"We are proud to have Nestle Abuelita and Nescafe Café de Olla be part of our consumers' Day of the Dead celebrations."

Designed by local artists Ricardo Soltero and Adan Terriquez, the altar will portray Catrinas enjoying cups of Nestle Abuelita and Nescafe Café de Olla in the afterlife. On the same day, consumers will also be encouraged to participate in a costume contest sponsored by the brands for a chance to win $500 in cash and other prizes, and sample hot chocolate and coffee served with pan de muertos.
