Valentine's Day Gift Giving Guide -- Gifts for All -- Just Buns' Famous Swirly Buns (Review)

Don't these swirly buns look delicious?  Well, they were.  I was sent a sampler box of these handmade pastries to sample and write a review on, thanks to shop owner Dana Reyes.  I couldn't believe how fresh these buns tastes, even after being packaged and shipped to me.  After warming in the microwave for 10-15 seconds, I cut into the first swirly bun I chose to sample, raspberry almond.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the right amount of filling that was added to these buns.  When you think of sweet buns, you expect overly sweet pastries.  But, this was not the case with Just Buns' swirly buns.  Bite after bite, I was able to detect the raspberry and almond filling, and not an excess sugary taste.  The only negative thing that I can say about these buns is that you will get full halfway through this tasty treat.  I ended up having to share it with my husband, as I didn't want the leftovers to go to waste.  Yes, I know what you are saying, "This is not a negative."  I know, but when it comes to enjoying handmade pastries, I usually don't like to share. :-)

Just look at some of the amazing swirly bun flavors Just Buns has to offer:

In the end, I ended up sharing the sampling of swirly buns with my husband and daughter, Savannah.  They preferred to enjoy these buns for breakfast, while I would warm one up at night and have with tea, as a way to unwind.  We enjoyed every flavor sent our way, especially the Nutella, Raspberry Almond and cinnamon and brown sugar.  I can't wait to order these buns in the future, as I am eager to try the cranberry walnut and cherry swirly buns.

And, with Valentine's Day around the corner, why not order a sampling of swirly buns from Just Buns.  They ship nationwide, and arrive to your door fresh and ready to eat in seconds.  If you can't finish the buns, you can always freeze for a later date.  Click here to order online now.  You can get 12 buns for only $22.00.  This would make for a surprise dessert on Valentine's Day.
