Hot Cross Buns
Hot cross buns are back on supermarket shelves and I couldn’t be happier about it. Nothing better than a hot cross bun, lightly warmed, dripping butter. I love the traditional fruit but will happily try the newer flavours like chocolate and coffee. Even a brioche variety! Fuck yeah, delightful. I’ve even *gasp* had the plain ones. Butter, jam- yep, 10/10, would eat again. Whats not to like?
But some people are fucking miserable about it. “IT’S ONLY JANUARY OMG!” “MY SUPERMARKET HAD THEM IN DECEMBER!!”
They are so damn angry and it occurred to me recently that, while I never use the expression “first world problems” because it’s kinda mean and reductive, this has to be the ultimate one. A product being available BEFORE you want to buy it has you frothing at the mouth? Hilarious!
Hot Cross Buns should be illegal to sell outside of the month of Easter. It is wayyyyy too early right now 😓
