Bovril Is Liquid. Cocoa is Liquid. Both are Brown.

One cannot help but feel that the advertisers of these hot drinks have gotten a little over excited...

All adverts taken from 1909 editions of The Orcadian


  1. When it comes to brown drinks, I'm all in favour of the choccie one rather than the cow-flavoured one, but latte is best :-)

  2. We prefer very weakly brewed tea which is less likely to stain documents if carelessly spilled. And chocolate milk.


Are you delighted by what you have just read? Are you revulsed and appalled? Do let us know, we'd love to hear from you.
