The SDC’s Novelty Hot Cross Bun Rankings 2024

As we all know, once Christmas and the New Year pass us by, supermarkets are quick to add hot cross buns to their shelves. Lucky for us, they also like to experiment with strange novelty flavours each year. Since these are notoriously hit or miss, we’ve decided to try them for you (selfless, I know) to see if it’s worth the cost or just an expensive gimmick.

We’ll continue to update this article after each taste test.

Let the snacking begin!

We tried the Iced Vo Vo hot cross buns from Coles. A little sweet but nice and a nice change from the norm. Now they are out of stock and item has been deleted from their records and it is not even Easter yet. Looks like we won't be having these for Easter 😞
 
Absolutely loved the Iced Vovo hot cross buns, would certainly eat them again if only I could get my hands on them. Also love, love, love the Vegemite & Cheese hot cross buns.
As for the Arnott's Shapes hot cross buns 🤮🤮🤮🤮 defiantly not a fan.

I froze a pack of Iced Vovos and 2 Vegemites. I am glad I did. I love them. Regular ones are still my all time favourite.
