I really liked the mocha ones for something a bit different but as a bit of a creature of habit the traditional ones were my fav, and my hubby took a packet of the traditional ones to work and said they went down a treat so that was good!
So pop this date in your diaries..... on Saturday 9th April, 'Bundraiser' Day will see all Bakers Delight bakeries across New Zealand, donate $1 from every six-pack of hot cross buns sold to Starship Children's Hospital in an effort to raise more than $5,000 for Starship's Air Ambulance Service. Hopefully it'll be a really successful fundraiser for this vital service.
And if you're interested in finding out more about the meaning behind hot cross buns at Easter then read this article from Wikipedia...
....and just for a bit of crafty fun, how cute is this little crochet hot cross bun...
and this Felt hot cross bun would make a great little addition to a felt food playset
So, would you like to try some Bakers Delight Hot Cross buns? I've been given 5 vouchers to giveaway for a free 6-pack of hot cross buns from your local Bakers Delight Store.
