Fried Pies are usually made by lil' ol' ladies.

        I have been experimenting with the New England style buns lately. I have been finding them in Krogers. They are called "Coney "buns on the package. They seem to be a really good bun. I like the way you can butter them on the sides and toast them up.  It is an unusual bun around here. They run about .32 a bun. Just a quick thought though, it has been my experience that a good bun is worth a few more cents. Your customers will pay more for quality and taste. I fell into the habit of getting the cheapest buns I could get and I did not care where they came from. That was a mistake. I have been looking at higher quality buns as well as good quality dogs to serve. I decided that I wanted to sell a product that was worth selling and one that people will come back for. Yes the price is higher, but I decided that I will close it up before I sell another crap dog. :)

          I used a local bakery bun for a year because of the great price I could get, $1.15 for a dozen.  But it was a heavy roll, terrible for a plain or just mustard dog.  Switched to the Freihofer rolls, $2.12 for 16 pk at rest depot.  These rolls are money in the bank no matter what toppings.

            In New Orleans when a kid we had Vories Pie. Similar to Moon Pies but to my taste a lot better. I'm sure it was a New Orleans brand just like Elmer's chocolate "Gold Brick," a small chocolate bar with pecans in it. 

            We also had a bakery "Hubigs" that made those great "Fried Pies." I've eaten every flavor but if there were Lemon, I grab it first most of the time. Here in Colorado I have to settle for "Moon Pie" and another brand of Fried pies.

            I'm sure I've eaten a "Twinkie" somewhere along in time. Do you guys know if the Twinkie folks make the "Moon Pie"  or maybe the "Fried Pies" here in Colorado?
