Hot cross buns with cheese in are now available are your local Marks and Spencer...

Well we never; Marks and Spencer have created a SAVOURY hot cross bun, and we really don't know how we feel about it.

Hot cross buns are one of our favourite tea time snack - fresh out the toaster and slathered with butter, you really can't beat 'em.

And we'll be honest - never, in all our lives, have we wished they were savoury.

But now that savoury hot cross buns do actually exist, well, we have to admit that they sound pretty darn good.

Talking us through this experimental treat, M&S explained: "The ‘Savoury Cheese Bun’ is made with a blend of two cheeses, juicy Turkish sultanas, onion, chives and of course the traditional hot cross bun spice mix. It is said to be the perfect pairing of fruit and cheese."

And we have to say, it sounds pretty good.

But how exactly do you eat one of these savoury buns? Well, if you're feeling indulgent, M&S have the following suggestion: "They're delicious stuffed with bacon for a gourmet bacon butty."

Too much? We'll let you be the judge...
