Shopper finds rude message on hot cross bun

A Tesco shopper has been left horrified after she found a rude message printed on a hot cross bun.

Lisa Sheehan was shopping for the seasonal treat at her local supermarket in Sheerness, in Kent, when she found the particularly crude bun which was marked with the words "I want your sex".

The shocked shopper immediately took a snap of the x-rated bun - which was found in the Bridge Road store on Tuesday (02.05.17) - and put it on Twitter, where she claimed the sight put her off eating the fruit bread snack.

She wrote: "Shocked to find this at the bakery in Tesco Sheerness! Put me right off my teacakes!!! (sic)"

The supermarket chain has since responded to Lisa's shocking discovery, claiming the fault lies with an employee who got "too creative" during their last day on the job.

A spokesperson for the store said: "One of our colleagues was a little too creative in the bakery on their last day in store. This item was not intended for sale and we are sorry for any offence caused."
