Who Does The Best Hot Cross Buns!

Who Does The Best Hot Cross Buns!

With Pancake Day passing by recently, most people will now be turning their thoughts to Easter, and the delicious goodies that the long Bank Holiday weekend will bring, and while Easter eggs might be the first choice for many, for us the hot cross bun will always be a favourite.

But which supermarket is offering the best hot cross buns? Sidestepping the novelty flavoured versions, such as Sainsbury’s Strawberries & Cream Hot Cross Buns, Good Housekeeping has done all the hard work and compiled a list of the best buns to buy in the run-up to Easter.

So before they disappear off the shelves again for another year, here’s what they say are the hottest hot cross buns.

Fans of bargain supermarket Aldi will be pleased to hear that theirs have been named both the best budget buns, as well as the overall best hot cross buns, scoring 88 out of 100 for its Aldi Luxury Fruited Hot Cross Buns, at 99p for four.

Tasters in the Good Housekeeping taste test commented on the toffee-like sultanas throughout, and the subtle notes of cinnamon and clove.

The runner up, with 86/100 was Iceland’s Hot Cross Buns, £1 for a 6-pack. Marks & Spencer’s Without Hot Cross Buns, £2 for a 4-pack scored 88/100, winning the gluten-free category, with Tesco’s Freefrom Hot Cross Buns, £1.90 for a 4-pack getting runner up with a score of 77/100

The expert tasting panel at Good Housekeeping sampled 10 different hot cross buns, and eight gluten-free variations to give consumers the best guide to the popular toasted currant teacakes this year.

Stacey Smith, Food and Drink Editor at the Good Housekeeping Institute says: “We always strive to make the consumer’s life as easy as possible – and this Easter is no different! From the top tasting Easter Egg to the best Hot Cross Buns, we’re delighted to offer our expert insight into where people can find the best tasting Easter sweet treats this year.”
