I haven't reviewed an Easter product for a while, and it's still a while away from the big weekend, but to be honest I haven't found many new products this year. I did find this hot cross bun loaf though, and while I'm sure it's not brand spanking new, it's the first time I've picked it up.
I do enjoy a hot cross bun, but the shape sometimes leaves a lot to be desired. For quick toasting it can be quite awkward to cut right, like a bagel or scone, and the wrong slice can leave the surface area for buttering very uneven. But this stuff is a hot cross bun in sliced loaf form. It fits perfectly in the toaster, provides a nice flat surface for spreading, and what's more, it tastes great too. It's a good thick dough that isn't too stodgy, and it has just the right amount of spice for my liking, alongside some nice juicy raisins. It's great toasted, packing a satisfying crunch, and melted butter on top makes it even better. All my hot cross bun related woes have been dispelled, this is a must have during the Easter period.
My rating: 5/5
