Wow... The UK is totally f*cked post brexit if they're struggling right now with shortages.

That's not a good sign.
 
2018-02-25 12:41:11 AM  
If things get really dire I suppose we could replace the raisins with chopped figs or hmm... how about nothing.

I really like hot buns.

Mine are currently cross. That is unpleasant. I do not like hot cross buns.

My younger brother had a similar assignment to which the community was invited. I will never forget the hot dog sushi the folks down the street made.

With dried fruit prices going on..You would think there would be some sort of illicit trade they could

Well, maybe if the major supermarket chains stopped farking making and selling hot cross buns from the beginning of January then maybe there wouldn't be a shortage and they wouldn't be running out of the farking ingredients before Easter.

This is about baked goods?

Drat.

Nah. No shortages of those; seems like someone is dying on one every day.

I just bought a package the other day.  For some reason, those red and green bits just work in those.  Many years ago, Freihofer's used to make these buns that had the coarse sugar on top with cinnamon and raisins, those things were so good.
 
2018-02-25 09:00:06 AM  
Oh, come on, hot cross buns are easy to make.  All you have to do is pour boiling water down a rabbit hole.
 
2018-02-25 10:04:20 AM  
So odd how prices seem to rise on items tied to a holiday just before said holiday.  Or at least how their will be a "news article" about some shortage.  Has anybody thought to look into this?

Sorry, but Daily Mail articles are like Shrodringer's Articles. As soon as you open the link, 50% of the facts turn out to be lies.

Put it this way: Why is the UK the ONLY country reporting this shortage? Is it really because of some buns?!? I blame Meghan Markle and Brexit. But mostly Meghan Markle.

I thought hot cross buns were what they called dinner rolls at a KKK barbecue.

A quick Googling suggests that is not the case.
