Yeah, but...
Something like this takes no planning - just chuck it into a bag with the rest of the stuff, just my style!

Well after I dropped Nescafe an e-mail last night asking why they didn't have any info on the "Hot Cans" on their website I got this reply...

Quote:
Dear Julian

Thank you for your recent email.

Samples of Nescafe Hot When You Want were distributed in the Birmingham area first to ensure that this exciting new technology fully meets with consumer expectations and, due to it's success, it was extended to the midlands area early last October on a trial basis.

This trial has now ended and the product is no longer being made.
A long process of evaluation now begins and hopefully the product will return sometime in the future.

Thank you for the interest you have shown in our company.

Nestle UK Ltd

So there you go! - They tested the product in Birmingham! a city famed for its campers, hikers, and boaters - and they wonder why it didn't take off!

Anyway, this still doesn't explain why the Reading M4 Moto had shelves and shelves full of the stuff.

All I can say is - if you like it and you see some you better buy some while you can!!

Jools


ps mayby we should all bombard Nescafe asking where can we get it

I have been buying this stuff in various service stations in Kent, London and the South East for a couple of months, and last time i asked the GPS that was a fair distance from Birmingham - shows what Nescafe know!

Well it's a quick hike down to Reading services for me then! I'll go and give it a try as I'm absolutely intrigued by this - caffeine addict and serial junk food muncher!

We saw these cans only last week in both Chieveley and Membury Services on the M4 - in the Petrol Station part.

Must be heading South for the Winter!!

Definately, the cans we've tried have all worked well and produced nice hot coffee.

Only problem was some of the crew were fussy and wanted the can with no sugar

So I'll have to stock up with a choice of cans before our next trip

ps - Moto services still seem to have loads at the moment!
