Why God?! Avocado Buns Are a Thing and It's Low-Key Gross & Amazing at the Same Time?

If your Instagram feed lately hasn't been overcrowded with pictures of avocado toasts... what? How is that possible? Who are you?

Avocados are all the rage these days. From avocado toast to avocado protein shakes, there's pretty much no food that's safe from the avocado trend.

And, y'know what, that's fine, because avocados are hella delicious.

Have you had an avocado recently? Sit down and smear some of that sh*t on toast. Christ on a cracker, that's damn tasty.

Apparently the latest avocado trend is to kick out the gluten all together and replace buns with slices of avocado.

Okay, so we just defended the avocado a few seconds, but... what? Avocados are great and all, but they don't exactly seem like appropriate substitutes for burger buns.

While delicious, avocados are slippery things; plus, your fingernails will be stained with green after your lunch break, which doesn't sound very appealing.

We're all for more avocado all day every day, but maybe it would be best to just keep to avocado slices inside a regular burger―between two buns―the way it was intended.


Fans of the avocado bun say that it's the best way to go about utilizing the precious fruit, especially as it means cutting it horizontally as opposed to vertically.

It seems the avocado bun fad has been mainly circulating within the Instagram realm, so you won't be seeing any avocado instead of bread substitutes at your favorite burger joint anytime soon.


But, if you're feeling adventurous, and up to get your hands a little dirty, why not try an avocado bun burger at home? 

Make it meaty, make it veggie, make it vegan, make it whatever way you want. Live your life, make your own avocado choices.
