Made in New Zealand - not any more!
Today I bought this jar of apricot jam from the supermarket. So what, you're thinking? Has she gone completely mad? Well actually I bought it because not only is it made in NZ, but it is made from 100% fruit grown in NZ. This is indeed a rare find these days. In fact I stood and read every jam label in the jam section, they all stated that the product was made from local and imported fruit. I will be supporting Barker's by buying their apricot jam, but I think I shall have to start making all my own jams, lemon honey and marmalades, and then I only have to buy peanut butter, honey and marmite. I was also disappointed to fine all my favourite lollies, Mintees, Spearmint Imperial and Jellybeans are being made overseas now too!
Just a wee gripe! :)
