Population of Masterton, 25,700, population of Levin, 21,200, population of Kapiti, 49,700. How come both Levin and Masterton have independent listings and commentary on TV1's weather report, while Kapiti is lumped in with Wellington, 70 kms away and with a very different weather pattern. Previously when Kapiti WAS mentioned, the angle on the map was so skewed it was impossible to read the temperatures. All in all, we get very poor service from one news in Kapiti. I dont bother to watch any more and go to metservice on my phone, much more informative.

Whittaker’s has turned the chocolate world upside down with its new innovative new Peanut Butter and Jelly 250g Block.
Whittaker’s co-chief operating officer, Holly Whittaker, says having more than one filling in a block is a first for Whittaker’s and something a bit different from the way other chocolate flavour combinations are produced.
Recently named the Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Brand for the tenth consecutive year, Whittaker’s also celebrates its 125th anniversary this year. It will be available for a limited time only in supermarkets nationwide from Monday June 21.
Are you going to try it and are there any other flavours you would like to see combined into one block?
