It also has an entire section of cookware should you need some super smart utensils, pots, or prep tools.

Epicure is on a mission to put good food on everyone’s table. They define “good food” as that with whole, natural ingredients and mindful of sugar, fat, and salt. Inspiring others to eat consciously, their meal, dessert, and drink mixes may skimp on preservatives, but they never skimp on flavor! Many of their products are Kosher, Halal, and vegan, while all of them are gluten-free. 85% of their meals are non-GMO and you’ll find a ton of organic ingredients packed inside.
**A note on how gluten-free their food really is: Epicure’s products are triple-tested to ensure they are 100% gluten-free. They are also made in a peanut-free facility.
Epicure has a collection of meal solutions, desserts, drinks, and cookware in their collection, providing not only the food but also the means to cook it. I should note here that their meal solutions aren’t fully ready to heat and eat meals–they’re package mixes of delicious spices and nutritious ingredients that you cook with meat, veggies, and healthy grains. Let’s take a look at their selection.
Epicure Meal Solutions Review
Love cooking but don’t have the time? Want easy meals with great ingredients? These classic favorites are sure to tickle your fancy. Epicure has a wide range of tasty meal mixes to whip up lunch and dinner in a pinch. Here are a few of their best-sellers:
Honey Garlic Meatball Seasoning Review
One of the most popular items in the Meal Solutions categories is the Honey Garlic Meatball Seasoning. Perfect to create sweet and savory meatballs to serve on top of mashed potatoes or as a perfect addition to game day, this delicious mix is made with organic tamari and organic coconut sugar to create an umami-meets-lick-smacking flavor. A pack of 3x 3.5 oz packets is $13.95.
Alfredo Sauce Mix Review
Another popular pick is the Alfredo Sauce Mix. Traditional store-bought Alfredo sauces are seldom gluten-free, so I appreciate that this one is. Plus, since it’s a dry powder, it stores easily in your pantry and won’t take up a lot of space. Grab a pack of 3 for $13.95.
Mac & Cheese Seasoning Review
One of the most popular recipes of all? It’s Mac & Cheese, which, when I think about it is really a no-brainer. This powder mix turns into a lusciously creamy sauce with your choice of milk, pasta, and butter. The ingredients are simple and this product is both nut-free and kosher. Like the other two products in this section of my Epicure review, you can get 3 packs of this cheesy mix for $13.95.
Epicure Desserts & Baking Review
What’s dinner without a little dessert? Epicure has a tantalizing collection of baking spices and dessert mixes to help you whip up something sweet without worrying about overindulging. Some fan-favorites include:
Happy Birthday Cake Review
Made with surprisingly simple ingredients, this gluten-free cake bakes up just like the traditional boxcakes you used to eat. The main difference? Instead of 70 ingredients, it has only 7. Shoppers say it bakes up great and is yummy. What more could you ask for? Oh, the Happy Birthday Cake is also vegan, non-GMO, and nut-free. Grab a 2-pack for $13.
Sweet Banana Bread & Muffin Mix Review
There’s nothing quite like enjoying a slice of banana bread on a cool fall morning. This gluten-free, vegan Sweet Banana Bread & Muffin mix is super simple and can even be baked in the microwave. With just 6 grams of sugar per serving, it’s the perfect level of sweetness and won’t make you think you’ve eaten cake for breakfast. A 2-pack is $13.
Summer Berry Sweet Dip Mix Review
Made with real raspberries and strawberries, the Summer Berry Sweet Did Mix is light and fruity, hinted with the flavors of hibiscus and rooibos tea. To make the perfect, low-sugar dip, combine it with the yogurt of your choosing and enjoy it with fresh fruit or create ice pops. Yum! A 4.3 oz jar is $10.50.
Epicure Drinks Review
Epicure’s drink selection is everything you would want it to be. It included seasonal favorites, along with cocktail mixes, latte blends, and teas. Yes–even the most trendy drinks on this menu including the ever-loved PSL. Some customer favorites include:
Pina Colada Mix Review
Dreamy coconut cream blends with tangy lime and sweet pineapple for a refreshing treat. Enjoy with or without alcohol! A 4.1 oz jar of Pina Colada Mix is on sale for $7.35 (normally $10.50).
Elderflower Cordial Herbal Tea Blend Review
Talk about refreshing! This sweet, uniquely flavored tea blend is perfect for sipping on the patio. Grab a packet of 20 tea bags of Elderflower Cordial Herbal Tea Blend for $15.50.
Blue Butterly Herbal Tea Blend Review
If you’re one for trends, you’re going to love this Blue Buttlerfly Herbal Tea Blend. Naturally blue from the butterfly pea flower, this fun drink is good for you and tastes great. 20 bags are $15.50.
Epicure Cookware Review
Epicure has a fun collection of stainless steel and silicone cookware. Including everything you need to whip up a delicious meal or dessert, you’ll find baking trays, air frothers, mandolins, and Woks in this collection. I’ll list a few of their most popular picks below.
- Multipurpose Steamer. So practical. Get it for $63.
- Air Frother. The best at whipping up frothy lattes without the expensive espresso machine! This one’s $24.95.
- Grill Boss Skewers. Grilling meat with these sturdy stainless steel skewers is just so much easier. Plus, they’re reusable and cut down on waste. A set of 6 is $34.95.
Who Is Epicure For?
Epicure is a fantastic option for busy families who want a home-cooked, delicious meal but don’t always have the time. Since all of their meals are gluten-free and free from artificial ingredients, they’re something you can feel good about eating and serving to your kids. If you like cooking or would like to learn to cook but don’t want to mess around with meal planning and recipe hunting, Epicure is an excellent option.
Epicure Reviews: What Do Customers Think?
Almost every product on Epicure.com has ample feedback, and as a reviewer, I appreciate all the feedback I can find. It helps me find out exactly what customers think about the brand and what its products taste like. I’ll highlight a few of the best-sellers on the brand’s website here first in this section of my Epicure review.
- Crispy & Crunchy Coating Mix (Pack of 3): 4.8/5 stars, 53 reviews
- Butter Chicken Seasoning: 4.8/5 stars, 53 reviews
- Beef & Broccoli Stirfry: 4.9/5 stars, 51 reviews
- Honey Garlic Meatball Seasoning: 5/5 stars, 71 reviews
Of the Crispy Crunchy Coating, one shopper wrote, “So good that we are looking forward to cooking this chicken meal once again,” while another said, “All the other GF coatings get mushy but these stay crunchy and taste great!”
As a gluten-intolerant person, your options are limited for crispy coatings. It’s nice to know that this one is truly crispy and delicious!
Of the Butter Chicken Seasoning, one home cook wrote, “My family loves this sauce. It’s not too spicy for kids and we always add carrots and broccoli to the dish. Packs a flavour punch that will keep you coming back for seconds and thirds!”–another excellent message that Epicure makes delicious meal packs!
On ChickAdvisor.com, quite a few of Epicure’s products have been reviewed. Let’s take a look at the 3 Onion Dip Mix which had a 4.8/5 star score among 17 reviews. By the way, 100% of them said they loved it, but here’s one piece of feedback for a little more information:
“This product is so fresh and tastes like you just chopped up fresh onions. Only 5 mg of sodium, in comparison to other onion soup mix products that have approximately 650 mg of sodium in 1/4 of one packet. This is a must have for everyday cooking!”
It’s so difficult to find a flavor-enhancing product with minimal sodium. Epicure for the win!
In an Epicure review on a blog called The Heart Dietician, the author says, “If your goal is to get everyone at the table at the same time, enjoy the same meal on days when you need to work late or drive the kids places… you need shortcuts like Epicure to help.”
The Heart Dietician approaches their Epicure review from the standpoint of saving time and money. It’s cheaper and healthier than takeout, it’s something easy to cook in 15 minutes when you come home after a long day, and it tastes great.
There appears to be a lot going for Epicure according to its many customers, and while you won’t eliminate grocery shopping altogether (you still need to buy the meat and veggies), it will pull your meals together and will even help you meal plan for the week.
Is Epicure Legit?
Epicure is 100% legit. There are some comments about the way Epicure is structured (anyone can sign up to be an Epicure Ambassador to earn money and receive discounts), but you can also purchase directly from their website without a middleman involved. There’s nothing fishy about this brand though. Its meal solutions are tasty and the ingredients are great.
Is Epicure Worth It?
While I don’t personally suffer from a gluten allergy, I know many that do. I also know how extreme gluten allergies can be and how important it is to be 100% sure that food is 100% gluten-free. I appreciate that about Epicure. With a wide range of options for all types of diets, they make it super easy to follow a gluten-free diet without the need to religiously check labels in the grocery store.
Something else I love? How clean their meals, desserts, and drinks are. Limiting processed food and being conscious about ingredients often means eating blandly. Epicure proves that doesn’t have to be the case. What’s more, their meals are actually delicious and packed with a blend of healthy, celiac-safe spices. In other words, yes I do believe that Epicure is worth it if you’re gluten-intolerant or simply looking to eat better.
