The story of Nesquik®
It has been over 70 years since Nesquik® was first established in the US in 1948. With its iconic chocolate taste combined with a glass of milk, Nesquik® helps to make milk taste great for you and your kids. Keep reading to find out more about the Nesquik® story…
Nesquik® ’s chocolate milk powder was first introduced in the US in 1948 under the name Nestlé Quik. The instant chocolate drink was a big hit, a quick and tasty addition to milk that the whole family loved.
Nestlé Quik launched in Europe in the 1950s under a new name, Nesquik®. The chocolate milk drink was loved overseas, too with a new banana flavour powder introduced in 1954.
Nesquik® reached the UK in 1957 and quickly rose in popularity, helping to pave the way for the brand eventually being sold in more than 100 countries worldwide. Nesquik® is still a much-loved milkshake brand in the UK.
As well as debuting their new strawberry flavoured milk powder in 1960, Nesquik® also introduced us to someone new – Quicky, the Nesquik® bunny. The objective was to build the brand with a distinctive and loveable brand character that could be kids’ secret friend. Quicky has always been there through the years as a fun partner to your Nesquik®.
Nesquik® added more fun and tasty ways to enjoy Nesquik® throughout the years, with a range of Nesquik® Cereals launched from 1999 onwards.
In 2019, Nesquik® introduced its All Natural* range with all the fun and flavour of original Nesquik®, but made with natural ingredients and recyclable paper packaging.
