Aldi Launch Rhubarb and Custard Hot Cross Buns In Time For Easter

Aldi have a range of five new hot cross bun flavours in time for Easter and, while we cant wait to try them all, it's the rhubarb and custard flavour that's really got us excited. And prices start at just 85p for a pack of six.

If you've got a serious sweet tooth you'll want to pick up the £1.09 salted caramel and Belgian chocolate hot cross buns before Easter this year.


Blueberry and 'very berry' flavours are on shelves for 99p.

The cheapest is apple and cinnamon, which cost 85p.

But perhaps the most unusual flavour is rhubarb and custard, which comes in at £1.09.

Most of the emerging flavours are part of Aldi's luxury Specially Selected range and come in packs of four.

But the apple and cinnamon buns are part of the Village Bakery range, and you get six for 85p.


The new flavours are on shelves now and when the Rhubarb & Custard flavour was spotted in store and posted on Extreme Couponing & Bargains UK, followers of the group were excited to get stuck in.

There have been over 370 reactions, almost 70 shares and over 900 comments since it was posted (three hours ago at the time of writing).

One fan said: "I'm not even joking.. I need these in my life."

While another commented: "I need these"

While a third couldn't wait: "please can you get me some if you go in to ALDI before me" they asked a friend.

But not everyone was as enthusiastic.

One said: you shouldn't mess with a hot x bun. Standard fruit is good for me!"

Another said: "Hot cross buns should only come in hot cross bun flavour."

Want to try these controversial new flavours? All the hot cross buns are sold in-store only from 85p-£1.09 and aren't available to order online. Find your closest branch here.
