From Asda to Aldi, we taste test high street hot cross burns ahead of Easter

NOVELTY hot cross buns are being served up with odd toppings – and high levels of sugar and salt.

Adults should have no more than seven teaspoons of sugar per day and kids five.

We found one treat with nearly four spoons PER BUN.

Ben Griffiths checks out what you will find on the high street.
