Sweet success for Swiss duo Federer & Ricola

jpl_0708It would seem like Roger Federer’s special delivery of Ricola sweets to Wimbledon was the perfect treat to keep him focused on winning the All England Club trophy for a record sixth time. Having made history with a 15th Grand Slam win by beating Andy Roddick in an epic 5 set thriller, Federer is showing no signs of slowing down.  Pete Sampras, who held the record until Federer defeated Roddick, believes he could go on to winning 18 or 19 trophies.

The UK division of the Swiss company Ricola wanted to show their support for the sporting legend by sending over a selection of the herbal sweets to keep him refreshed during the gruelling tournament.

Andy Richman, country manager for Ricola, said:  “Playing on centre court in front of thousands of fans has got to be a stressful experience but Federer kept his cool and we’re delighted with his success – we just hope that he enjoyed our sweets.

“Bursting with 13 Swiss herbs and boasting several sugar-free options, the secret formulation of Ricola Swiss Herb Drops offers a refreshing great taste that is sure to brighten up even the most stressful of days.”

Available in convenient click-shut boxes, they are the ideal sweet treat and mouth freshener, whether you’re out and about, at home, in the office or just about to win Wimbledon.

Made from the finest natural ingredients including Speedwell, Lady’s Mantle, Cowslip and Thyme, Ricola sweets are renowned for their soothing and refreshing properties, and most importantly their great tasting mouth-watering flavours, which include the tempting Cranberry.  Ricola is priced at £1.25 for a box.
