New Zealand road trip Tuatapere sausage sign

Now that we’ve recovered from our Vegemite taste test in Australia, we are ready to try some authentic New Zealand foods. The country is known around the word for its lamb so we decided to try a local delicacy we came across, peeled lamb tongue. Who knew lamb tongue had to be peeled?

We also tried the Kiwi version of Vegemite that is called Marmite. This one has a bit of sugar in it. Does that improve the taste? Watch the video and you decide. Add to that some lamb flavored potato chips, L&P soda, pineapple lumps, the mysteriously named Afghan cookies and of course, Kiwi fruit, and we had a veritable feast going on.
