A mighty twist on a classic.

It’s hard to believe anyone would be thinking about Easter, as we wait to ring in the new year, but here we are looking at Vegemite hot cross buns.

Wandering through the pastries aisle at Coles, you will find hot cross buns infused with Vegemite and parmesan, finished with a tasty cheese topping, giving the easter treat, a mighty twist.

The new edition buns have been created in partnership with Bega Cheese Limited, and are available in 700 Coles stores across the country.

A pack of four only costs $3.50, but as a limited-edition release, they’re here for a good time, not a long time.

Coles has also hinted at more new flavours to be rolled out across stores in the new year.

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

mad mex chicken al pastor

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.
