It’s that time of year when supermarkets around Australia are already stocked with hot cross buns in the lead up to Easter. And the flavour varieties of these seasonal treats seem to get more bizarre every lap around the sun. Without question, Coles’ new hot cross bun varieties are a perfect example of this. Their new range has both sweet and savoury flavours, including a Special Burger Sauce Hot Cross Bun that might sound peculiar to some and delicious to others.
Coles has introduced three flavours as part of their new hot cross bun range. So let’s start off with the savoury number. The one that, naturally, has people divided.
Inspired by the widely loved condiment, Coles Special Burger Sauce Hot Cross Buns are loaded with cheese and pickle pieces. Because who needs raisins anyway? They come in four-packs and are priced at $5, so just $1.25 per bun. This is pretty good, especially if you and your household are just curious to try them.
As for the sweet hot cross bun flavours, we have a Red Velvet flavour as well as a Carrot Cake flavour, both filled with plenty of cream cheese frosting to satisfy the sweet tooth.
If none of these sound like your vibe (everyone’s palette is different), Coles also stocks Vegemite and Cheese Hot Cross Buns infused with the salty Australian condiment, parmesan and tasty cheese topping, as well as the ol’ faithful fruit and chocolate varieties if you want to keep things simple this Easter.
The new hot cross buns are available in Coles supermarkets across the country. See if your local store stocks the flavour you want by visiting the Coles website.
