article imageNestle to Mayor Booker: Hot Pockets for all Newarkers

By Can Tran     Nov 8, 2012 in World
Newark - Nestle, the company that owns Hot Pockets, responded to Newark Mayor Booker's tweet about the tasty frozen food during the Sandy recovery effort.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Newark Mayor Cory Booker lived up to his reputation as the “super mayor.” He was active on Twitter in coordinating the hurricane relief efforts in Newark. Booker even invited nearby neighbors to come “chill” at his place while their power was getting restored. He even provided food, working chargers, and a working DVD player for neighbors. However, there was one person he couldn't help: Tyree Humes, someone who ran out of Hot Pockets. Booker couldn't help the constituent with the shortage of Hot Pockets; but, he did provided moral support.
Apparently Nestle, the maker of Hot Pockets, caught wind of Booker's tweets. Nestle, sent Booker a letter, about the tweet. In the letter, Nestle said it was saddened by the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy. Booker's once again living up to “super mayor” had reached the ears of those that make Hot Pockets. In response to Booker's tweets, Nestle offered hundreds of coupons for free Hot Pockets. They are there for Booker to give to people that stop by his house. Also, they said they already gave coupons for free Hot Pockets to Humes.
In short, the Hot Pockets issue has been averted.
