Sniffles and sneezes

I’ve been down with a nasty cold this week.   There’s a lot it around, not surprisingly with the very chilly weather, and I noticed that Waitrose has been offering a discount to people buying both Lem-Sip (hot drinks) and Strepsils (throat lozenges) at the same time.  Moreover in the branch that I visited there were only a few packs of Lem-Sip – one of them the slightly new-agey sounding wild berry and hot orange version.  You could view this as an example of clever diversification.  Fundamentally Lem-Sip is really something very simple – it’s a hot sweet drink with some paracetamol and a decongestant – but somehow its makers have found a way of creating many different versions.
