Consumers have been inundating the retailer with requests for its hot cross bun recipe and clarity on the breathalyser reading. They are also asking to place bulk orders and want the hot cross bun range to be extended to Checkers LiquorShops and even to be sold all year round.

Checkers however confirmed that its sought-after hot cross buns are alcohol-free and only made with stone ground flour and the finest quality natural ingredients.

The decadent Checkers range sold in
stores countrywide includes: 
Traditional hot cross buns
Hot cross bun rings
Gluten-free hot cross buns
Chocolate hot cross buns

The false-positive reading in the video is most probably due to the yeast and fruit which may cause inaccurate breathalyser readings as was first reported in Australia in January 2019.
