I can go one better (or worse) - we saw Cadbury Creme Eggs in Woolworths BEFORE Christmas.

Eclair said...

Surely not. Surely they were just ordinary currant buns with unfortunate tan lines.

I can't cope with even the thought of Valentine's Day (and more chocolate. Ooph.) nevermind Easter!

Kim said...

view it as karma for your intimidating book review post.

I beat you, I saw them in Woolies on Tuesday

velcro said...

I swear I saw what looked like a display of Easter eggs in Boots yesterday.

Elizabeth said...

There are hot cross buns at one particular supermarket all year because they came up with their own brand. However, I feel this is not right at all and boycott them until Late March. Can't people wait for anything anymore?

Joke said...

Ha! I have seen people with their Christmas lights up, fully 11 1/2 months ahead of schedule.

I can remember when I worked for Coles a few years ago we were told that the customers EXPECTED (I would like to see that!!) H/cross buns after Christmas... A bit of a retail fabrication me thinks..

Stomper Girl said...

No way! Even if it's an early Easter this year, that is just ridiculous. Surely they shoukld be doing chocs for Valentines first up?

Although ... really LOVE hot cross buns ... may just nip out to Coles for a minute.

Hey, SG, why is your blog blank? Did you change your template to something in the "Polar Bear Eating Marshmallows During A Blizzard" vein?

Stomper Girl said...

I dunno. I just went there and found it gone...*don't panic, don't panic*. Must be something to do with old vs new? Off to investigate

meggie said...

GOM came home angry on Tues. He had seen the Hot Cross buns too! He thinks it is some plot to send us all crazy!

I too, have noticed Stomper Girl is in whiteout mode??

Stomper Girl said...

This is bad. Just tried republishing and nothing happened .. *mustn't panic, mustn't panic*

May have to move over here to Suse's for a while.

Stomper Girl said...

It's okay Suse, it's back, I'll leave you alone now. Lucky I didn't panic.

capello said...

i'm not certain what coles is, or hot cross buns.

but anything with the word "hot" and "buns" has to be good, right?

nutmeg said...

I thought 15 comments - this topic has hit a chord until I saw Stomper had taken over the comments box! Just kidding Stomper - I just visited you and everything looks OK.

Anyway Suse, I saw the hot cross buns on Tuesday at Woolworths and it stopped me in my tracks. I thought I had entered some parallel universe and missed 3 months of my life. This consumerist crap is getting on my nerves. I am trying to keep my visits to the mall/supermarkets to a bare minimum.

leslie said...

forget the hot cross buns, why doesn't my woolies have cabdury cream eggs yet???? bloody love those things.

oh, er, right, new year's resolutions...

Di said...

There's no way I'll be buying any. We are still ploughing our way through Christmas cake!

Di said...

PS: I have been wanting to thank you for your kind comment about my cushions. I am new at this blogging business and didn't have an email address to respond to. Then the penny dropped!

BabelBabe said...

our supermarket put its easter candy aisle up last week. your post was a relief to me though as I thought Americans had cornered the market on holiday overanticipation.

Suse said...

Gee Stomper, I made up the spare bed and everything.

Stomper Girl said...

You're too kind. I promise to wash my own thongs.

herhimnbryn said...

Some one somewhere must buy them!

Anita said...

Sadly, here in the UK you can buy hot cross buns any day of the year. A couple of years ago I was in a department store a couple of days afer Christmas and saw an assistant putting out valentines cards!

My float said...

My local woolies was trying to flog green freddo frogs (with internal smarties) as "christmas chocolates". yeah, right. because we're really THAT stupid

janet said...

It's far too hot to be thinking of Easter.. sheesh! Hope you had a good break!

Garden girl said...

yum yum yum, I've already consumed two packets of them. Can you tell I love them??? (bought at Coles.)
