Seasonal Yorkshire Pudding and Oxo

From the Cambrian Daily Leader, 29th December 1914.

[What sort of Yorkshire pudding was seasonal, and obtained from grocers?  None that I have heard of.]

[Many ads were beginning to refer to the war - especially ads for products that the people at home could send to their men at the front. Oxo was a meat extract, sold in a jar (like Bovril) or in cubes.  I think "Oxo is made in a moment" refers to making a hot drink from it.   The beef stock cube is still the main product sold under the Oxo brand, but it has diversified into other products as well.]
