A Boxes Collection

The boxes of banania are very symbolic in France for collectors. It was a drinking chocolate mark. The Vichy pastilles were sold at the origin in pharmacies. Nowadays you find it everywhere but in plastic bags. But both are worldwide trade mark? I don't think?

Very warm and inviting picture. I looked up "banania" and found out that it is a chocolate drink that is made from banana flour, ground cereal, cocoa, and sugar, and contains 2.5 grams of banana per kilo.

And pastille refers to a medicinal pill or flavored candy, or to any kind of incense.

What did we do before the Internet? Encyclopedias I guess...but I since I don't own any, I would just be out of luck! LOL!
