I’m sure when I was a kid these were the strongest substance know to man? The used to literally used to blow your head off! We used to have competitions to see who could eat the most in one go!
But now they just seem…well…alright. But not particularly hardcore?!
Is it cause my taste buds have grown up?
I contacted the Fisherman’s Friend makers via their website to ask them about whether they’d changed their recipe, here what I sent and the reply I got:
I’ve just posted the same question on my blog to see if any of my friends can answer it, but wa shoping you might be able to?

But now they just seem very nice indeed, but not particularly hardcore?!
Is it because my taste buds have grown up? Or have you changed your recipe?
If you could let me know, that would be great!

Good morning James
Thank you for your interest in Fisherman’s Friend.
It must be that you have grown up and matured, because the receipe is still the traditional one that has been used for the last 140 years, we do have several different flavours these days, but the Original Extra Strong, is still the same old receipe that you tasted as a child.
If you would like some samples of our other flavours, send me your address and I can post some out to you.
So – it would appear that the recipe has not changed, but my taste buds have! AND I have some free samples winging their way to me now!
This example of generosity from a company is typical of those who wish to keep or win loyal customers through good customer service. In this case I wasn’t even complaining, purely making an enquiry! So it got me thinking….what else can I blag purely be enquiring about a product? I’m going to try and start a new section on my blog; the ‘blag blog’ and see what else I can blag, then blog about it!
I need suggestions, so post ‘em here or email me and let’s see what happens!
