Vintage Snake Oil: Daniel’s Famous Cold Tablets

Cross posted from Coffeefied, Operafied, Fluffified, Beglittered

Daniel’s Famous Cold Tablets!  Don’t expect a cold to cure itself! (I thought that was the only known solution?) But these are “Indispensable in the treatment of colds, la grippe, headache, and constipation!”

No ingredients listed, other than chocolate, as in “chocolate coated and pleasant to take” so there’s that.  However, these are popular. 

The Formula of DANIEL’S COLD TABLETS is widely prescribed by physicians everywhere and the demand for them is increasing with such rapidity that a special laboratory force is constantly required in their preparation.

Lab force 1!  To the COLD TABLETS!
