I don't plan on eating the liver salts, until after the banquet perhaps?

Weetabix? modern upstart of a food, 1920s, totally unsuitable for the Victorian era, unless I take it back by time machine of course... oh yes -  I hadn't thought of that.

Connors Bros. of Blacks Harbour, NB, have been fishing the Bay of Fundy since 1885, and since their incorporation in 1893 have shipped Brunswick sardines around the world, including tonnes and tonnes of the little buggers to the troops during the Great War.

This isn't directly relevant to the UK, but I recently read that in San Francisco, there is a sourdough culture that's been kept in continuous use for something like 150 years.
I can't help wondering if something similar exists in the UK. Perhaps a distillers' yeast in Scotland, or something.

There's plenty of classic British breweries of Victorian age or even older, just a couple that come to mind are Batemans (1874) and Timothy Taylors (1858). Some beers are still brewed with classic techniques and equipment such as the Yorkshire Stone Square or the Burton Union System.

That's nothing. Old Bushmill's Irish whiskey hasn't changed anything since 1608.

So we have established there is a large amount of Victorian alcohol to be drunk, that's good. I need to eat though. I don't think we had any sour dough here in the UK but that does put me in mind of Hovis, the bread.

There is a Dutch brand from 1860, making chocolate flakes and sprinkles. De Ruijter.
We Dutch put chocolate flakes in all shapes, sizes and taste on our bread.

Sounds a bit posh to me...I don't think we can let the lower classes know there is such a thing as chocolate or there could be a revolution. Seriously though, sounds nice and I suppose it would be possible for speciality Victorian stores to stock Dutch bread, does it keep or is it fresh and likely to go off? Is it packeted?

Guinness (the brewery was founded 1756 I think)
William Grant and sons (makers of Grants Whisky and the Famous Grouse founded in the 1870's)
Arthur Bell and Sons (another whisky distillery can't remember when exactly it was founded)

Can't think of any other foodstuffs at the moment

Dr. Pepper! I don't think we ever had that over here, and Coca cola? isn't that the cleaning fluid made potable with the addition of gas, sucrose and a significant decrease in temperature? disgusting stuff unless you want to clean copper.

Walls sausages and bacon - Walls the butchers have existed for over two hundred years... Now I have some meat that isn't in tins.

And that also means I can have Walls pork pies

Your going to find more alcoholic beaverages than food. A lot of beer brands are from the victorian era.

Brakspears Bitter - brewed in Henley-on-Thames from 1774 until relatively recently, now brewed in Witney but in the same coppers.

Cut me - and it flows from my veins.
