What better way to enjoy the (relatively) sweet taste of freedom than with more cheesecakes?
Or pudding Or pie
As the country – Bar Auckland and Northland – went out of level 4 lockdown in the middle of the night, Hamilton’s Gumdrops Desserts reopened its store for painters.
Within 30 minutes, a line of about 50 customers, some dressed in pajamas and dressing gowns, snatched his way from the store front and along the sidewalk.
Mother Carla Frost and daughters Ella and Steve Williamson, aged 9 and 5, came dressed and ordered several cheesecakes, a chocolate pudding and a bun pie.

“When Ella was little, she saw on the barrel that they got up and invited for midnight, and she’s wanted to do that ever since,” Frost said. Husband Justin and one-year-old son Toby were waiting at home for a dessert.
“It’s a different and cool memory for the girls,” Frost said. “The epidemic may not be the best thing to remember, but they had to go out in the middle of the night.”
Rock and roll music from store speakers added to the festive atmosphere as queuing families and homes were placed on their bubbles.
Molly Josie, 18, and friend Alisha Clark, 23, bought half a dozen cheesecakes to celebrate the Level 3 warning.
The appeal of home-cooked food had waned after two weeks, Josie said. His takeaway Odyssey will continue with a visit to McDonald’s later.
“It’s definitely Makas,” he said.
Donna Williams, creator and director of Gum Drops Desserts, said patrons contacted the store during the Level 4 lockdown and asked when they would begin ordering online and contactless pickups.
Within an hour of opening, about 300 cheesecakes and 250 bonfires were snatched.
“Lockdown can mean a lot to different people,” Williams said.
“It can be scary for a lot of people. Everyone is itching to do something when Aunt Jacinda says we can go to Level 3 at midnight.
“We thought that if we could do it the right way, it would be welcome in Level 3. Our main focus is on following the government’s coveted rules and regulations because they are very important. And it was really good. This is because our customers have complied by wearing masks and working from a distance of two meters.
Couple Jay and Nikita Rogers enjoyed a healthy meal during the lockdown but wanted to celebrate the transition beyond Level 4 with caramel and Oriole cookie cheesecakes.
“And tonight was a good excuse to get out of the house,” Jay said.
