Where to buy frozen pigs-in-a-blanket (party franks) in the Boston area?

I am having a party and want to serve the little hot dogs rolled in puff pastry - prefer kosher but that is not a deal breaker. Anyone know where you can buy them in the Boston area? I am having trouble finding them.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen 'em at Costco, but maybe in a mixed package with other hors d'oeuvres?

      My nephew loves the Costco mini pigs in a blanket, which are actually Nathan's Mini Bagel Dogs. He can go through a box of those plus a large bag of chicken feet in an afternoon without fail.

      I've picked up the Hebrew National ones at Market Basket in Woburn, for a very good price, but it was a while ago, and I'm not sure they still have them.

      BJ's and Costco often sell them, either separately or as part of hors d'oevre frozen platters, for relatively cheap.

      On the higher end, I belivee Baker's Best in Newton sells them by the dozen, but they're relatively expensive (but high quality).

        Restaraunt Depot usually has them - you need a federal tax ID number to join, and here's prior thread discussing the process: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7468...

          spring something (farm/hill?) is the company that makes them. much cheaper at costco than at restaurant depot. (by half)

            Trader Joe's makes a version called Parmesan Pups. I enjoy them, but the package is pretty small so I'm not sure how far it would go for a party.

                I know you want to buy them already made up but they are very easy to make and would be a lot cheaper if you make your own. Just buy the little cocktail franks you can get at any supermarket and wrap them in pieces of Pillsbury crescent rolls. Delish and cheap!

                  Wouldn't you be better off with frozen puff pastry dough (if you're going down this road) than Pillsbury crescent?

                  FYI - I got them at Costco in Everett. The Springhill box is 80 pieces - perfect number for my party. (not kosher for those who care)
