Started by Uncle Bert, this thread touches on historian food brands and marques which have existed since at least the Victorian Era, but are still available today for purchase at your local supermarket.  The thread contains lists on brands spanning several regions of the globe, including Great Britain, The United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Japan.  Other regions may be added as time goes by.

This stickied thread can be found in the Anatomical Section, rather than the Historical Section, but to make it readily available in both sections, I have provided a link in the Historical section as this is a purely historical research thread. Please click the link below:,35567.750.html

The rules for including brands into the list vary a bit depending on who is "curating" the List. Please contact and send inquiries accordingly!
