Tin of chocolate worm cakes London, ca. early 20th century. In the early 20th century, children were regularly fed ‘worm cakes’ to keep tapeworms at bay. Such ‘medicine’ was unpopular and often tasted revolting. The cakes in this tin have been made more palatable through the addition of chocolate flavouring. Source: Museum of London
