Easter wouldn’t be Easter without a traditional hot cross bun. But for 2022, supermarkets from Aldi to Waitrose are launching a whole host of creative new twists on the classic – and it’d be rude not to give them a try, too.
First, there’s the super sweet-toothed options like sticky toffee, triple chocolate and salted caramel. Then there are plenty of fruity infusions, too – try triple berry, Bramley apple or St Clements orange flavours.
For those with a more savoury tooth, look no further than M&S’s ever-popular Marmite Cheese hot cross bun (which is actually available all year round now due to such high demand), or how about Asda’s tomato & red Leicester buns, which were touted as tasting like pizza when they launched for the first time last year.
As you can see, there’s a hot cross flavour to suit all tastes and palates, even those hot cross bun-haters out there will find a flavour to fall in love with this Easter.
