Appetising tacos sit waiting to be demolished.

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

  • Flying Burrito Brothers' Albany branch is turning six, and what better way to celebrate than with $6 tacos—and $6 beers. Head along between Friday and Sunday to make the most of this mouthwatering deal.

  • Bottoms up, Grassene have released a range of sparkling sodas inspired by the health benefits of cannabis. Available in two unique flavous, Good Herb Sodas contain botanical 'terpenes' that are designed to help you unwind, or zone-in... Yip, we're intrigued.

  • Celebrate America's national holiday with one of their most famous exports—the doughnut. Doughnut Haus have you sorted with their limited edition 4th July packs, featuring four patriotic flavours—Boston creme, pecan pie, Bananas Foster and red velvet. Here for a good time, not a long time.

  • Dry July got you down? Never fear, Lyre's is here with their range of award-winning drinks that mimic the world's most popular spirits—minus the alcohol. Think Amaretti, Orange Sec and even Absinthe, available from selected supermarkets and liquor stores.

  • MILO has gone plant-based. The iconic drink now comes in a dairy-free version that tastes just like the original and which you'll find alongside another new product, MILO XTRA—packed with more protein, more crunch, and more of that famous choccy flavour.

  • Make your next cuppa a guilt-free one thanks to Maggio. Their coffee pods are the most environmentally-friendly on the market, taking just 84 days to decompose (compared with the 500 years some others reportedly take!). Available from selected supermarkets.

  • Allpress is helping SurfAid celebrate their 20th birthday with a brand new coffee blend. Named Galaxy, this not-for-profit roast—made from Sumatran beans—is their way of honouring the organisation, who help improve the lives of people living in isolated parts of Indonesia through surfing.

  • Cosy up with a winter's meal at Café Hanoi. Tuck into belly-warming dishes like beef short rib with toasted bahn mi, and a Vietnamese coffee pot de crème with five-spice macaron—all part of their updated menu.

  • Dark chocolate fans, prepare to flip—because Whittaker's have just dropped a new range and it's INTENSE. Their darkest choccy to date, the Cocoa Lovers Collection comprises four 100g blocks, including a very decadent 92% cocoa offering. Get amongst.

  • The hunt is on for the country's tastiest toasted sandwich. Cook & Nelson and McClure’s Pickles are teaming up for The Great NZ Toastie Takeover, whereby eateries across the nation will put up their very best version of the treat. Here's where to find 'em.

  • Nut butter just got a whole lot better thanks to Chantal Organics. They've released two indulgent spreads that'll go down a treat on that next piece of toast—Organic Salted Caramel Peanut Butter, and Organic Cinnamon Spiced Almond Butter with Chia and Hemp.
