Most of you kids are probably too young to remember K Bars. They were one of New Zealand’s iconic lollies from the 1950’s. The Whittakers toffee came in 6 fantastic jaw-breaking, teeth snapping flavours.
Well, Whittaker’s has brought the K Bar back. Its newest creation is a mix of K Bar and chocolate.
The much-hyped chocolate bars come in three different flavours: milk chocolate with lime K Bar filling, milk chocolate with pineapple K Bar filling and 72 percent dark Ghana chocolate with raspberry K Bar filling.
Whittaker’s has even opened a ‘pop up’ shop in Wellington to celebrate its creation.
As a throwback to the K Bar’s 1950s origins, the pop-up store has been fitted out to look like an old-school milk bar.
The store is white with plenty of bright neon colours themed to the K-bar flavours. The staff are also dressed in the 1950’s theme, wearing pink dresses, pink headbands and white, frilly aprons.
The shop is selling the chocolate bars, some limited edition merchandise like t-shirts and tea towels and K Bar themed cupcakes, milkshakes and truffles.
