Only true fans will sport this fashion accessory.

ALDI just dropped the most fire Easter swag, the Bun Bag.

The Bun Bag is exactly as it sounds, it’s a bum bag for your hot cross buns. Every year, Easter eggs get all the glory of being scattered around the backyard and collected in baskets, instilling joy in children. But let’s face it, hot cross buns are just as important. Some would say it’s the symbol of Easter. When we see them on shelves, we know the Easter holidays are approaching. It’s time we protect the HCBs

The Bun Bag, which comes in two designs, has two insulated compartments, ideal for packing in a couple of mouth-watering hot cross buns for the on-the-go. There’s even a spot for your butter and any other spread you like to lather on a hot cross bun.

The limited-edition bun bags will only be available for the biggest hot cross bun aficionado, with 20 Bun Bags up for grabs. To win, simply say why you’re Australia’s biggest hot cross bun fan on ALDI’s Facebook page.

What are you waiting for? Pass the butter and enter today.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
