Kit Kat is one of the world’s favourite chocolate bars. Launched in the UK by Rowntree in August 1935 it was originally called ‘Chocolate Crisp’ and was an instant hit with British consumers, though many found the name a little long. The name ‘Kit Kat’ was then added in May 1937 and the words ‘Chocolate Crisp’ finally dropped in 1949. The brand quickly gained popularity and spread to all corners of the globe. It’s success has been built upon its perfect balance of chocolate and wafer, its unique product ritual and the iconic advertising line ‘Have a break, have a Kit Kat.’ Kit Kat is made up of several layers of praline-filled wafer covered in smooth milk chocolate. Each finger of the traditional two-finger or four-finger bar can be snapped off and consumed one at a time. Other brand extensions have been launched in recent years, including the very successful hunger satisfying Kit Kat Chunky and more recently the indulgent Kit Kat Senses. Along with the Rowntree business, Kit Kat was acquired by Nestlé in 1988 and is now sold on all five continents and in over 70 countries worldwide. In the USA it is manufactured under license by Hershey.

Lifebuoy Royal Disinfectant Soap was launched in 1894 as an affordable new product in the UK, to support people in their quest for better personal hygiene. Soon after launch, Lifebuoy soap travelled across the world, reaching countries such as India, where even today it is still the market leading brand.
Lifebuoy saves lives

The brand's core promise of protection and a commitment to support life through unbeatable protection is at the heart of the brand name itself – Lifebuoy, the guarantee of protection when you are threatened. For example, a 1930's campaign in the US was titled 'Clean hands help guard health', encouraging the use of Lifebuoy soap to kill the germs on hands that can cause health issues. A similar campaign continues today, with Lifebuoy hygiene education programmes ongoing in countries including India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Although it has been a popular brand in the Indian market since the 1930s, Horlicks underwent a revamp in 2003 to further increase its relevance. The modern & contemporary Horlicks offers 'pleasurable nourishment' with a delicious range of flavours including Vanilla, Toffee, Elaichi and Chocolate. With revitalized packaging synergistic with the new brand personality, it is a favourite with both mothers for its nourishment and kids for its great taste and variety.

In different countries, the product has different formulations in order to cater to varying consumer segments and serve different consumer needs. In India, the Horlicks available has been scientifically developed and specifically caters to the
nutritional needs of the Indian diet. It helps meet the requirements of essential nutrients in children, such as iron and vitamins that aid iron absorption. From the available data, it has been seen that children in India are not getting enough of these vitamins and minerals from their daily diet.

Thus, Horlicks is a beneficial supplement for children to aid not only their growth, but also enhanced attention and concentration. In fact, we have established this through a large clinical trial among school going children.

It is a rapid flaking of the skin, sometimes associated with dryness, itchiness or excessive oiliness. Everybody sheds the skin on his or her head, but when you have dandruff, your scalp speeds up the usual rate of shedding the dead skin. The result is noticeable flakes, or dandruff. There are other scalp conditions with which you may be familiar. Dry scalp results from a loss of moisture on the scalp and is characterized by small, dry flakes, tightness of the scalp and itchiness.
There is also seborrheic dermatitis, which is characterized by heavy flaking, severe itchiness, redness and inflammation. Low Tolerance One scientifically known cause of dandruff is Malassezia. It's a natural fungus found on everyone's scalp that feeds on the skin's natural oils. It can cause irritation and speed up the shedding of dead skin. Everyone's tolerance to Malassezia varies; the lower it is for you, the more likely you are to have dandruff. Stressed Out? There are other factors that can contribute to the production of dandruff -- some you can control and others you can't. These include stress, diet, weather, hormones and excessively oily skin. Any one of these factors can affect the likelihood of dandruff appearing. Use Head & Shoulders® ! The good news is that dandruff can be fought and even prevented.

"A glass and a half of fresh liquid milk in every half pound"
When Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate with its deliciously smooth texture and unique creamy taste, was first introduced in the early 1900s, it made an immediate impact quickly becoming the market leader. The success story has continued until today when it is still the top selling chocolate brand in the country. The Cadbury Mega Brand's broad family of products has an international retail value approaching US$1billion. As an international brand, Cadbury Dairy Milk carries the same distinctive image all over the world. Wherever you buy a bar of Cadbury Dairy Milk the pack design will be exactly the same, only the language will be different. The famous slogan "glass and a half of fresh liquid milk in every half pound" with the picture of milk pouring into the chocolate bar, is one of the all-time greats of British advertising.
How Cadbury Dairy Milk came about
Milk chocolate was first made by the Cadbury Brothers in 1897, but by today's standards was a very coarse dry product made by blending milk powder with cocoa and sugar. The milk chocolate market was then dominated by the Swiss who produced a superior product by using condensed milk. In the early 1900s George Cadbury was determined to meet the Swiss challenge and, together with the Bournville experts, started to research new recipes and production methods. By June 1904 the recipe was perfected and a delicious new milk chocolate made with fresh liquid milk, and containing far more milk than any previously known product, was ready for production in 1905. Although considerable technological advances have since been made in the production processes, the Cadbury Dairy Milk recipe is still basically the same as it was in 1904.
Not only but also
Besides Cadbury Dairy Milk, Fruit & Nut and WholeNut are two of the best loved varieties of the Cadbury Megabrand. Australia, for example, offers 23 varieties including Snack, Caramello and Breakaway.
Where you can find Dairy Milk

In June 2008, Cadbury Dairy Milk’s Gorilla was named the world’s best ad at the prestigious Cannes Lions International Adverting Award. The ad scooped the Grand Prix award beating off competition from more than 4,000 shortlisted entries around the globe. Cannes is seen as the “Oscars” of the ad world – and this major prize tops off a remarkable year for the CDM commercial. The second production 'Trucks', launched in March 2008, surprises and delights in the same way as Gorilla, as quirky airport trucks enjoy a race in a deserted airport. Following the success of the Gorilla and Trucks adverts, Glass and a Half Full Productions are delighted to bring you two great new remixes featuring our friend the gorilla and those fun loving trucks.

BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages are one of the most recognizable of the Company’s products. They were invented in 1920 by an employee named Earle Dickson, who worked as a cotton buyer. His wife Josephine was prone to kitchen accidents. Earle wanted a bandage his wife could apply herself, so he took two of the Company’s early products – adhesive tape and gauze – and combined them by laying out a long piece of surgical tape and placing small pieces of gauze on it in intervals. To keep the adhesive from sticking, he covered it with crinoline fabric. Whenever his wife cut herself, she cut a piece of the tape and gauze pad and used it as a bandage. Dickson mentioned his invention at work, and a new product was born. The first BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages went on the market in 1921, and were the first readymade adhesive bandages that consumers could apply themselves. Earle Dickson was made a vice president at Johnson & Johnson.

The drink contains mango pulp, water, sugar, citric acid, ascorbic acid, and approved colouring and flavouring.
Frooti was launched in a green rectangular TetraPak as a ready-to-serve mango drink. Although it wasn’t the first mango drink, Frooti quickly acquired a large market share. The packaging played a major role behind its success, since it could be carried easily and conveniently. Frooti also provided a refreshing mango taste that translated into a huge demand for itself. The tagline “Mango Frooti, Fresh and Juicy”, helped the brand strengthen and consolidate its position as the leader.
Over the years the brand has experienced a series of repositioning. From the original tagline “Mango Frooti, Fresh and Juicy” to “Juice Up your Life”. Eventually, the original tagline-
“Mango Frooti, Fresh and Juicy” was reinstalled. The present ad campaigns focus on reaffirming Frooti’s leading position across India in a confident manner.
To ensure convenience, Frooti is offered in size variants: 1 litre, 250 ml and 200 ml TetraPaks. A consumer study revealed that the consumers needed a recap bottle that didn’t exist in the mango drink segment. Parle Agro considered the consumer requirement strongly and launched Frooti in a new hygienic hotfill PET bottle, making it the first mango drink to be offered in the PET bottles.
