Oh. My. God.

We’ve said time and time again, that Easter is the best time of the year when it comes to limited edition flavours of our favourite food.

Lidl has gone and added to that argument, by bringing back their famous Deluxe Hot Cross Bun Ice Cream – which sounds nothing short of heavenly.

The luxury ice cream is made with British double cream and whole milk, swirled through with cinnamon sauce and juicy raisins.

Customers went wild for the special release last year, so it’s excellent news that the budget supermarket has brought back the fan-favourite.

The Deluxe Hot Cross Bun Ice Cream, £1.99 is available in stores from Thursday, April 11.

If you’re looking for a more grown-up offering, we recently stumbled across hot cross bun gin – which sounds equally as good.

The company behind the wonderful sounding drink, Gin Tales, describe the creation as: “A beautiful gin infusion with citrus, sultanas and Easter spices.”

“Our Hot Cross Gin is an adult twist on an Easter favourite… leave the buns and chocolate for the kids, this is Easter for grown-ups!”

Not on the High Street

It’s proving to be a popular offering too, sitting at an impressive four out of five stars on Not On The High Street. 

One customer wrote: “Lovely tasting gin. You can definitely taste the hot cross bun fruits & spices when you drink it.”

Another said: “Friendly and good service, gin was devoured in one session! Utterly delicious!”

The gin is priced at £35, so it’s definitely one that falls into the ‘treat’ category.
