Thrive Market Review & The Best Healthy Pantry Staples

10 min read by

It should come as no surprise that we are big Thrive Market fans; I’ve shared many Thrive Market hauls on my Instagram and keto-friendly grocery picks here. Since I am no longer following the keto diet, I wanted to write this updated Thrive Market healthy favorites post. Spoiler: Some of them are naturally keto, so you might notice a few duplicates! Before I dive in, I will preface that, because of the way we receive shipments to our apartment, we cannot utilize the wine or frozen sections on Thrive Market. It’s a bummer, but some day when we find a house, we will definitely explore those options as well.

What I Love About Thrive Market

The best part about having a Thrive Market subscription is the deals, exclusive offerings, product selection, and free gifts. They carry so many popular brands that you’d find at Whole Foods, Sprouts, Fresh Market, etc., usually at better prices. The website also makes it easy to know what you’ve ordered before, with “buy again” sections or reminders that you’ve purchased that item before.

Thrive Market is also incredible for any dietary restrictions or allergies as they have a filter for just about everything, i.e. gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, raw, vegan, vegetarian, keto, low FODMAP, organic, Whole30, non-GMO, Kosher, Halal, caffeine-free, cholesterol-free, dye and color additive-free, fragrance-free, nut-free, soy-free, Leaping Bunny certified, etc. Learn more about it here!

The customer service and packaging of Thrive Market orders I’ve received are impressive. It’s the little things that can go a long way! All your orders are delivered with free carbon-neutral shipping.

Last but not least, every annual membership sponsors a free membership for a family in need. <3

Dressings, Sauces, Spreads and Syrups

Snacks

Sweets

Beverages

  • Poppi – These prebiotic sodas are the way of the future, and I’m so here for it. The orange is one of my favorites!
  • Sparkling waters – We are big sparkling water/tea consumers at home. Thrive Market carries Sound, Aura Bora, Sanzo, Revive, Swoon, SkinTe, and more. I wish they had Spindrift and Olipop, two other brand favorites of ours.
  • Pop & Bottle Lattes – We first discovered this brand at Thrive Market, and later saw it popping up at grocery stores left and right. We’ve tried every flavor and they are all delicious!
  • Four Sigmatic Lattes – If you want to try adaptogens, Four Sigmatic is a fantastic brand to start with. Their flavors such as the Cacao, Chai Latte, Matcha Latte, and Golden Latte completely cover up the mushroom earthiness in my opinion. I have often reached for a cup of the cacao or chai as my evening “dessert” since they contain Reishi to help you relax. I genuinely feel the difference. As for the coffee, I’ve found that it somehow is so well-balanced that doesn’t give me the unwanted side effects of coffee.
  • Gaia Herbs Gas & Bloating Tea – I will admit, the name is not glamorous. However, it works and it tastes great even if you’re not trying to treat digestive discomfort. I reach for it regularly, no pun intended!
  • Traditional Medicinals Tea – Similar to Gaia Herbs, this is another line of what I would call healing teas. The Spearmint and Nighty Night are some of our personal favorites.
  • Teeccino Roasted Herbal Dandelion Teas – We discovered Teeccino at Thrive Market and are obsessed with the Caramel Nut, Dark Roast (tastes like coffee!), and Mocha Mint flavors. They are excellent at night for your digestion.
  • The Republic of Tea – I have been a fan of The Republic of Tea since I was a little girl. The variety, quality, and flavors are truly excellent. I have too many favorites to list!
  • Numi Teas – A recent discovery is the Numi Rooibos Tea and I love it! Rooibos lattes are a South African specialty that I often forget about, but love when I have them. Honestly, it needs to become more popular at coffee/tea shops here in the U.S.
  • Organic India Tulsi Teas – I was intrigued by the incredible reviews, and they did not steer me wrong. Lemon Ginger is a staple tea in our house and we also love their Sleep Tea.
  • Yogi Teas – I love how the Yogi Tea packets fit in our tea organizer but the variety is also fun. I’ve tried most of the flavors with some of my favorites being Bedtime and Honey Lavender.
  • Thrive Market Teas – Despite all these specialty brands above, Thrive Market makes great teas of their own as well.

More of my favorite tea favorites can be found in this post!

Disappointments

I always receive great feedback from sharing my open and honest thoughts, so here are a few disappointments that I won’t be repurchasing.

  • Garlic Gold Toasted Garlic Nuggets – I absolutely love the idea of these, but they aren’t very exciting IRL.
  • Go Raw Sprouted Organic Granola – As much as I love the brand’s seed mixes (mentioned above), this granola didn’t quite do it for me.
  • Thrive Market Grain-Free Granola – I totally appreciate that they offer their own granolas, but similar to other items on this list, they are not as good as their popular brand alternative. In this case, I’m referring to Purely Elizabeth.
  • Thrive Market Organic Coconut Wraps – I really wanted to like these but I couldn’t quite figure out what to use them with. I found the coconut flavor to be a bit strong.
  • Thrive Market Everything Bagel Blend – Despite all the alternatives we’ve tried, nothing beats the OG Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel. Who knew it could be such a difficult thing to replicate?!
  • OM Mighty Chicken Bone Broth – I love the ingredients and price point of this bone broth, but it’s just not as good as Kettle & Fire. I also find it doesn’t blend/dissolve as well as I’d like.
  • Avocado Huggers – We’ve used these for a while, but honestly, they’re unnecessary and not super effective. We also found that avocados really vary in size so it was difficult to match the sizing perfectly to prevent air touching the open avocado. Although wasteful, nothing works better than saran wrap.

Other Thrive Market Offerings

Given the length of this post and that Adventures in Gourmet is a food-centric blog, I wanted to keep these offerings to a minimum. However, they are definitely worth checking out!

  • Beauty – Brands I love include Hero Cosmetics, RMS Beauty, Ursa Major, Acure, Mad Hippie, Weleda, Well People
  • Home – I love getting the Everyone hand soap – The scents are so good and have a very clean ingredient list. If you’re a Mrs. Meyers fan, you’d love these. I’m eager to try more from their laundry and cleaning section. If you have any recommendations, I’d love to know!
  • Bath & Body – Brands I love include Dr. Bronner’s, Lumineux, Kitsch, The Honest Co., The Seaweed Bath Co., Boiron
  • Vitamins – Brands I love include LMNT, Moon Juice, Liquid IV, Thorne, Beekeeper’s Naturals, and more
  • Babies & Kids – I don’t have any kids so I can’t speak to this category.
  • Pets – I don’t have any pets so I can’t speak to this category.
  • Frozen, Meat & Seafood, Wine – As previously stated, we are unable to receive fresh or frozen items via delivery to our apartment complex. Regarding wine, it’s easier now that we have a delivery service bring packages to our door, whereas before we had to walk it quite a distance from the pick-up area to our door.

Sign Up For Thrive Market

For me, a membership to Thrive Market pays for itself very quickly because of the great deals and savings. I think it is especially worth considering if you want the convenience of online grocery shopping, enjoy trying new products, have a healthy diet, prefer cleaner products, or have food allergies/diet restrictions.

Believe it or not, you can even make back your membership fee in savings, or they will credit you the difference! That means if your membership fee was $60 & you only saved $40 during your membership year, they’ll automatically add $20 Thrive Cash to your account after you renew!

    So many excellent suggestions…I will definitely review this list before I place my next order! Btw, crumbled Cheese Whisps are an excellent keto substitute for carby croutons in a Caesar salad. Gotta have some crunch in a Caesar!

    I love that idea for the cheese whisps! I’ll need to try that. Thanks for sharing!
