Chocolate

With so much chocolate around in our Luxury Chocolate recipes set and now our Chocolate Heaven Recipe set, I had a look around to see what else I could find.

I love advertising memorabilia so I was pleased to come across this old catalogue for Hershey's chocolate products.















I love stuff like this. This catalogue is probably from the first decade of the 20th century and is beautifully illustrated with their range. At that time they could have taken pictures (although they probably would have been black and white) but instead they chose to pay someone to illustrate it.

There are many beautifully illustrated catalogues from this period, it's just a shame this kind of art has, in the main, died out.
