A versatile, tasty bun!

Usually my family buys the Costco Kirkland Signature Ciabatta Buns, but during the last trip to Costco I noticed that they also had “seven grain Ciabatta buns” so I grabbed a bag to review.
These buns taste quite a bit different than the other Costco Kirkland Signature Ciabatta Buns, in a good way! They definitely have more of a hearty multigrain taste. They’re soft and spongey on the inside, slightly dense and a little crispy on the outside! They also have a few seeds in them which adds to the texture! They’re very sturdy so they make a wonderful bun for hamburgers, sandwiches or even to serve with spinach dip.
The big bag of buns cost $5.49 Canadian which seems very reasonable to me for about 18 buns.
As I stated previously these buns could be served numerous ways, just plain with butter, as a sandwich, cut up and with a dip, with pulled pork or even as hamburger buns. It’s convenient to have a big bag of buns like these at home in the freezer for anytime you need them. They freeze really well and I recommend immediately freezing them after purchasing! Unless you plan to use the whole bag right away.
Each bun is 210 calories, two grams of fat, eight grams of protein, one gram of sugar, three grams of fibre and 450 mg of sodium. That's a pretty decent amount of protein for a bun! The sodium is definitely on the higher side. The ingredients list does state that the buns contain soy and sulfites.
I would definitely repurchase these buns from Costco. They’re delicious, convenient and versatile.
