The Woolworths Traditional Hot Cross Buns (R16,95) won our tasters over with their texture, mildly spiced flavour and wonderful aroma.
SuperSpar’s hot cross buns (R12,95) are big on value and flavour. Our tasters liked the sweet flavour and spicy aroma.
Tasters liked the glossy, dark-brown colour of Pick n Pay’s hot cross buns (R15,99). They also liked the slightly spicy aroma of the buns.
Our testers said these hot cross buns were just sweet enough, but it was not spicy enough. It was a bit dry and had very little fruit inside.
