Cheese and petrol


Working in one of our local supermarkets means I frequently see new things on the shelves and in the fridges. I happened to see this box of cheeses that had just come out and was excited to try them. I'm not usually a blue cheese fan as I find it a bit strong but the Rotoiti Blue was really yummy. All of them were good on crackers and toast.


And thankfully petrol prices have come down here. At one point it was over $3 NZD per litre of unleaded - crazy.

I wish our petrol was 3 NZD! Up to almost equivalent of 4NZD. But I've noticed this week it has come down a little.

Fuel here seems to have dropped a bit.

That cheese looks good but not available here in either of our N W stores or Pak n Save. I see it is quite expensive, just over $40 kg. but working there I expect you get discount.

@Susan Heather, no-one in NZ gets discounts for working in a supermarket, we pay the same as everyone else but it's a nice idea.

Petrol price per litre here in my corner of the world 0.460NZD!
Luckily for us, Malaysia ranks among the top 10 nations with the cheapest gasoline prices.

How is your petrol come down and ours hasn't??> It's all so weird.

Oh boy do those cheeses look good! Have some for me too.
Our petrol prices have gone down but we don't see a reduction in ferry prices or anywhere else.

It is good to see petrol prices dropping a bit - finally! I'll have to keep an eye out for that Rotoiti Blue and try some :)

...oh boy, gas is now $3.97/gallon here!

That's something we will have to get used to bsck home. NZ makes good cheese but doesn't make all the varieties we have become used to eating in Europe. We will miss graviera, a dozen different kinds of feta, pecorino, Le Compte, genuine Stilton and all those marvelous goats cheeses we enjoy in France. The cheese eating market in NZ isn't big enough for all those varieties to be anything but 'boutique' and a really expensive treat rather than a regular part of our everyday food.

Hmmmm, cheese!
So glad I don´t have a car anymore!

This is fun. You must be able to try out a lot of new products. I'm not so adventurous with food. Thank you!
