Big Papa may have felt left out of the Halloween festivities, because today he hauled out his very last ‘Nestle for Men‘ bar. Yep. For men.
We purchased this bar some time (years) ago in Armenia, because…well, you never know when a guy might need a manly boost.
The Nestle company launched the bar in 2005 for its Russian market. This is a big bar of chocolate, thick, rectangular, and divided into large pieces, “which will not be lost on a man’s palm” (as you can see in this photo).
I don’t read Russian, but our Armenian translator at the time, said something to the suggest this chocolate is “untouchable man’s property.” Protect from women was the product’s slogan.
Here are the ingredients in Russian and in Armenian. Taste-testers, Big Papa included, suggest that “big” flavor does not go hand-in-hand with this hefty bar. But hey, how many guys in the U.S. get to take a bite out of a bar like this one?
There was also an advertising campaign to go along with the bar and I recently found this Youtube video. No comment on stereotyping women as sub-par drivers.

And thanks for being my spokesmodel Big Papa!
