Having had a cold a few weeks ago I was really suffering and I felt absolutely awful. However, I made the much needed trip to Boots to stock up on all the essentials to try and help my cold symptoms be relieved somewhat. Amongst all the liquid medicines and tablets I needed to ease my sore throat and looked for a suitable throat lozenge. I had forgotten the price you can pay for sore throat sweets and was amazed at how much Strepsils charge for such a small product. However, having a quick scan on the shelves and in the end opted for a make I have never tried hoping that they would be a small bargain but relive my throat. The brand in question is Jakemans. I ...

I don't normally eat sweets as I'm not a fan of them in general, but when I need a lozenge for a sore throat I will make an exception, sugary though they tend to be. I came across Jakemans throat lozenges in my local Tesco store at the counter and as I was in a rush I popped a packet into my basket before I could forget to buy any. The lozenges come in different flavours but I grabbed a packet of the blackcurrant menthol ones as I definitely wanted something strong and I quite like berry flavours. The lozenges come in a large plastic 100g packet and they are individually wrapped. I figured they would last a long time and I wasn't wrong there, as ... Read the complete review

I must have tried just about every throat lozenge and tablet known to man. I have always particularly like the Jakeman's lozenges as I don't find that they are too strongly flavoured and yet they are quite soothing and dos seem to work reasonably well. The nicest flavour of the bunch has to be the blackcurrant ones - my favourite flavour and one I cannot resist, even if I don't have a sore throat. I buy these from my local petrol station and they cost 75p for a 100g bag. That sounds like quite a lot of money but really they are worth it. I have also had the honey and lemon variety but I personally find the blackcurrant flavour so much more ... Read the complete review

I had a cold recently, and as I couldn't take anything medicated due to being pregnant, I stocked up on menthol and natural remedies. These Jakemans throat lozenges are available in several different flavours, but I chose the blackcurrant ones because at least they would taste nice and I had already chosen some more medicinal tasting lozenges such as Fisherman's Friend and Lockets. The lozenges are packaged as though they are boiled sweets, which I suppose they are essentially. They come in a 100g bag, which cost me 59p in Superdrug. I thought this was a bit of a bargain to be honest. They are individually wrapped which is handy if you're popping out and ... Read the complete review
