The perfect hot cross bun is a favourite breakfast for many. So, which supermarket is offering the best hot cross bun this year? According to a new study, Aldi is the place to do.
Last year’s winners Marks & Spencer were still strong contenders this year, achieving top marks in the ‘Best Gluten Free Hot Cross Bun’ for its M&S Made Without Hot Cross Buns, which cost £2 for four.
These buns scored 88 out of 100.
Tasters praised the gluten-free offering for its nutmeg flavour and attractive glazed look.
Good Housekeeping’s consumer and expert panel tasted 10 Classic Hot Cross Buns and eight Gluten Free Hot Cross Buns 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.
“Aldi’s Hot Cross Buns are clearly a great pick for those on a budget (but not willing to compromise on taste!) and Cadbury’s proves its chocolate credentials with its Mini Egg Easter Egg coming out on top.”
