It's frustrating when you go to the store and buy a pack of hot dogs and have to buy two packs of hot dog buns because the hot dogs come in a 10 pack and the buns in an 8 pack, and you want to make sure everyone has a bun for their dog. Now you won't need to buy extra buns for the dogs!
Heinz Canada just launched a petition on Change.org to force companies to sell hot dogs and buns in an equal amount, according to Delish. Hot dogs tend to come in ten-packs, and buns usually come in eight-packs. And they think ten should be the new standard for both. However, there is a reason behind the mismatch. Hot dog companies started selling them in ten-packs in the 1940s, just because it's a round number. But bun companies sell eight-packs because the standard pan they've always baked them in fits four buns per row.
These days, they also have pans that fit five though. So there's no good reason THAT can't be the new modern standard. You can sign the petition by going to Change.org and searching for the "Heinz Hot Dog Pact." As of last night, it had about15,000 signatures.
I already signed!
