To mark the arrival of the warmer months in style, Scorched Almonds has unveiled a collection of new special edition packs featuring iconic summer scenes of New Zealand.
A classic gift in its own right, the four collectable Scorched Almonds designs feature art by celebrated New Zealand artist, Tony Ogle, to bring something new and uniquely Kiwi to the gifting season.
Inside, each pack contains the much-loved treat; creamy chocolate, combined with roasted whole almonds.
The works were hand-picked to showcase the natural beauty of the country and make a perfect gift for a loved one this year. Of course, you can always choose your favourite design and keep it for yourself!
The chosen art includes Coastal Carnival, a colourful celebration of 60s beach culture; Hahei Pathways, a picturesque image of Coromandel living, complete with the kiwi bach and flowering Pohutakawa; Te Pahi, a secluded crescent beach south of the Bay of Islands; and Wainui Waves, a look into the surfers view of Gisborne’s Wainui Beach.
Nestlé Head of Marketing Fraser Shrimpton said the collection grew from the desire to capture the essence of New Zealand, something the team instantly found in Tony Ogle’s art.
“We love being the go-to gift, whether it be for teachers ahead of the school holidays, for a friend when you want to say thank you, or the office Secret Santa and everything else in between. This year, we wanted to do something a little different to make the gift of Scorched Almonds even more special.”
“The art on these four new designs offer a slice of what this country is all about, something to be celebrated. We think they look stunning, but they won’t be around forever, so get your hands on them quick!”, said Fraser.
The Limited-Edition Scorched Almonds Summer Collection 400g packs are on shelf in Countdown and New World supermarkets for $11.
