Product Review: Kinnikinnick Soft Hamburger Buns

Posted on | April 1, 2012 | 2 Comments

There is nothing like a good hamburger. Sadly, I haven”t had a really good hamburger with a really good gluten free hamburger bun since I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I would either make do with sub par gluten free bread, or wrap my burger in lettuce. When Kinnikinnick came out with this new hamburger bun  to replace their old buns, I thought, why not give it a try?  Especially since Kinnikinnick sent some samples to taste.  Free- even better!

In each package retails for $4.59, and comes with four buns. Kinnikinnick recommends you store them frozen, or they may be stored fresh on the countertop for a day or two. They are supposed to be soft enough that after they defrost they may be consumed with no toasting or special preparation.  These buns are  not pre-sliced so all you need to do is slice them when to is time to eat.

When my burger was done grilling,  I popped one Kinnikinnick hamburger bun in the microwave mobile casino for 45 seconds. It was the perfect time. The bun was no longer cold, but still soft and evenly defrosted. I waited for the bun to cool, then sliced it in two. It is very important to let the bun cool after removing from the microwave, because when I tried to slice it right out of the microwave and it just smushed. It actually looks like a gluten hamburger bun!

I went all out and added onion, tomato, pickle, cheese, lettuce, and ketchup. Even though the lettuce was ripped funny, I still think this burger looks amazing! I took a bite and was in love. The bun is soft, and squished down a bit; just like I would expect a bun from McDonalds to do. The smell of the bun actually reminded me of McDonalds. Although the bun is soft, it didn”t squish into nothing. It still held it”s shape, and my burger. It kept it”s shape to the very last bite. There is not distinct taste to the bun, it lets the meat and condiments do the talking.

I am in love with Kinninnick”s new soft hamburger bun. Try these as soon as you can!

    Thanks for the review-we will have to give them a try! How would you say it compares to Udi’s gluten free hamburger buns?

    I have tried these as well and LOVED them. Definitely the best hamburger bun out there–less dry than Udi’s. Just like a “real” hamburger bun!
