I tend to pick up a cold at least once a year, so I do like to keep a stock of remedies and helpful medicines in the cupboard to keep the symptoms at bay. Covonia has become my go to medicine brand when it comes to fighting sore throats and coughs, their products are really strong, which is just what I need!
These cough lozenges are brown on one side, reminiscent of the medicine the brand sells, and white on the other, offering a dual impact fight against coughs and sore throats. The brown side does taste very much like the medicine, which isn’t the nicest flavour in the world, but it does feel like it does something for your chest, by warming the throat and the oesophagus as you swallow. The white side offers more of a menthol flavour, which helps to clear the blocked nose that usually comes with a cold.
Overall I don’t find the sweets work quite as well as the cough medicine for loosening my chest and clearing it up, but they certainly help my breathe more easily and they really sooth a sore throat. They’re also the ideal sweets to have in your pocket in case you have a horrid coughing fit when you’re out or at work!
