Woolies announces a limited edition ice-cream flavour you won’t want to miss!
Even though it’s still too early to be thinking about Easter (kids aren’t even back at school!), we have to admit that Woolies latest announcement has us looking forward to all the sweet treats that it brings. Hot cross buns are a favourite with Aussies of all ages, with popularity growing each and every year news.com.au reports, so this latest addition is sure to be a hit!
The Ultimate Sweet Treat
The new ice-cream won’t miss any of the original flavour, combining juicy raisins and a hot cross bun flavoured ripple with fresh Aussie cream. The traditional bun is still the favourite with consumers, making up 60% of sales, but new varieties appear each and every year to keep things interesting. Woolies head baker Ben Thompson says it won’t be stopping anytime soon. “Our team of bakers have been busy in the kitchen coming up with a whole bunch of new ideas and we’ll have lots more to surprise and delight our customers with our hot cross bun range in the lead-up to Easter,” he said.
Shaking It Up
If you’re not a devotee of the traditional hot cross bun, or just want to try something new, there are plenty of ways to shake up this popular treat. Along with the ice-cream, Woolworths are also stocking brioche style hot cross buns, chocolate chip hot cross buns, and even fruit-free hot cross buns for those who hate raisins, so there’s something for everyone.

We absolutely love hot cross buns, especially seeing all the new and inventive versions of the classic each and every year, but we think we’ll hold off on buying them for a couple more weeks. We need that gap between Christmas and Easter to come out of our food coma!
