges before, you know that they taste like sun-dried shit. They rob your mouth of any sort of moist feeling, and somehow screw with your tastebuds so that normal foods taste bitter.

Today, one of my co-workers suggested I try the Elderberry-Zinc lozenges from Now Foods. Amazingly, these taste good--mildly fruit-flavored, and not so much of the aftertaste.

I wonder, however, if they make my breath fruity-fresh. I don't want to be thought of as a possible father of Lousy Eenglish Kinigits...
