Yes, but only when nobody is looking so no one can accuse you of advertising for them by flashing the wrapper around.

Yes, because you did not buy them yourself, and to throw them away would be wasteful. However, you must bury the wrappers deep in the trash so noone will know.

Hmmm, looky here, Nestle Crunch with Caramel........wonder if that's any good? *burying the wrapper*

YES!!! afterall, you CANT be wastefull of anything! :

It wasnt YOUR money that bought them -some unknowing sap bought it & he/she already did the damage, no greater harm can come of it.
(unless you consider the fact that all that chemicaly created SUGAR & Crap may kill ya, as harmfull!) :




PS. The Crunch w/ Carmel ROCKS!! (DAMN YOU NESTLES!!) :

Whats going on? Why boycott Nestlie?

(I am asking not because I like the products - frankly, I think everything they make is NASTY, but just wondering what the deal is)

Nestle pushes their formula in 3rd world countries saying it's better for their babies than breast milk. :

Are you sure you don't have any of their products? There's a really looooong list of things to avoid. I get tired just thinking about it. :LOL

But, I still avoid everything.

Except that halloween candy. Which has been gone for a long time in this house.

I try my very best to avoid all Nestle products. The list is endless, but there's nothing I 'need' to have, so it's easy. The Halloween candy was already purchased, so eat it. Just don't get so addicted to it that you have to have it, lol.

Hey, I avoid Nestle. But, if it just happens to end up in my house by some other means than me purchasing it, it's fair game...

Only time I get to have a Butterfinger is if someone gives one to DD on Halloween.

I can live with that.

I actually checked after reading your post and we have nothing. Mostly Trader Joes stuff. I do a lot of from scratch stuff, so we have a large bulk section in the [tiny] kitchen - no food from any mainstream (except TJ's, Whole Foods) stores.

Aren't you a bunch of hypocrites?
How can you boycott one company, then eat what they make just because you didn't purchase it?
That does not make sense to me. If you stand behind your convictions you do it 110%. Not 50%. :

because they are standing behind their convictions. The convictions is not to fiancially support nestle, they did not buy their products. I don't boycott anyone at the moment but if I did I knwo there is a differance between fiancially supporting a product and eating one stupid bar that comes into my house during halloween NOT being purchased by me.

Consuming the product is essentially promoting the product. If you want to make a stand, TAKE a stand! Don't say one thing, and do the other. So you don't finacially support Nestle, you will still consume their products?

How is consuming the product, in your own home, that you never purchased hypocritical? I just don't see the point you are trying to make. I could definitely see the point if I was in the midst of a crowd in Times Square and enjoying a little 'Nasty' chocolate, because people would see it and make them want one too.

i do not buy nastle or any of their sister-products if i can help it.

there is almost always an alternative.

however, i did eat the crunch that was in each of the kids' goodie-bags. wouldnt want them to get a taste of it and decide they like it, now would we?

they were both the plain, not anything with caramel... now i am wondering, lol


tis okay- we wont be buying any!


also, next year i will be helping put the goody-bags together for the kids, so there will be no nestle products since i will be the one helping to buy them....

l, <>< wife to my sweetie, proud mama to 3 cubs, 2 who clw & 1 that i i ep for . baby was evicted early by induction due to severe pre-e/hellp syndrome
