Hot cross buns come in every flavour imaginable these days - we’ve come across non-traditional varieties like bubblegum, choc-chip and (the weirdest) Vegemite and cheese! Are you a fan of these twists on the traditional hot cross bun?
Traditional is best
I’ll try anything once
And what’s the freakiest flavour you’ve come across? Tell us in the comments below!
Chocolate/choc chip hot cross buns are almost traditional now. I certainly wouldn’t put them in the same category as the other flavours you mention.
Thanks to everyone who voted, looks like there are a lot of traditionalists among us!
Here’s some of the crazier bun flavours we’ve come across in our travels:
No way would a Vegemite one ever cross my lips. There are just somethings you shouldn’t try to fiddle with too much.
I can barely see the appeal of bubblegum flavour but I can see it, but Cheese is another I think I will give a miss to.

Not a fan of HCBs, but just maybe
So, I’ve heard there are people who spread Vegemite (and other ‘mites’) on hot cross buns. Is this true? I have to say, I haven’t heard of this one.
Yes, it’s a thing
No, 'mites do not go here
I personally haven’t done it with hot cross buns but I have been known to spread a little Vegemite on fruit toast. Sounds gross but is actually delicious - salty and sweet!

Is this true?
Never heard of anyone spreading ‘mites’ on a sweet bun like a hot cross bun…but have heard of many adding butter/margarine and other sweet spreads (honey, jam, nut spreads etc).
I prefer mine naked.

I prefer to be wearing something in case of spillage OK I got what you meant but honest it was too hard to resist.
