I was browsing through the Firebox online catalogue yesterday (they’ve got free shipping throughout October and November! This is a good thing 🙂 ) and spotted their whoopie pie items (cookbook and baking tin) which made me think of a kiwi food I miss:
Ginger kisses. Beautiful, beautiful ginger kisses. They’re sort of piped rounds of gingery sponge sandwiched together with a buttercream-esque filling. I guess they’re probably called kisses for the same reason as Hershey’s – that when they’re made it looks like the machine ‘kisses’ the tray, or something. We used to have them pretty often when we lived in NZ – usually bought from The Warehouse, I think – and they are definitely a food I really miss.
==> today I’d love to know …
What’s one thing from your childhood – a food, a toy, a game – that you miss? Why?
(I’ve found a promising-looking recipe for ginger kisses here; I might try making some sometime soon :))
