New Zealand's original The Bachelor couple were a hit in the Bay when they visited over the weekend.

Arthur Green and Matilda Rice were at New World Hastings on Friday and New World Havelock North on Saturday promoting Mr Green's CleanPaleo products.

Ms Rice said they had a lot of interest in paleo protein powder because shake diets had become more popular in Hawke's Bay.

"It's gone really well, it's also been nice to come here for a weekend away."

The couple loved the region so much that they planned to visit more often, Mr Green said.

"Who knows? Maybe we'll move here one day," he said.
