Have you ever tried a meal replacement bar that promised a delicious experience only to be disappointed? Chances are high that you have and let’s face it – not many meal replacements are actually tasty. Sure, some are better than others but still nothing great. If I’m replacing a meal with something I want it to be worth it; and not just because it has fewer calories, fat and/or carbs.
I’m always open to new things but there’s not much new with meal replacement bars. You can wrap them in pretty paper, throw in a few different ingredients but most still taste like you’re eating a cardboard box, am I right? There’s not much motivation to keep eating them regardless of how convenient they are.
The people behind Thrive must have heard the complaints and pleas for a non-cardboard based meal replacement because they delivered. For almost 10 years Thrive has been developing something special to replace your regular meal replacement. Not only does this meal replacement have tons of vitamins and minerals but it’s actually enjoyable to eat. In 1 serving of the frozen nutrition that is Thrive you’ll get:
- as much protein as an egg (at least 9 grams)
- as much calcium as a cup of milk
- as much potassium as a banana
- 3 grams of fiber
- 25% of the daily recommended amounts of 24 vitamins and minerals
- 4 different strains of probiotic
The fact that Thrive is an ice cream like product makes it the perfect vehicle for anyone to get the nutrition they need without sacrificing the things they love. Thrive is available in Milk Chocolate, Homemade Vanilla, Strawberry and Chocolate Fudge flavors. I would compare Thrive to a frozen yogurt before an ice cream. The smooth, creamy texture is so similar to fro-yo you wont be able to notice the difference.
I can’t think of anything negative to say about Thrive, it blew my socks off. The only issue I’ve found is a bit of a gritty texture if it melts; but it doesn’t normally stick around long enough to actually melt.
As far as taste goes Thrive is out of this world. Forget any meal replacement product you’ve put in your mouth before. There is so much flavor and I’m talking about real flavor – not the artificial, fake wannabe flavors. Thrive is the real deal and my son doesn’t want to eat anything else. He begs to have it for dinner and I will admit I gave in one night. It leaves you feeling full – but in a good way – and without the guilt.
