      It's just an issue of demand and supply.
      Rich people aren't going to look at your $3 buns.
      Poorer suburbs will.
      Which is why they're trying to get rid of some stock.

      My first job in Australia was at Coles Rosebay! Brand new store when they opened up in 2006.

      Didn't know it was an affluent suburb. Kept scanning Zucchini as cucumber. Travelled 4 hrs everyday for a 4 hr shift.

      Good times.

    Awesome first time post OP :D.

    I love buns, especially with butter.
    Coles buns are moist and really nice, bought some buns sometime ago can't remember where but they were really dry.

    All this talk about buns has just reminded me I need to buy some baking gloves, I know WatchNerd likes baking hopefully he'll have a deal on baking gloves.

    I don't understand why they were baked today, yet, sold for 10 cents.

    Unless they have a ton of loaf mix hanging around that they can't get rid of.

      It's odd I know but I think it's probably due to parbaking.

      •  

        Yeah.. but i thought that Coles got into a lot of trouble for that..

        • +1 vote

          They didn't get into trouble for it.

          They got into trouble for saying freshly baked. The reason being that people thought they were made and baked in store when they were only baked to finish them in store.

        •  

          @spaceflight: Yes, some of those products were parbaked in Ireland.

        •  

          @spaceflight:

          I remember that. They got done for for false & misleading representations and misleading conduct for advertising as “freshly baked” …

      I was thinking leftover ingredients,

      Out local Woolworths replenishes the shelf every few days with frozen hot cross buns at Parkmorw, $2 for a bag I think it was

      Coles freezes them.

      Some stores have in store bakery, others uses frozen ones. E.g. Oakleigh bakes them. Both Clayton stores sell frozen ones.

    Has anyone seen the brioche ones around?

    •  

      Woolworths town hall (Sydney) is still selling fresh buns. From memory, there was a fresh batch of the brioche ones on Thursday. Yesterday they had the fruit and fruitless ones. I stocked up on the chocky ones earlier in the week. No idea whether they'll have even more fresh ones on Monday, but could be worth checking your local woolies.

      The brioche ones have palm oil in them :(

      •  

        Is that unhealthy?

        • +2 votes

          For the environment, yes. There was a lot of outcry at Coles using palm oil in their easter buns a couple of years ago, I’m surprised this slipped through. Woolies prided themselves at the time for not using it.

        •  

          Palm oil plantations are associated with the clearing of important habitats for animals such as orangutans in parts of Asia. It's an industry with little or no environmental oversight is my understanding.

    They were baked (or par-baked) long time before Easter, and then frozen. They are all coming from a giant factory.
    They didn't sell enough this Easter and are just trying to get rid of their stock.

      I stumbled across some at Woolworths "thrift park" (parkdale) this week - 1.50 each. Couldn't help myself had to pick up a packet each of fruitless and chocolate. They were put out on the shelf still frozen to defrost…

      I got some a few days ago in VIC for $2, stocked up my freezer.

      If they were 10c, I would have got a standalone freezer.

    Wow, why didn't they just give them away to staff? 10 cents!

    Jeez, they come out earlier and earlier every year.

  •  

    The baked fresh ones are good.
    Some stores have ones which are frozen then thawed to sell.

  •  

    But what about the customer demand?? Coles told us on January 1 that customers are demanding hot cross buns all year round.

  •  

    But what about the chocolates one??

  •  

    I emailed Coles customer service on April 12, regarding selling hot x buns after Easter. This is the response I got:

    Thank you for contacting Coles Customer Care.

    Upon receipt of your correspondence, we were in contact with our Merchandise Team. They have advised that due to popular demand, we have continued to produce Coles Hot Cross Bun Range for a few weeks after Easter.

    Should you require any further information please contact our Customer Care Team on free call: 1800 061 562, where one of our consultants will be more than happy to assist you.

    Once again, thank you for taking the time to contact us. We hope this information has been helpful and we look forward to your future custom at Coles.

    Yours sincerely,

    I called BS at the time, but never got a reply………typical

    •  

      What did you originally ask them?
      Do you think they should stop selling them after Easter?

    •  

      Were you suggesting selling hot cross buns is sacrilegious? If people want them, why shouldn't they sell them?

      •  

        They keep selling them cos they have heaps of frozen ones left to offload, but make up some BS about customer demand. I can guarantee in a month they won't still be making and selling them, not because customer demand has waned, but because they will have run out of excess stock, and no amount of customer demand will convince them to make hot x buns all year 'round cos that would just make them look stupid. Kinda like selling Easter eggs, or Christmas bon bons, or Australian flags, or……all year.

        •  

          Some stores do bake them fresh and continued to do so for weeks after.

          They've already made them continuously since before Christmas, how hard is it to believe they would extend a bit past Easter? Not that some won't be selling excess frozen ones like these $0.10 ones probably are, but they wouldn't continue making fresh ones just because they still have frozen ones to sell in other stores.

  •  

    Well that's Breakfast for the rest of the year sorted.

  •  

    cant these just be all year round

    •  

      Well you have to give the people who get outraged at frivolous things something else to be outraged about.
