Triaminic vs. Tylenol Smackdown

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.

Peter, if a crocodile attached itself to your leg you’d blog about how much more convenient it was than a shark attack. I’ve never seen objectivity put to such good use.
