New England Style Hot Dog Buns

Where in the DC area can I find packages of New England style split hot dog buns (the ONLY kind you should use for lobster rolls)?

  1. I have gotten them at Wegmann's before.

    1. Pepperidge Farm makes a top sliced hot dog bun that I've gotten i think at Harris Teeter or Giant. I'm in Arlington.

      1. I've seen then at Trader Joe's.

        1. Believe it or not, I am looking at a bag of Bunny Enriched Buns that I purchased from Harris Teeter in Columbia, Maryland. They are very old fashioned Wonder Bread in texture and have turned brown nicely on my BBQ grill on their sides after getting a slight wipe of butter. And yes, they are split on the top, proper for lobster or shrimp rolls (Maine shrimp, of course). And they are made by a company in Georgia. Flowers Bakeries, Thomasville, Georgia.
