    Which Easter treats are you most looking forward to tucking into this year? The Hotel Chocolate Easter ‘sandwiches‘? The Marks & Spencer pink Prosecco egg? The epic Game of Thrones dragon Easter egg? Maybe you’ll be investing in all three (we will be).

    If you’ve not got a sweet tooth, there’s even a pure cheese egg that you can spread onto crackers or eat in chunks depending on how you like your cheddar.

    However, if you’re a fan of Easter snacks but you’re saving the chocolate eggs for actual Easter, you don’t have to miss out. Aldi has launched a range of hot cross buns so that you can treat yourself to something delicious this month.

    First up we have the rhubarb and custard hot cross buns. At just £1.09 for a pack of four, they’re an absolute bargain – and there are a few other flavours that might whet your appetite.

    If rhubarb and custard isn’t your thing, you can try the salted caramel and Belgian chocolate hot cross buns (drool) or the blueberry and ‘very berry’ option (yum). They are priced slightly differently £1.09 and 99p respectively.

    There’s also an apple and cinnamon flavour, which comes in at 85p, and sounds absolutely delicious. Plus, you actually get six hot cross buns in this packet.

    But if you want to try a few of these exciting flavours, you’ll have to head to your nearest Aldi to pick up a packet as they’re not being sold online.

    We’d suggest getting down there pronto as these are sure to sell out.

    Which ones will you be trying?

    We’ll take one of each, thanks…
