Many shoppers gave the hot cross buns a glowing review.

‘Woolies popped off with these,’ one said. ‘I believe in Fairy Bread supremacy, so this is a ten out of ten.’

‘I added some Biscoff instead of butter and sprinkled the 100s and 1000s on top – delectable,’ a home chef revealed. 

‘Perfect, no notes,’ one simply said.

A man added, ‘Biscoff on one side, Nutella on the other, and butter with sprinkles on top. Best thing I’ve ever tasted.’

Some were devastated the buns were already sold out – so they decided to take matters into their own hands. 

‘I couldn’t find the Fairy Bread buns so I bought normal fruit hot cross buns, buttered them, and dipped in sprinkles. It’s actually fantastic!’ a man said.

While others were excited to get their hands on the popular buy.

‘I need to buy some of these during my next shop,’ a woman said. ‘My kids will love them.’

‘So nostalgic!’ another said. ‘I want to cry with happiness.’

‘I’m usually a traditional girl but the novelty has gotten the best of me – might have to try these!’ one noted.

The hot cross buns are now available in Woolworths stores and online Australia-wide. 

Brioche Cadbury Chocolate, Indulgent Chocolate buns and a Woolworths favourite, Cadbury Caramilk hot cross buns, will also be up for grabs along with more traditional flavours.
