Snacks for Clean Eaters! My Thrive Bars Review

Eating healthy is a struggle on its own. But SNACKING healthy--that's a whole new challenge! So I put the Thrive Bars from GoMacro through the test to find out if these Organic, Gluten-Free, Plant-Based protein snack bars were as tasty as they sound.

Disclaimer: I received a Free sample tray of Thrive Bars from GoMacro in exchange for a blog review and giveaway. All opinions on this product are my own. 

I've tried the original GoMacro MacroBars from this company before and fallen in love with them. (previous review HERE). I continue to purchase my favorite flavors of GoMacro Bars from Whole Foods. So I was super excited to give their new line of Thrive Superfood Nut Bars a try.

What's so special about GoMacro? They're a family-run, natural food company, whose roots come from organic farming. (In fact, they have highlighted their farm where the fresh ingredients come from on their Instagram story!) GoMacro bars are 100% vegan, USDA certified organic, non-GMO, Gluten-Free, and made from raw ingredients. It doesn't get more of a healthy snack and clean eating than this!

Check out the ingredients you can see!

Just the right amount of chewy and sweet.
I have been asked "where does the protein from the Thrive Bars come from then?" Each Thrive Bar has 6-8g of protein, depending on the flavor. The bars are made up of a superfood ancient grain blend (think sprouted flax, quinoa, hemp, etc) which contain naturally occurring protein as well as the nuts (cashews, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, etc) that are also inside each bar, depending on the flavor.

Speaking of flavors... there's a wide variety of interesting and delicious Thrive Bar Flavors:
  • Chocolate PB Chip
  • Caramel Coconut
  • Ginger Lemon
  • Almond Apricot
  • Chocolate, Nuts & Sea Salt
  • Blueberry Lavender

The verdict? LOVE! I was already a GoMacro Fan. Now I'm a SuperFan! I expected the Thrive Bars to taste like a Kind bar, as they are about the same size. However, they tasted much better to me. Slightly chewy and much softer than a Kind bar. And 10x the flavor.

My favorite, of course, were the Chocolate PB Chip and the Chocolate, Nuts & Sea Salt. Because, who doesn't love chocolate--right?? But there wasn't a single other flavor that I didn't like. I thought, surely, I'd not enjoy the Blueberry Lavender or Ginger Lemon, but both were really great and a perfect "light tasting" snack.

In fact, I had a very upset tummy after my Craft Classic Half. So I had a Ginger Lemon Thrive Bar in the car on the ride home. It helped to settle my stomach and satisfy my hunger at the same time until I was able to get a warm meal in me. I will definitely start carrying these for both before and after my long runs!

All in all I highly recommend snagging a tray of any Thrive Bar flavor online or at your local grocery story (click HERE to find a local GoMacro vendor in your area).

If you purchase online, use discount code "Thrive30" for 30% off your Thrive Bar order (does not apply to the Thrive Assorted tray). I've already bought another tray of the Chocolate PB chip myself!
