Whittaker's just revealed its new tropical flavoured block - a twist on sticky rice dessert

And it's already been added to the permanent lineup

If you're a lover of caramelised white choc, chances are you're gonna be a fan of Whittaker’s new tropical block.

Inspired by mango sticky rice pudding, the Mango & Coconut Block is just as it sounds. Packed with chewy mango chunks and toasted coconut. 

Whittaker’s Chief Marketing Officer, Soraya Cottin, says the new flavour is so delicious the team feel “it deserves a permanent spot” in their lineup.

“We hope chocolate lovers enjoy this little taste of the tropics as summer comes to an end,” Soraya added.

I’m already dreaming of a beach getaway, so we’ll have to see if a square or two of choccy fills the void.

We've been eagerly awaiting a new flavour since the Whittaker’s Chocolate Lovers Facebook page teased us with “something new is on the horizon” last week.

Posting a picture of a lone mango appearing in a sunrise, we knew we were in for some sort of tropical treat. 

Kiwi fans made their best guess with some wondering whether it may be a mix of passionfruit or pineapple. 

With the trend of pineapple-flavoured squiggles and choccy milk rising in NZ snacks, I was pleasantly surprised to know that it hadn’t made its way into yet another of my favourite treats. 

Mango and coconut on the other hand we’re so incredibly here for. 

“Woo Hoo a yummy mango flavour soon! 🎉🎉🎉🥭🥭🥭,” one fan wrote on the teaser.

Another said: “Mango, coconut and chocolate. Sounds perfect for me!”

While a third doesn’t have to worry any longer after saying: “Please be mango and white choc! We need more white chocolate flavours! Don't be scared 😅.”

Whittaker’s new Mango & Coconut Block will be available in stores up and down the country from Monday 22nd April.
