100 Grand Bar


100 Grand Bar (formerly known as $100,000 Bar spoken as "hundred thousand dollar bar" until the mid 1980s) is a candy bar produced by Nestlé in the United States. The candy bar was created in 1966, and named after a series of successful game shows. It weighs 1.5 ounces (43 g) and includes chocolate, caramel and crisped rice. The bar contains 201 calories; it is low in cholesterol and sodium, but high in saturated fat and sugar. Its slogan is "That's Rich!"

In the early 1990s, Gregg "Opie" Hughes and Anthony Cumia, DJs on Boston radio station WAAF-FM, promoted a giveaway of "100 Grand" over several weeks before finally revealing to the eventual winner that the prize was a 100 Grand bar rather than $100,000. In May 2005, a Kentucky woman sued another radio station, WLTO-FM in Lexington, Kentucky, for a similar prank in which radio DJ DJ Slick gave away one of the bars, leading (so the woman claims) listeners to believe the DJ was giving away $100,000.

Comedians have used the bar's name in similar fashion. In the episode "Business School" of The Office, Michael Scott tries to use the bar as a motivational tool. He says: "And if you sell enough of them, you will make a 'one hundred grand'!", and displays a 100 Grand bar. When he throws the bar into the bewildered audience, they separate, and let the bar hit one of the students in the head. On the Colbert Report, an image of a 100 Grand bar was part of the introduction to a recurring segment called Colbert Platinum, presented as tongue-in-cheek news and advice for the extremely rich. On the March 24, 2011 episode, Colbert interviewed the Senior Fellow for Global Health on the Council on Foreign Relations, Laurie Garrett, about escalating food prices and joked, "candy bars have gone up, I saw one that cost 100 Grand!"

Abuelita


Abuelita is a brand of chocolate tablets, or powdered mix in individual packets, made by Nestlé and used to make Mexican-style hot chocolate, also known as chocolate para mesa (English: "table chocolate"). It was originally invented and commercialized in Mexico since 1939, by Fábrica de Chocolates La Azteca. The name is an affectionate Spanish word for "grandma" (literally translated as "little grandmother" or "granny"). Since 1973, Mexican actress Sara García has been the image for the brand before it was acquired by the Swiss company in the 1990s.

The chocolate usually comes in hexagonal tablets that can be split into wedges, and then melted into milk. The drink can also be mixed with spirits such as Kahlúa. The product ingredients (in order of percentage): sugar, chocolate processed with alkali, soy lecithin, vegetable oils (palm, shea nut and/or lllipe nut), artificial cinnamon flavor, PGPR (an emulsifier). Abuelita has been a staple Mexican product for more than 60 years, and can be identified by its unique taste and packaging. Other "Mexican chocolate" tablet brands are Ibarra and Moctezuma.

One suggested method for preparing Abuelita is to bring a saucepan of milk (or water) to a boil, and add the tablet of chocolate and stir continuously with a whisk or molinillo (a whisk-like wooden stirring spoons native to Meso America) until melted and frothy or creamy. The drink is served cool or chilled in preparation for mixing with alcoholic drinks.

Chocolate Abuelita is often prepared for special occasions, such as Las Posadas, (Christmas season) and El Día de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead), a day in which people remember their family and friends whose spirits have gone to the afterlife.

Aero (chocolate)


Aero is a chocolate product manufactured by Nestlé. It was originally introduced to the North of England as the "new chocolate" by Rowntree's in 1935. By the end of the year, it had proved so popular with consumers that sales were extended throughout the UK. By 1936, sales of the chocolate had spread to New York City, and has since spread to many other countries including Canada, Mexico, Australia, South Africa and Japan. Aero has been manufactured by Nestlé since 1988 after they absorbed Rowntrees.

Known for its unique "bubbly" texture that collapses as the bar melts, it is available in many different forms including Aero Bars and Aero Biscuits, and originally had a mint flavour.

The process of manufacture was patented in 1935 by Rowntree's in York, England.

In 1935, Rowntree's launched Aero Mint into the UK, followed by the milk chocolate variation in the 1970s. The wrapping was green (brown in the chocolate version) and displayed the "Rowntree's" script logo and the large word "AERO", along with the slogan "Hold on tight or I'll fly away!" below the "AERO" name. The words "Aerated Mint Chocolate" ("Aerated Milk Chocolate" for the chocolate version) were seen multiple times in the word "AERO." In the 1970s, an advertisement was aired in which kids flying a kite thought the kite was an Aero bar.

There are several flavours of Aero. These include the Original Aero (which consists of milk chocolate throughout), Mint Aero (with a green, bubbly, mint-flavoured centre, covered in milk chocolate), Caramel Aero (with a caramel layer on top of the chocolate layer), Dark Chocolate Aero, White Chocolate Aero, Latte flavour Aero and Crispy Aeros (similar to Nestlé Crunch bars). Orange Aeros (orange/chocolate layered) were sold for a while as well, and larger 100 g sized bars are currently available in some stores. In the 1970s there were also Strawberry flavour bars. In the UK, and recently Canada, Aero Bubbles are also available. These are small, round chocolates with a bubbly centre, available in Milk Chocolate, Mint and Orange flavours and a mixture of both. In May 2012, Aero Orange and Aero Bubbles Orange were both introduced in Canada and in the UK as a limited edition. In January 2014, customers in Canada reported on two new flavours of Aero Bubble Bars that arrived in shops; a Strawberry flavour and a new variation of a Caramel Aero. While bars were (and still are) produced with chocolate and a liquid caramel, the new Caramel Bubble Bar consists of a Caramel flavoured white chocolate centre with a milk chocolate coating.

On 25 April 2011, Nestlé released the first flavour of Aero Biscuits onto the market in The United Kingdom and Ireland. The product consists of Aero aerated chocolate, along with several sphere-shaped pea-sized biscuits nestled in a milk chocolate coating.

On 21 May 2012, Nestlé released two additional flavours of Aero Biscuits onto the market in The United Kingdom and Ireland. The two flavours are Aero Orange Biscuits, and Aero Mint Biscuits (Aero Mint is Aero Chocolate's best-selling flavour). Aero Orange Biscuits consist of a layer of aerated-milk chocolate, orange-coloured orange-flavoured aerated-chocolate, along with several sphere-shaped pea biscuits nestled in the chocolate. Aero Mint Biscuits consist of a layer aerated-milk chocolate, green-coloured mint-flavoured chocolate along with several pea biscuits nestled in the chocolate.

The Aero Biscuits product line contains no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives and has 99 calories per bar.

Immediately following the release of Aero Biscuits, Nestlé began to heavily market and advertise the product line on 1 May 2011. Most television and print advertisements featured well-known British actor, Tom Adams. Adams was featured in a series of advertisements for the product line. The advertisements were broadcast throughout The United Kingdom and Ireland. The series of television advertisements were produced by Dublin, Ireland advertising agency DDFH+B.

After Eight


After Eight Mint Chocolate Thins, often referred to as simply After Eights, are a confectionery product that are intended to be used as after-dinner mints. They were created by Graham Edwards Rowntree and Company Limited in the UK in 1962 and have been manufactured by Nestlé since its acquisition of Rowntree in 1988.

The mints were originally manufactured at Rowntree's York factory, before production transferred to Castleford, West Yorkshire in 1970. They are now manufactured in Halifax, following Nestlé's closure of the Castleford factory in 2012. After Eights are sold across Europe and North America, and one billion After Eights are made annually.

After Eights were originally made from dairy-free dark chocolate. However, in 2007, Nestlé started adding butterfat to After Eights, making them a dairy product. Nestlé has also made special editions of After Eights, including orange After Eights and milk chocolate After Eights.

The fondant in the centre of After Eights is made from a stiff paste of saccharose, water, and a small amount of the enzyme invertase. This fondant can readily be coated with dark chocolate. After manufacture, the enzyme gradually splits the saccharose into the much more soluble glucose and fructose, resulting in a more liquid consistency. Maturing of the mint is said to take over three days.

The After Eight family of products includes:

Alpo (pet food)


imageAlpo

Alpo is an American brand of dog food marketed and manufactured by the Nestlé Purina PetCare subsidiary of Nestlé. The brand is offered as a canned or packaged soft food, as well as in dry kibbles.

Alpo, an abbreviation of Allen Products, was founded in 1936 by Robert F. Hunsicker in Allentown, Pennsylvania. In 1964, the Allen Products Company was acquired by Liggett & Myers Tobacco Company. In 1980, the Liggett & Myers Tobacco Company was acquired by Grand Metropolitan and in 1986 Grand Metropolitan sold the Liggett Group but kept Alpo Petfoods, Inc. In 1995, Nestlé SA acquired Alpo Petfoods, Inc. from Grand Metropolitan. In January 2001, Nestlé SA announced the merger of Nestlé Friskies with Ralston Purina to form the Nestlé Purina PetCare Company.

For many years, the brand's main television commercial spokesman was Lorne Greene, who created the concept of eating one's own dog food by claiming that Alpo is so good he feeds it to his own dogs. Ed McMahon also had a long association with the product on television, and Garfield was a "spokescat" for the brand in the 1990s. Alpo was the sponsor of the debut broadcast of the long-running television news magazine 60 Minutes, on September 24, 1968.
