Review: Tesco Golden Syrup Hot Cross Buns

Review: Tesco Golden Syrup Hot Cross Buns
Another day, another hot cross bun review. This time Tesco's new Golden Syrup Hot Cross Buns. These are more in keeping with a traditional hot cross bun compared to yesterdays Double Chocolate variety, as they still contain dried fruits in the form of sultanas, raisins AND currants. 
Review: Tesco Golden Syrup Hot Cross Buns
I was curious to see how the golden syrup flavor would work in a hot cross bun and I was pleased to find out that it's a successful combination. The dough here has the distinctive sweetness from the golden syrup, but it's not too overpowering or overly sugary. Even though there is mixed spice listed in the ingredients, these do not have the usual spiced flavor found in hot cross buns, it's only there as a very subtle flavor. The golden syrup makes all the difference here and offers an interesting twist on the classic bun. 
Tesco also had some other unique flavours in their hot cross bun range. I also spotted Apple & Cinnamon, and Cranberry & Orange Hot Cross Buns.
Grocery Gems Verdict: Tesco Golden Syrup Hot Cross Buns
RATING: 8 out of 10.
Buy them again?: Yes - a good choice if you're not a fan of mixed spices.
Nutrition: 196 calories (each bun)
Vegetarian: Yes.
Purchased: Tesco. 
Price: £1.30 or 2 packs for £2.00.
