It’s just not Easter without a fresh hot cross bun and Penrith residents appear to agree with Coles Penrith recording the second highest hot cross bun sales in NSW in the lead-up to Easter.
While not every shopper was happy to see them hitting the shelves in January – just weeks after Christmas – Coles Penrith has still sold more than 10 tonnes of the Easter treats.
Bakery Manager, Jenny Wright, said she was proud of her team for continuously producing high quality products.
“I have a fantastic team of bakers who produce a great quality hot cross bun. The customers just love them and come back every year to buy them,” she said.
Building on the traditional hot cross bun, Coles State General Manager, Orlando Rodriquez said Coles was excited to introduce their newest range this year, the Coles Finest Brioche Hot Cross Buns.
But don’t worry if you haven’t yet indulged, as Coles will be cooking the buns right across the Easter weekend.
