One a penny, two a penny, hot cross...death


Looks so innocent, doesn't it? All hot, and crossed, and with delicious, plump raisins. But beware, friends! This is the hot cross bun of death! 

Yesterday I was Off Work with food poisoning, brought on by a hot cross bun, or two. Or four. I think they were the culprits, anyway. So I laid on my bed, feeling very grotty, hallucinating about various things (it was quite a bad dose of food poisoning) including vaguely thinking that I was lying in the aisle of a Hobbycraft and that I should really get out of the way because someone might run me over in a shopping cart full of felt. Thankfully today I feel much better, aided significantly by the best piece of grilled tuna I have ever had in my life from Pescatori. 

So, in summary, do not eat four dodgy hot crossed buns.  


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
