Default chocolates -duty free

I know that foodstuffs cannot be brought into NZ - meat etc.

Does that mean all food cannot be brought into NZ?

I would like to take chocolates (boxed).

You would almost certainly be fine with chocolate. Never say never but I think Biosecurity NZ/Customs would pee off a lot of people if they started banning chocolates.

In saying that, i am not entirely sure about chocolates containing nut or honey (can they contain honey???).

Steer clear of seeds, meats, fruit, and vegetable. Bad bad bad.

Worst comes to worst there are amnesty bins in the arrival hall before customs and immigration. Read through your arrival document and bin anything there. oh i assumed you meant arriving by air and the item in your luggage? Not a giant stock of them in a shipping container!

http://www.biosecurity.govt.nz/perso...t-declare#food says this:

Food Food should not be brought into New Zealand. If it is, it should be declared. Some items, such as canned baby foods, may be imported, but items such as meat, eggs, fruit and vegetables, and some other food products, pose a threat to our environment. Specific fresh fruit, vegetable and living plant material will require an International Phytosanitary Certificate (IPC) available from relevant Government departments in the country of purchase. Information about private consignments of meat products.
