NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Brings Festive Cheer to Facebook with “Pass-the-Parcel” Competition. What is a Christmas celebration without the rich and creamy goodness of a quality cup of coffee? With this in mind, stylishly clever capsule system, NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® is giving the gift of coffee to Facebook users this festive season. A fun application will see a virtual “pass-the-parcel” making its way among friends, until the very last layer has been unwrapped to potentially reveal one of 50 NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® machines that will be given away from 09 December to 20 December 2014*.

Visit the NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® SA Facebook page (, to participate in a virtual game of pass-the-parcel.

You’ll be invited to click on the parcel to unwrap the next layer and if you haven’t been lucky enough to get past the last and final layer, you’ll choose a friend and pass-the-parcel onto them. They too will be given the opportunity to unwrap the parcel because isn’t that what friends are for?

If you unwrap the winning layer, you stand in line to win a NESCAFE® Dolce Gusto® Coffee Machine, Cappuccino cup set, bubble capsule holder or travel mug.
