BUDGET supermarket Lidl has launched a new hot cross bun-flavoured ice cream.

The £1.99 480ml tub is studded with juicy raisins and also contains a cinnamon sauce to give it the iconic taste of the seasonal favourite, the chain said.

It's made with British double cream and whole milk, so it's not for those who are counting calories as a 100ml serving contains 129 kcal.

Alongside its Hot Cross Bun Ice Cream, Lidl has also launched a new Lemon Meringue Pie flavour, which also sells for £1.99.

The Hot Cross Bun Ice Cream is only on sale until the end of Easter, so ice cream - and hot cross bun - fans need to move fast.

Lidl has two branches in Taunton, in Castle Street and at Roman Road.
