During my working career for large corporations, one of the subsidiary companies of Nestlé, known as Gerber International Foods, was the most interesting job that I held. I was responsible for the imported cheese products from Europe for our USA based customers during those ten years.
When I found the following flyer featuring Norway’s unique goatsmilk cheese in some of my papers, I knew exactly how old it was and where it came from. It reminded me of that little cheese shop in Asheville, North Carolina that always ordered our imported Norwegian cheeses, especially the Jarlsberg and Gouda. Ah, such memorable days of when I brought home many European cheeses to sample.
And, over the years there have been many changes and many new wonderful products introduced by Nestlé worldwide. Here’s are just a few that I found that are interesting. I hope you like them.
And, before I forget it… . Just the other day I saw a big truck with the name, Nestlé, on the cab and guess what? It was advertising “Skinny Cow” 100 Calories of Sheer Yum – (ice cream on a stick ): Yummy Nestlé Chocolate, it’s always been one of my favorites.
