The quick reference to lolly cake might have been missed. You buy it from bakeries and its a NZ specialty. He should try that too.

They stopped making snifters a few years ago - movies have never been the same! I highly rate whittakers chocolate and if he is a fan of white chocolate I would suggest he try the L&P flavour. L&P is a local soft drink which stands for lemon and Paeroa (the town it was made in).

Pineapple lumps are sooo good. Buzz bars are also a favorite (and they do have a caramel layer) but they need to be frozen to be fully appreciated.

We always pick up a supply of Perky Nanas. Our grown up Daughter and husband always request a few too. They were on special last Oct. at Countdown, so we stocked up. Unfortunately they didn’t last long.They are available in Australia, but very expensive.
Pineapple lumps are available in Australia at Coles, Woolies etc.

Perky Nanas are on special at our pak n save - 2 for $1 - only know this because I bought a few as bribery for my team... they may be adults but they will still do anything for chocolate!

Perky nanas sound like a combination of my sons two favourite things, lolly bananas and chocolate, i think we will definetly be giving those a go.
