At over two bucks? My ass is hitting Wendy's for the JBC.

Then again last time I had the whopper it waswet 2 for 5 bucks and came out to about 12 or 1300 calories. The same price in Wendy's JBC maybe net 7 or 800?

I make regular-sized burgers and serve them on slider buns.  Nobody's ever said, "You know what would have made that burger perfect?  More bun."

Yeah, but the JBCs are tiny compared to a whopper. And a JBC is just not worth the 2 farking fiddy they charge now.

I've only been there once, but my impression is that the Japanese are a bit odd.

I can't imagine that the beef is so good that it stands alone as being delicious (hence all the sauce options), and assuming 1/4lb patties, $8.80/lb is expensive, or at least before "covid beef" where good ground beef costs as much as tri-tip used to.
I just see this as another marketing fad to boost revenue.

This.

Man, a good bun is like a good pizza crust - people don't pay attention to it for the most part, but it makes a HUGE difference.

I would. A proper burger has a bun that almost, but not quite, covers the entire burger and toppings.

I'm on team buns. (heh)

A good bun that is properly sized can turn a sloppy slippery burger into a portable lunch powerhouse with a smooth, clean finish and no need for a napkin.

I may have bumped my head last night. I have a slight nosebleed and am severely confused by what this is, and now Japan in general.

Oh I'm definitelya bun man. Love a good Hawaiian bun. Also a sucker for...pretzel buns.

maaan, ALDI used to have L'oven (I think it's one of their own-brands?) NE-style split-top hawaiian hotdog buns, and also hawaiian hamburger buns. but even pre-plague-era, their stores near us stopped carrying anything but the little square dinner-roll sized ones - which are farking great for sliders or like South Asian street food stuff, but that's about it - altho' since the rolls come halfway stuck together, it kinda-sorta works for hotdogs.

I'd give the bagels a shot. I mean worst case, the sandwich idea sucks and you're stuck doing lox and cream cheese. That'd be a real farking shame right there...

I'm lucky that my closest Kroger is one of the fancy fark ones that caters to the McMansion neighborhood just to the north of mine. They have killer, full-sized Hawaiian buns. Their produce section is also surprisingly good: they have fresh habaneros, turmeric root, shishiato peppers, Thai chilis about half the time, etc. Their fruit section is still sorely lacking though.

I can always count on you for the Aldi finds. We don't have a Trader Joe's in town, so Aldi is my go-to for similar products. I haven't had their Hawaiian rollls, but the bagels are great. I'll do a plain w/their light cream cheese and 'everything seasoning' now and then and it's great.

we're usually not big on bagels (see below) - but if I see those Hawaiian ones, man you better believe we'll try it. ours still has plenty of soft cheeses for that vehicle, but no more cheap lox (they didn't even 2-3-4x the price, it's simply... gone.)

I like it 'cos it's quirky and not quite as "super" as the usual supermarche. and (much like Traitor Joes - 'cos we here are ditto lacking one) just a surprising amount of reasonably priced and consistent products you don't otherwise see.

my wife loves the low-calorie whole wheat bread; and now she pretty much won't use tinned coffee, dry creamer, and bulk stevia powder from anywhere else. we both love the aisle of chocolate, but thank-glob they moved it away from directly in front of the entrance lololol, that was way too dangerous!

there's also a new(-ish-to-us) LiDL in town. I'd joked that, "LiDL is like the ghetto version of ALDI. except... ALDI is also the ghetto version of ALDI?!") - but man I do have to get back there for the crazy discount frozen salmon from last time.

Yah, Aldi has always been consistent for me on their deli meats, an amazing cheese variety, and even stupid simple things like paper plates and tissue. People seem to knock them as a 'poor store', but damn I have found some deals and not only that, but good quality, too.

Do not have a Lidl in our area but I swear we shopped at one when I was a young blodyholy back in Ontario.

Restating my original premise doesn't make it incorrect.

Not to be obtuse, but I repeated nothing, I merely pointed out what was probably lacking.
I don't recall saying that your bun observations or conversations were incorrect either.
