Taste Test: Hot Cross Buns

These lightly sweetened, spicy buns are best enjoyed warm and spread with butter. We tested four brands: these are worthy of a spot on your table this Easter

WINNER

 

The Woolworths Traditional Hot Cross Buns (R16,95) won our tasters over with their texture, mildly spiced flavour and wonderful aroma.

 

 

BEST VALUE

 

SuperSpar’s hot cross buns (R12,95) are big on value and flavour. Our tasters liked the sweet flavour and spicy aroma.

 

 

LIGHTLY SPICED

 

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.

 

 

Also Tested

 

Sweet Treat

 

 

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.

Price: R13,95 for 6, Checkers
