Where To Find All The Food You Miss From New Zealand

Everyone knows that if you move away from your home country, the thing you miss most is the food you grew up with (well maybe it's family, but that's debatable). So whether you’re from the States and need a big bowl of comfort cereal or you're a kiwi and need some pineapple lumps in your life, we've got all your cravings covered! 

Here's where to find all the foods you miss from home.  

New Zealand

The Kiwi Shop | Joondalup, Maddington And Port Kennedy

Next time you're desperate for a bag of Pineapple Lumps or a can of L&P, head to The Kiwi Shop to get your fix. If you can think of a food from NZ, chances are you'll be able to find it here—Rashuns, Pinky Bars, Moro Bars, Feijoa Fresh Up, Fruitli Fingers, Hokey Pokey Squiggles and so much more! 

Kiwi Shop | Online

Missing your good old Kiwi onion dip? Well, the online Kiwi Shop has got the goods—Nestle reduced cream and Maggi onion soup mix—so you can make it in Oz. They've also got Cookie Time cookies, Whittakers chocolate (all of the peanut slab), Bluebird chips and basically everything else you could ever want. 


Best Of British | Joondalup

Hold on to your tea cups chaps, this place has everything a Brit could ever need! From Jammie Dodgers to PG tea bags, Best of British will sort you out. They also sell Maltesers chocolate spread, and while we're not sure if this is technically British, quite frankly we don't care.


The Irish Shop | Online 

All you Irish folk calling Perth home must have just found a bunch of four-leaf clovers because it’s your lucky day. You can get your Barry's Tea and Tayto chips fix from the The Irish Shop, but you can also get Irish sausages, bacon, black pudding and even Kerrygold butter! 

South Africa

Cape To Cairo | Various Locations

Whether you're craving some biltong or need a Cape Cookie in your life ASAP, Cape to Cairo has you and your stomach sorted. With multiple locations throughout WA, it's easy to get your fix!

Springbok Foods | Online

From tinned fruit straight from South Africa to cereals worthy of getting out of bed, Springbok Foods is waiting to fulfil your every food need! So start clicking and get ready to bring a little bit of SA to Perth!


50States American FoodMart | Perth CBD And Cannington

50States is a place where dreams come true. Filled to the brim with Cinnabon cereal (OMG), dill pickle Pringles, grape flavoured Fanta, red velvet Oreos and Reese's galore, it's a dentist's worst nightmare.


O’Canada | Online

Online only yes, but so worth the wait for delivery (think of it like Christmas for your stomach!) Stocking Maynard’s products, Reese's cereal, Hershey's Chipits (the best baking chips known to man) and Aunt Jemima pancake mix, O'Canada has everything a good Canuck could want. Eh?


Elmars | Highgate, Myaree And The Swan Valley

Is there anything better than a good German sausage? Elmar's stocks top quality smallgoods like smoked sausages, ham and salami, but they also have plenty of European delights like rye bread, Danish cheese, Belgian chocolate and more!

The German Shop | Online

Stocking bonbons, chocolate wafers, vanilla bourbon dessert sauce and instant puddings, this online German Shop will sort out your sweets cravings. They also stock savoury goods like crispbreads and fried herring, if you're into that. 


Ikea | Osborne Park

Swedish meatballs aside, Ikea also sells some take home Swedish goodies. So next time you’re there grabbing a build-your-own table make sure to swing by the food sections and pick up some Swedish chocolate and butterscotch cake or sparkling pear cider.


The Re Store | Leederville and Northbridge

It doesn't really matter where you hail from, there's nobody in Perth who doesn't love The Re Store. With fresh pasta galore, so much cheese, gourmet chocolates and a liquor selection to die for, it's no wonder we spend so much time here.


The Dutch Shop Perth | Guildford

The people of Netherlands know their food, and man do they have some tasty treats (caramel spread on toast anyone?). The Dutch Shop has all the goodies you could ask for, so grab some Lotus spread and gingerbread pancake mix and thank us later!


Fun Work’s Lolly Shop | Morley

Fun Work's stocks sweet treats from America, The UK, New Zealand, The Netherlands and Mexico! They sell Pineapple Lumps in bulk, Perky Nanas, more Pop Tarts varieties than you can poke a stick at as well as BabyRuths, Junior Mints, Twizzlers, Daim Bar and Yorkies. And that's really just the tip of the iceberg.
