“It’s a fruit bun people… if people didn’t buy them, they wouldn’t start baking them,” said one supporter.
Added another: ‘Give me Hot Cross Buns all day, every day, all year. I love ‘em.’
Coles meanwhile has defended the move to sell the buns early, claiming customers “can’t get enough” and wanted them as early as Boxing Day.
‘We sold millions of hot cross buns in January last year and are rapt to be able to offer our customers some new flavours to enjoy now, and some more to look forward to in 2019,’ Coles Category Manager Freddie Hancock said in an official statement.
Hot Cross Buns will be available around the country from tomorrow - but will you be buying them?!
