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 !
Judy Richey – October 27, 2018:
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!
Sandy – February 5, 2019:
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.
Neil Schuman – February 9, 2019:
Please bring them back. The sooner, the better.
Colleen – February 12, 2019:
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.
Dawn – February 19, 2019:
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!!!!
Ann – February 25, 2019:
My daughter and I are so sad these have been discontinued. They are truly the best GF buns we’ve ever found. Please bring them back. 🙂
Anna – March 12, 2019:
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!
Kebbie – March 23, 2019:
So sad to hear these were discontinued
Please bring them back! They were amazing and a staple in our house
Tami – March 30, 2019:
I too am disappointed Trader Joe’s hamburger buns were discontinued. Please bring them back!
Jane – April 5, 2019:
These were the absolute BEST GF Buns. I’ve wasted so much money trying other brands. Please bring back!
Alex – May 3, 2019:
Best GF Buns.
Life is tough for those who have to live without gluten. Please get them back!
Rebecca Kremer – May 9, 2019:
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.
Andrea – June 12, 2019:
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.
Linda – July 2, 2019:
Please bring back the GF hamburger rolls. They were the best!
Anonymous – August 6, 2019:
Please bring back the GF hamburger buns with the sesame seeds. They were perfect.
mary ellen – September 1, 2019:
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.
Joel – September 19, 2019:
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.
Trish McGauly – September 25, 2019:
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back your gluten free hamburger buns! They were the best! Your gluten free/celiac customers need them
Ron Guff – October 3, 2019:
they were by far the best gluten free buns i had. franz bakery are the next best but cant get them where I live..dissapointed
Margo – October 6, 2019:
The best option BUT Trader Joe’s considers this a seasonal item. VERY disappointing that they aren’t available year round. Celiac disease isn’t seasonal.
Sandra Loy-Ng – November 18, 2019:
Bring them back I have celiac disease and I need to have my hamburger buns back. I love these.
Denise – November 21, 2019:
Please bring the buns back!! For people on restricted diets, these r a real treat! Pretty Please!
