I have mentioned in a couple of reviews recently, that last week I had a terrible sore throat - far worse than I had ever experienced before, and one that actually kept me from sleeping soundly at night. The added complication however was that I am pregnant and thus more restricted as to what I can and can't take to ger relief from it. THe basic paracetamol which I was allowed to take did nothing for my sore throat, and so I relied heavily or honey drinks and lozenges. In the past, my husband would always have had a packet of strepsils in the cupboard but I never had much success with these before, even prior to pregnancy, and so being recommended ...

My husband has the incredible ability to suck on two Fishermen's Friend's Throat tablets at once. I can barely keep one in my mouth for any longer than ten seconds, so goodness knows how he manages this. I have tried to eat the original ones for years as I know that given half the chance they will decongest and help me when I have a really bad cough. I am a bit of a wimp though and suck on a Strepsil instead - that's about as daring as I get.

I have used Fisherman's Friends for many years and I am not one of those people who finds this throat tablets difficult to suck on. It's hot, but that's the way it works. I used the Original Fisherman's Friends for many years before I discovered that they had started to make different flavoured ones. I still prefer the older more Original flavour but the blackcurrant one makes a pleasant change. The taste of the blackcurrant isn't as strong as I was expecting and it still has that harsh hot flavour that is so familiar to me in the Original tablets. I buy these from the supermarket and the packs are exactly the same size as the original ones. The cost is ... Read the complete review
