Trix is a brand of breakfast cereal made by General Mills in Minneapolis, for the North American market and by Cereal Partners elsewhere in the world. The cereal consists of fruit-flavored, ground-corn pieces; the Trix trademark is used by Yoplait for a line of yogurt marketed toward children. General Mills introduced Trix in 1954 as a sugar-coated version of its popular Kix cereal; the original Trix cereal was composed of more than 46% sugar. The original cereal included three colors: "Orangey Orange", "Lemony Yellow", "Raspberry Red". Five fruit shapes and colors were added over the years: "Grapity Purple", "Lime Green", "Wildberry Blue", "Berry Blue", "Watermelon". In 1991 and again in 1995, the cereal pieces were given a brighter, more colorful look. General Mills' Yoplait division produces a Trix-branded yogurt marketed to children with sweetened fruit flavors such as "Watermelon Burst". Trix Swirls were introduced, with flavors such as "Rasp-orangey orange swirl". A new flavor, "Wildberry Red Swirl", was introduced in 2011.
Trix Swirls have since been discontinued. The cereal used spherical cereal pieces, but in 1991, these were changed to puffed fruit-shaped pieces to avoid clashing with Berry Berry Kix upon the latter's 1992 introduction. In 2007, they reverted to their original shape in the United States. However, Mexico was left as the only country to maintain fruit shaped pieces until around late 2018. In 2015, General Mills announced it would no longer use artificial colors in its cereals, that Trix would be among the first to change. Trix would go from six colors to four because satisfactory natural alternatives were found for orange, yellow and purple but not blue or green. On September 21, 2017, General Mills announced that the six-color version of Trix cereal would be reintroduced back to the market and that artificial dyes and flavors would be utilized to do so; the four color, non-artificial dye/flavor version would continue to be sold. In the same announcement General Mills stated that they are planning to re-revert the spherical shapes back to the puffed fruit-shaped pieces.
The fruit-shaped pieces soon came back around late 2018. By 1955, just one year after Trix's market debut, General Mills was experimenting with a rabbit puppet as a potential Trix mascot. However, it was Joe Harris, a copywriter and illustrator at the Dancer Fitzgerald Sample advertising agency, who created the trademark animated Trix rabbit, who debuted in a 1959 television commercial. Harris wrote the iconic Trix tagline, "Silly rabbit! Trix are for kids", still used in General Mills' commercial campaigns. Chet Stover, the creative director of Dancer Fitzgerald Sample's Trix account credited Harris with the creation of the Trix rabbit after viewing the new character in its 1959 television commercial. In an internal memo to Dancer Fitzgerald Sample employees, Stover wrote, "In a business where the only thing we have to sell are ideas, it is of first importance the credit is given where credit belongs — and Joe gets all the credit for this one."Tricks, the Trix Rabbit — voiced by Mort Marshall, by Bret Iwan — an anthropomorphic cartoon rabbit who finds children and wants to trick the children into giving him a bowl of cereal.
He would burst with enthusiasm but he would be discovered every time. Trix are for kids!”. These ads in the late 1960s and early 1970s sometimes closed with Tricks following up with “And sometimes for tricky rabbits!”. Tricks originated as a puppet; the plight of Tricks has drawn comparisons to Sisyphus, a Greek figure, doomed to endlessly repeat a futile task. He did, succeed in obtaining and eating Trix cereal on occasion, including twice as the result of a box top mail-in contest entitled "Let The Rabbit Eat Trix"; the results of the vote were overwhelmingly "yes", the rabbit was depicted in a subsequent commercial enjoying a bowl of Trix. Children who voted received a button based upon their vote in the election. In 1991, Tricks won a Tour de Trix Bicycle Race. At the end of the race, two judges are arguing about. In order to decide the fate of the prize, the children are called upon to send in their votes; the result was yes and Tricks got the prize, much to his delight. In commercials from 1967, the 70s and 80s as well as today, the rabbit was known to disguise himself to get the cereal, employing costumes as diverse as a balloon vendor, a painter and a Native American.
One alternate slogan for the cereal was, "Oranges and Grapes I see. Once, Bugs Bunny helped the rabbit in an attempt to get the cereal; the rabbit's popularity led him to appear in commercials for other products, such as a Got Milk? advertisement, in which he disguises himself as a man taking Trix from a grocery store.

Poland Spring is a brand of bottled water, is produced in Poland, named after the original natural spring in the town of Alfred, Maine it was drawn from. Today it sold in the United States; the spring was first exploited commercially in 1845 by owner of a nearby inn. Contemporary demand is so great the brand’s water is derived from multiple sources in the state of Maine including Poland Spring and Garden Spring in Poland, Clear Spring in Hollis, Evergreen Spring in Fryeburg, Spruce Spring in Pierce Pond Township, White Cedar Spring in Dallas Plantation, Bradbury Spring in Kingfield. Poland Spring was the top-selling spring water brand in America in 2006. In 2007, the Poland Spring brand adopted a bottle using 30% less plastic, as did the other Nestlé Waters North America brands; the spring has its origins in the late 18th century. In 1797, The Wentworth Ricker Inn opened at the homestead of Jabez Ricker. In 1844, Jabez's grandson, Hiram Ricker claimed that spring water from the property cured him of chronic dyspepsia.
In 1861, the inn was renamed The Mansion House. The inn had grown to a resort, his discussions with guests led them to praise the drinking water. In this period, it was quite fashionable to "take the waters" for all illnesses, causing an uptick in business; the Rickers soon began bottling the water. Expanded again into an extravagant resort that locals dubbed "Ricker's Folly", the inn was renamed the Poland Spring House and opened On July 4, 1876; the inn remained a significant resort into the early 20th century, but the Ricker family lost control of the company during the 1930s. A resort still operates on the site. Poland Springs operated independently since its inception until it was purchased by the Perrier Water Company in 1980. In 1992 Nestle acquired Poland Springs. In 1891 Maine's Bureau of Industrial and Labor Statistics listed 81 existing mineral springs. Twenty-three were used for commercial bottling, with total sales of $400,000. Today Poland Spring sells the majority of its water in portable 8, 12, 20 oz bottles.
Smaller 3 L, 1 gallon and 2.5 gallon bottles are available for sale in most supermarkets, for home delivery in the Northeastern United States. Other varieties of Poland Spring include sparkling, lemon and distilled, they are the producers of the Aquapod line of products. All Poland Spring products are sold for both safety and economic reasons. Today, no portable Poland Spring bottles are made from the number "7" polycarbonate plastic that contains Bisphenol-A; the large 5-gallon bottles are made of number "1" plastic and are BPA-free, while the 3-gallon bottles are made of number "7" plastic and may contain trace levels of BPA. Bottles made of PETE, which do not contain BPA, started to appear in 2013, they can be recognized by the different handle design. In the summer of 2005, Poland Spring changed the color of its 1-gallon bottle cap from dark green to clear; the reason for the color change was to remove the dye from the cap, more suitable for the recycling stream. Poland Spring changed to a lighter bottle called the Eco-Shape which uses 30 percent less plastic.
The new style made its debút in November 2007. Several towns in Maine have objected to the business practices of Poland Spring and its parent company Nestlé. In some towns, such as Fryeburg, Poland Spring buys the water from another company, the Fryeburg Water Co. and ships it to the Poland Spring bottling plant in Poland Spring. However, Fryeburg Water Co. sells water to the town of Fryeburg. The town of Fryeburg began to question the amount of water. In 2004, the town's water stopped temporarily because of a pump failure, but Poland Spring's operations were able to continue; the group H2O for ME wants to create a tax on water drawn for commercial purposes. However, Poland Spring said. State legislator Jim Wilfong proposed a 20 cent per gallon tax be allowed to be voted on in a referendum, but the measure was defeated, he believed that laws should be rearranged to place limits on the amount of groundwater landowners can pump out of their land. The town of Sterling, Massachusetts, is attempting to prevent Poland Spring from pumping spring water from conservation restricted town land.
Nestlé Waters North America has responded to an RFP issued by the Town of Clinton to purchase the Town of Clinton's Wekepeke aquifer water rights located in Sterling. In June 2003, Poland Spring was sued for false advertising in a class action lawsuit charging that their water that comes from springs, is in fact treated common ground water; the suit states, hydro-geologists hired by Nestlé found that another current source for Poland Spring water near the original site stands over a former trash and refuse dump, below an illegal disposal site where human sewage was sprayed as fertilizer for many years. The suit was settled in September 2003, with the company not admitting to the allegations, but agreeing to pay $10 million in charity donations and discounts over the next 5 years. Nestlé continues to sell the same Maine water under the Poland Spring name. In August 2017, a class-action lawsuit was filed in Connecticut alleging that “Not one drop of Poland Spring Water emanates from a water sourc
Nestlé Nespresso S. A. trading as Nespresso, is an operating unit of the Nestlé Group, based in Switzerland. Nespresso machines brew espresso and coffee from coffee capsules, or pods in machines for home or professional use, a type of pre-apportioned single-use container of ground coffee beans, sometimes with added flavorings. Once inserted into a machine, the capsules are pierced and processed, water is forced against a heating element at high pressure meaning that only the quantity for a single cup is warmed. Nespresso is a premium price coffee, by 2011 had annual sales in excess of 3 billion Swiss francs; the word Nespresso is a portmanteau of Nestlé and Espresso, a common mechanic used across other Nestlé brands. All Nespresso coffee is roasted and encapsulated in one of 3 factories in Switzerland, but the company sells its system of machines and capsules worldwide, as well as the VertuoLine system in North America and certain other countries. In 1976, Eric Favre, an employee of Nestlé, invented and introduced the Nespresso system to the business market in Switzerland without significant success.
Nespresso first tested its new concept in Japan in 1986, rolled it out to consumers in Switzerland, France and Japan the same year. A decade in part due to the efforts of Jean-Paul Gaillard who introduced the «Le Club» community, the product became more successful. In 1990, Nestlé signed a contract with Turmix, which started to sell Nespresso machines in Switzerland. Thereafter, other contracts were signed with Krups, Alessi, Siemens and De'Longhi. Starting out as an e-commerce business, Nespresso only opened their first boutique in Paris in 2000 as a concept store. Today, Nespresso has a global network of more than 700 boutiques in 67 countries; the first patent application for Nespresso's process of brewing espresso from capsules containing ground coffee was filed in 1996. Nespresso sells or licenses a number of different machines made in Europe; the machines carry well-known kitchen-equipment manufacturers' names such as Krups, DeLonghi, but are manufactured by Eugster/Frismag, a Swiss company, one of the world's largest coffee-machine producers.
DeLonghi manufactures the Lattissima models in Italy exclusively. Eugster/Frismag is an original equipment manufacturer and does not sell under its own brand. In 2000 Nespresso began distributing machines bearing the "Nespresso" brand. There are numerous models that range in complexity and price, from the entry level Inissia, U and Pixie ranges. Nespresso capsules were sold by Nespresso while the machines were under patent, are more expensive than an equivalent quantity of "loose" ground coffee; because of the hermetically sealed capsule, the coffee aroma does not degrade with time like coffee in a pack, opened. Nespresso sells 28 different Original Line arabica and robusta capsules. Limited Edition are released seasonally; as the system is no longer under patent and more third party capsules are becoming available on the market, can now be purchased in some grocery stores and shops. Each capsule makes one serving of coffee. Depending on the length of the pour, the capsule can produce a 40 ml Espresso shot, or a 110 ml Lungo pour.
Nespresso-supplied capsule bodies and perforated tops are both made of aluminum, while third-party capsules are made from a variety of materials, including plastic and aluminum. To assuage concerns on potential aluminum health effects, most of the capsule interior of Nespresso capsules is lined with food-grade lacquer. For the business market, a different system of Nespresso pods exists; these pad-shaped capsules are not interchangeable with the consumer capsules. Nespresso's hermetically sealed capsules are made of aluminum. Depending on the Nespresso system being used, the flat top or the pointy end of the capsule is pierced when inserted into the machine and the compartment lever is lowered; some machines make a single large hole, others make 3 smaller holes. When the machine is activated it pumps hot water under high pressure into injector holes poked into the narrow end of the capsule upon insertion; this causes the flat bottom of the capsule to rupture, as this is made of thinner foil than the rest of the capsule.
The base of the capsule holder has a number of raised squares which cause the foil to rupture at these points. The brewed coffee exits the capsule through these rupture holes and flows through a funnel nozzle into the coffee cup; as in pressure cookers, a safety pressure release valve inside the brewing chamber prevents an explosion from occurring if the normal coffee exhaust path becomes blocked. To appeal to the demand by North Americans for larger servings of coffee than the original Nespresso machine produces, in February 2014 Nespresso launched a new Vertuoline system of machines and capsules in the United States and Canada; the system produces Espresso, Double Espresso, Gran Lungo, Mug/Coffee and Alto/Alto XL cup sizes that characterizes espresso coffees and the original line of Nespresso coffees. Nespresso uses over 25 blends in specially-designed VertuoLine capsules; the VertuoLine capsules cannot be used in the original line of Nespresso machines. Nespresso continues to sell both OriginalLine and VertuoLine machines and capsules in the United States and Canada, targeting different market segments with the two systems.
The VertuoLine system uses two technologies not found in the OriginalLine. First, the system uses "centrifusion" (a term creat
Chocolate chip cookie
A chocolate chip cookie is a drop cookie that originated in the United States and features chocolate chips or chocolate morsels as its distinguishing ingredient. Circa 1938, Ruth Graves Wakefield added chopped up bits from a Nestlé semi-sweet chocolate bar into a cookie; the traditional recipe starts with a dough composed of butter and both brown and white sugar, semi-sweet chocolate chips and vanilla. Variations on the recipe may add other types of chocolate, as well as additional ingredients such as nuts or oatmeal. There are vegan versions with the necessary ingredient substitutions, such as vegan chocolate chips, vegan margarine, egg substitute, so forth. A chocolate chocolate chip cookie uses a dough flavored with chocolate, before chocolate chips are mixed in; the chocolate chip cookie was invented by the American chef Ruth Graves Wakefield and chef Sue Brides in 1938. She invented the recipe during the period when she owned the Toll House Inn, in Whitman, Massachusetts. In this era, the Toll House Inn was a popular restaurant.
Thus began the nationwide craze for the chocolate chip cookie. The recipe for chocolate chip cookies was brought to the UK in 1956, with Maryland Cookies one of the UK's best selling chocolate chip cookies; every bag of Nestlé chocolate chips sold in North America has a variation of her original recipe printed on the back. The original recipe was passed down to Peg. In a 2017 interview, she shared the original recipe: 1 1/2 cups shortening 1 1/8 cups sugar 1 1/8 cups brown sugar 3 eggs 1 1/2 teaspoon salt 3 1/8 cups of flour 1 1/2 teaspoon hot water 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla chocolate chips Although the Nestlé's Toll House recipe is known, every brand of chocolate chips, or "semi-sweet chocolate morsels" in Nestlé parlance, sold in the U. S. and Canada bears a variant of the chocolate chip cookie recipe on its packaging. All baking-oriented cookbooks will contain at least one type of recipe. All commercial bakeries offer their own version of the cookie in packaged baked or ready-to-bake forms.
There are at least three national chains that sell freshly baked chocolate chip cookies in shopping malls and standalone retail locations. Several businesses—including Doubletree hotels—offer freshly baked cookies to their patrons to differentiate themselves from their competition. To honor the cookie's creation in the state, on July 9, 1997, Massachusetts designated the chocolate chip cookie as the Official State Cookie, after it was proposed by a third-grade class from Somerset, Massachusetts. Chocolate chip cookies are made with white sugar; some recipes include milk or nuts in the dough. Depending on the ratio of ingredients and mixing and cooking times, some recipes are optimized to produce a softer, chewy style cookie while others will produce a crunchy/crispy style. Regardless of ingredients, the procedure for making the cookie is consistent in all recipes: First, the sugars and fat are creamed with a wooden spoon or electric mixer. Next, the eggs and vanilla extract are added followed by leavening agent.
Depending on the additional flavoring, its addition to the mix will be determined by the type used: peanut butter will be added with the wet ingredients while cocoa powder would be added with the dry ingredients. The titular ingredient, chocolate chips, as well as nuts are mixed in towards the end of the process to minimize breakage, just before the cookies are scooped and positioned on a cookie sheet. Most cookie dough is baked, although some eat the dough as is, or use it as an addition to vanilla ice cream to make chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream; the texture of a chocolate chip cookie is dependent on its fat composition and the type of fat used. A study done by Kansas State University showed that carbohydrate based fat-replacers were more to bind more water, leaving less water available to aid in the spread of the cookie while baking; this resulted in more cake-like cookies with less spread. The M&M cookie, or party cookie, replaces the
Caramac is the brand name for a caramel-flavoured bar, created by Mackintosh's, is now manufactured by Nestlé. It was first introduced in the United Kingdom in 1959; the name is derived from the syllabic abbreviation of Mackintosh. A similar confection is used in the covering of McVitie's Gold biscuit bar. A limited edition Caramac Kit Kat bar was released in the United Kingdom in 2005 and due to popular demand it was brought back in 2007. In 2015 a buttons version was launched; the name of the product was determined in a competition. The competition was held in what was the Norwich factory of Mackintosh's, won by Barbara Herne; the bar was made at the old Norwich factory until its closure in 1996, when production transferred to Fawdon on Tyneside, where it is still made. The bar is a pale yellow colour, is manufactured using sweetened condensed milk, various flavourings, sugar, it is packaged in an yellow wrapper. Nestlé Information about Caramac
