Fire Up The Barbeque

We are very pleased to announce today that our new Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns are now available.

If you've been reading this blog for any period of time, you'll know that we are always looking to create better products which are more widely available.


We've known for a long time that our Hot Dog and Hamburger Buns were less than ideal; they were too big, the tops flaked off, they tended to be quite crumbly and just kind of hard to use. Well no longer. We've done a reformulation and reformat.

Both the Hamburger and Hot Dog Buns are now virtually flake and crumble free, they are thinner, easier to eat and toast great. You may not believe this but these buns are "one-handers". That is to say you can eat your hot dog or hamburger start to finish with one hand. No mess, no fuss, just great taste.

While we reduced the height of our Hamburger Buns, we wanted to keep the package weight the same, so you now get 5 buns instead of 4 for the same price. Yes you read that correctly, an extra bun, no extra charge.

Many of you who don't buy directly from us may not have even realized that we sold Hot Dog Buns. That's because we couldn't make enough to meet the demand from stores. Now we can and stores have been anxiously awaiting this launch. Look for stores carrying both varieties of the new and improved buns within the next couple of weeks.

For those who can't wait, you can order directly from us to make sure you've got what you need for the May long weekend (May 18 in Canada, May 25 in the U.S.)

Grab the charcoal, the fixin's (and the GF beer for those so inclined) and have a great summer.

Thanks for the updated info on the hamburger and hot dog buns. My wife uses Kinnikinnick hamburger buns exclusively. We have always cut them down to make them shorter for a less bun to meat ratio. It's great to hear that we won't have to do that any more. Plus we'll get an extra bun. We haven't tried the hot dog buns, but maybe we'll look for them. Thanks

Brian -

The new and improved buns are out of this world! It has been eight years of searching for a great hot dog bun and finally Kinnikkinnik has provided it.

Thanks so much!
