Antarctic Kiwis Crave Peas, Crumpets, and Sun

During the winter there are no supply flights, so those on the Scott and McMurdo bases are anxiously awaiting the first flight with fresh fruits and veggies since February. The New Zealanders on the base made a list of requests that include wasabi peas, melon, and tomatoes. Read about their requests here.

What do you think you would crave after six months of winter isolation in the Antarctic?

I think the number one thing I would miss would be tomatoes, especially grape tomatoes. Also, I would probably crave fresh berries.
