The Spreadable Hot Cross Bun, RRP £9.99 has all the spiced, sweet, sticky, fruitiness of a real hot cross bun. Treat your toast to this gourmet glaze or go full hot-cross-bun-inception and spread it all over your Easter hot cross buns. 

Xavier Unwin, Creative Director at Firebox, said, “Following on from the success of our popular Spreadables range, we’ve decided to expand into the festive realm of Easter with Spreadable Hot Cross Bun.

"Many people are looking for exciting new ways to revamp their lockdown baking efforts, and we think Easter will take on a whole new dimension with this!”
