Nestlé brings an international flavour to its chocolate and coffee portfolios, while local brands Wellington Chocolate Factory and Six Barrel Soda look closer to home for inspiration.

A popular product from Nestlé’s international portfolio has hit New Zealand shores.

KitKat Chunky with Lotus Biscoff combines the oven-baked wafer finger of KitKat Chunky with the beloved caramelised biscuit spread of Lotus Biscoff.

The new bar is now available to purchase in a 41.5g bar with an RRP $1.89 at supermarkets and convenience retailers nationally.

A second launch from Nestlé this week, this time under its Nespresso coffee brand.

The multinational has added four new flavours to its Nespresso’s World Explorations coffee pod range, comprising Paris Espresso, Istanbul Espresso, Rio de Janeiro Espresso, and the Limited-Edition Miami Espresso.

Available at Nespresso Boutique shops and online priced at $9.50 per sleeve, with Limited-Edition Miami Espresso priced at $14.00.

Another Matariki-inspired product, following Lewis Road Creamery’s Matariki-inspired milk last week.

Wellington Chocolate Factory’s new Kawakawa Dark Chocolate bar was created especially to acknowledge Aotearoa’s first public holiday to celebrate Matariki.

Wellington visual artist Xoë Hall (Kāi Tahu) designed the bar’s wrapper, taking inspiration from Te Kāhui whetū ō Matariki, and each bar is adorned with the nine stars of the celestial cluster marking the Māori New Year.

The 75g bar is available for sale online at WCF, Commonsense Organics, Moore Wilson’s and Farro Fresh for $12.50.

And WCF isn’t the only F&B company from the capital tapping into indigenous ingredients.

Kiwifruit & Kawakawa is the latest exclusive syrup flavour by Six Barrel Soda in collaboration with Zealandia Te Māra a Tāne.   

The limited-edition flavour is a nod to the kiwi that roam Zealandia and the rich plant life regenerating in the sanctuary. For each purchase, Six Barrel Soda will donate $1 to support Zealandia’s conservation efforts to help birds, plants and critters thrive in Wellington and beyond.
