Product Description

Fruited hot cross buns made with sultanas, Californian raisins, Cornish butter and citrus zest. The bakers crafting our hot cross buns have been baking for us for over 20 years. With each fresh batch they carefully hand-pipe a cross onto the top of each bun and then hand-glaze them with a soft bristle brush. The spicy, fragrant dough is baked in batches to ensure perfect flavour and texture. The result is a soft and delicious, hand-finished bun with a spicy sweetness. A perfect treat for any time of day served warm and toasted with melting butter.
Spicy & plump, Suitable for vegetarians

Probably won't buy these again.

Regularly order these weekly but recently they seem to have become very dry. The ones I had delivered last week were really hard and stale and still had two days until the expiration date.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

No other bun will do....

I love these buns irrationally. Like other reviewers, I am no fan of the squashy, mouth-clogging, doughy versions that pass for luxury elsewhere. These have a light - yes, some might call it drier - texture, but the fruit is generous and well-hydrated. No hideous leathery rabbit-droppings, but rather, moist and luscious morsels which complement the bun itself. Gorgeous subtle spicing. A lick of salted butter and... excuse me, I have to go and eat one RIGHT NOW.

Better bought from Waitrose

These are delicious buns, but only if you buy them directly from Waitrose. I've ordered these several times through Ocado, and they're always stale. Pity. Hence only 3 stars.

in date, but dry and tasteless, will not buy again

Rating: 5 star out of 5


I'd disagree with the bad reviews. These are very tasty with nice fruit and a good spicy taste
