These little hunks of ginger have been rolled in sugar to make it taste a little less strong and a little more edible. While eating these powerful pieces help to calm nauseated tummies, they also helps stop constant coughs. If you have that annoying urge to cough at night, wake up and eat a tidbit of crystallized/candied ginger. It works! Kroger used to sell it in the organic section, however, I haven't been able to find it for quite some time. Trader Joe's carries it sometimes and so do local health food stores.
