Hapi Wasabi Peas are very very yummy (although quite expensive – £4.50 a can…)

They’re not super hot but have a definite wasabi kick, just enough to be totally addictive :)

MMMMmmmmmmm…… Munchie munchie XXXXXX

NZ kicks UK’s ass #2: Watties’ Ketchup

November 27, 2009

You know those people who say that Heinz Ketchup is the best, the one and only? They know squat. The taste of cheap vinegar somehow comforts them. We’re better than that.

This shit is expensive, about £4.95 per bottle (compared with about NZ$3 domestic pricing). Some people get visitors to the UK to pack their hold luggage with this stuff, it’s THAT sought after.

Available at Jumbuck’s Cafe or the New Zealand shop . I’d recommend a trip to Jumbuck’s, the staff are friendly and the thin crust pies are delish.

NZ kicks UK’s ass #1: Marmite


I always thought that Marmite was a UK invention and a brand, a love-it-or-hate-it concoction quintessentially British.

Yet again this dull little island needs to realise that things made outside of the UK are so much better….

Produced in New Zealand, Sanitarium Marmite looks like UK Marmite, tastes like the soy sauce spread I’ve been craving for all my life.

Stupidly expensive to get in London (upwards of £3.95 per jar),  it has none of the yeasty aftertaste of UK Marmite and actually tastes awesome. On toast, fresh bread, with cheese on toast…. mmm…..

Available in London from the Jumbucks Cafe on Shepherds Bush Green or the New Zealand shop (who also do mail order).
