I think Sony was originally meant to be 'Sonny,' as in 'Climb up on my knee sonny boy....' (which is weird enough, really, come to think of it)

Do you remember in the jingle Nestlé's Milky Bars were sang without the "ay" sound in Nestlé - maybe they thought us Brits wouldn't manage it. Think it's changed now. I know in other ads and on news they pronounce it the French "ay" way

I live 2 miles from their factory in Hatton. If you told a local that you worked at Nestlays you'd have the pi$$ taken out of you something rotten. Smile

Ah! Rog

Do they mention that Nestlé is investing millions in the Hatton plant

Strangely enough, it has been reported in the construction sector as TutburyWink

I remember when they took over Rowntrees at York in the late 80's and I think we called them Nessles but as was pointed out back then they were and always ave been an Anglo-Swiss Company.

They got rid of the 'mishaps shop' at the factory though....the swines and York never smelled quite as chocolatety when they arrived.
