Issued as insert with what product: Chicory

Notes: Checklist may be incomplete. Unnumbered.

These cards were issued with chicory. I asked French collector Serge Plumecocq about chicory and here is his response. Chicory is a coffee substitute, which appeared with the shortage of coffee during the blockade of 1806. It developed in the North, in Belgium, Germany. These are roasted endive roots (a salad). It's taste is between coffee and caramel. Widely used after the 1914-18 war, it is in decline, but today we find drinks, chicory breads. The factories that no longer exist used to include cards in the packages.

Thanks to Richard Minns and Serge Plumecocq for help with this checklist.
