Christians are being tricked and left confused about the recommended retail price of their favourite symbolic Easter treat. Hot Cross Buns are commonly advertised as being one a penny, two a penny. This can’t be right.
If you can buy two for a penny then one should be only cost a ha’penny. A pie man, who we interviewed on the way to a fayre, said, “My pies are a penny each which represents better value than one or even two Hot Cross Buns.” To find out if the pie man’s claims are true we sent intrepid reporter Simon (who is a bit thick) to purchase one. Unfortunately Simon, on account of being thick, was unable to produce the necessary funds when required to do so.
