Curious ways with food

Inject it – Mister D, 47 Tennyson Street, Napier
Mister D are the pioneers of the DIY doughnut. Served warm, the doughnuts are covered in sugar and cinnamon, and come with a side syringe of custard, jelly or chocolate. They’re capital D’licious.

Unbake it – The Little Bird UnBakery, 385 New North Road, Kingsland
The Little Bird Unbakery in Auckland keeps it cool with their raw, organic and sugar free menu. Nothing is heated above 46°C, including the coffee. Being sugar free doesn’t mean a lack of treats in the cabinet – cheesecakes, chocolate cakes and tasty coconut filled slices are unbaked in the kitchen. Raw power to you!

Frame it – Jelly Bean Store & Gallery, Skyline Rotorua
Over 14,000 Jelly Belly jelly beans were used to create Harry Potter at the Jelly Bean Store & Gallery. You can’t take a piece of Harry home with you but you can fill a box with some curious flavoured jelly beans like buttered popcorn, chocolate pudding, and candy floss.

  1. Napier is a gorgeous town and the art deco architecture really deserves a mention in your posts. The town was completely flattened by an earthquake in 1931 so most of the town was rebuilt in the 1930’s – the art deco period. Napier is now known as the art deco capital of the world and anyone interested in architecture will love it. It’s good to know there is also good food, good Napier hotels and plenty of other things to do in Napier.

    • Hi, you’re right, Art Deco Napier deserves a mention and it’s on my list for when we return in a couple of months. It’s impressive how quickly (and beautifully) Napier was rebuilt after the 1931 earthquake and I’m looking forward to walking the streets with my camera. Thanks for your comments, Rachael
