There are a ridiculous number of snack bars available these days – half of the snack aisle of my local supermarket is completely dedicated to granola and protein bars. How are you supposed to make a choice faced with so many?
You guys already know I’m a fan of GoMacro, so when they reached out to tell me about a brand new product they’ve just released, plant-based nutrition bars called Thrive, I was super excited to try them. Just like all the GoMacro products, Thrive are USDA-Certified Organic, Non-GMO, Kosher, Gluten Free, Vegan, Kosher, Macrobiotic and Soy Free. I know, it’s an impressive resume for one snack bar.
The best part is they actually taste good. These are more of a traditional style granola bar than their MacroBars – the nuts and grains and goodies in the ingredients are chunky and whole – and just as delicious. The flavors range from some tried-and-true combos, like Chocolate, Nuts and Sea Salt, or their Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip, to more unusual pairings for granola bars, such as Blueberry Lavender and my favorite hands down, Ginger Lemon. (I’m a sucker for anything with ginger in it.) The Blueberry Lavender flavor is so unusual – I actually thought I’d hate it, or at least feel like I was eating flowers, but I was surprised by how much I liked it.
With all that said, there are just a couple of cons for Thrive by GoMacro. First is some of their flavors include nuts, so if you have a nut allergy, you will need to be careful which flavors you try. Second, despite being not too many calories less than the MacroBars they offer, these Thrive bars don’t keep me satiated for as long a time as the MacroBars did. I would still choose Thrive over MacroBars, though, since I love the flavors of Thrive and I also really like the texture of these bars.
I think you will love these Thrive bars too, which is why I’m hosting a giveaway of a box of assorted flavors of Thrive, plus offering you a sweet, sweet 30% discount code to use on the GoMacro website.
