Translation below from this page in French -----------        https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valda_(pastille)

Valda (or commonly pastille Valda) is a candy, marketed by Omega Pharma, and presented in an ambiguous way as a remedy to relieve the irritation of the throat.
This pellet was invented by the pharmacist Henri-Edmond Canonne in 1904.
