What is a Fire Drop?

A Fire Drop is a spicy throat lozenge containing cayenne pepper! Cool right?

Spicy, hot cough drops…how does that work?

Great question! Cayenne pepper contains capsaicin, a natural folk remedy for sore throats, the common cold, allergies, and the flu. As opposed to other cough drops which merely soothe sore throats, the cayenne in Fire Drops attacks the virus head on.

Cayenne…? That sounds scary!

We see your point, but there’s really nothing to be afraid of. The pepper in our drops is mild enough that it won’t scorch your throat, but strong enough that it will help treat your symptoms.

So how hot are they really?

Everyone’s comfort level with cayenne or heat in general is different, so its hard to give an exact answer. That said, Fire Drops are not designed to test your limits, so there’s no need to be afraid. Give ‘em a try and see for yourself!

Ok. Ok. I’m sold! Where can I buy these?

Just four ingredients: organic cane sugar, organic brown rice syrup, organic cayenne pepper, and organic butter.

How were Fire Drops born?

Fire Drops were born in our friend Anita’s kitchen! Anita was huge into natural remedies and started researching the benefits of cayenne pepper when she came down with a cold a few years back. She had the idea to incorporate cayenne into a convenient lozenge so she could easily pop one in her mouth at the earliest signs of a sore or scratchy throat. In her testing, she found that they really worked! Anita started handing out some of the homemade lozenges to friends and family but after all the positive feedback, she realized she needed to scale the operation and find a manufacturer so more people could experience the amazing power of cayenne!

Social Enterprise…? What does that mean and how does it work?

As a Social Enterprise, we take a portion of our top-line revenue and give it back to a cause we believe in. We’ve chosen to partner with Homes of Hope, a San Diego based charity focused on building homes for families living in impoverished communities. Cool right!?

Are there other ways of getting involved with Homes of Hope?

Absolutely! Thanks for asking! You can check out their website here to find some more information. They are always looking for volunteers in a variety of capacities.

Who are those handsome men I see on the About Us page?

Oh those guys? They’re great aren’t they? Those are the owners, co-founders, and operators of Fire Drops; brothers Brett and Scott Johnson. Some real cool dudes if I do say so myself 😉

How long will delivery take?

I’ve got a coupon code! Where can I add that to my order?

Coupon code? Sweet! If you click on your cart in the top right corner of our webpage there is a spot to plug in your coupon on the left side of the page right below your items list.

Will I receive a receipt with my order?

Absolutely! Once you submit your order on our website you’ll get a confirmation and digital receipt sent to your email. We’ll also include a hardcopy when we ship your order.

When will my order ship?

We typically ship within 1-2 business days from the time of your order. It really depends on how far behind Scott is on the Bachelor as to whether or not he has time to package up your order.

How secure is the Fire Drops online store? Is my data protected?

We take your data seriously…so seriously in fact that we don’t even handle credit card information. Our third party vendor (stripe) does.

All card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons are able to obtain plaintext card numbers; instead, they can just request that cards be sent to a service provider on a static whitelist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, etc.).
