You know what's never fun? Having to take bad-tasting medication — especially if you're a kid.
When I was little, I had to eat these tiny bitter pellets for my asthma because I wasn't old enough to use an inhaler. My parents called them sprinkles and put them on ice cream to try and trick me into thinking they weren't disgusting, but that only seemed to enhance their nasty taste. To this day, I have trouble even looking at vanilla ice cream without feeling nauseated.
That said, while it definitely wasn't a pleasant experience, these pellets kept my asthma under control throughout my early childhood.
