The Dough-licious pizza from Ben & Jerry's

Calling all foodies! Sink your teeth into these tasty tidbits from around the country.

  • If you like peanut butter, you're going to love Fix & Fogg's new hole-in-the-wall at Newmarket. Head on over to Osborne Lane for all kinds of nutty creations, including some seriously 'grammable toast that's literally dripping in PB.

  • Prepare yourselves—because Ben & Jerry's have just dropped a dessert pizza. Available exclusively instore, this epic treat combines a dreamy cookie dough base with a chunky ice cream filling and your choice of toppings (think hot fudge sauce, pretzels and brownie bites). OMG.

  • Did someone say plant-based high tea? Yes, they did, and it's happening this month at Hippopotamus as part of Wellington on a Plate (WOAP). Book your spot today and get amongst three tiers of Mother Nature's finest.

  • Build your own Ting Tong bucket over at Hot Sauce, also as part of WOAP. This infamous cocktail—popular with Thai holidaymakers—has been given an upgrade with Lighthouse Gin and Six Barrel Soda, while there's also a non-alcoholic version available.

  • Marmite Hummus—not a collab we saw coming but nonetheless, here it is. LISA's are behind this unique new dip, which pairs the much-loved flavour of their classic hummus with the unmistakable taste of Marmite.

  • Drink to a good cause with Cardrona Distillery, who have just dropped their annual 'pink' gin. $5 from every bottle—which gets its colour from being aged inside ex-pinot noir barrels—will go toward breast cancer research in NZ.

  • You should also check out Cardrona Distillery's new Rose Rabbit Butterscotch Liqueur, a beautifully sweet brew that pairs toasty, buttery notes with Cardrona Single Malt. Yummm.

  • Whittaker's are a busy bunch, releasing yet another epic block for us to try. This time round it's Berry Forest—an indulgent combo of chewy cherry-berry jubes and dark cocoa biscuit pieces, encased in their 33% Cocoa Five Roll Refined Creamy Milk Chocolate.

  • Soak up a drink or two at Coley & Punch, who are working their way through new early evening menus each and every week. Look out for $7 G&Ts, $10 cocktails and more, available from 5-7pm Wednesday through Saturday.

  • Magnum's new range of Ruby ice creams are their prettiest yet, featuring mouthwatering flavours like raspberry and blood orange covered in perfectly pink choccy—the first to combine this new chocolate with ice cream. Go on, treat yourself.

  • A product that does wonders for the mind and body, that's also vegan? Enter Beauty Brain Super Powder, a scientifically researched, plant-based formula from Jeuneora that enhances beauty, immunity and digestion and supports mental alertness and focus.

  • Beloved Kiwi cereal, Weet-Bix is turning 90. Show your support for this wheaty treat (famously eaten by Sir Edmund Hillary) and chuck one in your next smoothie, or top with fresh fruit and yoghurt for a true breakfast of champions.

Making a plan? Find out what's happening in Auckland this weekend.
