What no one mentions about New Zealand is that the food there is good, really good. Yes we all know the mountains are amazing and driving around the country feels like you’re on the set of every mythical movie ever made, but that is not all this beautiful country has to offer.
New Zealand deserves to be a great tourist destination for culinary trips. Check out our list below to prove this.
1. Hokey Pokey Ice Cream
Hokey Pokey is the New Zealand term for honeycomb candy. Tip Top is the largest and most popular cream manufacturer in the country and one of their most popular flavors is the combination of persistent solid blocks with creamy vanilla cream.You can get a scoop from a dairy (a corner store) for as little as $2.
2. Fish & Chips
Whether you have them wrapped in paper while sitting on the beach or off a plate in a pub or cafe, Kiwis makes a "fush & chups" feel. New Zealand's favorite fast food, even the smallest town, has a fish shop and chips. Generally the fish served are sharks, which tastes good, but most shops now serve a choice of fish - Hoki, Gurnard and Blue Cod are all good choices. If you do not have gluten, do not fret. Many stores are now advertising gluten-free options for beating or paralyzing your fillet.
Large, plump and juicy, New Zealand oysters have earned a reputation as some of the finest in the world. Bluff is the home of oyster production in New Zealand and holds the Bluff Oyster Festival every May.

Yes, we know this is not a dish, and yes, we will cover it. Honestly, wine in New Zealand is beautiful - delicious, light, and fresh - that it should be for your own food group. You can get samples from the shops, but we recommend that you take the time to try them right from the vineyard. No matter where you are in the country, there is a winery area within reach. Find your nearest, and hunt for your most desired, and get to taste it.
6. L&P (LEMON & PAEROA)
L & P is a very popular and iconic beverage combining carbonated mineral water and lemonade and is only available in New Zealand. The drink was created in the small island town of northern Paeroa in 1907, and it is a Kiwi organization for your photography next to a giant 7m L & P bottle standing there. Whittakers even produce a taste of chocolate L & P.
