    Easter 2020 sorted. Thanks OP.

    I sure hope they're not 50c each or that'd be $3 a pack, which is RRP!

    My local coles (2147) was selling these, all except the only ones people buy these days, the chocolate ones. And for full price.

    Sure, I want your not-that-tasty plain hot cross buns for $3.50 a month after easter, coles, yeah…

    Depending on the bakery the store has, theres a chance these were in the freezer before they were 'baked' in store.

      Agree, the dough probably transported frozen to store.
      But dough freezes and stores reasonably well, assuming the freezer is right temperature.
      These should be fine and good as 'fresh'.

        Knowing of behind the scenes, unless the store has a full production bakery (dough mixers, proofing fridges etc), then they're pretty much a fully cooked product, then frozen and shipped to stores to pretty much warm up in the oven.
        Easy to spot and its usually the smaller stores, all they have as far as a bakery section goes is a timer oven, not that different from the ones in the deli.

          There's also a high chance that they're not even put into the oven and that they've come straight from the freezer onto the thawing rack and then to the shelf

    Wasn't easter like a month ago.

    There is no need of any bargain for food we consume. Better to save money for other things, but food should be as authentic as it can be.

      That sentence gave me a headache.

      •  

        I meant with fresh food should be fresh and one should think to pay the right amount to get this fresh food. Otherwise, no one will create fresh food. Everything will come in packed items, which is becoming a trend.
        You see with my simple opinion you got headache, and that probably is the effect of tinned food :D.

        Live the life of democracy and let other speak.

        •  

          I understood that. Nothing to do with tinned food, just your sentence that was a little hard to follow.

          Sure, fresh food could have a set price, and usually baked goods do. But this instance, and most fresh items there are variables.

          With this, it might have been oversupply to stores, either of the frozen or flour/bun mix, and with it being an 'easter' line the mix has a shelf life that won't see out 8 months.

          Produce is different, but again so many variables that effect price.

          Farmers still have costs to produce, yet weather can wipe out or delay crops, fuels prices to transport can fluctuate, etc.
