Nestlé has announced that it will be reverting back to the classic Milo taste Kiwis have known and loved for more than 80 years.

Nestlé business manager Anna Stewart said the company put the Milo formulation through extensive development and taste testing to create the best possible taste. “We’ve had ongoing feedback that Kiwis missed the old taste of Milo, so we knew it was time to bring it back. But this wasn’t a process we took lightly. We knew it was vital to nail that classic taste and we weren’t going to stop until we had that perfected.”

“Our absolute focus has been on recreating this much-loved flavour – and we’re excited for Kiwis to try the new Milo Classic NZ Taste and let us know what they think,” added Stewart.

Milo Classic NZ Taste is due in stores nationwide from Monday 20 May.
