Dodge the treats or ditch the dosh on ANZ's online game

For those who waste their pay cheque on things like shoes or coffee, beer and other consumables this ANZ online game will see you doing your best to stay on track (in the digital world), mainly because of the lure of the potential win of $5,000

To play the game, your character must dodge coffee, beer, cupcakes, restaurants and cafes on Temptation Lane, but make sure it collects all the coins that go past.

Our journalist failed pretty miserably on each attempt, which is probably a realistic representation of her saving ability.

Each week there are 25 spot prizes of $25 given away and each player with a high score has the chance to win $5,000.

A microsite has been created for the game and at the bottom of the page is a link for visitors to find out more about ANZs serious saver account.

Whittaker's divides the court of public opinion – but all for a good cause

On Monday, Whittaker’s launched its latest novelty chocolate-lolly mash up with a chocolatey answer to retro bakesale treat coconut ice. The Coconut Ice Surprise chocolate has a twist though, 20c from each block goes to Plunket – a charity which New Zealanders agree is a worthy cause. However, to relate the chocolate to the charity, Whittaker's has built the campaign around baby gender reveal parties, causing a backlash from the public who argue gender norms have expanded beyond blue for boys and pink for girls.
