Whittaker’s Chocolate Kiwi selling fast

Whittaker’s Chocolate Kiwi selling fast

Whittaker’s Chocolate Lovers who want to celebrate Easter kiwi-style will have to get in quickly for the Whittaker’s Chocolate Kiwi. With just a week to go until Easter, sales have been very strong.

“We thought our customers would like our Chocolate Kiwi, as they have been asking for an Easter product for some time, but the response has exceeded our expectations,” said Jasmine Currie, Whittaker’s Brand Manager.

The Whittaker’s Chocolate Kiwi is a unique take on the traditional Easter bunny and egg and is Whittaker’s first hollow and foil-wrapped Easter product. It is available in 5 Roll Refined Creamy Milk or 50% Dark Chocolate in two different sizes, 75 grams and 150 grams.

Whittaker’s have partnered with Kiwis for kiwi, the national charity that aims to reverse the decline of kiwi and increase numbers by raising and distributing funds to community-led kiwi conservation projects. Twenty cents from every Whittaker’s Kiwi sold will be donated to the charity.

“While the work done on kiwi recovery over the past two decades has slowed the decline of kiwi, we still lose up to three kiwi every day. So we’re always aiming to do more, which is why it is so important for Kiwis for kiwi to have the support of sponsors such as Whittaker’s,” said Michelle Impey, Executive Director of Kiwis for kiwi.
