Fuzzy on the outside, green fleshed on the inside, kiwis make the perfect alternative treat to carve up for Halloween.
I mean, why should pumpkins have all the fun? Here are some ideas to play with your food and make something fun for the season.
Chocolate chips, pretzel pieces, sprinkles, and a little imagination is all you need to get a fun little snack for the upcoming Halloweekend.
The boys and I had some fun trying to make some Bad Piggies and Frankensteins with our kiwi creations. You can then skewer them up with some marshmallows and balled canteloupe for fun skewers!
Candy and junk food is going to dominate the next week for your kids. So have some fun, think outside the candy pail and scoop up some Zespri® Green Kiwifruit and Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit for your Halloween Party menu.
A melon bar never met a kiwi fruit it didn’t like to make some spooky green or gold kiwifruit eyeballs for a gross-out sensory game, punch decoration or panna cotta dessert.
After our trip to Australia this summer, I became a big kiwi fan (especially after I learned I was eating kiwifruit wrong my entire life) and they’ve become a big part of our fruit collection each week.
Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit provides three times the amount of vitamin C found in an orange. A kiwifruit has as much potassium as a medium banana. Two green kiwifruit contain about the same amount of fibre as a bowl of bran flakes.
They’re good for you, and they’re fun.
When you’re done carving them up, you can get really ghoulish and toss them in the blender to make a slime drink (recipe from zesprikiwi.com).

I admit – I had never considered carving a kiwi fruit for Halloween. We have one ripe for the carving in our fruit bowl ready and waiting 🙂
