Woolworths launched its new limited-edition Caramilk hot cross buns just days after Coles released their Vegemite and cheese version of the classic Easter treat. 

Teaming up with Cadbury, Woolworths’ indulgent hot cross buns have been made with Caramilk chocolate chips and are just $4.50 for a pack of four. 

The supermarket’s variety of hot cross buns, including the Australian-first Caramilk flavour, hit the shelves on Wednesday December 29 in store and online.

There will also be new buttery Brioche Hot Cross Buns filled with Cadbury Milk Chocolate Chips added to the range.  

The traditional selection of hot cross buns will be back in stock including fruitless, fruit, chocolate and mini-sized as well as the return of the apple and cinnamon indulgent buns made with 100 per cent Australian sourced pink lady apples. 

Gluten intolerant customers won’t miss out with the gluten free hot cross bun range also back in stock. 

The announcement came just one day after Coles launched their new limited-edition Vegemite and cheese hot cross bun that was released on Boxing Day more than four months before the Easter long weekend.

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.’ 

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