After you’ve spent all those weeks in the beautiful country, you’re naturally going to start to think about what to bring back home.

I like to do is find unique and tasty souvenirs to bring back where you can really bring back for them to try.  It’s often much more thoughtful, delicious, and a closer “taste” of New Zealand.

#1 Whittaker’s Chocolate

Whittaker’s Chocolate is the premiere chocolate brand that’s been around since 1896 in New Zealand.  They’re a local favourite.

#2 Manuka Honey

Its natural antibacterial qualities. Without getting all science-ey here, there is a massively high concentration of the antibacterial component in the nectar of manuka flowers.

What is unique about these Tim Tams are that they’re meant to be chilled in the fridge.  The “Chill Me!” part of the packaging actually changes colour when cold.

#4 L&P

L&P stands for Lemon & Paeroa. Created in 1097, lemon juice was combined with carbonated mineral water from the town of Paeroa.

#5 Creamed Manuka

Creamed honey is basically a process to control crystallization of raw honey and results in a smooth spreadable consistency.
