A Little Piece of Ginger Magic

Friday, March 13th, 2009


I was definitely not cut out to be a sailor. Or a pilot. Or anything involving much motion. But I’ve learned some tricks to combat motion sickness, because although I don’t travel for a living, my life does involve a good deal of jet-setting. Dramamine is the classic antidote, but I try not to use medication too much: it always makes me feel a little funny after it wears off. What I do love, however, are these sweet and spicy ginger candies made by the Ginger People (notice the ambiguity of the gender, as opposed to GingerMAN??). The burst of spicy, sugary, ginger goodness not only keeps me feeling queasy-free, but it also lifts my spirits a little and helps me fight off sleepiness. Not to mention, the flavor is so refreshing that it gives any breath mint a run for its money. Needless to say, these ginger chews are pretty much a God-send for me! As the Ginger People say, this is “the only candy that bites you back”. And, don’t worry, that IS a good thing!
