* These hot dog buns were tasty. But, they tasted exactly like the Great Low Carb Bread Co.'s Hamburger Buns. Not a bad thing, per se. Same taste, different shape. But, the richness of the bread takes on a slightly different effect combined with a hot dog.
I think we're accustomed to those fluffy, light, airy hot dog buns of summers past, and these are not them. They are quite dense and filling, and can take away the taste of the hot dog more readily than the Hamburger Bun does for the burger.
That said, they were still enjoyable. I would reorder. But, one hot dog bun per meal is quite enough. These buns would probably be better served as a roll for a sausage, or shaved steak.
* These really don't taste a whole lot like bread but they are a great vehicle for holding your dog, brat or sausage nice and cozy and keeps the relish, onions and whatever else you like where it's suppose to be! I need them in my freezer!
* Generally speaking, diabetics like myself eat their sausages without bread or buns, but on occasion a traditional hot dog in a bun makes a good portable meal, especially when loaded Chicago style. For this reason I keep a package of these hot dog buns in the freezer, so one can be defrosted in the microwave and toasted in the toaster oven as the occasion arises. It's nice to have that option. They are fine for the job, though not quite as good as "real" ones, which is why I rate them four out of five.
* These hot dog buns filled the bill for our 4th of July cookout. You definitely need bun length hot dogs for these buns. I split down the middle and toasted with butter in a skillet. They are a bit chewy, like a bagel, but for 2 net carbs I'm not complaining. Netrition is the best!
* These buns are excellent as a low carb alternative. They are soft but have a spongier, chewier texture. I like to lightly toast them. All the GLCB company products are good as long as they are understood to be substitutes and not exact replacements for the starchy high carb breads. Recommended!
* I'm type 2 diabetic and have to eat low carb now. Never tried low carb bread before ordering this and the cinnamon bread. The buns are dense, chewy and spongy with flax seeds throughout but taste OK. Not the same as a regular hot dog bun but a good substitute for them. I also split one and used it to make a French bread pizza. It was excellent for this use and made a great individual pizza crust!
