One of my favorite things about traveling is getting to try foods that are not available in here the states....especially candy and snack foods! When my sister, boyfriend and I were in NZ two years ago we got to try many different types of candy. We developed a major love for Crunchy Bars, Hokey Pokey ice Cream, and my favorite, gummy snakes! We also tried chicken flavored chips and that staple...Vegimite (not bad, if a bit salty) What are some of your favorite NZ based candy's or snackes?

Hmmm...I don't think I've ever had a "time out" bar. I'll have to see if there are some around here.

Definately Crunchie Bars. Cadbury chocolate tasted different (better actually) in New Zealand.

Hi Twilight021, Nut Roll is my favourite and has been since I was a wee girl...They don't make it anymore!...boo hoo!!!...Nut Roll is a roll of nougat, covered in chococlate, caramel and nuts!...It was my favourite...I was surprised to learn you tried Hokey Pokey Ice Cream and Crunchie bars, as I always thought those bars were sold worldwide!...I hope your trip here was a joyous one for you and your family...Ka Kite...Take care!
