    WHY is it legal?? And why do so many companies only offer cherry flavor?? Forgot water boarding - cherry flavored Tylenol complete should be the torture of choice at Guantanamo.

    Ugh, colds do NOT agree with me. Their remedies even less so.

    I actually like the cherry flavoured ones... Grape however is nasty.

    Best medicine ever though was the triaminic orange that we had when i was a kid!

    The cough medicine I bought is blue flavor and, even thought blue is my favorite color, blue flavor is even grosser than red or orange flavor. I don't know what blue flavor is supposed to be, but it's not something available in nature. Same with red (cherry) and orange (not citrus, I don't know what it's supposed to be) flavoured cough syrup. Who makes these flavors? Have they tasted fruit before?

    Grape is evil.

    Cherry tastes like other artificial cherry flavors. Grape is... just bad.

    All liquid medicine is evil! the clear cough meds are the worse the orange was the least but still EVIL! Growing up I would pace in front of it for an hour sometime before I'd take it and then still fight hacking it back up. Give me a shot or a horse pill ANY day of the week.

    I prefer Cherry NyQuil to regular NyQuil... at least instead of just tasting like ass it tastes like cherry ass.

    I don't even like grape candy because it reminds me of grape medicine. Yuck! Definitely think grape is the worst.

    I was always quite partial to the pink stuff that's kept in the fridge...penicillin I think?

    I like the clear liquid Benadryl too. Mmm.

    Liquids are known to be more effective than pills for a lot of things. Sore throats and coughs particularly.

    Cherry medicine will make me empty my stomach IMMEDIATELY. I have such a strong aversion to artificial cherry flavors that I used to tell people I was "allergic" because there wasn't a word that conveyed exactly how much I COULD NOT stand the stuff.

    I am literally unable to keep it down. Gagging just thinking about it.

    I don't care for cherries or cherry flavored foods.

    Somewhat related... Why does all toothpaste need to be mint flavored? Not everyone likes mint.

    There's cinnamon flavored and orange flavored too from I think Colgate. I think there even was a vanilla kind too and a berry kind.
