The traditional double-scoop chocolate-dipped icecream
Some things are worth travelling for. And some things you get nostalgic for even though they’re actually pretty dreadful.
Some foodstuffs that Jake and I have consumed since arriving back in New Zealand:
Kumara; service station Big Ben steak-and-cheese pie; McDonalds KiwiBurger (yes, I’m the worst vegetarian in the world); Chocolate-dipped icecream (one scoop of boysenberry ripple, one of bananaberry); terakihi; Whittaker’s Peanut Slabs; Vogels toast; Hubbards cereal; Griffins Gingernuts; Atomic Coffee; Monteiths; Steinlager and an assortment of local wines.
Ponsonby Pies has closed down (!) and I’m yet to get near a decent creaming soda thickshake, a bottle of L&P or a packet of toffee pops. There’s still time. Other suggestions, fellow ex-pats?
