Sugar loaf

Contemporary Era, Europe

Beet sugar production began in Europe in the 19th century following the Continental Blockade instituted during the Napoleonic wars, thus preventing the importation of cane sugar. After sugar cubes were put on the market at the turn of the 20th century, sugar loaves were no longer used on a daily basis, but were kept in reserve in case of shortages.
