There is a Kiwi firm called Whittakers that makes just about the best chocolate in the country. They also make other sweets, one sort being a candy bar known as a K bar. K bars are yum, and have been around forever. Pretty much everyone my age remembers them from childhood. Anyhow, Whittakers just recently launched a type of chocolate bar with K bar flavoured centres.

The chocolate is actually very nice, however I can't help but think a bit more thought could have gone into the display stands.laugh I took this photo at the local Warehouse store on the weekend.



If they had just made the stands one or two blocks wider. At least it was in the food section, and wasn't by the white bed sheets.laugh

I went to the Chocolate Museum in Bruges, Belgium, about five years ago. It's has a few large chocolate sculptures. One of them was a life-sized Barack Obama (it was the only sculpture of a person).

It was meant as a accolade, and (to me) not racist per se, but I could only shake my head at the typical European cluelessness.

Edit: and speaking of typical cluelessness (at least I hope that's the explanation), I have been to a Iowa small town breakfast place called the Koffee Kup Kafe. The graphics on their sign are unfortunate.

I think that is just New Zealand. Most decent choc will be expensive there.

I don't know about your chocolate but I do know that you have the best
rugby football team in the world who are universally known as the
'ALL BLACKS' because of the all black uniform kit they wear.

I'm a volunteer for the Tournament of Roses. They call us "White Suiters", which makes us sound like plantation owners coming a-courtin'.
