RE: NESCAFE commercials. The powder is said to contain WHITE, COFFEE, and SUGAR. Now in normal circumstances, I could assume that they mean white coffee and/or white sugar. But the product is called THREE IN ONE. So 'white' is a thing! Also there is a definite pause after 'white' in the commercial. Someone help!

My boyfriend pointed this out yesterday - they used to say "milk", but dubbed it over again!

I assume it's white paint. Or White Lightning, the "cider". Hair of the dog, and all that. Or snowflakes on a cold November mourning.

Some what in that direction.

At my work we had coffee whitener for the coffee machine, which was later on replaced by coffee creamer.
Difference if I remember it correctly: the whitener was mostly casein and stuff, but the creamer had as subtitle "milk product" and did list milkpowder as one of the ingredients.

Based on that I think whitener is a product that acts as coffee creamer but probably can not be named as creamer because of legislation or lack of real cream?
See : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-dairy_creamer ?

Hah that is so funny. Can't call it creamer, so let's just call it 'white'! That's better! I love it.

Quote:
Ketracel-white (or simply white) is an addictive narcotic containing an isogenic enzyme and nutrients. One of the active ingredients of white is yridium bicantizine. The Jem'Hadar soldiers of the Dominion were genetically engineered to lack the enzyme which white provides, and require frequent doses of the drug to survive. The white also provided all the nutrients they required, alleviating them of the need to eat or drink.
