Trying the local cuisine is part of what makes traveling abroad so intriguing and unique! Everyone needs to eat, so why not try some of New Zealand’s most famous foods while you’re there? We’ve put together a list of the most unique foods you must try during your trip. 

CRAYFISH 

Crayfish, which is also known as lobster, is Kiwi favorite because many fishermen can catch them themselves. This delicacy can be on the pricy side but it is definitely worth trying if the opportunity presents itself! 

HOKEY POKEY ICE CREAM 

If there is one flavor of ice cream that you try in New Zealand, make sure it is Hokey Pokey! Caramelized honeycomb is what makes this Kiwi treat a local favorite. 

KIWI BURGER 

Between two burger buns you can find beetroot and fried egg along with your standard burger patty and all the typical burger fixings. Don’t knock it until you try it! 

JAFFAS 

So much sweet! Jaffas are small sugar-coated chocolate balls with an orange flavor to them.  Once a year, you can enter a “Jaffa Race” in Dunedin where the candy is rolled down the steepest residential street in the world, Baldwin Street.  

KINA 

It’s no secret that New Zealanders love their seafood. Kina is the local name for a type of sea urchin with a hard, spiky outer shell and thin, fleshy (edible) inside. This foodie delight has been a New Zealand delicacy for centuries.
