Woohoo! Long weekend coming up… Don’t worry fellas your local supermarket still be open as normal so you can stock up for your trip to the beach, bach or boat!
What an awesome region we live in… Nelson shines with its wonderful beaches, coast lines, forests and national parks. Whether you enjoy hiking, kayaking, boating or biking, there’s always something to do. Of course you’ll need to fuel up for the outdoors but lucky for you, your truly local supermarket, Fresh Choice Nelson, can help you out with a local feast! Here are our suggestions for a picnic hamper that’s going to pack a punch!
Pic’s Peanut Butter and Apple Sandwiches
Pick up some freshly baked bread from your local supermarket’s bakery (that’s us!) Slice (thickly) and spread liberally with Pic’s crunchy or smooth peanut butter. Slice an apple thinly, pick some locally grown beauties from our produce department. Layer the apple on top of the peanut butter and sandwich your bread together. Beautiful! The tartness of the apple goes well with the peanut butter, and these babies will give you energy!
These outstanding crisps really do live up to their name, they’re the “Proper” job! Four flavours of potato crisps to choose from, and if you feel like stepping out in veggie style we’ve got Proper Parsnip and Proper Kumara Crisps too!
Cheese (and Crackers) to snack on from Wangapeka Family Dairy
Crafted on a Family Farm, in the heart of the beautiful Wangapeka Valley, Nelson, these delicious quality Artisan Cheeses will fill your pack with some added protein.
Something to quench your thirst…
- Grab a pack of Pete’s Lemonade. Four flavours and all natural!
- Or to fuel your body, don’t go past CHIA.
All of these local heros, and so many more, are available at your local supermarket, Fresh Choice Nelson. So celebrate Nelson Anniversary Day in style, support local and enjoy!
