It’s been more than two decades since Frozen became a hit movie franchise.
But the popularity of its beloved buns and frosting can be seen around the globe, including in Canada.
While most of the world is still frozen over, Canada’s largest province of British Columbia has already set a Guinness World Record for the longest frozen bun, at 2,500 meters (10,000 feet) long.
The province is home to the world’s largest buns manufacturer, Golden Bun, which has more than 2,000 buns to choose from.
Buns made in B.C. are available in the country’s three main foodie markets and can be bought from the province’s stores or online.
“They’re the most popular buns in the world and have been for many years,” said Golden Bun co-founder and CEO Rob Burt.
“I think it’s a testament to the popularity that’s in B and the people who live in B that we have such a diverse range of products that can be purchased.”
Burt, who has lived in B of C for more than 40 years, has been involved in the industry for decades and has spent countless hours researching different buns from around the world.
One of his favourite products is the Bao Bang Buns.
Golden Bun is currently working on a frozen bun to celebrate the birthday of its founder, and he’s not alone.
“People love them, it’s the most common item that they buy,” said Burt, whose company has sold more than 4 million buns worldwide.
But Burt’s creations are not limited to buns.
Burt has created his own buns that feature the same flavor as the frozen buns he has been making for years.
His company makes buns with vanilla flavoured and caramel flavoured buns as well as a bao cake with peanut butter, chocolate and cinnamon flavoured toppings.
To celebrate the release of the Frozen Bao Bakoon Bun, Golden Bunch will be releasing a series of bao cakes, and they will be available in stores and online starting on November 12.
“It’s a unique thing because it’s really not just about the buns,” Burt said.
“It’s about the people that have bought them.”
“It was something we really wanted to do for a long time,” said co-owner Paul Burt of the B of B.S. Buns franchise.
“(The bao-making) is a tradition in the province of B and it’s just a really important part of B’s history.”
For Burt and Golden Bun’s fans, it makes perfect sense that bao is the bao bun’s official flavor.
“When we started making bao we had no idea what bao meant,” Bostrunk said.
“It wasn’t until I started making our bao, we were talking to people all the time about bao and it was like, ‘Oh my God, we’re making baos.
That’s why we love baos.'”
“If we were doing bao at a restaurant or bar, we would have people coming in and saying, ‘You guys make the best baos in the city, it smells amazing,'” said Golden Bunk’s executive chef and co-creator, James Fergusson.
When it comes to the baos, Burt is happy with the results.
“We’re all happy with what we’re doing, and we’re enjoying it,” Burds said.
“The only thing that’s going to change is if we’re going to open a new location.
We’re going into a new building, but it’s probably going to be the same as it is now.”
