Don't Miss

Hokey pokey ice cream

You may have treated yourself to Hokey pokey ice cream before, but did you know it originated in New Zealand? You’ll have the chance on this holiday to buy a cone or two. It consists of plain vanilla ice cream with small, solid lumps of honeycomb toffee. (Hokey pokey is a New Zealand term for honeycomb toffee.) The original recipe consisted of solid toffee until around 1980, but in a marketing change Tip-Top decided to use small balls of honeycomb toffee instead. Hokey pokey was a slang term for ice cream in general in the 19th and early 20th centuries in several areas, including New York and parts of Great Britain, specifically for the ice cream sold by street vendors, or ‘hokey-pokey’ men. In New Zealand it’s the most popular flavour after plain vanilla and a standard example of Kiwiana, which are items and icons from New Zealand's heritage, quirky things that contribute to a sense of nationhood.
