Zespri Kiwifruits Collectibles Fukubukuro {Lucky Bag} Giveaway | End of 14 Days Challenge #14DaysofZespri

Time really flies when you are having fun! 2 weeks just zoomed by and today is the last day of the Zespri Kiwifruit 14-Day Daily Scoop of Amazing Challenge!  And to celebrate the past 2 weeks, I have a fun giveaway for my friends and readers :)

My family usually eats kiwifruits when it's in season {May - October} and this challenge made eating these yummy fruits that much more interesting! We also learnt more health facts, not just about kiwis, but also about lifestyle too. Did you know that you need not just 7 or 8 servings of vegetables and fruits to be optimally healthy?? You need 9 servings!! And yet, how many of us actually achieve that?

Being parents, we have the knowledge and power to influence our kids to start eating and living healthy from young. Being a family and lifestyle blogger, I'm glad to be able to have this role to encourage my readers and friends to spread the information and raise awareness. Thanks for accompanying me on my challenge journey!

And here are the items you can win in my 福袋 {Lucky Bag} Giveaway!

Kiwi & Sandwich Bento Box and Spives {Spoon and Knife utensil}

Kiwi & Spive Plastic Holder

2-kiwis Plastic Holder


Mini-Kiwi USB Thumb-drive

Zespri-kun Kiwi Massage Cushion

All these cute items are very exclusive Zespri Kiwifruits collectibles, and are not sold in stores. I don't have the same amounts for each of these items so I will be organising a fun 福袋 {Lucky Bag} Giveaway :)

福袋 {fukubukuro} or Lucky Bags is a Japanese New Year custom where stores in Japan will prepare goodie bags filled with random items and sell them for a substantial discount. For example, if you go to an electronic store called BIC Camera, you might be able to get a 福袋 with the latest Sony Playstation and games at half the price. The fun is in not knowing what exactly the bag contents are, but knowing that you will definitely get a good deal! Like the idea??

Anyway, I'm going to bundle a few of these items together and give them away a  福袋 {fukubukuro} or Lucky Bag. Each lucky bag will contain at least any 3 of these exclusive Zespri Kiwifruits collectibles. There are 5 Lucky Bags to giveaway! To enter, simply

Hello we cut them in half and just eat them with a spoon. Kiwis are my daughter's daily school staple, she loves them. And I love them too because they are so easy to serve. I love the lucky bags idea, it's like sydney's Easter show bag concept, only they're not discounted ... They're expensive!

Hi Sakura, my boys love to eat golden Zespri Kiwifruit. Kiwifruits are high in fiber and rich in Vitamin C. We usually eat by cutting half and scoop with spoon. It's a healthy snack for my family. Thanks!

It's so difficult for me to get in 9 servings of fruits a day! We do love kiwi fruits though. You've got some great kiwi items to give away. Good luck to the Singapore entrants!

Usually we just attack the kiwi fruit with a spoon but we also like to slice the green and yellow kiwi fruits up and spread them out on a plate before eating them because the colours are so beautiful!

We love kiwis as an after dinner fruit treat. Recently, we tried making kiwi juices too! Very yummy :) Whenever I see Dana eating kiwis, I'm very proud that she's eating 5 times Vit C compared to apples!

We love kiwis made into jelly. It is chilling and great for the hot weather. Even my little tot can't stop having more portions.

The kiwifruit never fails to remind me of my grandfather as that is his favourite fruit. We eat the kiwifruit by cutting it into half and scooping the fruit with a spoon. Clean it out totally....haha. My kids would usually prefer to have the kiwifruit cubed, so that they can use the various food picks on it. Sometimes I would mix it into their plain yoghurt or oatmeal (breakfast). My 20 mth old gets really excited when she sees the kiwifruit. :)

That kiwi and spive plastic holder is very cute! I've enjoyed following your Zespri 14 days challenge. You've inspired me to eat more kiwifruit! :)

We enjoy our kiwis in a frozen ice popsicle. It's cool and nice to enjoy in the sweltering heat of Singapore. FB: Tracy Kim

We cut the kiwi fruit and mix with banana, blueberries, cereals and milk for a healthy breakfast.

I like to have it as a smoothie with bananas as a mid-day drink. Very refreshing in Singapore.

9 servings? I am way off 9 servings! But I do love Zespri kiwi and try to eat during the kiwi season too. Usually I will just cut in half to eat or make a fruit salad.

I usually have my two kiwis at one go, peel the skin off and gobble them deliciously like fishballs. But the best way I had them was kiwi popsicles. Simple slice them and freeze them with those DIY popsicles with my favorite apple juice or ribena. Great for a hot day. Yummy

I was never a kiwi lover until now I got pregnant with my #2. It started off when I caught a bad flu bug during the early stage of pregnancy and its best not to take additional supplements, Vit C. So one day, I was in the the local supermarket and everywhere I see is Zespri Kiwi and is it that nice?? I was also thinking to intorduce a new fruit to my tot and I choose a box of nice kiwi.

The promoter saw me and gave me some sample... and I never knew Kiwi is so nice and tasty esp the green ones :) totallt fall in love with it. Well now, I eat kiwi right from the fruit itself, just cut it into half and scoop it w a spoon. Great for a snack and healthy for the baby :)

I prefer eating the yellow kiwis that are sweeter and eat them plain. Sometimes I will make homemade jam with them and eat with scones :)
