What on earth do they put into hot X buns?

    A friend came round for tea today and we each partook of a Sainsbury's hot cross bun. Gawd, I've got terrible indigestion. That's it for this year. And I can't find the Rennies. I saw Heston Bloomindaft on telly the other day going on about his buns made with Earl Grey tea and manadarins. I wonder if they'd be any better. I suppose it's my fault for not waiting till Good Friday. Maybe it's a ploy of Sainsbury's to make us feel some of Jesus' agony! Anyone else suffered yet?

    No. I'm not. It's some particular ingredient of the hot x bun.
     
  7. Hmm. Citrus peel?? I don't think it's digestable.

    Did you remember to pay VAT as they are called "hot" ?

    Nutella, it was only baby stuff - tiny wee rabbits etc. Inhaled in a flash while the child played innocently in the garden... what she doesn't know will never harm her...
     
  11. At ours some rather fearsome looking hoodies from the Level 1 learning department came round flogging bags of "Homemade" Hot X buns 4 for a £ which I succumbed to to show willing. They were fantastic with heaps of dried fruit!
     
  12. I can't tolerate dried fruit. yeuch, and ouch
     
  13. CK, you did it to protect her tiny teeth, of course ;)

    You make them sound as if they were made of cocaine or crystal meth! It's the first time I've heard of inhaling choccie rabbits!
     
  16. Have you never heard that used as a metaphor for eating something really quickly, Nutella? Maybe it's just me, hah. :)
     
  17. Thankfully hot cross buns don't affect me in that way, but mince pies often do. Were you wearing a tight waist band? I get heart burn if I eat too much while wearing anything restrictive round my tummy.

    It'll be the X's, they can cause havoc in the stomach.
