As Oliver has been on the mend, and I’ve been getting gradually more congested, I’ve been bogarting his Children’s Triaminic and Children’s Tylenol. Both are bubble-gum flavoured. Both claim to address cough, fever, congestion and aches. They seem to be about equally successful at this — a couple of tablespoons does indeed take the edge off. Victory goes to Children’s Tylenol, however: it flows out of the medicine cup much more fluidly, doesn’t stain the pyjamas if spilled, and its fake bubble-gum flavour is much more subtle, and doesn’t have the acrid aftertaste that the Triaminic does.
