Three Bakers Breads: Review and Giveaway

Three Bakers logo

Three Bakers is a family-owned company based in Moscow, Pennsylvania, specializing in gluten-free breads, buns, and pizzas.

I love Jane’s story of how Three Bakers came to be.  And I love their promise to make products that taste good, are certified gluten free, are free of dairy (except the pizza), soy, and GMOs, and also contain natural ingredients, fiber, and whole grains.

Recently, gluten-free son and I had the opportunity to try several of their products, and we were impressed.

7 Ancient Grains Bread

Three Bakers Bread

The loaf is a typical size for gluten-free bread.  It definitely has whole-grain characteristics, with a bit of a crunch from the seeds and a hearty flavor and weight.  The bread was soft without being toasted and held together well.  I was impressed! It would be a great choice for sandwiches.

Hot Dog Buns

Three Bakers Hot Dog Bun

Like most gluten-free products, the hot dog buns end up in two pieces when you put a hot dog in the middle.  That was no surprise.  The bread itself was very good.  It was as good as other hot dog buns I have tried.  I did not need to warm the bread in order for it to be soft, though I wouldn’t consider it light and fluffy.  Gluten-free son particularly likes eating hot dogs and was happy with these buns.

Pizza Crust

Three Bakers Pizza

Three Bakers does sell cheese, pepperoni, and sausage pizzas, but what I sampled was only the pizza crust.

It is a nice thin crust that gets crunchy on the edges when baked.  It holds together well and allows you to easily pick up a slice and eat it by hand.  The crust is individual sized.

My son and I both enjoyed it.  Something about the flavor seemed a little odd to me, but my son didn’t notice it.  It was still a very enjoyable pizza.

Hoagie Rolls

Three Bakers Hoagie Roll

I wanted to give you a good look at this roll without food on it.   Of course, the picture doesn’t do it justice.  This is a very nice soft bread.  It makes a great sandwich roll, but my son commented that if you cut it in slices it would also be perfect served as bread to eat with spaghetti.

I haven’t tried the hamburger rolls yet.  Mostly because it’s winter and we’re not grilling.  And because I am severely limiting my carbs.  But based on the other rolls, I’m confident that they will be soft and tasty.

Some of the products I tried when they arrived, and others I froze and then thawed before eating.  Freezing didn’t seem to have any negative effect.  Also, the products kept well on the counter for several days without becoming dry or crumbly.  That’s a significant plus with gluten-free products!

Where to Connect and Purchase

I highly recommend these products.  You can buy them from the Three Bakers web site, and they are also available in some stores.

    I just found your site and signed up for your newsletter. I am not celiac but am on an anti-yeast diet, and also I have MS so cutting out the wheat in my diet. Dairy free- except yogurt and kiefer (little cheese now and then); sugar free, using natural substitute but that does not include honey or maple syrup. I was just thinking last night I’d love some french bread with my spaghetti. I want to try your french bread recipe and look forward to trying your other recipes as well.
    Thanks, Jane

  3. nichole says

    This is great! Just found your blog! I am gluten free for 9 months now due to being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and am doing everything I can to keep this auto immune disease from getting worse! Great information keep up the good work!

  4. Vicky S says

    I so much like to try new breads. If I don’t win this I’ll make a point to try their bread soon. I remember when we had all types of bread brands to choose from and now we are limited in our stores. If only we can get them stores to realize we don’t eat just 1 brand of bread and we need more then 1 choice…. Right!!? Well that’s what is going on at my local stores. “I’m voicing for more brand of breads.” We have 1 brand…. Blahhhh.

    Good luck everyone and remember to voice your opinion on the brands of gluten free breads in your stores!!

  5. Katie S says

    My fiance was just put on a gluten free diet. We are looking for good tasting bread substitutes. I’m excited I found your blog and can’t wait to try out some recipes. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  6. Lee Barrilleaux says

    Thanks for the review. It would be great to try a different bread.

  7. Ann McNeill says

    We are recently Gluten free and are having a difficult time adjusting. Your website is a God-send. Good Breads are particularly hard to find. Would love to win!
    Thank you!

  8. Deborah J Austin says

    I would LOVE to win. I love trying new Breads, always a challenge to find a good one, but they are out there.

  9. Samantha says

    Thanks for this review and the giveaway! I’d love to win! Are these breads free of xanthan gum and guar gum, by chance?

    • Susan says

      I went to the company’s web site and there is xanthan gum in their products – I only looked at two of their products, so I don’t know if it’s in all of them. Look up Three Bakers Bread on your Internet search engine and then look at their products on their web site.

  10. Tara says

    It’s tough trying to find gluten free foods that actually taste good. It sounds like you put a lot of effort into these. I can’t wait to see if Three Bakers Breads is my new favorite! Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  11. gina says

    I so love the reviews and will need to try this.. we are always looking for a good hoagie roll.. Thanks!!

  12. says

    Thanks for posting a review, I hadn’t heard of this company before, I will check to see where I can buy them. I would LOVE a good sub roll (that’s what we call them in boston, what the rest of the country calls hoagies) and if it would make good garlic bread I am all in, i miss garlic bread!!

  13. DIANE says

    The 7 Ancient Grains Bread looks scrumptious. I really miss good pizza & look forward to trying 3 Bakers pizza crust. All the products look wonderful & I really appreciate that they are not only gluten-free but also soy-free!

  14. emily q says

    thanks for the great giveaway. 😀 my two sons and i all eat gf and it would be a lovely treat to have some different options. thanks again!

  15. Terri says

    I would love to try to bread for free! I wonder if it will be available nationally or in local co-ops here in the mid-west. I have never eaten so much bread as since I became Celiac/GF, as it is easy to bring a sandwich to work, and difficult to eat out, and many foods are not good reheated at the office. So – sandwiches more often than I would like with a busy schedule.
    Looks like great bread!

  16. Dineen says

    A whole grain gluten-free bread that you could actually make a sandwich with sounds amazing. This giveaway sounds like a rare treat.

  17. Marci H says

    My son is allergic to wheat so I hope we get picked to try these new products. Thanks for the chance to try these.

  18. Theresa C says

    I really want to give Three Bakers Breads a try. I was excited when I saw that they are located so close to my home. I love supporting the small local businesses… especially when they are trying so hard to make delicious tasting gluten free bread products!! We all know there are not many out there. I want to wish Three Bakers Bread luck and success with their business adventure. I for sure will be a supporter. Thank you!! :)

  19. Patty says

    I have always loved bread. I would love to try the pizza dough as that is also another one of my cravings

  20. Theresa C. says

    I have been looking everywhere for a great hot dog bun GF. Thank you for the great giveaway. :)

  21. Patty D. says

    It’s hard to eliminate breads from my diet. Would love to sample any of these

  22. Carol Gross says

    My daughter and I are gluten intolerant; and the thing we miss the most is breads, this would be great to have! Thanks.

  23. JillW says

    I LOVE that story, too! Thanks for sharing it, Linda and Jane! We have just tried Three Bakers bread and hoagies in the last few weeks and they are WONDERFUL. Their perseverance has paid off for us all! :) Would love to try the pizza crust and hot dog buns. We’ll definitely be carrying the bread and hoagies in the organic store where I volunteer!

  24. Sherry says

    My husband has Celiac disease and finding good breads has been difficult. I myself don’t need to eat gluten free but choose to for his health and safety. I would be very excited to try a new bread and also will check out the website and probably order some!

  25. Cathy says

    The products look good!! Thanks for the give away!
    Miss good breads and pizza so much….
    Thanks for all your great posts and recipes…I need all the help I can get.

  26. Angie says

    I found your site today by accident, I’ve been GF for three weeks now, and all the premade breads I tried are terrible. There are no stores around me that carry it, but I’ll be calling friends around the country to send me some.

    Down here in New Orleans, BREAD is king.. Can’t wait to use your hoagies for a good old fashioned poboy!

  27. Tracy says

    It wouuld be fun to try a new bread option! I think I would really enjoy the hoagie roll, by the looks of it!

  28. Gretchen says

    I just bought my second loaf of Three bakers White bread. My local health food store has limited space so they only carry white but I will ask for the Ancient Grains bread too…I hope they can get it in. I really like this bread! The texture is great even for sandwiches. I think they flavor is slightly sweet – and I love that! I would be great to win this give away!

  29. Shannon J. says

    Thanks for the review and the opportunity. I quit eating hotdogs with buns years ago, but what I wouldn’t give for a steak and cheese sandwich where I could trust the bread to hold up! Looks delicious!

  30. Mina says

    We’re always on the lookout to try new gluten free products. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open when we’re out shopping.

  31. says

    I would live to try these different breads it is very hard to find good tasting bread that is gluten free. Only one I have found is sandwich bread by Glutino and it is very good but I would like something different.

  32. Anne says

    They have served this bread to me at school. I will try to locate where it is sold.

  33. Kimberly Smick says

    I would live to win this! It would be awesome to have gluten free bread that stays together and to have hoagie buns that are soft…yes please!!

  34. says

    This sounds like a good bread to try. I like the pics, it definitely helps to see the bread open-face. Thank you for the giveaway!

  35. Angel Parker says

    I’ve been in search of gluten free loaf bread that has a yummy texture and taste. Thanks for letting me know about this product and a chance to win it!

  36. Ellen says

    These products sound yummy–and there is a good variety. Can’t wait to try the hoagie rolls. Thanks,too, for the giveaway.

  38. Gale says

  39. Lorraine B says

    Have found this bread on my market’s freezer shelf, but as yet have not
    tried it. The only problem is they do not carry all of these products. I will
    see if I can purchase them all online. I can’t wait to try them all.

  40. Sara says

    These look yummy! I’ve never had a gf hoagie roll before – I definitely want to try it! Thanks for the review!

  41. Kim L says

  42. chery L says

    my daughter has celiac and I would love her to have some of this bread. Thanks for the oportunity.

  43. Camille Molaro says

    Thank you for reviewing Three Bakers products. They are my favorite gluten free breads. I love the hoagie rolls, and pizza the best.

  44. Debbie Sweeney says

    I have been hunting for a good tasting gluten free hot dog bun. I am going to give this one a try! Thanks!

  45. Tammy F says

    GF bread that is good without toasting….count me in!! I live in a rural area and choices here are very limited would love to try something new.

  46. Cindy W. says

    I have not heard of this brand before but would love to try it. Thank you for the giveaway.

  47. Rachael says

    My GF husband misses sandwiches and rolls so much!
    Love the look and description of the hoagie roll!

  48. Michele says

    One of the things that I hear is missed the most around our house are buns. These look like really good buns and I would love to give them a try. Thank you for sharing.

  49. Janis S says

    thanks for sharing this review. It saves us money when you review a product because we know what to expect.

  50. Diana Wojtasinski says

    I miss having tasty, soft, whole grain bread. would love to try these products!

  51. says

    I have been GF for 6 months now and haven’t found an edible pizza. I am anxious to find a crisp crust, your write-up is making me hungry!

  52. Kristine says

    Just as I got the hang of providing for my milk-allergic 2 year old, we just found out he’s also allergic to wheat and soy with further allergy testing coming up this week. The last week I’ve been operating under the assumption that he’s also allergic to gluten, just in case. So far, the breads we’ve tried have been awful. Just found your blog and would live a chance to try these breads! Thanks for the review!

  53. Karol says

    Thanks for the fun contest. The hoagies look awesome! Would love to make some meatball sandwiches on that.

  54. says

    Oooh, they look delicious! And a lot of times gluten-free items don’t look that great. I’m so glad the ones you tried were good!

  55. Karen Garman says

    Looking forward to trying everything. That’s one thing that I really miss being on a FG diet and that’s good bread!

  56. Rayelle says

    I don’t eat a lot of carby things but my little boy would be thrilled to have these in the house. The bread and the hoagie rolls in particular look amazing! I’d love to try making toasted garlic bread with those rolls.

  57. Ej F says

    Thank you for this opportunity to try your breads. I HATE – repeat – HATE that gluten free bread texture I’ve experienced so far… I’m new to GF and as I learned recently it was a food allergy I had had all my life. Unfortunately I miss the multigrain taste and texture. To have a GF bread that stands up to spreading peanut butter would be FANTASTIC!

  58. Tracy says

    Oh the bread sounds wonderful! It is so hard to find gluten-free bread that resembles the bread I used to eat before finding out I was intolerant. I would love to have good hot dog buns!

  59. Nancy says

    Thanks Linda for keeping us posted of the latest and greatest. I have a question about the pizza – how was it the next day? Were there any leftovers? I used “Against the Grain” pizza which is pretty good, but the crust turns horrible over night. Thanks!

  60. Grace S. says

    These look AMAZING! My girls are so excited that there are hot dog buns! Thanks for letting us know about this company. Would love to try them.

  61. Brandi Lock says

    We love finding great GF bread to eat. Can’t wait to try your brand!

  62. Leslie says

    Been looking for a good hogie roll. Am missing my Bahn Mi sandwiches. Thanks for the giveaway.

  63. Victoria Graves says

    These look so good! It is hard to find gf baked goods in our town, and what I do find is expensive and crumbles on sight. I tend to make my own, but would be nice to have something premade that had good taste and texture. So count me in! Smile…

  64. patricia J says

    Those hoagie rolls look delicious. I can just about taste them. Thank you for the nice giveaway.

  65. Jennifer C says

    I would love to try these. So far I have not found a good gluten free hot dog bun!

  66. Diana G says

    looks tasty. I’m always looking to try new GF products and the rolls look good. thanks.

  67. Monique C. M. says

    I found your blog through GFE – gluten-free easily. Soy-free? Can’t wait to try these out!

  68. Vicky Ables says

    I would like to try your breads. I have never heard of them. Thank you for doing this giveaway to give people a chance to try your products

  69. Sharla B says

    I love oe bread and yours looks so yummy – pick me for the giveaway (:

  70. Steve L says

    Never heard of this bakery before. I will have to go and try their breads

  71. Joyce N says

    I’m happy to see a company that makes gluten-free hot dog and hoagie buns. They look soft – not hard a crumbly. Can’t wait to try them!

  72. Doreen says

    I would love to try a loaf of bread…I haven’t met a GF bread that I love, yet. Hoping this could be the one!

  73. heatherlane58 says

    The 7 grain looks great! Thank you for giving an honest opinion of the products.

  74. Casandra says

    Oh my! Its almost spring and I would so love a hamburger or hot dog in a BUN!

  75. mary says

    All three products look to be worth a try! Still looking for an acceptable pizza crust recipe. Sure would be nice to have an addition in the “ready made” option if this is a good one!

  76. mary says

    Would love to try three bakers products. Just learned about this company this week.

  77. Kathy says

    thank you for being here. It’s made a world of difference to my daughter.

    • says

      Kathy, I’m not sure if you’re referring to my blog or Three Bakers, but either way I’m thrilled that one of us is making things easier for you and your daughter.

  78. Lindsay Mullins says

    In my 3rd year of being GF and I love trying new products! Thanks for the giveaway!

  79. Laura says

    Thanks for this information and the photos. The 7 ancient grains bread looks and sounds like one of those things I have dearly missed since being diagnosed with celiac.

  80. Susan says

    These look like good bread! Since I have to avoid both gluten and soy for medical reasons, anytime I can find products without those, it’s time for me to celebrate!

  81. Carrie Elsass says

    We always love to try the latest GF products- they just seem to keep getting tastier and tastier!

  82. Deanna says

    My family and I would love to try the gluten free bread products, since they look delicious!

  83. Natalie says

    I would love to win a loaf of your bread. I have bought bread from other companies that just wasn’t good. I also struggle with baking my own. I would love to give yours a try!!!

  84. linda smith says

    Thank you for the review. I have heard good things about this brand and definitely look forward to trying the products.

  85. Andrea says

    I have recently decided to go gluten free on my own to decrease other health issues and yet to find bread I like. This will be my next try and hope it’s a success with the good reviews I’ve seen.

  86. says

    Oooh! My brothers would flip if I won this. I don’t make GF bread very often because of the carbs, so they are always excited when we get to eat it. 😀 Plus my bread recipes are never light and fluffy because I don’t use starch, just rice and sorghum flour. So they really get excited when they get to cheat and eat fluffy bread. 😀

  87. Diana Rios says

    I would love to win some of these breads. I have very little available locally so I usually just go without. Thanks for the giveaway.

  88. Jan says

    I am new and overwhelmed..this might be a way to try new bread items..I am used to bread at every meal and I miss it!

  89. DPetets says

    I can’t wait to visit Three Bakers website and see what I can get… yum.

  90. Denise says

    I love the pizza with sausage! I hope that our local stores get more of your products in soon, they look great too.
