    I have a really sore throat right now, but I absolutely hate throat sweets like strepsils and soothers. I tried the halls ones, but they don't really seem to help, cause they're not medicated. Anyone know any good throat sweets that taste good too?

    Fishermans friends is like hot cinnamon.

    Strepsils do aniseed flavour and the medicated packets (where you get capsules and not the actual sweet kind) are quite nice (honey and lemon)

    Honeysuckers, but they're expensive if not on offer and you can't get them from many places. They're literally just manuka honey and fruit juice. I hate the really sugary/mentholy throat sweets. Honeysuckers do work for me - I only have to take a couple and my throat feels much better.

    Ooh, think we have some fishermans friends in the house somewhere... and it's something about strepsils, it doesn't seem to matter about the flavour, I just can't have them :/
