Food and Company Review: 1-2-3 Gluten Free

(I am not paid or given any incentive to write one way or the other. What you are about to read is from me to you; my honest opinion.)

 

Delicious boxed mixes that are easy to make, even for kids, yet they are delicious for every table as well as for many courses in a meal: main course, side dishes, and desserts. Each box is versatile and can be used in a variety of recipes offered on the 1-2-3 Gluten Free site or in ones you make up on your own. When I am able to get 7 or more recipes out of one single box of mix from a gluten-free company, and it tastes good, I’m really pleased.

I know of 14 current mixes, but out of these, there at least 142 versions of recipes thus far that I know of. My testers and I played a game of trying to come up with ten recipes using the site’s recipes as well as our own. Each recipe was delicious, many unique, and all very well-liked. (The site offered 80 additional ones.)

Founder Kim Ullner comes from a celiac family. Her sister was celiac, and as a child, Kim created recipes to help her face the challenges of her gluten-free diet. Later on, her niece and nephew were diagnosed, and soon Kim’s gluten-free pigs-in-a-blanket was a family hit. Kim has named many of her mixes after family members, and now that Kim is a mother of two, we can guarantee two new names will soon be on her newer mixes.

The mixes are very easy to make and require very few ingredients, all common to your home’s pantry. Each box offers double the size of most other brands. 1-2-3 Gluten Free products are all made in a facility free of wheat, gluten, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, and soy.

Their biscuits were light and fluffy and just how I wanted a biscuit to taste.  I also made mine without any dairy and they were perfect.

With this same box I made cinnamon buns, pigs-in-a-blanket, chicken and dumplings and roasted vegetable pizza.  I could have made more but I accepted the versatility of these products.


1-2-3 Gluten Free’s Aaron’s Favorite Rolls have the texture of a true roll, where one can “rip” out the insides (like kids love to do) instead of the all-too-common crumbled gluten-free alternative.

Let’s not forget the devilishly decadent brownies, silky, rich, and loaded with chocolate chunks. The pound cake, with a hint of lemon. Sugar and Spice Pan Bars, which are delicious with banana, sweet potato, or even zucchini added.


The prices are good. The servings per box are definitely greater than most companies offer and it all just tastes fresh as far as baked goods are concerned.

All their products are made in a gluten-free facility, are gluten-free, nut-free, peanut-free and egg and dairy (casein) free.  All but two are corn-free and all but one is soy-free.  Their labels are clear and easy to read.  Their packaging is smart.

1-2-3 Gluten Free is worthy of a well-written book describing their finest mixes and options. And don’t forget to look inside the box to find even more recipe options. They have a website offering many more recipes and welcome ideas.

Great mixes – terrific company.

  1. I want a roll or biscuit that tastes real – feels real and doesn’t crumble! My choice would be to try 1-2-3 Gluten Free’s Aaron’s Favorite Rolls .

  2. I would like to try the biscuit mix and I am looking forward to Chicken and dumplings this fall, something I have been missing. …..Thanks for this offer.

  3. I would LOVE to try the Devil’s Food Cake mix. I want to make some cupcakes that both my husband who is NOT gluten free & I can both enjoy.

  4. I would love to try the Biscuit Mix! I have not had Biscuits in such a long time. Biscuits with Breakfast would be divine! I also want to use the Biscuit Mix to make real old fashioned Southern Peach Cobbler. Ohhhh, that would be soooo yummy!

  5. My fiance has Celiac and we have tried many different mixes. I have tried a lot of Gluten Free food, and I can sympathize with people about how much of it does not have any flavor or taste very good. That is NOT the case with 1-2-3 Gluten Free mixes. I actually prefer the muffin mix to any other wheat-filled muffin. It is not easy to makes Gluten Free bakeries from scratch and it costs a lot of money to buy all of the different flours needed. 1-2-3 Gluten Free makes it easy, affordable, and delicious. I have tried many of their mixes, but I would love to try the biscuts and top them with a gluten free gravy! 🙂

  6. As the father of a daughter newly diagnosed with Celiac, I would love to serve her some biscuits, either as part of a big breakfast with fresh melon & strawberries (sliced with her new knife set!) or as dumpling in a veggie stew. Biscuit Mix, please!

  7. I got a package of the brownie mix and split them in two different batches. One with the regular recipe and with the second, I added instant coffee. They both turned out delicious!

  8. My daughter brought home the Southern Glory biscuit mix – without looking at the requirements – so I had to go back to get the cream and half & half. Wow! So glad I did! These were so good! Texture, flavor – everything! They are definitely on my go to list. Used half to make regular biscuits, and the rest went on the pot pie and they couldn’t have been better.
