I have not been to New Zealand but I am a huge fans of New Zealand food. Talking about high quality diary products, smooth and delicious chocolates, fresh food like kiwis and apples, and many more.
When I got to know that Taste New Zealand Food Fair is back at my favourite grocery, Jaya Grocer, I was really anticipated to find out more about it. Hence, I have participated the special bloggers-only Speed Shopping with ‘Taste of New Zealand’ at Jaya Grocer game event at Jaya Grocer, The Starling Mall on last Saturday morning.
It was my first time visiting Jaya Grocer @ The Starling Mall, located at Level B1, the outlet is really huge and with a lot of selections. We were separated into a group of 2 and given 2 tasks to complete.
The first game was to find out the New Zealand products in 10 minutes, and the second game was to find Griffin's bear as much as we could in 1 minute. It was exciting, fun and great games to start the day. Fish and I teamed up and we won the first runner up in the New Zealand food hunt game, great team work my mate!

All Natural New Zealand Ice-cream & Yoghurt

The Collective takes pride in its all-natural, vegetarian, gluten-free goodness which guarantees no added nasties.

Taste quality and natural goodness with New Zealand apples
Blessed to grow in a land of pure water and fertile land, New Zealand apples are renowned for their unbeatable taste and will do more than keep the doctor away.
Luv’ya Fruit grows apples in their own orchards right in the sunny, temperate region at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. Known for being mildly sweet and with a subtle pear essence, the Ambrosia apples have crisp, fine-grained flesh that remain white even when sliced. As the name ‘Ambrosia’ means “Food of the Gods’, customers will attest to it’s out-of-the-world juiciness.
Rockit™ Apple Snacks have also recently returned to popular Malaysian retailers. Rockit™ is the world’s first specially bred miniature ‘high quality’ apple, positioned as a health snack and has a delicious sweet flavour, bright red colour and a juicy, crisp crunch.
Top quality chocolates and biscuits
Founded in 1896 by James Henry Whittaker, New Zealand’s primary chocolate brand, Whittaker’s sources for top quality, hand-harvested cocoa from Ghana and Madagascar – the two homes of the world’s finest beans. These beans are then batch roasted and made into fine grade chocolate, thus differentiating them from other competitors who often purchase cocoa liquor rather than roasting their own beans.
Dark chocolate indulgers can look forward to two of Whittaker’s’ new artisanal varieties. The Fijian Ginger and Kerikeri Mandarin is a rich 62% dark chocolate infused with mandarin from the famed citrus growers of New Zealand’s Keri keri, paired with luscious, crystalized ginger hand is cultivated in the islands of the world’s finest ginger producer, Fiji.
There will also be limited edition Sharebags – Whittaker’s Tweats comprises of 12 mini slabs of creamy milk chocolate with popping candy, specifically moulded in the shapes of some of our favourite New Zealand native creatures such as the Kiwi and Moa bird, the forest-dwelling Morepork owl, the lizard-resembling Tuatara, owl-parrot Kakapo and a Penguin! These delectable Whittaker’s mini chocolate slabs are made using 33% cocoa.
New Zealand’s No. 1 Biscuit brand has also finally set food in Malaysia. Griffin’s, New Zealand’s favourite biscuit bakers have been delighting Kiwi families for more than 150 years. They are armed with its heritage of expertly baking biscuits with top quality ingredients and utmost craft and care. Malaysians can now experience its delicious biscuits made with real New Zealand milk and milk chocolate.
