Hot cross buns come too early for CQ residents
The silly season has come and gone for another year but supermarkets throughout the Mackay region have now set their sights on Easter.
They are already serving up hot cross buns but tourists and residents shopping at Caneland Central believe the Christmas period should be over first.
Kelvin Evans, Andergrove: “To me it doesn’t really bother me because I don’t buy them, but I’m sure it might annoy some people.”
Mr Evans said he would prefer if buns were brought out a few weeks after the Christmas season finished.
“Probably a bit of money grabbing straight after the Christmas break, so maybe they could wait a couple of weeks,” he said.
The Easter bunny came too early for Sarina resident Dave Duncan and his Emerald friend Mitchell Wright.
Mr Duncan said he believed the only people who benefited from the bun’s early release were bakeries.
“They make a few bucks, keep them going,” Mr Duncan said
Travelling from Gladstone to enjoy a stay in Mackay, Ian Treveton said the Easter delicacy had come too early.
“It’s too many months away from Easter,” he said.
“They need to be relevant to the reason why they were made.”
