Fig and honey, gingernut, black doris plum and crème fraîche are just a few of the fantastic flavors you can taste at The Kapiti Store in Auckland, New Zealand. One of our favorite front runners is The Kapiti Store’s passionfruit and lemon curd flavor which is deliciously tart in all the right ways.
While other people may associate New Zealand with glaciers and bungy jumping, we love the country for another one of it’s icons… hokey pokey ice cream. Kiwis ingeniously combine creamy plain vanilla ice cream with generous heaps of honeycomb toffee. It’s a fabulously simple combination that hits the spot every time. One of the best places to try hokey pokey ice cream is, of course, at The Kapiti Store which is located in the awesome Hotel DeBrett‘s building. (The Hotel DeBrett is an amazing spot to stay at in Auckland by the way.)
The Kapiti Store started all the way back in 1984, when Kapiti cheese was born. Its fine dairy products led to it quickly being known as one of the lower North island’s top purveyors of New Zealand cheese.
Thankfully today Kapiti’s range of products has been extended and you can find its smooth dairy whipped into elegant desserts, amazing ice cream and even cheese layer cakes. Kapiti also has icy sorbet pops in flavors like boysenberry and blood orange and strawberry.
Swing by The Kapiti Store and we’re fairly certain you’ll be licking your bowl and tempted to try more than just one scoop.
