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!
