Nesquik is a group of milk additives that are produced by Nestlé Company. It was first introduced to the U.S. by Nestlé in 1948 as a powered chocolate drink mix for milk that came in square tin containers.
When first introduced, the product was known as Nestle Quick. However, in the 1950s, it was introduced to the European market as Nesquik. In 1997, the name was changed worldwide to Nesquik.
Over the years, many powdered flavors have been introduced, including Banana in 1954, Strawberry in 1960 and Vanilla in 1979. Other flavors included Grape, Cherry, Jungle Jaffa, Mango, Cream, Triple Chocolate, Honey, Crème Soda, Caramel, and Cookies and Cream, all of which have been discontinued. A chocolate, no sugar added powder was introduced in 1993.
In 1981, a chocolate syrup was introduced and it was followed by strawberry flavored syrup in 1989. These products could easily be stirred into milk or could be used as a topping for ice cream.
Ready to drink bottles of chocolate Nestlé Quik came to market in 1984, followed by strawberry in 1987 and in 1990, banana. Vanilla and Double Chocolate flavors can also be found. Fat free milk Quik was introduced in 1998. Nesquik milkshakes became available in chocolate, strawberry and chocolate caramel.
