      We’ve had quite a few set-backs in trying to brings these wonderful buns back to the market. Not the least of which being the custom-made equipment that helps our bakers create and package that unique shape. When we tried to track down the old equipment we found that all of it had been re-manufactured. Our bakers have looked into working with new equipment designers and manufacturers to rebuild the secret designs, but it’s slow going and extremely expensive. For now, all we can tell you is that it’s going to take awhile. Sorry.

        So glad you are working on it. Rest assured I’ll be buying a lot of them. In addition to hot dogs, they are fantastic for sloppy joes!

          I do hope you will bring the Snuggles back to market. So often when we have an extended family gathering someone mentions them wistfully. I finally decided to poke about on the Internet to see what I could find out and so next time I’ll be able to report that you are working on it. Thanks and PLEASE PERSEVERE! We love Snuggles 🙂

        I think once you resolve the equipment problem your next problem will be meeting the demand. You may not need a marketing campaign because once a they are available and a few people post on FACEBOOK how great they are I think it will go viral cause they are that GOOD! The last time we found these here in NC was in the late 1990’s at FoodLion. My family still remembers how great they are for hotdogs.

    Yes! These were excellent! I always thought they were called covered wagon buns. Ive searched over the years here and there for these w/ no luck. Now that I am in the food service business i’d love to get my hands on some of these! Please bring em’ back! . Bill

    Snuggles were the best chili dog bun on the planet. The biggest issue was store location. Snuggles were never located by the hotdog buns. I could understand why retailers would think it doesn’t sell well. If you do bring them back, re-think the packaging. Show a loaded chili dog and a Chicago style dog loaded with relish onion tomato pickle spear.

    Another “vote” from another fan who has gone too many years without the only hot dog buns that never feel apart and always held all the toppings.

    Snuggles were pure genius.

    Please bring Snuggles hot dog buns back.. They are the absolute best. Hot dog and condiments rest perfectly within the bun. The best tasting bun I ever ate. Please resume manufacturing these awesome great tasting hotdog buns. Philadelphia, Pa

      I really hope you find a solution to the equipment needed to make these perfect buns again. Not only were they great with hotdogs but so incredible as a tuna fish sandwich. Somehow the bun tasted sweeter with tuna. I tell my wife about them and she has never heard about them so I looked them up today and found this page.
      I’m happy to leave my comment and SO wish they would come back again. I would have 3 bags in my house ALWAYS, and not just for hotdogs but so many other sandwiches.

      1. Toufayan

        I’m with you Patrick! Sometimes its slow to make changes, but the Toufayan family wants to bring your favorite products to your family. Hopefully we start seeing some progress soon!

    PLEASE, PLEASE Bring back Snuggles, please! They are truly the best and there’s nothing else like them on the market. there THE BEST IDEA you have ever come up with. PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!

  6. John

    Are you folks still working on bringing Snuggle Buns back? Any ideas on release dates and availability? Would love to have them again!! Waiting, almost patiently….

    1. Toufayan

      There’s been a lot of talk down on the bakery floor. Thing is, we don’t have the same equipment we used to have. We’re wondering if we can set something up or if we need a more specialized solution. Either way, your comments here have resonated with our family and our bakers and we’re looking into the possibilities. Keep your comments coming, please!

      1. We used to go crabbing underneath the Golden Gate bridge and while our traps were soaking we’d spark up the BBQ and grill hot dogs,stuff them in snuggles with gobs of condiments, when it occurred to me how a crab salad would work in snuggles and the tradition was born. Great times……..PLEASE make them again!!

    it’s funny, I saw a hot dog at the gas station, with regular, standard buns… and I remembered while living in the Midwest, these buns, and I wondered if they were sold here in Texas… I left the Midwest last year, but I realized I hadn’t had a snuggles bun since about 2010… so I googled, and here I am… good to see so many people are looking for these buns as well… I haven’t explored the website, but I’m about to. .. hope they’re still making them, if not, they need to read the comments section and get back into the market…a lot of $$$ to be made… lol

    1. Toufayan

      Oh, we’re reading it alright! Thanks for your feedback, and thanks to everyone for their comments. Wait till you see what we’re baking next!

  8. Matt Bostian

    Please. No joke. I’ve had conversations with dozens of people in regards to what ever happened to these wonderful hotdog buns. Why would they go away? It seemed like they were a hit. They were a staple in my household as a kid and now there is nothing like them. Please.

  9. Shannon

    I bought Snuggle buns just a few times at least 15 or 20 years ago. Best things ever! And then they disappeared. I would definitely buy these again. Just make sure they’re in Indianapolis – or within maybe a four hour drive!

  10. Lori

    Hey it’s Memorial Day…where is my summer opener SNUGGLE roll!?!? They were awesome. Market it like crazy, don’t be shy!

  11. ralph

    One of my fondest memories of Ft Lauderdale circa 1977;
    BQ on a sunny afternoon, introduced to Snuggles.
    As a hotdog connoisseur (Pat Lafreida) I crave the perfect roll and yet to find. I decided to make my own with the goal of duplicating Snuggles. Dense, firm slight sweet perfection. Bring em back and sell em on line!
    Happy Memorial Day to all.

  12. Adam

    Please bring Snuggles back!! The best hot dog buns ever. Never understood what happened to these? Haven’t seen them since the 1990’s.

    1. Rae

      I SO miss those Snuggles, too! They’d be a real hit with my entire family if you ever bring them back! Please, please do!!!

  13. Meg

    PLEASE bring back your Snuggles Rolls!!! My kids loved these and still talk about how much they miss them! I would buy in bulk!!

  14. Kirt Nichols, MD, MHA

    They were in Columbia MO many years ago. I always bought them and enjoyed them MORE than any other bun out there. Been missing them and as hot dog season approaches please consider bringing them back

    W. Kirtt Nichols, MD

  15. Stephanie S.

    Yes! Bring these back!!! I grew up in the Chicagoland area (my family called these buns cradles), and these are the perfect thing for a Chicago-style hot dog, so all the toppings don’t fall out. Although I don’t think Toufayan was the brand back then, I love Toufayan flatbreads, so I know these would be just as good! P.S. I work in a grocery store, so I would buy them ALL THE TIME!

    1. Toufayan

      Yes!! Chicago-style hot dogs in a snuggle! I’m totally gonna ask the bakers to do poppy seed Snuggles and Everything flavor too. Good idea!

      1. Ellen

        That would be wonderful if you produced Snuggles hot dog buns again. They were the best! Remember them from the 1990’s. Have been looking for them.

  16. Jim Mitchellq

    Yes, please start producing the Snuggles hot dog buns again. The u-shape was so clever and effective. V-shaped bun fall apart, don’t provide enough room to add condiments, and the Snuggles tasted so much better. I can’t understand why they didn’t sell very well because they are far better than what is out there now.

  17. Marcy

    I agree… PLEASE bring them back and if you sold them by the other buns instead of the bakery I bet many more people would discover them. And how about a spot of advertising? I only discovered them be chance. Never could understand why I never saw an ad for something so great.

    1. Toufayan

      Thanks for the tip Marcy! It can be more complicated than it seems to get products in the supermarket on the right shelf. Keep the comments coming and we’ll be sure to get enough attention to get them back on the shelves!

  18. Jo

    Please bring them back. We loved them. We could only find them out of town but we bought them everytime we went. Even make several trips just to get them.

  19. Terry Schroeder

    PLEASE bring back the Snuggles! I pretty much stopped eating hot dogs when I could no longer find them! Also the perfect bun for chicken salad, tuna salad, etc! I am thinking a good marketing push would have them flying off the shelves!

    1. Toufayan

      Hadn’t thought of tuna salad on a Snuggle! We are working towards bringing this product back, mostly due to the comments on this board! So keep it up and we’ll all see some delicious results!

  20. MIKE R.

    PLEASE , Bring them back , i miss them . I ordered them over the phone , and the lady that took my order told me that she used to live in Great Neck N.Y. , at that time i worked at Saddle Rock School in Great Neck , and i had them delivered there . So if you only sell them online i am sure all of the people that replied would be very happy !!! , and i would ask those people to talk to local Supermarket Managers that sell your other products to get this product back on the shelves !!! TOUFAYAN PLEASE get them back , as you can see we LOVE THEM !!!

    1. Melanie

      OMG I have been looking for theses awesome hit dog buns since Ihad them up in Idaho in 1989 yes I said 1989! Just found out what they were called…..and niw to find out they have been duscontinued! So Very Bummed!! You have to bring them back ASAP!!!

    1. Toufayan

      That sounds amazing! We’re working with our managers and bakers to see if we can bring these back, please keep your comments coming!

  21. Ashley B

    LOVE the Snuggles! My husband now measures all buns against them, and I can tell you, none stand up. PLEASE bring them back! I would order them through Amazon Pantry if they were offered there!!!!

    1. Jim Mitchell

      I agree. V-shaped hot dog buns are horrible. It’s a lazy design that doesn’t work…it’s like the producers of these don’t care about the customers which should be the death of any product. The u-shaped hot dog bun was perfection in design, functionality, and taste. Making them with similar taste to Italian sweet bread would be heaven.

    1. Joe

      I used to eat a “house label” (Ralph’s groceries in Los Angeles) these back in the 80s. Loved them so much, but they seem to have been discontinued sometime in the 90s. Now I learned about Snuggles (which I think Ralph’s was copying), only to find Snuggles are gone too. Please bring them back!!!!

      1. Toufayan

        Hello Joe.
        We’re super excited to see a renewed interest in the product. We are working with our bakers (and some of our less interesting experts) to perhaps bring back a summer promotion that offers Snuggles! Keep the comments coming in and together we’ll make this a reality!

  22. Benjamin

    Yes, definitely bring these back. They are the only hot dog bun I would ever buy. Have them rack them with regular hot dog buns instead of in the deli section – they were always hard to find.

    1. Toufayan

      Hi Ron,
      We remember them too! They were called, Toufayan Snuggles. We don’t make them anymore, but we’ll mention your interest to the bakers and to the coordinators. If some others have an interest, perhaps we can bring this product back, or bake up something similar.
      Thanks again.

      1. LutherP

        Got my vote to bring them back. Can you tell me when you started making them? And when you stopped making. Curious about the history.

        1. Toufayan

          Hi Luther,
          It looks like they’ve been out of production for quite some time. The grocers seemed less and less interested and so many of them declined to restock that we halted production. Since there does seem to be interest, we’ll talk to our bakers and our grocers about making them again! please keep the comments coming!

          1. Roy Dobbins

            My entire family enjoyed Snuggles Hot Dog Fun Buns and would love to see them back in production and in Public’s in Florida or Kroger’s in Virginia. That was a great item, the bun did not bush open at the bottom, when you spread the top open to put the wiener or sausage in the bun.

          2. Sandi Wagner-Permoda

            I also have been looking for years them in every store . They were the best brat buns ever. Please bring them back to Michigan

      2. Brian G

        Bring back Snuggles, please! They are truly the best and there’s nothing else like them on the market. With a bit of advertising/promotion, these would easily be your top selling product and radically disrupt the hot dog buns industry!
