Aldi is selling cheese and onion flavoured hot cross buns for 99p – but it’s left shoppers divided

ALDI is selling cheese and onion flavoured hot cross buns for just 99p – but even a discounted price isn't enough to convince some shoppers of the unusual taste.

The Specially Selected hot cross buns are normally £1.29, but along with a few other funky flavours in the range, they've been reduced by 20p.

The bargain was shared on deal hunting forum, hotukdeals.

But Aldi shoppers quickly moved away from discussing the potential saving on their grocery shop to comment on the "odd" flavour.

One said: "I would say the cheese and onion aren't really hot cross buns…they're more like scones, but they are great"

While another said: "Noooo…they should be illegal – a bit of cinnamon yes, but anything else is an abomination."

But while they couldn't agree on whether the taste of the hot cross buns was acceptable, other shoppers were finding an issue with Aldi's discount price.

Some were convinced the slashed price still wasn't enough of a bargain, and that other rivals had cheaper offers going.

Under the hotukdeals post one said: "Aldi is more expensive than Waitrose now.

"The Tesco Finest ones are the best and they're two for £2," said another.

You get four of the buns in the Aldi pack, which with the new 99p price, works out to be almost 25p each.

If you want to try out the new flavour you'll have to head to you closest Aldi store to pick up a pack.

Aldi doesn't do online grocery deliveries – but use the store's handy locator tool and you'll be able to track down the tasty treats in no time.

There's plenty more weird and wonderful flavours on the market too, if you're set on trying every combo imagineable.
