Fig & Orange Fruit Paste
This summer, Wellington locals Rutherford and Meyer introduce a fresh new flavour to New Zealand’s favourite fruit paste line up – Fig & Orange.

Brewed by bees, Buzz Club’s premium session mead is booze, naturally brewed from native New Zealand honeys. Unlike traditional meads, Buzz Clubs capture the flavours of the native honey, but are brewed dry so they are crisp, light, and ultra-refreshing.
Their two meads each feature different native honey paired with iconic kiwi fruits. Kāmahi + Lemon and Pōhutukawa + Strawberry. Not only are they giving you a taste of our native environments through the use of native honeys, but with every 24 cans, you pollinate over 300 square meters of native forests! Now that’s the Buzz.

What’s better than a cool slice of watermelon on a hot summer’s day? A cool bottle of watermelon juice that’s what.
Aside from the sunshine feeling you get when you drink something this colour, watermelon is amazingly good for you. Not only does it score high in the hydration department, it also offers a hearty dose of the antioxidants lycopene and vitamin C which are known to help reduce inflammation and combat free radicals – which let’s be honest, are probably more of a thing at this time of year.
Pink Panther is available online for North Island delivery and from your favourite Wellington cafés and boutique grocery stores including Moore Wilson’s and Commonsense Organics.
