Brief Description: French advertisment for Huntley & Palmers' Breakfast Biscuit
Subject Date: Around 1892
Publisher: Huntley & Palmers
 
Full Description: The Breakfast Biscuit was one of Huntley & Palmers' most popular biscuits. This advertisement in French declares that it goes well with butter and cheese and with coffee, tea or drinking chocolate. Walter Palmer developed the Breakfast biscuit in 1891 and it proved an immediate success as an appetising substitute for the baker's roll that was usually consumed with early morning tea or coffee. Joseph Leete, the company's continental representative, introduced the biscuit into France the following year where it also had considerable success. Demand was so high at home and abroad that a new Breakfast Biscuit factory was built.
