The Bun was made originally by the Wayne Candy Co in Ft Wayne, Indiana.  They no longer make the original Bun, but Pearson Candies makes a Bun bar in several flavors, including maple.  The Pearson version is available at my local Walgreens.

Well thank you dcosbey, My Dad used to love those.  Here is another question, I seem to remember when posting on roadfood forum page that you could see it on the from page instead of having to go back to unrelated topics.  Maybe I am doing something wrong??

I remember seeing Bun bars for years as a kid just never had one.

I remember them - a big patty of milk chocolate covered peanuts with a big wad of some hyper-sweet nougat in the middle.  As a kid, they were quite a treat.  As an adult I'd never touch one:  too sweet.

They included a hockey card as a premium in 1992-93. I never did finish the set of cards though since the Buns were so overwhelmingly sweet.

Most of the Big Lots stores here carry them, but on a hit-or-miss basis.  Like all candy bought at Big Lots, be sure to check the freshness date; some of their stuff can be way past its prime.

They are available here in Cincinnati at Jungle Jim's; in fact, I just had one last week!

I hadn't thought of these in years, but the maple flavored Buns were my Fathers favorite candy. I haven't seen them locally lately, but I wasn't looking either. If I do run across some, I'll get one just for that rush of happy childhood memories.
