What's black and sticky?



One of the smart things about Pak 'n' Save's proposition is that it isn't really based on price, it's based on value. And that was proven recently when it was judged to be the best value brand in the country.

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.
