Holy smokes, I Live in New Zealand.

Things I Miss.

I have cravings for things that I will just have to ignore because it is so hard to import food into this country.  This is a comprehensive list of those items, each of which I cannot find here or cannot find easily (as in, a convenience store, called a “dairy” here, MIGHT stock it).

  • Root beer
  • Good corn chips (everything here is salted or cheese flavoured)
  • Robert Simpson Confederation Ale (I cannot believe it, but it’s true)
  • In ‘N Out Pita
  • IGA/Foodland sandwiches

Enjoy these for me, for I cannot.  And thus ends my exposé on food in New Zealand.
