There are so many incredible treats on the shelves of New Zealand shops and supermarkets and the sheer amount of choice can be overwhelming. Don’t worry though, we’ve got you covered and have put together this list of treats you absolutely must try on your Wild Kiwi Tour.

Perfectly Formed Pineapple Lumps

Fruit and chocolate is always a dreamy combination, don’t you think? Covered in a thin layer of milk chocolate, these chewy pineapple lumps are just delicious. Let’s just say there’s a reason why pineapple lumps have been a popular sweet treat in New Zealand since 1935!

Open A Can Of L&P On Your Wild Kiwi Tour


Known as L&P, Lemon and Paeroa is a refreshing drink made from lemon juice and fizzy mineral water sourced from Paeroa, a town on New Zealand’s north island. This iconic drink has been around since 1907, so you simply can’t visit New Zealand without taking a sip of such a classic creation.

Does a chewy pink marshmallow coated in a layer of creamy chocolate sound as divine to you as it does to us? Thoroughly infused into Kiwi culture, being told that you’ve earned a chocolate fish is a sign you’ve done something very right!

Cookie Time Cookies


We can’t confirm, but rumour has it that Cookie Time cookies are actually one of the Cookie Monster’s favourites. And he’s a bit of a connoisseur, so we reckon he knows what he’s talking about. Jokes aside, you won’t want to miss out on a bite of a cookie with a recipe that’s so good it hasn’t been changed for over 30 years.

Jelly Tip


Jelly Tip initially intended to be a limited-edition product but it sold out within a matter of days! Thankfully Whittaker’s chocolate decided to give people what they wanted and brought it back ASAP. We understand. Raspberry jelly covered in a combination of milk and white chocolate does sound pretty incredible.
