In case you haven't already heard, I boycott Nestle products. If you're new here or don't know much about the company, you can read this post, as well as check out IBFAN's site or Baby Milk Action.
Every year, Baby Milk Action sponsors a "Nestle Free Week" and this year, Halloween falls within that week (October 26, 2009-November 1, 2009). I was talking to Danielle Friedland on Twitter and she had a great idea to create a special hash tag to promote boycotting Nestle for Halloween and I came up with #BooNestle. This is a great start for those of you who feel trying to boycott Nestle's extensive list of products might be too daunting. Simply don't buy Nestle's candy this Halloween and make a difference.
Nestle makes and/or distributes a ton of candy & chocolate products in the US which includes Aero, Butterfinger, Cailler, Crunch, Kit Kat (my fave...gah!), Orion, Smarties, Wonka, Baby Ruth, Raisinets, SnoCaps and more. If you can't tell if it's Nestle, don't buy it. Here's a list of items that are safe:
You can also RSVP to the boycott on Facebook and show your support that way.
- Hershey's Kisses
- Jolly Ranchers
- Mars Bars
- Almond Joy
- Tootsie Rolls
- Tootsie Pops
