Carnation Instant Breakfast Coupons-Carnation Instant Breakfast Coupons: Carnation is a brand of food products. The brand was especially known for its evaporated milk product created in 1899, then called Carnation Sterilized Cream and later called Carnation Evaporated Milk. The brand has since been used for other related products including milk-flavoring mixes, flavored beverages, flavor syrups, hot cocoa mixes, instant breakfasts, corn flakes, and ice cream novelties. Nestlé acquired the Carnation Company in 1985. Carnation was founded as an evaporated milk company. With the widespread availability of home refrigeration and fresh milk and cream in the late 20th century, the demand for evaporated milk decreased. Carnation diversified its product portfolio after the 1950s and was acquired by Nestlé in 1985 for $3B. In 1907, the public was first introduced to the promotional phrase, "Carnation Condensed Milk, the milk from contented cows". This slogan referred to the higher quality of milk that came from the happy cows grazing in the lush lands of the Pacific Northwest. Carnation used this slogan for decades, and it even spawned a radio variety program entitled "The Contented Hour," which featured entertainers such as Dinah Shore, Jane Powell and Burns and Allen. Burns and Allen's own CBS television program, which premiered in 1950, was sponsored by Carnation. As was common during that era, instead of cutting to filmed commercials, Burns, Allen and guests broke the "fourth wall" to plug Carnation products in a comedic, often tongue-in-cheek way during the show. Since the 1960s, labels of cans of Carnation Condensed Milk have contained recipes on the inner side. During the twentieth century, Carnation Evaporated Milk became the subject of humorous, satirical rhymes. One example that may date back to the year 1900 is as follows: Carnation Milk is the best in the land / Here I sit with a can in my hand / No tits to pull, no hay to pitch / You just punch a hole in the son of a bitch. This quatrain, or a variant of it, has often been portrayed by storytellers as the result of a slogan contest or advertising contest sponsored by the Carnation Company, although such a contest never actually occurred.
