    Dozens. Quite literally. Average of 2 a day since Shrove Tuesday so probably close to 80 by now. I win.

    I literally cannot stop eating them. I eat like three a day and would eat more if my dad didn't love them too! I like the waitrose luxury ones best... I normally end up with the cheapest Sainsbury's ones but man, the Waitrose ones are so good. I once bought a pack of 12 mini luxury hot cross buns on the way back from a gold DofE expedition and I ate 11 of them in the space of about 2 hours

    Just this Easter period. I think I'm the only person who keeps a lifetime tally of hot cross buns eaten.



    :hand:



    :king1:



    I grew up having all kinds of raisin bread/teacakes toasted, so I'm rebelling against it now by having all my hot cross buns untoasted.



    Have you never tried any of the chocolate options? I've seen so many varieties this year, including double chocolate ones at Tesco.



    More people are into having them toasted than I thought would be.



    I am keeping you in my thoughts.



    I'm so jealous. I can't eat any of the ones that contain dairy so I've been looking at all the luxury ones and feeling close to tears.
    But theyre so nice toasted with butter!! Sacrilege!!! :rofl:

    One whole person (iEthan) has voiced their support for this thread, so here it is.

    How many have you eaten? How do you eat them? Have you stuck to the original fruit ones or have you gone rogue?

    **No hot cross bun hate will be tolerated**

    This thread has not been created with the intention of triggering people with coeliac disease. This is a safe space for gluten free hot cross buns.
    2 for the year lol

    No, I can't. :sad:

    Dairy free options have got much better since I started with the problem 8 years ago, though. I have vegan cheese now and although it's not the crumbly type of cheese that I used to love it does make baked potatoes and pizza more interesting. And I got some dairy free Magnum style ice creams last week, which have changed my life for the better. I sometimes have coconut yoghurts (although they're expensive, so they're not a regular thing) and I have rice milk every day. My problem initially was that all dairy free foods seemed to be based on soya, which I also can't eat.
    Ugh I can relate to this on so many levels. It sucks having a milk allergy, feels like I'm missing out on so much. Though luckily for me i don't have any issues with soya

    I think the worst thing is going into a shop and seeing the rows and rows of options they have for people who can eat milk and then having to be grateful for the one option they have for you. It's not as bad as there being no option, but still...it would be nice to have some choice.

    Only once in my life in Year 4 or 5 - I don't like raisins.
    I remove all the raisins
