Whittaker’s latest classic Kiwi combo

Whittaker’s latest classic Kiwi combo – limited edition Jelly Tip block

Whittaker’s limited edition Jelly Tip 250g block will be on shelves around New Zealand from July. As well as teaming-up with another iconic Kiwi favourite, the Jelly Tip block is also the first time Whittaker’s has ever made a product using two types of chocolate.

Jelly Tip-flavoured jelly, made by Whittaker’s using natural colour and flavour, is encased in vanilla ice cream-flavoured Whittaker’s white chocolate on a 5 Roll Refined Creamy Milk chocolate base. This gives the authentic flavour of Tip Top’s classic Kiwi ice cream combined with Whittaker’s hallmark top quality chocolate.

Whittaker’s Marketing Manager, Holly Whittaker said, “Whittaker’s Jelly Tip block is a fun and unique product that we’re very excited about. True to form, we’ve ensured all its ingredients are of the highest quality. Whittaker’s is the only major chocolate maker in New Zealand that ensures quality by controlling the manufacturing process – from bean to block – and this block is no different.

“We think Whittaker’s Jelly Tip block is a fitting tribute to the Jelly Tip ice cream which, like Whittaker’s chocolate, has been loved by New Zealanders for decades.

“The Jelly Tip block’s combination of our super smooth 5 Roll Refined Creamy Milk chocolate with Jelly Tip-flavoured jelly and vanilla ice cream white chocolate is a special, limited edition treat. Curious chocolate lovers may need to get in quick to taste our latest classic Kiwi combo.”

Whittaker’s has previously entered into partnerships with brands with which it shares synergies as iconic Kiwi favourites, including L&P for Whittaker’s L&P chocolate range and Griffin’s for Whittaker’s Hundreds and Thousands block.

More recently, Whittaker’s partnered with a range of New Zealand and Pacific artisan producers to create its New Zealand Artisan Collection.

“As a proud New Zealand-owned company we love teaming up with quality producers and other iconic Kiwi brands to provide our customers with new and innovative flavours.” said Ms Whittaker.
