Hot cross buns

You can now buy a hot cross bun flavoured spread just in time for Easter and it looks incredible.

With Easter 2021 just around the corner and hot cross bun season is upon us, you can now get a hot cross bun flavoured spread to enjoy the delicious flavour on ANYTHING.

Hot cross buns are a traditional Easter food and are a must-have treat in the spring time.

Now you can recreate the same great taste as the humble baked good for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a midnight snack all year round (if the jar lasts you that long).
