(Picture: Marks and Spencer)Attention, vegans: Marks & Spencer has launched vegan hot cross buns, and this is EXCITING NEWS.
Traditionally, hot cross buns are made using butter, eggs and milk. But M&S has made some that are free from animal.
The hot cross buns are flavoured with Bramley apples and come filled with currants. They’re fruitier than the average bun and apparently taste good either cold or toasted.
They cost £1.50 for a packet of four and are going to be available all year round, making it the perfect snack at any time of the year.
(Picture: Marks and Spencer)M&S product developer Sadia Usman said: ‘Our Bramley Apple Hot Cross Buns are a longstanding favourite with our customers and best thing is they are now completely vegan.
‘Ideal for little ones due to their familiar fruity flavour – this Easter everyone can enjoy a hot cross bun.’
In other hot cross bun news, Aldi has launched some hot cross bun stuffing balls – but unfortunately these bad boys aren’t vegan.

The hot cross bun stuffing balls are made using dried fruit, Bramley apple sausage meat stuffing and black pepper and cinnamon.

It’s then finished with a pastry cross to keep with the signature hot cross bun style.
A pack of six will be available from Sunday 14 April for £2.25.
