There is a new food craze in English markets, and they’re called “heavy fired buns.
Funny, that was my nickname in high school.
Anyway, the buns are burned and charred in the market, and apparently, English customers cannot get enough of them.
The “heavy fired” roll has apparently been a staple of Scottish bakeries for several decades. They are supposed to have an overcooked, black crust and be airy and slightly chewy inside, and while some people describe them as addictive, delicious, or spot-on, their charred interior puts a lot of people off. A heated debate between the two camps recently went viral on social media, after photos of some heavy-fired buns sold at a market in Manchester started doing the rounds online.
However, some people either couldn’t imagine putting a charred bread bun anywhere near their mouth or warned about the danger of eating burnt food in general, due to it reportedly being carcinogenic.
Eh, all the carbon is probably good for ya… or it’ll kill ya.
