  1. Haagen-Daz??? Nooooooo! Okay. Is Ben And Jerry’s still okay? (please say yes!). Either way, I still appreciate this list. No, really.



  2. Nestle own Rowantrees and Maynards(spelling could be wrong)who make fruit gums, wine gums and lots of soft chewy sweets in Ireland & U.K. Don’t know if they’re in the U.S.

  3. This site has a fairly big list, with some products not on this list. It’s scary how much they own. I’m currently looking up many lists online, and trying to add everything.


  4. Thanks for taking the time to compile this list! It is so sad to see that Nestle makes so many products. They clearly think they are big and powerful to get away with pretty much whatever they want.


  5. Because of the joint venture between L’Oreal and Nestle, this would include all products from The Body Shop. L’Oreal owns The Body Shop. Sad, but true. I had used their products for many years, but no longer. L’Oreal is an awful company anyway, but pairing up with Nestle makes it unacceptable.


  6. ben and gerry’s is another ice cream to be ambushed by nestle

  7. I have been boycotting nestle for over 10 years. Thanks for such a comprehensive list! Yay for You!!!

  8. Zephyrhills Water is also a Nestle product.
    Thanks for keeping the list!

  9. I was just searching more info on Nestle after viewing Flow this weekend and found your blog Love it and this list of Nestle products. I’m making my household a Nestle free zone. And, I’d like to add Ozarka to the list of Nestle bottled waters.

  10. I feel slightly ashamed that I didn’t know anything about the Nestle boycott until today, when someone in our office (I’m in Oxford in the UK) said we shouldn’t be buying Nescafe because of the African baby scandal. I had. I’ve had to do a whole load of research to bring myself up to speed!

  11. I am boycotting :)

  12. wow thats a long list…..
    I’m in!

  13. I just found out about the boycott today 5/2/10. What a sad state of affairs. I have notified everyone I know and asked them to do the same. Thanks for the post. There are some pretty sad and shocking videos on YouTube pertaining to this topic which is what lead me here. Peace and blessings.

  14. Here are more brands to add. Please forgive me if they are already there, it was hard comparing my list to yours.

    Chocapic
    Cini Minis

  15. Thank you for a new list, has just weeded out a few more!
    I have only been Nestle free for a couple ofmonths now, but there is somethingabout doing it that makes you feel good and feel like you are doing something worthwhile. I dont think it will ever Stop Nestle from doing what they do, as there are too many people who dont give a monkey, but maybe in time.
    My 2 oldest children understand that we dont buy Nestle and more. They got a simple explanation that they are mean to the poor mummies and the rainforests and are greedy. At 6 and 4 that is enough of an explanation. When we are in the supermarket, they spot Nestle and say “oh look thats Nestle, we can’t buy that” They are sometimes more vigient than me. They tell our friends and family if they buy something Nestle that we dont buy it.
    Continue with the good work!

  16. i will gladly give up haagen-dazs, although it’s been so long since i’ve had it…other than that, i’m happy to say i don’t buy anything on that list. on the other hand, it doesn’t make for a very effective boycott. huh. thanks for the list. :)

  17. thanks for the list, we changed our grocery list to include all the nestle we can use. their stock will go through the roof this quarter, please continue to update the companies that we (75%) of americans should buy.







  18. Because I do 99% of my shopping at Whole Paycheck and Trader Joe’s…I avoid most of these brands b/c we are a GFCFSF family.

    But my poor dog will be finishing his last bag of Proplan. Thanks for posting the updated list.

    We will join you in avoiding all things Nestle.




  19. Wow I had no idea that Nestle Owned so much, How Greedy can people be. Absolutely turns my stomach. I’m happy to say that I buy hardly any of these items on the list for my family. The only thing on here that I will have to omit from my lifestyle is the Perrier. But at least its easy to substitute with another brand. Thank you so much for posting I found it hard to find a list online.


  20. I recently committed to boycott nestle completely and I must say it has been fairly easy. there ARE other brands to buy besides Nestle made brands. The one thing that i actually really loved that I no longer buy and still haven’t found something equally good is my Ovaltine (i didn’t see it on the list) and ussually if a store didn’t have ovaltine i would buy nestquick so yeah. but it’s a good cause so I will live without.

  21. do you guys realise how ridiculous you all are? WHO CARES IF A CHILD HELPED MAKE YOUR FOOD?? AS LONG AS IT’S GOOD
    nestle just tries to maximise profits as any business does, it’s not its job to find out what their suppliers do

  22. this is my shopping list for tomorrow

  23. Didn’t see it on there, but on the back of the Gerber onesies it says Nestlé in fine print :-p

  24. I loved the article but am confused by the Nestle ads on your page. whats up with that?


  25. That is the right blog for anyone who needs to find out about this topic. You realize a lot its virtually arduous to argue with you (not that I truly would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, just great!

  26. A powerful share, I simply given this onto a colleague who was doing just a little analysis on this. And he in reality bought me breakfast as a result of I discovered it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to debate this, I really feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic. If potential, as you turn out to be experience, would you thoughts updating your weblog with more details? It is extremely useful for me. Huge thumb up for this blog post!

  27. A friend posted this site and I was shocked when I read about what Nestle is doing. I have no problem boycotting everything on the list except I can’t give up my Diet Coke >,< Other then that I will join in and stop buying anything else on the lists.
