Coles has launched a limited edition vegemite hot cross bun more than four months ahead of the Easter long weekend.  

The supermarket giant’s range of hot cross buns, which includes the new vegemite and cheese flavour, will be available for shoppers to purchase from Monday.

Giving the traditional Easter treat a savoury twist, Coles teamed up with Bega Cheese to create a bun infused with vegemite and parmesan and finished with a tasty cheesy topping.

The vegemite and cheese buns are $3.50 for a pack of four and will be added to Coles’ range of hot cross bun varieties including apple and cinnamon, sticky date and butterscotch, salted caramel.  

Coles General Manager of Bakery, Deli and Seafood Andy Mossop said he is sure customers will love the new vegemite hot crossed buns just as much as the rest of the range. 

‘It’s important to us at Coles to have some fun with flavours, and we always want to give customers something they’ve never had before, but ultimately it has to taste great,’ he said.

‘Our teams have put a lot of time and work into fine-tuning the recipe to ensure we have the perfect flavour profile so the signature vegemite savouriness shines through in a way we know our customers are going to love.’ 

While Coles is keen to start Easter preparations early, there is no word yet on when Woolworths’ hot cross buns will hit the shelves though a spokesperson said to keep an eye out for an Australia-first exclusive announcements coming very soon.

‘Our team has been baking up some exciting new flavours as part of our Hot Cross Buns range this year, and we’re looking forward to delivering customers indulgent and innovative treats to help close off 2021,’ they said.  

Hot cross buns will be available from Aldi on January 12 and at Baker’s Delight sometime next month.
