Tasti invites fans to find Hemi!

Tasti invites fans to find Hemi!

Online search to find the inspiration behind iconic Kiwi company’s latest innovation

New Zealand company Tasti is calling on Kiwis to help find a fan known only as Hemi who inspired their latest range of bars.

The new range, called Tumeke Mega Nuts, is available in stores nationwide and includes three Kiwiana flavours - coconut rough, hokey pokey and choc orange. The launch was the result of a call from Hemi last year suggesting that as Tasti’s bars were "so awesome", they should change their name to Tumeke Bars and introduce a selection of Kiwiana flavours. However, Hemi didn’t leave a contact number and Tasti is keen to thank him for his inspirational idea.

Michael Tohill, Brand Manager for Tasti Products said, “We have a passionate fan base who take their treats seriously, so when we received the call from Hemi, we thought let’s make it happen. The result was the creation of the limited edition Tumeke Mega Nuts bars.

“Now we’d like to thank Hemi for his great idea, so we’ve set up the 'Chur Hemi Fund’. All we know is that he comes from ‘up north’, so we’re hoping our fans will help find him by tagging a Hemi they know on our Facebook page.”

In addition to helping find Hemi, Tasti is inviting fans to vote for their favourite Tumeke bar flavour. Fans have until the end of August to vote to bring back one of the flavours permanently. The first time that a voter connects to the competition on Facebook, Tasti will make a donation to the ‘Chur Hemi Fund’, which will then go to Hemi as a thank you for his inspiration - if the real Hemi comes forward.

“Tasti’s been around for over eighty years and we pride ourselves not only on our Kiwi heritage, but also the great products and wide range of flavours we offer.

“We hope our fans enjoy the new Kiwiana-inspired flavours. We’re looking forward to seeing how the voting goes and also to finding Hemi!” commented Michael.

Fans can vote online until the end of August 2014 at www.facebook.com/TastiNZ

The winning flavour will be on shelves permanently from early next year.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
