Nut milk chocolate, which we buy in Auckland for 3d, we pay 6d for. Condensed milk is 1/- per tin (10c), safety matches 1d per box instead of two for 1d. A tin of pears costs 2/-; we pay 1/1 or 1/2 for it in New Zealand, and so on. You could buy candles in New Zealand for 7d per packet; we pay 6d for five half-candles, which only last about an bout"
