From Baby To Lady

[She’s a lady….Oh whoa whoa whoa she was a baby].   Perhaps Tom Jones was thinking of this….LOLX

I was born with a mouth full of sweet teeth, and Dutch Baby was my favorite food & beverage companion, which I could eat or sip as well — spread on my roti, dissolved in my coffee or even jilat  off my jari !  Sedapnya !

Some time in the 1970s (memory a bit murky/milky now),  the name was changed to Dutch Lady;….it supposedly was done “for better product positioning”.  There were also claims that the word “Baby” could mislead uninformed people into feeding the condensed milk to babies.   Can someone verify that ?

Not sure if the Lady still produces condensed milk — have not seen a can for years now.

Ada Ikan Di Sebalik Pelekat ?

Smell something fishy ?

During my primary school days, Nestle started to print beautiful photos of Fishes on the back of the labels of their Milkmaid condensed milk tins.  We got hooked and persuaded our mums to buy Milkmaid, hoping to make a full collection – I think it was a set of 24 different fishes.  Nestle even sold a special album for us to stick the pictures on.

But often we got duplicated ones, which we used to exchange with our classmates.  Later on,  Milkmaid came out with the Birds series, Animals, etc…   I didn’t go beyond the fishes.

Later, folks realized that the scheme was a kind of Ada Udang Di Sebalik Batu, to make people buy more – but Nestle was wise enough not to have launched a Prawn series. LOLX
