Nashville Hot Honey Chicken Sliders

Hello, Martin’s fans! We have some exciting news for you. In case you haven’t heard: we recently remixed our Dinner and Party Potato Rolls recipe to include a sweeter flavor profile with the same soft, pillowy texture you know and love.

Our Dinner and Party Potato Rolls have a long history. Martin’s Dinner Potato Rolls were our earliest product, ever since first being distributed at farmer’s markets in 1955 and hitting grocery store shelves in 1965. Martin’s Party Potato Rolls were originally sold as “Half Size” Dinner Rolls, and were found to be the perfect size for appetizers and party sandwiches.

Now, Martin’s is thrilled to offer customers a sweeter version of these two long-time favorites. Sweet rolls are becoming increasingly popular across the country, and our new products have everything that is already raved about in Martin’s Potato Rolls—fluffy texture, high-quality ingredients, and great taste—now just a little sweeter! As with all of our products, Martin’s uses only the best ingredients, such as high protein wheat flour, potatoes, nonfat milk, real butter, and pure cane sugar, to make our new Sweet Dinner and Sweet Party Potato Rolls.

As of October 17, you can find Martin’s NEW Sweet Dinner and Sweet Party Potato Rolls in a grocery store near you! Visit to find your nearest location.

We are so excited to be able to offer our fans and customers these new and improved products, and just in time for the holiday season! We hope you’ll enjoy the versatility of our new Sweet Rolls and try them as a side, sandwich, snack, appetizer, or dessert—however you please!

P.S.—Learn how you can unlock a free sample of one of these new products at the bottom of this blog.
