Great news for Kiwis, Hey Pesto on the ground floor of building 1 at Emaar Square, (the office blocks next to Dubai Mall) sells real 'Made in New Zealand' style hokey pokey ice cream! Its there for eating in or taking away. True to memory there was creamy vanilla icecream with reasonable sized pieces of crunchy toffee - at 16 dirhams per scoop its not cheap, but what the heck. I owe this great discovery to an Australian (can you believe it, but thanks Maree).
There's been an article in the NZ Herald about hokey pokey, apparently its available in different flavours now.
