When busy training, working, managing family life, and investing in our communities, there are sure to be times when we need a good snack! Whether we are hungry on the go, recovering from a workout, or holding ourselves over to the next meal it's important to have healthy a nd easy-to-eat food on hand.
Read on for my list of the 10 Best Thrive Market Snacks, reasons why I love Thrive Market, and how to get these snacks for yourself!
Snacking has been the name of my game lately. Between running 40 miles per week, doing Burn Boot Camp 3-4 times/week, writing a cookbook, creating new recipes for the blog, and spending time with friends and family, life has been busy!
With all the activity comes a corresponding appetite, but not always the time to cook. So, I've been reaching out for snacks that are better for me while still being delicious and easy to grab on the go!
Though I have favorite snacks at Trader Joe's and Costco, I don't always remember to pick snacks up at the store when I'm there. Often, I don't have time to make an extra run, either.
So, one day when placing my Thrive Market order, I browsed their snack selection and ended up going to town!
It turns out that Thrive Market has an abundance of healthy snacks that are totally tasty, too. Sweet and salty; healthy and satisfying; you name it! Overall, they're the kind of snacks that I now order on repeat and almost always have on hand.
Read on for the complete list of my favorite healthy snacks, as well as for the 9 reasons I love Thrive Market!
Why I love Thrive Market:
1) Great selection
Every time I go on Thrive Market I find something new. Their selection ranges from everything from snacks and wine to pantry staples, meat and seafood, supplements, beauty products, babies & kids, pets, and more!
Thrive market doesn't have produce and fresh food yet (though they do now have Frozen meals), but they offer non-perishable items in almost every other grocery category!
With the increase in online shopping comes the increase in packaging needed to ship products. So, I'm trying my best to support and do business with companies that offer recycable packaging
Thankfully, we can feel good about Thrive Market's packaging. Every part of Thrive Market's packaging is recyclable and or reusable. Even the packaging tape!
3) Carbon Neutral
Thrive Market has been working to achieve a carbon-neutral status since 2014 and this year they finally achieved it!
By using a combination of carbon offsets, efficiency improvements, and more they have eliminated their carbon footprint. How impressive!

4) No GMO Products
Though not all of the products at Thrive Market are non-GMO, they have a wide selection of products that are!
Just search "Non-GMO project verified" ad you'll be sure to find a wide selection of healthy and reasonably priced non-GMO products!
5) Fast Shipping
I'm constantly impressed with Thrive Market's quick shipping. My orders are always here within three days, if not two.
One evening my shipment even showed up at 7 PM, showing their commitment to delivering my products as quickly as possible, even if the delivery time is inconvenient for them.
Bonus point: get free shipping on all orders over $49! According to their website, they have this threshold to help reduce the impact on the environment of shipping more boxes with fewer products in them.
6) Great Customer Service
Thrive Market has amazing customer service! They are super responsive to questions, have a great return policy, and generally will do whatever they can to make sure you enjoy your experience with them.
True story: I took a temporary break from ordering after I first signed up with Thrive. Their customer service team reached out to me to see if anything was wrong and if I had any questions. They were genuinely enthusiastic about the company and not pushy. Highly recommend!
7) Member pricing
Thrive Market offers super competitive pricing for members on almost all of their products! Not only that, but they often have sales on products, too.
For example, a few weeks ago I bought...
- A quart of MCT
- A quart of maple syrup
- 20 oz. of grass-fed collagen
All for just $40!!! I don't know where else you can find a deal like that!
8) Thrive Market Gives
Thrive Market does a one-for-one membership matching program, meaning that they give a free membership to a low-income family, student, first responder, veteran, or teacher for every new paying membership!
I love that the company puts their money where their mouth is when they say that they want "everyone to have access to healthy products, regardless of their income."
To apply for a Thrive Gives membership, just click here!
9) Welcome sign up gifts
As a "thank you' for signing up, Thrive offers new memberships a gift worth at least $22!
I'm always for a freebie -- especially if it's something I can eat!!

10 Must-Try Thrive Market Snacks!
Ok, so let's get on with the yummy stuff! 'Cause what's a grocery delivery business if they don't have delicious food?!
Here is the list of my 10 favorite Thrive Market snacks, complete with reasons why I love each snack, their respective member pricing (as of October 2020), and other fun facts about each product.
Annie's Cheesy Smiles
We have my friend Lesley to blame for this one! Lesley pulled out a bag of these after a strenuous hike this past summer and I haven't been the same since!
They're full of cheesy flavor while still being baked, gluten-free, and made with no synthetic colors or artificial flavors. They're a snack your kids will love and you'll feel good about eating, too!
Each bag only has 3 servings, so I recommend grabbing an extra bag or two (you can thank me later 😉).

Salted Almond Butter Chocolate Bars
What's better than almond butter and dark chocolate? Salted almond butter in dark chocolate. 😍
I first bought this chocolate bar on impulse at Whole Foods and was hooked. So, when I discovered it was available at Thrive Market for a better price, you better bet I was all over it!
Thrive Market does require a 4 bar minimum order because they ship the chocolate with an ice pack. Freeze your extra bars to have a frozen chocolate snack on hand, give a bar to a friend, or simply save your additional chocolate bars for later.
Member's Price: $2.49/bar
Whether you're looking for a sweet treat or a new bike ride or trail running snack, these organic dried mangoes fit the bill! They're full of vitamins and minerals while being sweet, chewy, and full of healthy carbs.
Also, Mavuno Harvest works with struggling farmers across sub-Saharan African to make a profit and get the most from their harvests. So, you can enjoy quality dried fruit while feeling good about supporting organic farmers!

Whisps Parmesan Cheese Crisps
If you're into cheesy croutons, these parmesan cheese crisps are for you! With only 1g of carbohydrates per seving and loads of umami flavor, these crisps are delicious on their own, on on a salad, or even crumbled on top of your favorite pasta.
1 serving has 13g protein, making these crisps perfect to rebuild your muscles after a strength workout. They're also keto-friendly with their super low carb count.
Bonus point: check out their barbecue cheese crisps and asiago & pepper jack cheese crisps to mix it up!

EPIC Beef Jerky
All the benefits of grass-fed beef on the go? I am in! Not only does this beef jerky have more omega-3's and healthier fats than traditional jerky, but it also lacks nitrates, too.
The jerky is cut into ultra-tender bite-size pieces -- perfect to eat on the way home from a lifting session at the gym!
Check out other flavors of the EPIC jerky. I've loved all the types I've dried so far!
Member's Price: $5.99
With the nutrition of nuts and the comforting flavor of maple and cinnamon, this dried fruit and nut mix is a keeper!
I love grabbing a handful of these snacks when I'm looking for a sweet treat but want to keep it on the healthier side.
These treats would also be an amazing hiking or snowshoeing snack and I'm considering throwing them on a cheese board soon, too!

Lesser Evil Popcorn
Think there's only so many exciting, yet healthy, things we can do with popcorn? Then, think again: Lesser Evil popcorn has changed the way I think about the popped grain!
With creative flavor combinations, many vegan flavors, and healthier oils (think avocado, coconut, and ghee) this popcorn is addictively delicious while being better for you.
Member's Price: $3.29
Bare Snacks Cinnamon Banana Chips
I must admit, I had low expectations when I first tried these banana chips. I mean, how exciting can bananas really be?
It turns out they can be so exciting that I can blow through a whole bag in one sitting!
They're crunchy, warmly spiced, and naturally sweet --- all while containing only bananas and cinnamon!
So, grab a bag and feel good about a sweet treat that supplies you with nutrition, fiber, and potassium.

Thrive Market Apple Sauce
A few years ago I re-discovered apple sauce as an adult and I just can't go back. With a few good shakes of cinnamon on top, what isn't to love about a healthy and convenient snack that reminds me of childhood?!
With the only ingredient being certified organic apples, this Thrive Market apple sauce is an easy way to enjoy the fall fruit any time of year.
Bonus: grab the apple sauce in individual serving pouches to make it easier to enjoy on the go!

There's nothing quite like savory and salted seaweed! This seaweed is organic and has no preservatives or chemicals, leaving a super clean flavor.
Buy the individual packages like I did or buy large sheets of seaweed. Either way, you're sure to enjoy the unique flavor and health benefits of seaweed!
