If you’ve had a heavy weekend of drinking and are battling through a bit of a hangover, then this may come as cold comfort to your ears, or rather your head.

A supermarket in South Korea has launched a hangover-fighting ice-cream. The Gyeondyo Bar, which aptly translates to “hang in there”, claims to be the first of its kind to cure hangovers.

This supermarket representative says the name expresses the hardship of employees who have to suffer a working day after heavy drinking, as well as provides comfort to those who have to come to work early after frequent nights out.

While there are pills, beverages, soup and even cosmetics that claim to combat the after-effects of alcohol consumption, the ice lolly is proving rather popular.

This man says he likes the grapefruit flavour. Unlike many hangover cure drinks, it doesn’t taste of herbal medicine.

Drinking, often in groups of co-workers, is big business in South Korea and so are hangover cures, which generate roughly 86 million pounds a year.

Difficult words: cold comfort (this is a joke – this means that something will not help you), launch (to start something), aptly (appropriately, suitably), claim (to say), ice lolly (a piece of flavoured ice cream on a stick).
