The Big Question

For centuries, mankind has pondered the Big Questions.

  • The existence of God(s)
  • The creation of the Universes
  • The meaning of life
  • How come Coldplay are so popular
My brain is currently pre-occupied by a similar conundrum:
Is it pronounced Nestle or Nestlé?
And who decided that we should ignore the Milky Bar ads of the 70s & early 80s and add a European inflection?

Is it just the 'ponsification' of products, in a similar way when Walkers got rid of Beef & Onion, replacing them with Steak & Onion (Beef vs Steak - same thing, surely, but Steak sounds more expensive)

Anyway, heres proof from 1981 - it clearly says Nestles (without the accent on the e)
