After the vaccine fails and you get your symptom meds, sometimes you still need a little more. Maybe a hug, maybe a snack … or maybe some comfort food.
The most obvious and classic choice — whether it’s the flu, or even just a cold — is a can of Campbell Soup’s (CPB) chicken noodle soup. A warm bowl is a go-to for those looking to ease a sore throat and regain some strength.
Of course, the most important thing to keep next to your bed while you’re ailing is probably some good old water. As your doctor would tell you, staying hydrated is key when you’re battling the flu. If you need it from a bottle, PepsiCo’s (PEP) Aquafina is an option, along with Coca-Cola’s Dasani.
