  Nestlés Quik - The first powered chocolate milk mix. Developed in 1948, Nestle hired puppeteer Jimmy Nelson to promote their product on television in the 1950s with the help of his puppet characters Danny O'Day and Farfel the dog. They were famous for their signoff "N-E-S-T-L-E-S...Nestlés makes the very best...CHAW-W-W-W-CLIT!"

By  1973, Nestlés Quik had been renamed Nestlé NesquiNesquik Bunnyk and given a rabbit mascot called the Nesquik Bunny who pushed their nutritious chocolate drink to kids. The hyperactive Bunny who slurped an entire glass of Nesquik in one gulp used the catchphrase “You can’t drink it slow if it’s Quik.”

Nesquik comes in the traditional chocolate flavor, as well as a sugar free chocolate flavor and strawberry. All of which are now fortified with  calcium, vitamin C, and other essential vitamins and minerals to help build strong bones.
