They look so good. I stay away from sugar, but can dream about these.

FYI, Iced Buns are: Easy iced buns | BBC Good Food

The bread part is sweeter than a normal dinner roll (though perhaps not a US dinner roll since there seems to be HFCS in everything nowadays).

There are similar products in NYC chinatown bakeries and a couple of Japanese bakeries in midtown.

Best with an unsugared cup of tea.

Cheesy Marmite crumpets with crispy bacon and glazed mushrooms recipe - goodtoknow

For the sweet stuff we would smother just about any kind of bread or bun in Lyles golden syrup usually accompanied with a Tizer.Is it any wonder i a'm diabetic....

Trader Joes sells crumpets.
Toast 'em, butter in all the nooks and crannies, and then Jam or Marmite on top.

My kids hate them, which means they actually last in the house.
