Taste quality and natural goodness with New Zealand apples
Blessed to grow in a land of pure water and fertile land, New Zealand apples are renowned for their unbeatable taste and will do more than keep the doctor away.

Madagascar – the two homes of the world’s finest beans. These beans are then batch roasted and made into fine grade chocolate, thus differentiating them from other competitors who often purchase cocoa liquor rather than roasting their own beans.


Dark chocolate indulgers can look forward to two of Whittaker’s’ new artisanal varieties. The Fijian Ginger and Kerikeri Mandarin is a rich 62% dark chocolate infused with mandarin from the famed citrus growers of New Zealand’s Keri keri, paired with luscious, crystalized ginger hand is cultivated in the islands of the world’s finest ginger producer, Fiji.

These delectable Whittaker’s mini chocolate slabs are made using 33% cocoa.


Griffin’s
