Whittaker’s marks Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2021.

Porirua chocolate maker Whittaker’s marked Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2021 or this year’s Māori Language Week with a celebratory wrap for its 250g milk chocolate bar.

It’s not technically for sale, but the family-owned company created one hundred blocks for a limited release giveaway via its social media channels throughout the week.

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2021 runs from 13th to the 19th September 2021.

The new signature varietal by Australian singer Kylie Minogue.

Australian singer Kylie Minogue has released her debut Rosé Vin de France to the New Zealand market this week.

The 750ml 2020 vintage rosé launched in the UK in mid-2020 and Minogue’s five-varietal collection has now sold more than 2m bottles across 14 countries.

It will be distributed by family-owned Auckland business Hancock Merchants into New World supermarkets and can also be found online via Glengarry Wines for $21.99RRP.

Small Goods’ banana milkshake-flavoured beer.

Auckland brewer Small Goods has collaborated with New Zealand drag star Elektra Shock on a new “forbidden fruit” banana milkshake-flavoured beer.

The beer, brewed in traditional German Hefeweizen style, has a cartoon caricature of Elektra Shock, who featured on the latest season of Ru Paul’s Drag Race Down Under season, on the can.

Six-packs of the 440ml drinks at 5% ABV can be purchased for $50RRP exclusively via Beer Jerk’s online store.
