A little while ago, the folks at Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit asked me to try out their new SunGold Kiwifruit. “What the heck?,” I thought to myself. I don’t often review products, but I am partial to a bit of kiwifruit every now and again, so thought I’d give it a whirl.
The SunGold Kiwifruit have a smooth skin and yellow flesh. They’re said to be nature’s multivitamin, rich in vitamin C and also with folic acid, fibre, potassium, iron, Vitamin E and other antioxidants. They’re also low in calories.
But putting the science aside, I really love the taste. To me, green kiwifruit has a floral taste with quite a bit of tartness. But these little gems have a beautiful, smooth honey taste with no hint of tartness. That was enough to reel me in.
The kids love them because you can use a spoon to scoop out the flesh, making them handy for the lunchbox or a great for a quick after-school snack.
Wins and grins all round!
The SunGold Kiwifruit can be purchased in Australia from major supermarkets and selected greengrocers.
Agents of Zespri provided me with a Woolworths voucher to buy the Kiwifruit at my local store. All opinions are my own.
