This jar of Vicks (named Wick in Germany because the original brand name sound like the English F* word) is probably as old as I am: It doesn’t have an expiry date on it. The label, which in the mean time has sufferred, says it was made in Cali, Colombia and that it cost 42 (I suppose Colombian Pesos), worth about EUR 0.02 at today’s rate of exchange. I don’t use it very much, but it comes in handy at the moment. Atchoo!
