20,000 Jaffas race down World's Steepest Street

A belated post this one, but still worth putting up...

Dunedin recently held its annual Cadbury Chocolate Carnival... a week-long festival of activities and events around Chocolate.

One of the most popular annual events is the Baldwin Street Jaffa Race. Basically 20,000 Orange Chocolate Candies (called Jaffas) are released from the top of what's believed to be the Steepest Street in the World (Baldwin Street, North East Valley, Dunedin).

The jaffas are individually numbered (you buy a number just like a raffle ticket), and the first ones to make it down the hill and through the little chute at the bottom score a prize... :-)
