Aldi Hot Cross Buns – Taste testing variety of toppings

Aldi Hot Cross Buns

A few weeks ago, I shared a post about an Aldi Easter Event that I attended. We got a first sight of the amazing new Easter products and got to taste the yummy food, chocolate and wine. There was a whole stand dedicated to Aldi hot cross buns which were rather tasty and I got bring home a sample. Josh came up with the best idea on how to show the case the Hot Cross Buns in a vlog. Josh is my middle son on the right in the video.

He wanted to select a range of toppings, different to regular butter and taste test them to see if it was a nice topping or not so nice. We filmed it yesterday and here is the result. It such a cute and funny video. Obviously biased but my boys are super stars, they know how to work a YouTube video.


We used the Mixed Fruit Specially Selected Hot Cross buns that cost 99p for 4.

The topping we used were

  • Strawberries, sliced thinly, used 2 strawberries
  • Avocado, sliced thinly ¼ of one
  • Peanut butter, we used smooth.
  • Syrup
  • Chocolate Spread
  • Scrambled Egg
  • Melted Cheese and ham
  • Squeezed lemon juice

All of these are available from Aldi, here is what they looked like toasted and ready for tasting.

Jack’s favourite

Jack wasn’t so keen on trying everything but he did love the chocolate spread, of course. And the melted cheese and ham.

Josh’s favourite

Josh was a fan of Syrup, Squeezed lemon and strawberry. Quite a bizarre choice of a favourite three!

My favourite

I loved the savoury ones, so melted cheese and ham was lovely.

Pop into your local Aldi and grab those yummy hot cross buns, you can find a few different flavours. There is mixed fruit, Brioche, Chocolate & Toffee and Cranberry and Orange.

Disclaimer I received vouchers from Aldi to pay for my Hot Cross Buns and Toppings. I doubt that influenced my children though!
