Oberpfaffendorfer made their special cocoa available only during the Christmas season. According to the company’s archives, distributors were required to send unsold packages back on December 26th. If there were any left that is.

It’s easy to see how it went so fast. With its strong robust flavor and its dark, rich chocolate, it must have seemed just the thing for Santa’s elves at the North Pole, let alone folks at home. Of course, it didn’t hurt that advertisers encouraged consumers to serve the cocoa in a huge bowl. No wonder there was never any left after Christmas.

You can keep this reproduction of the original 1912 “Cocoalicious – 25-Hour Blend” ad up all year round; there aren’t any rules now.

Each print carries an official Curio & Co. stamp and comes with an embossed Certificate of Authenticity. For more information on product materials, click here.

Who couldn’t use a bowl of cocoa so strong (and delicious), especially on a Monday morning?

Oberpfaffendorfer

Founded in the early 1900s, Oberpfaffendorfer is a family-run company manufacturing packaged foods. With roots in German-speaking Switzerland, the company is as known for its family loyalty as it is for its packaged “comfort food.” Oberpfaffendorfer fully embraced the frozen food market in the 1950s, and some of its popular products include Neptune Nibblets and its Croquettes. The company slogan, “We’re a mouthful!” plays on the company’s difficult-to-pronounce name, as well as its reputation for hearty food.

Curio & Co. on display

Curio & Co. featured in a new exhibition at Atelier Olschinsky in Vienna, Austria

A new exhibition looks at the playful side of our collections.

Come see Curio & Co. up close and on the walls in a new exhibition at the Atelier Olschinsky Art Store in Vienna.

Titled ‘Let’s Play,’ the exhibition will look back at the last six years in Curio & Co. history. All your favorites will be represented – from Frank and His Friend to Spaceman Jax, from vintage ads to vintage time machines, and plenty of surprises and never-before-seen pieces.

Plus, the exhibition will include an in-depth look at our latest project: The Tarot of Musterberg. The complete deck will be on display, as well as larger-than-life versions of our favorite cards that are sure to deal up fun and fantasy.

Prints of many of the items on display will be for sale at the gallery as well as on their art store website.

Previous shows at the gallery have featured really terrific artists, and we’re honored to be included in that group. From digital landscapes to imaginative topography, each artist brings a wide rage of variety to the gallery. And what you can always expect from Atelier Olschinsky is impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail.

We’ll be there for the opening, enjoying the trip down memory lane – looking at past projects and how far we’ve come, celebrating the completion of the present project and looking ahead to see where we might go next. If you’re in Vienna, please stop by and join us: Let’s Play!
