NEWS: New NyQuil Flavor Gives Cold Sufferers Another Option Besides Blech and Double Blech

I personally don’t like taking NyQuil in LiquiCap form. It’s easier to take, but I don’t get the alcoholic warmth that slowly coats my digestive system when I take a shot of it in liquid form. It’s soothing and it feels like my mommy is rubbing my chest from the inside.

The only problem I’ve had with Liquid NyQuil was the fact that there were only two flavors: red and green. Yes, I don’t remember what the flavors actually are because they both taste horrible. But, I think, if I use their colors as a clue, they might be cherry and car air freshener. But now there’s a new flavor I can use to get nighttime relief from coughing, sore throats, headaches, minor aches and pains, fevers, runny noses and sneezing, and for helping me fall asleep whenever I run out of sleeping pills.

Vicks NyQuil Vanilla Cherry Swirl sounds like liquid candy, but it’s got the same levels of acetaminophen, dextromethorphan, doxylamine succinate and alcohol that are found in the original red and green flavors.

It’s available in 10-ounce bottles.

  1. Lewis Black nailed it when he said that NyQuil is the only thing on earth that tastes like Red and Green. I’m pushing 30 and I still can’t take liquid Nyquil without a bottle of water chaser. Dimetapp ftw.

  2. Awww, Dimetapp tastes like childhood. 🙂

    I can handle NyQuil fine. But I will never be able to drink Five Hour Energy and not need a soda chaser afterwards. XP

  3. If you combine Vodka and NyQuil, it makes a nice Jagermeister substitute. Don’t do it. Your liver will fail.

  4. @Gordon – Nazi From Hell=Jagermeister and Rumpleminz. mmmnnn…NyQuil!

    The best is NyQuil Nighttime D, BEHIND the pharmacy counter (I have to sign my life away for it and show ID) Still has pseudeophedrine in it. Had it last night. Plan on having it again tonight. Mommy.

  5. This is the best title description ever for their previous flavors.

    Always stick to the liqui-gels version of Nyquil…

    Although I might have stole the word Liqui-gels from Advil’s marketing. Oh well.

  6. Is it still 25% alcohol? I always figured that’s why they sold it with a shot glass. I also remember when Vicks 44 first came out. It originally had 44% alcohol and a wonderful licorice flavor. Do they card you when buying cough medicine? I’ve gone on the wagon cough medicinally speaking so don’t know, although I used to be a Nyquil regular. Turns out a tablespoon of honey, perhaps with a glass of water/half lemon if during the day, works better. Tastier, too. Much tastier.
