Hemp water

Just 10 months after hemp seeds were legalised as a food in Australia, the country’s first hemp water has been released. Australian owned and made, +hemp’s key ingredient is high-quality organic hemp oil, harvested from Australian-grown organic hemp seeds. Hemp oil has many benefits including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and has been linked to cardiovascular health. Taking the natural, nutty flavour of hemp and combining it with a citrus burst, +hemp ($5.50-$6.50) is a hydrating and nutritional drink suitable for both physically and mentally active people.

Available via as well as selected IGA supermarkets, BP and Metro petrol stations.

Personalised chocolate

Cadbury and Kmart Australia have come together to provide a very tasty Christmas gift this year – personalised gift boxes filled with Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate. The gift box, containing 550g of Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate, is exclusively on offer for $10 in selected Kmart stores and is made to order with the first name (up to nine letters) of the gift recipient – or treat yourself!

Available in store only at Kmart.
