I've been on a quest to find something that will help with my nausea. I had heard of Preggie Pops (good Lord, that name is just AWFUL!), and considered trying them. They're basically suckers that are marketed to gullible pregnant women, and supposedly help make you less nauseous. I had been looking for them in stores, but wasn't able to find them anywhere. After feeling particularly craptastic most of yesterday, I hunted these things down online. Since I have very little patience when it comes to stomachaches, I needed some instant gratification, and the online shopping just wasn't going to do it for me. Luckily for me, the non-pregnant version, Queasy Drops, are available at my friendly neighborhood Meijer (no "s") store.
So, I went to the store, found the Queasy Drops (which were on clearance for $1.98. Score! Though, that should have been my first clue...), bought a couple of bottles, and ate one as soon as I got to my car. Besides the fact that it tasted like crap (ginger flavored candy = nasty!), it didn't do much for me. I thought maybe that was just a fluke, and the tastier ones would work better. I'm such a sucker (no pun intended) when I get my hopes up.
After a full day of Queasy Drop usage, I've discovered that these candies absolutely live up to their name - they don't do anything other than make me feel queasy. I should have known. Sugary foods have been making me feel like puking recently. I don't know why I thought the anti-nausea candy would be any different.
Moral of the story: Anything with a name like "Preggie Pops" is for gullible pregnant women, and won't really do you any good. And Queasy Drops = instant nausea. What a waste of $1.98.
