When did this happen? The last time I picked up hot dog buns at the supermarket they were standard split and fill, not anything remotely like the ones used at a popular hot dog stand in Poipu, Kauai. Puka (hole in hawaiian), meet Buco (hole in italian, pronounced like BOO-koh), because with buns that are già forato (already pierced), only time will tell if italian junk food junkies will embrace the concept of a buco dog, capisce? In my very humble opinion, these “american” buns are not bad at all and hold up well even with squirts of mustard, ketchup and hot sauce. PRICE POINT: a 3-pack of buns (odd, I know, but that’s the way it works here) cost only 1.04€ after a 30% discount. A 3-pack of wurstel rang up at 1.23€. Getting a taste of american food culture can be so ridiculously cheap!
