Description:

Colonial advert for Homoeopathic Cocoa made by Taylor Brothers Limited.

Taylor Brothers was founded in 1817 in London. It established one of the country’s biggest cocoa factories and had considerable cocoa-making expertise. In 1873 virtually its entire factory at Brick Lane and Wentworth Street was destroyed by fire, but it recovered quickly and expanded its range to around 50 different types of drinking cocoas. The company had a Mustard and Cocoa Mill. Taylor Brothers claimed to be “the largest manufacturer of cocoa in Europe” around 1880’s. Its most successful product was Maravilla Cocoa, which was sold in tin-lined packets by grocers nationwide. The company also made Taylor Brothers’ Original Homeopathic Cocoa and Soluble Chocolate as well as Challenge Mustard, which was “celebrated for its pungency and purity of its flavour.”

From the original edition of the Australasian Sketcher.
