I'll start out with WOW! The buns are very very good. It truly is hard to believe that they have 0 net carbs and very low as in around 70 calories. They taste good, look good and hold together very well. They are a bit dry but steaming in a wet paper towel helps a bunch. I steam them to get them warm then toast lightly in a hot frying pan using mayo instead of butter. Browns nicely and taste fantastic. They are a bit pricey but worth it! Thank you SmartBun, keep cranking out the tasty products for all us low-carb'ers. Shout out to Netrition.com for the always fast shipping and well packaged deliveries.
I had seen these buns before and had already tried the “Smart cakes” and enjoyed them. I got tired of eating “Lettuce wrap burgers” and wanted a real “Bun” that wouldn’t cost me a lot of WW points or ingredients I didn’t want. So I decided to try these after reading the reviews and So glad that I did! They totally do the job of allowing me to enjoy a “Real” burger during the week while sticking to a healthy eating plan! Will certainly purchase again and do recommend these.

I follow a ketogenic lifestyle, and when I want a bun for my homemade, grass-fed burger topped with extra bacon and cheese, this is what I reach for! I love that I can keep them in my freezer and use when needed; I generally grill or toast them, then slather them with high-quality butter (part of my keto lifestyle.) Along with the delicious burger and sugar-free condiments, I think this bun is as good, if not BETTER THAN, a standard/ typical carbohydrate filled bun purchased from the grocery store. I LOVE these buns, don't find them "sweet" at all, and highly recommend them if you are following a low-carbohydrate lifestyle.
This was the bun I've been looking for since starting keto! This is the closest thing I've came to a normal bun. Very fresh and held together!! Pricey but maybe someday they will come down in price as they get more popular.
OK, All I have to say is someone is lying. There is no way that something this moist, this flavorful, this delicious, is only 38 calories and 0 netcarbs. I mean, come on, who are they trying to kid. I ordered just a pack of the cinnamon cakes after reading everyone else's great reviews. As soon as I got them in I took one bite and immediately ordered 2 more cases. But due to the weekend I am going to have to wait a whole week to get them in. So as I was thinking about that dilemma I thought I would order another case and have it rushed.........they are now currently out of stock. I will need to keep a standing order for these. I hope they get some additional flavors though. Don't like coconut and not a big fan of chocolate so I don't know if I will try either of those (maybe the chocolate). But I would definitely be interested in trying a Lemon or vanilla or birthday cake or gingerbread.
