Costing just $2.20, the new Easter popcorn has been given the big thumbs up by fans - even though some were sceptical.
‘I thought I’d hate this because I’m not mad on hot cross buns, but it’s so good. Ate the whole packet in 5 minutes flat,’ said one. Added another: ‘Whoever made Hot Cross Bun popcorn is a genius. So yum.’
Gently spiced with cinnamon and other spices, the Australian kettle-popped popcorn is next-level yum.
Coles Grocery Product Developer Elizabeth Babic said: “The popularity of popcorn is increasingly rising in Australia, and globally there are already more than one third of consumers in the UK buying popcorn,,” she said.
“Our research shows that our customers are ‘flavour curious’ and want to try new snacks. Coles’ hot cross
buns are award-winning and we know customers just can’t get enough of them so it’s the perfect mashup to shake up the snacking aisle with something they’ve never had before.”
The new arrival comes as Coles’ hot cross buns were today named as some of the best in Australia by consumer watchdog Choice.
