Advert For Freeman's Pudding Powder 6228
This is an advertisement for Freeman's pudding powder. Pudding was a very important part of the meal in the Victorian era. The lower classes did not eat pudding very often and it was seen as a frivolous luxury that few could afford. Desserts such as cakes, plum puddings, trifles and jellies were very popular with the middle classes, as can be seen from the spread on the table. Freeman's pudding powder would have been very popular because it was so easy to make, was cheap and there were many different flavours; this leaflet lists almond, lemon, vanilla, peach, chocolate and nectarine.
