jakemanslogojakemansthroatchestWe were sent a couple of bags of Jakeman Minis, on-the-go soothing relief for sore throats and coughs, there is the Throat & Chest and Honey & Lemon Menthol sweets.

Each sweet is carefully infused with menthol, a clever ingredient that acts as a mild analgesic and provides stimulating vapours to soothe throats and help to keep the nose clear.

The miniature version of Jakemans original soothing sweets offer on-the-go relief and fit perfectly into handbags, making them an essential for the cold and flu season and all year round.

–       Menthol is unique for the cooling sensations it imparts to the skin, stuffy noses and sore throats. This sensation numbs nerve sensations creating the soothing effect found in Jakemans menthol confectionery

–       Menthol helps ease runny noses and it stimulates bronchial openings making breathing easier

–       Menthol has powerful anti-bacterial properties so it naturally kills off micro-organisms that may lead to a throat infection

Made with only the finest ingredients, Jakemans Minis contain no artificial colours or flavours and are suitable for vegetarians.

They are a great size as they just slip into your handbag, take up hardly any room at all. These have got me through a “cold” spell in the Constant Household and I have avoided the dreaded cold, so far, that Dean, Noah and Isla have had. I had a slight sore throat and bunged up nose, but these Minis have helped me get through that and luckily I haven’t had the full on cold. Touch wood!

The Jakeman Minis bags retail for about 49p and you can find them in most chemists and supermarket stores, you can buy them online here.
