Do you lot not have hot cross buns there, or have I misunderstood the source of your confusion?

Hmmm, well we might, though I've never laid eyes on one myself, so I think maybe they're not too big here? It's more that I didn't realize they had any association with Easter, so I was confused what crucifixion had to do with anything (guess the "cross" part should've tipped me off, huh?) and thought maybe there was some in-group joke I wasn't getting. Maybe it's just because I'm Jewish, but the only foods I associate with Easter are Peeps and chocolate eggs. For some reason I do recognize that "one a penny two a penny" thing at the end, though.

They do look tasty...

This does seem a bit strange. It's what we'd call "jumping the gun".

I've never had them with frosting..

They are quite tasty Yolland, even if they are out prematurely

Easter Mince pies, wow, that Mr Kipling does know how to rake it in...I wouldn't mind some Easter themed French Fancies though

Isn't the frosting the "cross" on the buns?

Forgive me, I'm non-practicing, which means I only know the Easter bunny and Peeps side of things.

It's usually just cut into the bun before baking or added on with another really thin pastry.


ETA: So I've thought more about this frosting thing, and the trend to add chocolate, and really for what I associate them with it seems a little decadent or sacriligious. I know it's not really as they are a secular thing but it's funny how little things/changes can irk you like that. I must be getting really old

Totally forgot them.
Last year, when I was in Australia, they were complaining that it started in February with the Eastern thingies, this year it''s even in early January.

The ones we got always had frosting for a cross. And they had raisins in them. So delicious.
