My hot cross bun, regrettably, for this year was from Miette.
First of all, they don't sell them each, you are forced to buy four at $6. Forgetting the horrible Irish Soda bread, I bought the lovely looking buns.
The were golden and plump with a deep cross cut in the top and filled with, my favorite, white icing. It's all presentation with Miette, and they came in a cellophane bag that was re-sealable.
What a dried out mess. Stale tasting and there was that @#)@ rye that ruined the Irish Soda bread. Miette needs to lose the rye flour or seeds or whatever they are using. If I want rye bread, I'll buy it. I don't want rye hot cross buns. The less than generous currents were tasteless. The icing was ok.
I was going to have one and share the rest with the homeless. Again, a product that I'd be embarrased to impose on the homeless. The seagull will get the rest of these. They have no discriminating sense of taste after all.
