Marks & Spencer's don't offer the greatest selection of vegan products but when you find something that is accidentally vegan, it is a truly beautiful moment.
I am a lover of hot cross buns and I thought I would chance it by checking the ingredients, minimal hope was in my heart, but to my immense surprise and joy there was absolutely not sign of dairy, or anything else derived from animals! So I instantly put two packs into my basket and promptly made my way to the checkout, whilst forgetting almost everything else I had been asked to buy through my sheer excitement... I did go back obviously because I am a good person and my mum wouldn't have been overly impressed if not!
The hot cross buns are so incredibly fresh it is unreal, they almost melt in your mouth. Even the crust is soft and moist! How is that even possible?! The dough is laced with juicy currents, sultanas, and deliciously wonderful Apple pieces. I really can't get over how good these are, they are lightly spiced so that they are warming yet not too overwhelming or strong.
I am currently enjoying these as part of my breakfast and I have absolutely no regrets, they keep me full until a late lunch and I definitely feel satisfied.
