Although everyone likes to complain when they see hot cross buns on their supermarket shelf while their Christmas tree is still up — our attitude is forever grateful that we can enjoy these little delights all year round.
Now more than ever, supermarkets are upping their game when it comes to flavours. Gone are the days of boring plain or fruit flavoured buns, today is all about new and exciting flavours to tempt your tastebuds during the lead up to Easter.
In episode 6 of Testing The Best, we gave ourselves the tough task of trying these new takes on the OG Easter classic. Whilst it might be a hard job, someone had to do it…
Here’s what we tried:
Delicious in theory, but how does it stack against the OG? As a newly released item for Coles, we were definitely keen to see if this lived up to it’s viral hype.
Yes, okay — this has been around before, but who are you to argue with chocolate on chocolate?
Whilst many would assume this is too rich for breakfast, we were pleasantly surprised at just how easy they were to eat.
Apple and cinnamon:
An iconic flavour combo in our books. Who are we to argue with the classics?
Soft with little bursts of spice throughout, you could easily eat a whole packet in one sitting.
Raspberry and white choc:
Another newbie to the list! An interesting choice for a breakfast line-up, but of course it’s a great option if you’ve a lover of all things white chocolate.
Cadbury brioche choc-chip:
Cadbury in a hot cross bun, what could be wrong about that? Brioche made hot cross buns should be more of a thing too (in our option at least!).
Jalapeño and cheese:
Yup, a SAVOURY bun joins the mix but, is this more of a bread roll? This was a must for us as we like the idea of challenging the norms when it comes to these traditionally sweet treats.
