Wantsumeaux Gumbeaux Mix

(42 customer reviews)


With Wantsumeaux Gumbeaux Mix, you will end up with four servings of Gumbo, ready to serve in about 45 minutes.  But it will taste like you have been in the kitchen all day.  Just add your own chicken broth and your protein of choice.  Chicken and sausage is a popular choice, and so is seafood with shrimp, crab meat, and maybe even crawfish tail meat.  Or perhaps even a mélange of some other combination.  That is the beauty of making Gumbo!

Inside each package of Wantsumeaux Gumbeaux Mix are three smaller packs:  (1) with veggies, (1) with our unique, dry roux mix, and (1) with WG Seasoning.  We keep the seasoning separate so you can add as much or as little as you prefer to make your Gumbo as mild or as spicy as you like it.  Serve it over rice, riced cauliflower, Quinoa, or your grain of choice.  No one will know it’s gluten-free… unless you tell them.  It’s just that good!

Also available in Family Size

    Made a few bowls in my life. I even lived in New Orleans. This is as close as it gets without the fuss! Great pot of gumbo! I’ll definitely be back for more!

    • Susan Armand (verified owner)

      Thank you for that wonderful review! Everything you said is exactly what we strive to do. We appreciate you!

  2. Mark E Vollmering (verified owner)

    Hello, I love gumbo and have been making it for years. It’s a long process. Not with this. Made this in an hour on Sunday night and it was great! Thank you!

    • Susan Armand (verified owner)

      Thank you for the great compliment! It means so much to us to hear from people that know how to make gumbo and compare what they know to our product. Pass us on to your friends and family!

  3. Patricia Arthur (verified owner)

    Can’t believe how good this is AND gluten-free! We added cooked onion, celery, and bell peppers to the pot since we wanted lots of veggies. Then followed the directions on package. I added half the spice mix into the pot and put the rest aside and invited my dear spouse to douse away since he likes super spicy 🌶 stuff. Excellent. I just ordered 4 more packages.

    • Susan Armand (verified owner)

      We are so very happy you liked the gumbo and that you ordered more! Please take a picture of your next pot/bowl and send us an email so we can add it to our website and social media. Pass the word!!

  4. Scott Villarreal-Dowlearn

    As someone who started cooking gumbo in his grandaddies kitchen at the at of 5, I cannot believe how good this is. It’s unfair to all of us who has felt like our arm was gonna fall off as beads of sweat rolled down our faces as we babysat our roux. Now I’m not saying it’s better than my gumbo but it is a solid second place and if I’m honest I believe I’ll be using Wantsumeaux Gumbeaux as my go to except on those rare special occasions.
    I can’t wrap my mind around how an authentic gumbo came out of that little package.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Scott! As a fellow gumbo chef, we really appreciate your opinion about the gumbo. Those who really understand the love that goes into making it from scratch will appreciate our mix for it’s ease and taste, and your feedback puts a smile on our faces.

      Thank you Gay! Try our other products for more easy, simple meals.

  8. Kelly C.

    Overall was delicious, didn’t upset my stomach like regular kits do . I like heat so it could have used some more spice but that’s just me lol

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Kelly! Please try our other products too. And don’t forget to use WG Seasoning to kick it up without adding too much extra salt.

  9. Cathy B.

    Over all a great dish and easy to prepare

    It was fantastic!

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Maya! We hope you try our other products too!

  11. Harry P.

    I liked it and could probably give detailed description if I wasn’t giving my review while eating it.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Harry! Come back and buy some more so you can concentrate on only the gumbo. 😀

  12. Tara J.

    Very good flavor.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Tara! We hope you try and enjoy our other products too.

  13. Sally S.

    My husband loves cajun food. He could not tell it was gluten free.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Sally! Please try our other products too and don’t tell your husband they are also GF. 🙂

  14. Shannon L.

    Very flavorful, perfect level of spice, all around great gumbo! My husband is usually skeptical of gluten free foods, so I made this for him without telling him it was gluten free. After he ate it and said how delicious it was, I told him it was gluten free and he was shocked! The product was great, and I would definitely buy it to have again. Easy to make without sacrificing flavor. I wish it would come in bigger packs too so I could make a larger serving. Overall delicious product.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Shannon! One of our biggest accomplishments is making our products so delicious no one can tell it is gluten free. I think you just confirmed that! Please try our other products too and let us know your opinion.

  15. Julianna M.

    So full of flavor! Absolutely amazing depth of flavor from such a small package! My husband and I were both really satisfied and it hit the spot. Easy to make! I’d possibly include vegetarian suggestions to the label also near the proteins area but next time I’m adding ALL the proteins plus veggies! The flavor is so great that it can really stand up to adding more to it I think.

    It was absolutely delicious! We went mild cuz of the little one but absolutely amazing depth of flavor. The separate packet to control that spice level is genius! Most things like this are ok but not delicious and I would serve this to guests without hesitation!! And it was easy and fast to make!

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Julianna! We are so happy you enjoyed it so much and appreciate the flavor we strived to get with a GF mix. Please tell your other GF friend, as well as your non GF friends! After all, can you ever have too much gumbo?

  16. Kay C.

    It tasted really good. If I hadn’t known it was gluten free, I probably wouldn’t have come to that conclusion on my own. Instructions are very clear and easy to follow. My 14 year old could easily have made this by himself. The color is amazing. I would like to be able to buy just the roux or roux and seasoning packets. I like to cook so adding fresh vegetables and being able to make a larger amount appeals to me. I had several of my gluten free customers test it and they really liked it. Finding a good gluten free gumbo is very difficult. When I told them how easy it was to prepare, they were really happy to hear that.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Kay! Your comments are exactly what we love to hear. Please share our website with your customers, and also please try our other products then give us your opinion. The opinion of those with gluten issues is extremely important to us.

  17. E.B.D.

    So much flavor! Directions were easy to follow texture was perfect!

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you E.B.D.! Thank you for sharing your opinion and we hope you find our other products just as delicious.

  18. Avery S.

    My husband (who does not eat gluten free) didn’t know it was. I made it without telling him. The taste is really good and looks like an amazing gumbo!

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Avery! Please try our other products and let us know your opinions from your GF side and your husband’s non GF side.

  19. Terri H

    The whole family enjoyed the product!

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Terri! We hope your family will enjoy our other products too.

  20. Rachel C.

    This was easy and basic for me to put together. I like it. My other family members would not eat it bc of the spices but that is the point. I can use whatever protein and veg I cook for them and make me something different. When u are cooking gf usually we just cook the basics, veg/protein and no spices or casseroles.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Rachel! We hope you try our other products and let us know your thoughts. The etouffee is pretty mild and the jambalaya is spiced with black pepper but is still relatively mild.

  21. Linda R.

    The gumbo, was good! I was pleasantly surprised of the flavor and texture. Honestly, I didn’t think it was going to be this good. I’m from Louisiana and we know good eating and your gumbo was delicious. I also like the fact that it was not salty. Great job on your product. It was great! When you put it on the market, consider making a larger family size package.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Linda! For a true Cajun to enjoy it means the world to us! We hope you try our other mixes and let us know your Cajun opinion. We are now offering a Family Size on the gumbo mix that serves 8. You asked…we delivered!

  22. Jessica P.

    This gumbo mix had the best flavor of any box mix I’ve tried I just made it with a spicy smoked sausage and it was amazing. The instructions were spot on and easy to read and follow. My husband had thought I made gumbo from scratch. Personally I loved it the flavor was amazing, and tasted like real homemade gumbo. I’m excited to be able to purchase gluten free products with flavor. A lot of the flavors from other products have been bland.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Jessica! We are so excited that you enjoyed the GF gumbo and that you “tricked” your husband. Try our etouffee for a milder dish, but keep a bottle of WG Seasoning handy to add some spice.

  23. Fran L.

    Flavor will stand up to any traditional scratch method!

    I used a mini whisk and a small Pyrex bowl. The powder and water came together very quickly and was completely incorporated. The surprise was that there were no lumps. It went into solution with the broth almost instantly. Each component of the kit did exactly what the recipe said it would. Each of the cooking times were perfect. The best part of the prep was the addition of the spices. There was an immediate release of fragrance the seasonings that was authentic and complex. Fast, simple prep, price sensitive, and outstanding flavor. It’s a winner!

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you, Fran! We appreciate the time you took to make the gumbo and then let us know your opinion.

  24. Wade C.

    People will pay for this because it makes gumbo easy. This is an intimidating dish for most.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Wade! You can now call yourself a gumbo chef and make it for friends.

  25. Rev M. S.

    Very good seasoning and spice combo. Nice gumbo sheen. Tasted fresh, not like a mix. Was very good…just right in taste, appearance, and flavor. Gumbo was very good. Was afraid it would be too salty, like most mixes I’ve tried, but it was just right. Even had that “glisten” on top like in “Nawlins”! Real good, and hard to believe it was a mix! I like it!

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Rev. M. S.! We appreciate your review and look forward to hearing your opinions on our other products.

  26. Cathy L.

    I don’t eat a lot of gumbo but it was delicious! It made so much that I shared it with a couple of my neighbors. It got rave reviews! Good job and thanks for those of us who eat GF!

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you for the wonderful review! We are so pleased to be able to offer a tasty GF mix.

  27. David T.

    The flavor was rich, complex, and well blended, without being too “hot” or “spicy.”  Was just right for our tastes.  The instructions were quite clear an easy to follow and perform.  We were delighted with the finished product.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you David! We hope you try our other products too and let us know your opinion on their flavors and ease.

    It was absolutely delicious! I was shocked it was gluten free!

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Kelly! One mail goal was to make it so delicious no one would guess is was GF.

  30. Roy & Tracy R.

    As good as any I’ve had in restaurants. Really surprised… the appearance and taste was amazing. Could easily be served in high end restaurants.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Roy & Tracy! What a wonderful compliment! Tell everyone you know. 🙂

    The flavor was wonderful.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Chef Katie! Looking forward to your opinions of our other products.

  33. Mike S. (verified owner)

    I like my gumbo on the spicy side so I used the whole spice pack. It was just enough. Very simple to prepare. I usually add Louisiana hot sausage to mine but this didn’t need it.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Mike! Remember you can always purchase some of our all-purpose seasoning if you want it even spicier.

  34. Peggy P. (verified owner)

    We liked the result very much–flavorful and with good consistency. The only caveat is that we both thought it needed a little extra salt. You may to want to add a “salt to taste” line in the instructions.

    I served the gumbo and rice with a side of plain green beans; I mixed the leftover beans with some gumbo liquid and they were delicious together. That got me thinking that (unless the packages contain animal product) your ingredients could easily make a flavorful vegetarian/vegan dish using water or veg stock—like a variation of gumbo z’herbes or even of just medium-dice whatever veg like carrots, potatoes, beans, etc. This seems like a useful marketing point also. Not exactly traditional, I know, but then, neither is riced cauliflower ;-]

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Chef Peggy! As a chef and food critic, your opinion is very valuable to us. We appreciate your thoughts and suggestions. Thank you for helping us develop and grow.

  35. Kim H.

    Loved it !! Want some mo.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Kim! You know where you can get some mo. 😀

  36. Scott H.

    The gumbo tasted great. Instructions were very easy to follow. Tasted great it was easy to use and I wish it would’ve made a little bit more

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you, Scott! We hope you try our other products as well.

  37. Ted F.

    I added the entire spice mix. It was savory, but not too hot.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Ted! We hope you enjoy our other products as well. Remember you can always add some WG Seasoning if you want it a big spicier.

  38. Jenny W.

    Loved the spicy-ness but it wasn’t over powering. It was delicious. I very much enjoyed it and so did my husband.

    • Susan Armand

      Thank you Jenny! And thank you for also being a loyal customer!

  39. Emily L.

    I would recommend it. Especially when there’s no time to cook a lengthy gumbo dish as it is time consuming when you do it the old-fashioned way. This packet took a weekend meal and made it possible to be a weekday meal after work.

    I was initially concerned about not having fresh vegetables in the gumbo but it was delicious. It still had all the flavor and a level of seasoning that was expected.

  40. Kathy T.

    I thought it was all great!

  41. Michelle C.

    I used all the spice and it wasn’t too spicy for me.

  42. Shary P.

    It has a really good flavor. Looks are spot on. It is just a tad bit different that your usual gumbo but it is an excellent gluten free alternative.
