Some Like Them Hot - I Do! Review with images

AdvantagesReasonable price, relieve cold symptoms, clear sinuses and soothe throat.

DisadvantagesNone for me; some won't like the flavour.

"===A Chip Off The Old Block=== Do you ever have a feeling that you are turning into a replica of your parents? Itís been happening to me a fair bit lately. I have cold feet like my father and an occasionally snuffly nose like my mother Ė and thatís just for starters. They both always have some kind of cough sweet or mint to hand; I think Dad has shares in polos! With Mum itís usually some kind of menthol sweet. If you go anywhere with them youíre ..." Read review

Fishermans and also my Dad's "friends"!

AdvantagesReally effective!

DisadvantagesMay be too strong for some.

"The thing that is readily available from my Dad is the product I will now review, with my son even buying him 20 packets of them as part of his Christmas box last year! The product I will now review is - ďFishermanís friendsĒ. The oneís my Dad always has to hand are the original oneís, these come in there own yellow coloured paper packet, I read a review on these yesterday saying how they didnít have anyway of sealing, we actually anticipated ..."

Can you stand the heat?

AdvantagesNice when you have a sore throat

DisadvantagesSome people don't like them

"Fisherman's Friend lozenges were first invented back in 1865 by James Lofthouse. He made it first as a tincture to protect the throats and chests of fishermen while at sea. The glass bottles that he put it in though used to break easily while in the bad weather at sea so he thickened up the mixture until it became thick enough for him to have them made into the kind of sweets that we know today. They were packed in paper bags which made them last ..." Read review

I do like sucking on a Fisherman's Friend!

AdvantagesClear your head during or after a cold

DisadvantagesThey taste appalling! Sorry, but they do!

"I remember when I was a kid my nan used to eat Fisherman's Friend, then there was only two flavours but there are several different ones now. My nan always has these white ones, she was tough because this is the Original Extra Strong version! I remember trying one when I was about ten and hating her for letting me put the disgusting thing in my mouth! About two years ago though I had the worst dose of the flu I've ever had, I was so ill I went to ..." Read review

Vile horrible things!

AdvantagesThey did give my sinuses a blast

DisadvantagesTaste foul, smell foul, look foul.

"When I recently had a cold, I headed to Superdrug to stock up on some non-medicated natural remedies. My main issue was a sore throat and congestion, so I bought a mixture of throat lozenges and menthol sweets which I was hoping would give my sinuses a blast. These certainly did that, but they tasted so vile I preferred to stay congested to be perfectly honest! Fisherman's Friend are quite a traditional brand, I can remember my nan having these many ..."
