Kiwi favourite Whittaker’s has announced the release of a permanent ice-cream range. The Wellington-based chocolate manufacturers have teamed up with Tip Top to create three flavours: Vanilla and Cashew Praline, Coffee and Cacao and Chocolate Pretzel.

Established 120 years ago, Whittaker’s marketing manager says they are constantly working on new brand collaborations. With ice-cream popular among Kiwis, who consume approximately 23 litres a year, this new business venture was a no-brainer.

To celebrate the launch there will be two pop-up stores handing out free samples. The Auckland pop-up will be based in Newmarket on September 22nd before moving down to Lambton Quay in Wellington on September 27th.

All three flavours will be available to purchase from your local supermarket on Monday.
