I don’t remember those, I-Spy, but it seems you can still buy them - Simpkins

Things don’t change much here at Simpkins! The Original British Liquorice pellets under the Original Nipit brand, which was first used in the 1920s – Simpkins Aniseed Liquorice Pellets – the handy little pocket tin that contains some of the world’s finest liquorice pellets help clarify the voice, clear the throat and can help with annoying tickly coughs. Ideal for singers and speakers.

I-Spy, as far as Boris is concerned, I think these would do the trick.

I remember nipits(Imps)well, in the bad weather and when coughing or sore throat - certainly not sweets
