When people make listicles about favourite NZ foods, it’s surprising how many of them are sweets and desserts. And of a surprisingly juvenile nature.
Pineapple Lumps are one of those nostalgic foods. Chocolate covered pineapple flavoured marshmallows. Often stale. The chocolate is waxy. But I like them. Lee does not.
So when I saw limited edition Feijoa Lumps at the store the other day, it was a no-brainer to get a package. The taste of feijoa also divides the household, so there’s no danger of a conflict over scarce candy.
