    :

    These are okay — obviously being gluten-free, they don’ compare in taste or texture to “real” hamburger buns (ie: those made with wheat). Pretty dry and crumbly; not soft and firm like a good bun would be. That said, if you are strictly gluten-free, these are definitely better than nothing. FOR being gluten-free they’re not particularly bad, but they’re not one of those gluten-free foods that you can give your non-GF friends and say “You’ll never believe this is gluten-free!”

    These are good if you spread butter (or substitute) and broil them until toasted. Then the bun becomes softer and less dry. So much better than eating the hamburger without the bun!

    These buns are so amazing toasted that even my husband, who does not need to be gluten free, loves them. All of our family and friends love them! We even eat them alone with butter and use them for sandwiches. Like any gluten free bread or bagel, they are better toasted. Best gluten free hamburger buns yet! It’s almost a shame to call them hamburger buns because they are great with everything.

    The ones pictured above are NOT the ones they sell now. The new GF hamburger buns are HORRIBLE!!! Trader Joes is very disappointing in general for GF bread products. Trader Joes is an awesome store, but corporate needs to notice just how bad their GF bread options are.

    The new GF hamburger buns (though they look more like hamburger buns than the older recipe) are tasteless and dry. Heating them does not help. The old recipe if grilled lightly became soft and tasty. Unfortunately, I’ve stopped buying these.

    I really like these. They’re the best gluten free buns I’ve found. To my surprise I went to get more today and found they don’t carry till bbq season. It’s always bbq season in California. I’m so disappointed !

    These buns are the best on the market! Toasted, they were the closest to a “real” bun I’ve had! I just drov3 an hour to my nearest Trader Joe’s to find that they discontinued making and selling them…I’m so SAD
    Please consider bringing them back!

    I have found these GF buns to be the best I have tasted. I am very disappointed to hear they have been discontinued.

    Seconding Sandy, I thought TJ’s GF hamburger buns were the best I’ve tried since diagnosis. I was able to get 2 packs in before they were discontinued.

    If TJ pulls their boxed GF mac n cheese, I will quite literally have no reason to go there any more. Those two things are the only GF products they have that are good enough (in my opinion) to justify the long drive it takes to get to the closest one.

    I have tried so many brands of gluten free buns and these are the best tasting and have the best texture of any. I’m so sad to hear they have been discontinued.

    these are the best hamburger buns in the world. Referring to the beautiful soft Sesame seeded ones. I’ve not been able to get them for a month. Some of my friends said they’ve been discontinued. Others have been informed that they are seasonal and will be back for summer. My local store can’t tell me why they don’t have them but can say they will be back in May. Another person indicated they’ve been told by their store that Trader Joe’s is switching sources for them. I hope and pray that they are the same and just as delicious and that they bring them back soon. Celiacs is not a seasonal condition so it would be nice if the Buns were available year-round. If they come back and they are the same as they were I’ll make sure I stock up before winter next time and put them in the freezer.

    After too many failed attempts to find a decent Gluten Free hamburger bun (not to mention hot dog!), I thought I’d died and gone to heaven after having discovered TJ’s version. Am totally crushed and amazed that I hear they are discontinued. Traveled miles to a number of TJ locations and wondered why I couldn’t find any GF buns. Okay, TJ, to be the one place that had provided a good GF bun, please don’t let all of us non-G folks down – return the GF bun!!!!

    I just recently had discovered these a few months ago and they were amazing! So disappointed to find out today that they are discontinued from your Cleveland / Beachwood location. Please bring them back Trader Joe’s!

    Best gluten free buns and we are seriously missing them. They kept well in the freezer and I would remove them when needed; place on a paper towel in the microwave and use the defrost feature to arrive at soft, moist, yummy sesame seed buns.

    These were the best. Have been going to TJ’s to find them every few weeks and thought they were out of stock until a phone call told me discontinued. So upsetting! Fjnally found an amazing bun & they’re not carrying them anymore. Trying hard to find the undercover bakery. Not easy! Might try Canyon’s and compare but not sure ingredient list is the same.

    I’ve heard that they weren’t discontinued, but are not considered seasonal. They were at our TJ’s store this spring/summer (burger/grilling season?) Not sure if they’ll still be there in the fall.

    These are the best tasting GF buns I’ve had and made special 25 minute trips to TJ’s just for these. To add they were only $3.50, where now I pay $5.99 at another store for buns that are not as good.
