What's hot: From tongue cleaners to shark cartilage

Make money. Now, there's a phrase heard less often in drugstores these days. But straight from the Chain Drug Marketing Association (CDMA) fall show and conference, there's new hope.

Presented here, in no particular order, is the unofficial list of hot items from the late-September meeting in San Antonio. All costs are approximate, retail prices. Unless noted, comments come from CDMA buyers, who identified these items either from their own purchases or after talking to buyers and sellers on the exhibit floor.

FM Sounds "World's Smallest Radio." No bigger than a hearing aid, this radio fits in one ear. AM or FM, the tiny item can be used for anything from sporting events to travel to livening up dull meetings. The price ranges from $14.99 to $19.99. The radio is made by American Technology Corp., 1-(800) 41-RADIO.
