Preserved junk food collection on display



Fons Biemans, a deceased snack bar owner from Tilburg, left behind an entire collection of Dutch junk food favourites preserved in jars, which promptly reminded me of the Chamber of Curitosities Tsar Peter the Great had in Saint Petersburg, Russia, but with food instead.

Biemans used the preserved food as a menu, never having to display fresh product which could just stay in the freezer. A teacher discovered the collection in a cellar, during a move.

And there’s a website called Snack-O-Theek where you can look at the collection online. You can play ‘guess that snack’, too.
