O yee of little faith. I don't have access to a Nesquik retailer where I am at right now.
I will follow up.

I too love a glass of chocolate milk and wont let these guys get away with this...
What's next, they take the filling out of Oreo's?

These people are just trying to make people believe that there is really a contest. Rubbish! They just say it because they want people to buy that disgusting milk! :(

I LIKE CHOCOLATE MILK.....YUMMY....

Scott Shaffer said...

OK I did it. I got both a Nesquik chocolate and vanilla gulp drink. I saw the code and tried to send in to win.

Here are the problems. The bottle said to send in to NQWIN, well I have a Treo and my keyboard(QWERTY) doesnt correspond to a normal cell phone keypad.

After I figured out what the short code was (they should have put on the bottle) I looked through the plastic window to see the tiny code (which I could have read without buying). I sent the code and got a response that code was invalid. I tried it again..same response.

I went home went and went on to their website to enter code. Code was NOT a winner...Neither was this mobile campaign.

A 5 year old could have created a better campaign than this..too many hurdles..mobile has to be ease of use.

cumn2me69@yahoo.com I'VE TRIED E MAILING TO GET THE CODES AND I'VE BOUGHT ONE STRAWBERRY MILK THE OTHER DAY AND NOTICED THAT YOU WERE HAVING A CONTEST SO I WENT OUT AND BOUGHT 9 SINCE THEN AND HAVE ALL THESE WRAPERS WITH CODES AND THAT IS FALSE ADVERTISEMENT. OR WHAT IS THE HANG UP EMAIL ME OR CALL ME ANYTIME AND LEAVE MESSAGE

Scott Shaffer said...

Well first off, I hope you're lactose tolerant.

I updated this mobile campaign and gave it 2 thumbs down. Too hard to enter, and not geared for the average cell phone user.

Nestle, being a kid oriented company should get some advice for their next mobile campaign.

Look at it this way, at least you have strong bones now.

is this contest for real or just a joke. I cannot access it. keeps saying error

Scott Shaffer said...

You answered your own question..is this contest for rule or a joke..

If it is this hard to get participation, the campaign is a bomb.

If NesQuik and other brands that cater to the teen crowd want to have any chance of getting permission, they first have to get participation....

Sadly, they failed at both with this.

Its plain stupid i looked through the window that showed the code and there was only a letter then i went on nesquik coller and it asked what is your date of birth so i typed in 1974 on the year and it told me that i'm to young how stupid the game is just a fake!

Why say there is a contest when there really isn't.

Scott Shaffer said...

OK..there's been too much disappointment w/ this campaign.

Look for exposure at how poorly this campaign is with pics on

Mobile Moblog

Let's see what we can do about this.

I tryed and tryed the nesqiuk cooler website but never could find where to type my code in.

I'M NEVER WILL BUY YOUR PRODUCT AGAIN. THIS IS THE LAST NESQIUK BOTTLE I BUY BYE BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Make sure you have gone to www.nesquik-cooler.com and not www.nesquick-cooler.com.

The latter is a website for finding free stuff.

You have to put your birthdate in, give an email address and your name.

Then you can put the code in.

It was pretty simple.

Scott Shaffer said...

OK now that we've given NesQuik enough promotion for this, along with buying more chocolate milk...

I bought 2 bottles (choc and strwbry) and will post images and story on

It was easier for me to get into the game site online. I ended up going to nequiks web site, and a couple of clicks later, I was entering my game codes. Pretty easy, really. A nice site, but not much flash. Just a few graphics to get you interested. The difficult part came when I tried to enter the game codes. Because of the natural tendancy of the plastic in the bottle to distort the image on the other side, I couldn't get the codes entered correctly. I ended up cutting the part from the label that held the code, and that cured the problem.

The End Result...

Nestle's Grab Gulp an Win mobile campaign, choked on ease of use.
