I think drinking slushies is better than eating cough drops because slushies are more colorful and fun. Also, slushies are more safe because your more likely to choke on a cough drop. =]

Dude, you say that coughdrops are more dangerous because you can choke on them. Hello, brainfreeze-much? And don't you want to live a little? Take a chance, I eat coughdrops like they were candied water and I haven't choked! Also you state slushies are colorful. You can add tic-tacs to a bag of coughdrops and that would take care of two problems. Halatocis and a bad cough. Or just buy a colorful bag of coughdrops!

Coughdrops are better because you can take them into classrooms that ban all drinks. Also, they are portable and you can save them for later. Slushies melt and become nasty over time. So my dear girl, coughdrops reign supreme over the slushie family.

You made some good points. You mentioned that I should live a little, but someone is more likely to die choking on a coughdrop then having a brain freeze.

I have eaten cough drops before, so its not like I haven't taken a risk. I have just found that between the two, Slushies are more exciting! There is a larger variety of flavors and colors. And speaking of colors, adding tic tacs has nothing to do with cough drops and slushees. For that matter, I could just add cough drops to my slushie (even though I would find that disgusting). There are more colors of slushies then cough drops. I would drink my whole slushee before going to class because it is so good. The cough drop takes longer to suck because it tastes nasty. So my dear boy, slushies still rule!

Choking is a more serious danger than brain freeze, but I am pointing out that probability wise, brain freeze is far more likely than choking. There are a plethora of flavors for cough drops. I believe that all tasty treats were create equal which is why I will always advocate that slushies and cough drops are equal in the abstract and real world. That is why I do not think it fair to hold one tasty treat above another!

She forfeited so we never did find out the truth. So accept cough drops as supreme. Thanks all!

That is simple forgetfulness of a letter, whereas, since I know you personally, you have a tendency to use the wrong form of a word because of how you THINK it is spelled. Let's start a debate on that!

In a matter of opinion, this is a tough one, a tough one indeed.

While cough drops give the benefit of improving health (if not overdosed on), there's nothing like sucking down the pure syrup section of a slushee after a karate class.

Hmmm...

I will assume so. But um riddle girl, you should have used the word "than" rather than "then" in your title. Sorry, I am a grammar junky.

The debate is about "eating" cough drops, so does that include sucking them?

Uhmm..isn't choking a little more serious than getting a brain-freeze? Also, if you drink slowly enough, you won't get one. (If you do, just place you thumb on the roof of your mouth! :) Also, anything could happen that could make you choke on a cough drop such as somebody bumping into you. Also, a slushie has more texture. You eat cough drops when you are sick, so therefore ther eis no fun to it. You can drink slushies any time! :)
