**Note from Chad:
21: Hot Dogs traditionally come in packs of 10, while buns come in packs of 8. "Bun Size Franks" became popular in the late 1980's, where the number of dogs matched the number of buns at 8. I'm going to give myself the point for 10, and I suggest everyone else do the same:

EDIT: Well, damnit. The question asks about buns, not dogs. I misread it.
