Whittaker's Has Released a Limited-Edition Easter Chocolate Inspired by the Humble Hot Cross Bun

You've heard of a chocolate hot cross bun, but what about a hot cross bun in chocolate form?

New Zealand chocolatier Whittaker's has released a special Easter treat for folks looking for something other than eggs and bunnies to indulge in in 2024. While it might seem a little early to be planning your Easter egg hunt and lining up Australia's best hot cross bun, it's never not the right time to indulge in Whittaker's chocolate.

Whittaker's Choc Cross Bun Block fuses two of the best parts of Easter — hot cross buns and chocolate, of course — into one creamy block. Whittaker's classic milk chocolate is flavoured with raisins, spices and orange oil to capture the sweet citrus flavours of a traditional hot cross bun.

Crafted in Porirua, like all Whittaker's chocolate, this limited-edition chocolate block is a great alternative for adults who may not be interested in the admin involved in an Easter egg hunt.

It also ties into one of the best Easter trends each and every year: seeing how chocolatiers, restaurants and bars can whip up new and inventive treats for the occasion. You'll only find this one at Coles supermarkets.

The Whittaker's Choc Cross Bun Block will be available in Coles stores across Australia while stocks last.
