Nestlé Do you have a minute?
And the winner is ... just excuse me while I make supper ... there, done .... Maggi 2-Minute Noodles, by Nestle! The wriggly ones, which have been keeping students skinny for decades, took the Sunday Times Product of the Year Award in its category, ticking several relevant boxes in these still-straitened times – value for money, at around R3.50 a pack, added value, now with extra fibre, and lifestyle enhancement, with four new SA-friendly flavours, including Steak and Chops, and Boerie. Other category winners include Pringle Rice Infusions, marketed here by Foregood, and legendary P&G brand Olay, which you will remember was invented on these shores.
Comment: Kind of a Lifetime Achievement Oscar for a hardworking star we’ve come to take for granted.
