As we write this, we’re enjoying our fifth flavor of swirly buns from Just Buns, a homey family business that aims to provide Americans with a better breakfast pastry (using Mama’s decades-old swirly bun recipe).

Send a box of the handmade, all-natural buns as a gift. Unlike the ginormous Cinnabon, here’s a more elegant bun that eschews the cloying icing and is just sweet enough for breakfast.

Each swirly bun is shrink-wrapped for freshness. Five days later, they’re still moist and soft—we don’t even need to give them a quick nudge in the microwave.

The menu lists 25 flavors, from Nutella and Peanut Butter and Chocolate (or Peanut Butter and Jelly) to savory varieties, such as Garlic & Parmesan and Onion & Parmesan. So far we’ve tried Almond, Blueberry, Black & White (dark and white chocolate), Chocolate, Cinnamon & Brown Sugar (the most popular flavor), and Toffee.

In addition to the Cinnamon, we’ve become a devoted fan of the Chocolate and Black & White varieties—a superior substitute for pain au chocolate that has all of the chocolate without the flaky crumb cascade of a croissant. Marzipan lovers will like the Almond variety—really almond marzipan, with a generous marzipan filling.

Now we’ve got to go back for more: the two Peanut Butter flavors, Raspberry, Chocolate Coconut and the two savory swirlies. We keep them in the freezer and restore them to swirly goodness in the microwave (20 seconds).

E-commerce is not yet up and running, so you can phone in an order or leave your request via the Contact Us form on the website.

Or, better yet, enter to win a dozen of the swirly buns in this week’s Gourmet Giveaway contest.
