    Default Pak N Save Sylvia Park

    Ok...before I write this, I know that some may deem this as a little pathetic...as I know that NZ has fabulous food...but if any from the UK are missing a little bit of home (for example I know I will have to satisfy my cravings for Minstrels and Wotsits on those odd hang over days)...these can be found at Sylvia Park Pak N Save in Auckland....just thought some may be interested in this

    Ahh Toffee Crisps I loved those!

    They were like rice crispies and caramel covered in chocolate. Yummmmmm

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    I know desperation when I hear it! Okay guys, give me a little list of what you're craving. Shellbda and I will probably be the only ones who will have room in our luggage as we are only coming for a short stay, so we shall have some room for choccies and crisps...well, I will anyway, Shellbda's luggage maybe full of rum... Toffee Crisps, Walker's Cheese & Onion, Jaffa cakes....

    I have a terrible sweet tooth myself and I noticed the last time I was over that the Cadbury's chocolate just doesn't taste the same as good old UK variety...so I shall be bringing my own supply as well!

    Oh don't get me started - can you please bring any or all of the following........Farleys Rusks, Richmond Irish recipe sausages, Bisto Gravy Granules, Oxo crisps, Lion Bars, Double Deckers, Salt 'N' Shake crisps, any Walkers crisps,..... what else?..... oh, Fry's Chocolate Delight, ..... ummmm, oh I could go on..... I know that's not all chocolate or crisps, (hell, you can't even bring some of it into the country!) but I had a wave of nostalgia creep over me then and just started naming things I miss

    Enter party-pooper stage right.

    How do we stand regarding bringing food into NZ? I know people have brought stuff in their container, but they do make a fuss when you're coming in on the plane. The first time I arrived there I had a half-eaten packet of Polo mints. I declared it and they took it off me and gave it a good scrutinising before handing it back to me.

    This link to the customs site asks

    Goods of Quarantine Interest

    Does the baggage contain:

    Food of any kind (raw or processed)
    • Animals (alive or dead) or animal products including, but not limited to: medicines, meat (fresh or dried), skins, feathers, bone, wool, eggs, cultures, shells, hair, honey, or hunting trophies, and manufactured items made from animal products including skins, ivory, and fur
    • Plants or plant products including, but not limited to: fruit, vegetables, seeds, flowers (fresh or dried), nuts, bulbs, cane, straw, bamboo, wood or wooden artifacts
    • Equipment used with animals or plants including, but not limited to: saddlery, bee-keeping equipment, things to prevent pests or disease in animals, or items associated with forests or trees
    • Used camping, garden or sporting equipment, bicycles, vehicles, soil, or water


    It doesn't say you can't bring things in, but it makes a point of wanting to know about what you bring in. I know that the food mustn't be fruit or veg and honey and other food must be in unopened packages, and shouldn't contain seeds and such things that might leap into life if they somehow come into contact with NZ soil, but is there a list somewhere of what is allowed in and what isn't?
