Paris Buns-have not seen one for years-we always got them from `The Breadserver`who called 3 times a week!!
 
I am sure they are still available in Home Bakeries somewhere in N.I. today.

My Dad was a breadman for Sunblest and on Saturday mornings after stocking the van up at the bakery for the big Saturday round he came back home at about 08:30/09:00 for the big Saturday family fry all made with fresh potato bread , sodas and pancakes fresh from the bakery and then as a treat us kids were allowed to go out to the van and pick a bun or pastry to have later , my brothers and sisters always went for the big cream buns but I always took a Paris Bun with its sparkling sugar crystals and had it later split in two and slathered thickly with good country butter  :nyam: :)

Ali -Saturday mornings when I was allowed to go and pick a bun from Bob`s big wooden tray which he pulled out and lifted me up to see all those buns-that memory stays with me to this day!

Was put off Paris buns for life when I went along with my Granny to a money lenders house in Albert St in the early seventies. The money lender in question was and old woman with warts that had hairs growing from them. During the financial negotiations that too place in her parlour a tea break was called. I watched transfixed in gastronomic horror as the old woman consumed a Paris Bun with no teeth,  slurping mouthfuls of tea to soften the the crumbling bun on her gums! Never had one since!

Did she take a wee pinch of snuff?

It's a warning not to French kiss someone who has just eaten a Paris Bun  :D

     Jilly I made thousands of custard tarts and Paris buns when I was an apprentice baker in Inglis in the early sixties. The Paris buns were topped with nibbed sugar ( large sugar crystals ). Great memories.
                                                                                All the best, Dub.
