UK retailer ASDA has started selling hot cross buns that are vegan and gluten-free.

The buns, which cost £2 for a pack of four, are made out of vegetable oils and rice flour, currants, raisins, orange and lemon peel.

‘Everyone’

Sonia Collins, product developer at ASDA, says: “Hot cross buns are Easter essentials, and with even more set to be eaten this year, we want to make sure we have a bun that tickles everyone’s taste buds.

“Whether you’re obsessed with chocolate, prefer a fruity flavour, or live a vegan lifestyle, we’ve got mouth-watering options, ensuring something for all the family to enjoy.”

The products are available in select ASDA stores and from the ASDA website.
