For the first time ever, Whittaker’s introduces two delicious assortments to their permanent range, providing a local alternative to other chocolate assortments, just in time for Christmas!

The premium Whittaker’s Artisan Squares assortment features six of the delicious Artisan Collection flavours in individually wrapped delicate squares. The Minimix assortment features five of Whittaker’s most iconic Mini Slab flavours.

Holly Whittaker, Whittaker’s Marketing Manager, says that Whittaker’s is delighted to offer these new assortments.

“The Whittaker’s Artisan Squares assortment showcases the finest New Zealand ingredients and there’s something for everyone, with Milk, White and Dark Chocolate options included. The unique flavour combinations paired with quality Whittaker’s Chocolate in refined chocolate squares makes for a classy gift or a decadent way to treat yourself.

“The Whittaker’s Minimix is the classic gift or treat for families to share, with a mix of our most loved, uniquely Kiwi Mini Slab flavours. While we’ve made Mini Slabs of these flavours for some time, what’s new is this opportunity to buy an assortment of them, which means everyone can pick their favourite from one share pack, or maybe try something new,” said Holly.

Whittaker’s has new machinery, installed at its one factory in Porirua, which enables packaging of assorted products on the production line for the first time in Whittaker’s 122-year history.

“The investment in this new equipment reflects Whittaker’s ongoing commitment to innovation and to maintaining quality by controlling the whole manufacturing process, from bean to bar. It also demonstrates the value we place on feedback from our Whittaker’s Chocolate Lovers, who’ve been asking us for some time to produce products designed for gifting,” said Holly

In the lead-up to Christmas, family-owned Whittaker’s will be adding to the festive excitement with some live-gifting events hosted on Instagram.

The Whittaker’s Artisan Squares and Minimix assortments will be available in most major retailers including Pak n Save, New World and The Warehouse from 15 October.
