Won't be long, if they haven't already filled the shelves.

Luv it -  :D - never miss an opportunity.  Getting into the spirit of spring before winter has hit them.

Now that you mention it - I haven't!
Last year the hot cross buns were out in the first week of January!  The stores just don't seem to realise that something loses it special -ness if it is too easy to come by.

Please let us know when we should add an Easter section here. When is Easter this year?

Thank you

I saw hot cross buns in Coles this morning. I read in the paper that Coles and the Red Cross have some deal going where some of the money from all the buns sold goes to the Red Cross. Perhaps they are hoping to sell lots by starting early.

I am sorry to break it to you all, but in Target today I saw Cadbury Creme Eggs, and the solid chocolate eggs sold in bags....so its only a matter of time (probably when they get rid of the 75% off Xmas stock) that the other eggs are rolled on in!!

I love Cadbury Creme Eggs. In UK they are on sale all year round. They are scrumptious.

Do you like them scrambled, boiled or fried? LOLOL

Yes, they are certainly out, I saw some easter eggs in packets this morning. The temptation to buy was very high, but we still have quite a lot of chocolate from Christmas so we'd better eat that first. :'( :'(
