Mine is something from the doctor. It tastes like cotton candy gone horribly bad. There's this sweet taste that's almost good, then the aftertaste hits. Then ya gotta drink glass after glass of water to drown it. Blech!

After taking a lot of really bad tasting cough syrups, I finally found one that is very good. It tastes like lemon ice tea and has no bad aftertaste. I now stick with this whenever I have a cough.

I never take cough mixture, for the simple reason it doesn't work for more than two minutes and I detest the taste of it. I took a lemon one quite a while ago now, and it didn't taste of lemon at all. It tasted like Gripe Water with a thick, liquid painkiller in back of it. Yuck... it was diabolical, and like you say, needed glass after glass of water to get rid of the taste. Now, I take cough pastilles. They taste much better, of honey, methol or blackcurrant... whatever they're meant to taste of, and they work! Brightest Blessings.

Now this was a useful discussion. I have a nice list of things to use instead of the nasty stuff!

Not only are they nicer, they're more effective... for me, anyway.

It is hard to describe but it is thick and strawberry flavour quite nice really.It has a medicated tang to it.

No fair! You're supposed to taste it, and let the full effect roll over your tongue. If we gotta suffer, we want to share the misery! lol
