Poppy seed hot dog buns...WHERE can I find them

Hi folks, looking for any place in the bay area that sells poppy seed hot dog buns, thanks.

  1. I don't believe this beast exists, having tried myself in vain, alas. I always end up getting the mail order package from Chi.

    1. I've never seen these anywhere in the U.S. Where have you seen them? (Sound tasty.)

          The poppyseed bun is one of the components of a classic Chicago hot dog.

            Grew up with them in Chicago, but never saw them anywhere else. Vienna Beef sells them as part of their rather pricy kits but not separately.

            They're in the same category as New England split buns, addictive regional specialties.

          2. Have you tried asking one of the places that sells Vienna Beef dogs whether you can buy some of the buns or order through them?
