Best eaten fresh, served warm with butter or toasted and filled with iced cream for an epic ice-cream sandwich.
Coles Arnott’s Pizza Shapes Inspired Hot Cross Buns are a savoury sensation, infused with seasonings inspired by Pizza Shapes, featuring parmesan and cheddar cheese and topped with “flavour you can see”. Best eaten fresh, or as an indulgent cheese toastie filled with Pizza Shapes for extra crunch.
Coles General Manager of Bakery, Kate Roff, said the supermarket was thrilled to partner with Arnott’s to create the perfect Aussie pairing.
“Our limited-edition hot cross bun range is a wonderful example of when innovation meets quality, and we take great pride in offering our customers new and exciting products that also bring about a sense of nostalgia, which is synonymous with the Arnott’s brand,” she said.
“We continue to be overwhelmed with the popularity of our other bespoke buns, and we anticipate this new range will be no different. Pizza Shapes and Iced VoVo are family household favourites, and customers will be surprised and delighted by how similar the flavours are when they try the irresistible Easter treats.”
