It’s almost as Kiwi as, “are we there yet?”
But this box has the magical ability to quell the most belligerent back seat traveller. Looking out on pohutukawas, and kowhais it delivers the tastes to match.
There’s the Lolly Scramble, the L&P slab, ginger ale, gingerbread (Kiwi-shaped), shortbread, locally-made Russian fudge and the Seriously Good Kiwiana Selection - because, as we all know, a pineapple lump is the only thing guaranteed to beat Wellington, on a good day. (You can sing along at this point…)
In these times of global uncertainty, it’s reassuring to know that Kiwis can rely on a gift that will bring back memories of endless summers, and that time when their cousin jammed their hand in the caravan door.
