“It’s never too early for Easter treats in my snack filled eyes, and @mmschocolate have kicked off the year with a new flavour, Hot Cross Bun, available at @colessupermarkets,” he wrote.

“As you might well know, hot cross buns are a sweet spiced buns filled with raisins and fruit.
Mars have taken that colour palette and put it in a bag for this aesthetically pleasing mix of browns and light peach,” he continued.

“As for flavour, there is a ‘cakiness’ to the taste of these, with an after hint of mixed spice present, but I have to admit I wish it was a little stronger. Full credit to Mars for trying something completely different with M&M’s and releasing unusual flavours.”

The unique flavour is only available at Coles and sweet lovers can’t wait to get their hands on a pack.

“whaaaaaat??? I need this in my life!!,” wrote on follower.
