It’s October favourite finds time and funnily enough they are all kiwi related! I didn’t do much shopping while I was over there (plenty of eating though!) but I did come home with a few goodies. I’d love to hear about your October favourite finds as well!
Fix & Fogg Peanut Butter
Fix & Fogg peanut butter is made down a little laneway in Wellington, and whilst I didn’t make it to the actual store (they were closed while I was in town) I did pick up some to bring home anyway! The smoke and fire version was for some friends that looked after my place while I was away, but I tried it and it sure is delicious. Super smokey with a nice kick at the end – so good.
The honey version is for me, and I’ve been loving adding it to smoothies and eating it with bananas since I got back. I want to bake with it as well, but I also don’t want to use it too quickly – such a dilemma! Thankfully you can buy it online here in Australia – along with their dark chocolate version, as well as smooth & crunchy. Get your hands on some!
I definitely don’t buy cutesy decorations for my apartment when I travel anymore, but when I spotted these super cute bird coasters at a market I couldn’t resist them. I love that they add a little colour to my coffee table whilst still being useful. So far I keep changing my mind about which one is my favourite – obviously I have a soft spot for the kiwi but I think right now the Tui is winning out!
New Zealand Chocolate
The range of Whittaker’s chocolate available in New Zealand is vastly superior to that here in Australia, so I was requested to bring a supply back for my office. The collection below isn’t even all of it! The L&P flavour is a perennial favourite but the Pear & Manuka Honey was particularly well received too. I’m not even that much of a chocolate eater, but maybe if these flavours were available here I would be!
Cheese Board and Servers
I was lucky enough to get a belated birthday present from my aunt & uncle while in New Zealand, and even luckier that it was this gorgeous cheese board and servers! The servers in particular are absolute gorgeous, they’re almost too nice to use! After all these goodies I had a slightly heavier suitcase on the way home, that’s for sure!
