What are Buttercup Original Menthol Sweets?

Buttercup Original Menthol Sweets provide relief from discomfort caused by sore throats and coughs. They are perfect for taking on-the-go and have a delicious mint flavour. Sore throats and coughs can cause irritating symptoms that can make talking and eating difficult. Buttercup Menthol Sweets can help to soothe sore or scratchy throats and discomfort caused by coughing.

What causes a sore throat?

Sore throats are a common problem and are usually not a cause for concern. They can be caused by a variety of factors including viruses, such as cold and flu, some bacteria and by smoking. They can cause a range of symptoms including:

  • Pain in the throat, particularly when swallowing

  • Dryness or scratchiness

  • Redness in the back of the mouth

  • Bad breath

  • Coughing

  • Swollen neck glands

Sore throats can be easily treated and usually improve within a week. You should seek medical advice if your sore throat does not improve after a week of experiencing symptoms or if you often get sore throats, as they may be a symptom of an underlying condition. 

How can Buttercup Sweets help to relieve cough symptoms?

Buttercup Sweets coat the throat and help to numb irritation and discomfort caused by sore throats and coughing. The sweets contain the active ingredient Menthol, which helps by cooling the throat and clearing nasal congestion mucus buildup. It also contains clove oil which can help to numb pain. These two ingredients work together to help soothe the throat, as well as relieve mucus build-up that can cause coughs and irritation. 

How to use Buttercup Sweets

Unwrap the packet and remove a sweet. Place the sweet in the mouth and suck until it dissolves fully. Take a few deep breaths to allow the menthol to clear the airways and allow the syrup from the sweet to coat the back of the throat as you swallow,
