In the wake of an announcement that Cadbury's manufacturing operations will be moved across the Tasman, many Kiwis have been left unhappy.

In a poll on The AM Show, 71 percent of viewers said they would boycott the brand, after parent company Mondelēz announced iconic Kiwi treats like Jaffas and Pineapple Lumps will be made in Australia.

So if you're in the majority of people who will now cease buying Cadbury products, here are a few New Zealand-made substitutes you can chow down on in their absence.

Remarkable Sweet Shop Jaffas: One of Queenstown's most iconic stores is your go-to place if you're craving a Jaffa but can't bear to reach for Cadbury's version, or that of its subsidiary Pascall.

Like the OGs, The Remarkable Sweet Shop's Jaffas are dark chocolate balls wrapped in a crispy orange crust, and are of course made right here in New Zealand. Go figure.

RJ's Licorice Allsorts: Pascall actually discontinued its liquorice range back in 2015 due to lack of demand, leaving lovers of the confectionery without their favourite treat.

If you're part of the small group that actually enjoys black liquorice - and you want something local-made - RJ's Licorice is a pretty good bet.

Rainbow Confectionery Pineapple Chunks: That cheeky marketing team over at Pascall managed to engrain into the Kiwi psyche that Pineapple Lumps were a New Zealand treasure, thanks largely to this ad:

But the truth is, while they're delicious; Rainbow Confectionery has been making its own version in NZ since 1953.
