Highlander sweetened condensed milk

Most of New Zealand’s Scottish settlers were Lowlanders. But the Highlands provided the symbols of Scottish identity in New Zealand. For more than a century, cans of a popular brand of condensed milk have been adorned by the figure of a Highlander (believed to be based on the drum major of a Southland pipe band).
