Shoppers went into a frenzy when they noticed the supermarket giants Woolworths and Coles selling the easter treat in December at select stores. The official roll-out date for the buns was January 2 and 3, respectively.
Now, ALDI Australia will begin to offer the buns to customers from Monday January 29.
An spokeswoman confirmed the release to News Corp Australia: “We recognise that customers like to purchase these popular seasonal treats ahead of the Easter period and we’re excited to offer our Australian made range of Hot Cross Buns from this date.”
Easter Sunday falls on April 1 this year.
Tell us, are you happy hot cross buns are back in January? Or is it too early?
