As a boy the only time I ever saw Nestle's chocolate, (always in a red wrapper), was in coin-operated dispensing machines (which were also red) at railway stations. Nestlé must have made a sales arrangement with British Rail. For years, the price of a bar was 6d, and this 'tanner' bought a temporary diversion from the tedium of waiting for a train.
Being more accustomed to Cadbury's, for my taste Nestle's chocolate was always a tiny bit too sweet and creamy, but of course the opportunity to obtain a bar was never refused!
