Today at our local Kroger I ran across a new bun in the bread section. They are Kroger brand hot dog buns that instead of sliced on the side they are sliced on top. Seeing that we were having some Pearl's brand chili dogs tonight I would have tried them but they were 3 times the price of conventional h/d buns and worse than that all 6 packages were near expiration date and were already hard as rocks! Any Kroger customer here try them and have a comment? Thanks!
