I grew up in the '50's & 60's. My grandchildren love to hear the stories. I'd walk home from school, and in Wisconsin it was a cold, and frequently snowy, walk. My friends and I would stop at the soda fountain the Pink Pony - to warm-up and have our favorite snack - a Bun and a cherry Coke. Back then the cherry Coke was made with real cherry juice and the Bun was huge! (at least to a young girl). I haven't seen them in years but my grandsons and I keep our eyes open just in case.

Bun was a great candy bar, chocolate, peanuts and caramel or vanilla or maple goodness inside. Back in the late 50's and 60's, they weren't everywhere. My Dad was a traveling salesman and whenever he happened across them, he would treat me with a handful of them. He always got a big hug as a reward. Still can't find them here in Ohio, but a few years ago, my youngest daughter bought me a case of each for Christmas. What a dear. They're terrific frozen!

When I was about 10 years old, I remember seeing the name “Bun” on a nicely wrapped package at the village Red & White store, behind the check out counter. After seeing the same box of these “Buns” for a couple weeks, I thought “Why would anyone buy or eat or even want a ‘Bun’... What could be the attraction to that!? So, I bought one.
Wow, was I surprised and happy I took the challenge to answer my own question, that was DElicious! Who needed a candy bar when the Buns were right there??
To this day, it is still one of my all time favorites (50 years later).
