Is this a Record?

I was in Coles Supermarket on the 29th December 2018 when I came across this:




There is even a selection Normal, Mini and Chocolate Hot Cross buns. Amazing! Easter is not for three months, the poor little bugger has only just been born and they are already talking about nailing him up.

This must set some sort of record surely?

WRONG!!! - One of the Supermarket chains had chocolate Easter eggs on sale immediately after Xmas (B/4 New Year).

Hot + buns are available all year round in Sainsbury’s, also the small Cadbury’s easter eggs are on the shelves 12 months of the year.

I poured some hot water down a rabbit warren. Out came a few hot cross bunnies.

I was going to say that. You can always buy a hot cross bun whatever time of year. Whatever next? Turkeys in June?
