I’ve had a sore throat most of this week – which while being annoying, has given me the chance to try the new “Strepsils Cool” throat sweet.

They certainly clear a sore throat: they also unblock your nose, and have the added benefit that if you breathe on the road after sucking one, you de-ice five yards of tarmac – which if the current weather continues could become a useful social skill.

They also come in a sturdy waterproof plastic tube, which I can envisage being pressed into service for geocaching purposes…
