- Online grocery store Thrive Market sells a ton of healthy and socially conscious products.
- It’s great for anyone with dietary restrictions or those looking for healthier snacks.
- Thrive Market’s selection is vast, with better prices than health food stores like Whole Foods.
A few members of Insider Reviews have been members of Thrive Market for the past couple of years and rave about the curated selection of healthy and tasty food and snacks.
If you’re not familiar with Thrive Market, think of it as an online-only, healthier version of Costco. Members pay a yearly fee ($60) that gives them access to food products at relatively low prices and for every membership purchased, Thrive gives one to a family in need. Here’s a full review from one of our senior reporters.
Thrive doesn’t have much in terms of fresh produce so I shop mostly for nonperishable options like pasta and sauces to fill in the gaps after a trip to the grocery store. But my favorite thing about Thrive? Its awesome snack collection.
There are hundreds of tasty goods that often cater to dietary restrictions including gluten-free, keto-friendly, or plant-based. Pricing and availability can vary a bit based on region, so some items may be out of stock in your area.
Here are the best ones we’ve tried and loved from Thrive Market.
The best snacks on Thrive Market:
I love eating pickles, but it’s hard to take them as an on-the-go snack. Thankfully, popular pickle brand Rick’s Picks offers little snack-size pickles in travel-size, single-serve packaging. I gobble these up whenever I have them on hand. I’ve even thought about pouring some of the leftover brine into a cocktail. They’re low calorie, vegan, gluten-free, and kosher.
Bare Snacks Organic Apple Chips
I love these because they give you the crunch of a chip and the health factor of eating an apple. I’ve read that it’s relatively easy to dehydrate apples and make them into chips — you literally just stick a tray of apple slices into your oven. But when I don’t have time to do that (which is often), I go for these organic snacks that are gluten-free and non-GMO. Bonus: You get both Fuji and red apples in every pack.
Luke’s Organic White Cheddar Cheese Puffs
I always loved Pirate’s Booty when I was a kid, and these taste just like them but with a way more amped-up flavor. There’s a salty tang to these, probably because buttermilk is one of the ingredients in this gluten-free, non-GMO snack.
That’s It Fruit Bars: Apple and Cherry
These fruit bars are sweet without being cloying, and they only contain apples and cherries — absolutely no other ingredients added. I love to grab one of these bars for breakfast when I want to start off my day with fiber, vitamin C, and a little natural sugar. They’re small enough to feel like a snack, but substantial enough to stave off my hunger at the beginning of the day. They come in other delicious flavors as well, including Apple and Strawberry, Apple and Mango, and Apple and Blueberry.
Thrive Market Non-GMO Avocado Oil Potato Chips, Salt & Vinegar
This chips are kettle-cooked with avocado oil and then sprinkled with salt and vinegar for a super crunchy and tasty snack.
I love that these chips only have three ingredients: potatoes, avocado oil, and salt and vinegar seasoning. Plus, they’re made from non-GMO and ethically sourced ingredients, and are kosher too.
Thrive Market Dragon Fruit Chips
I never really considered dragon fruit as a snack or smoothie addition until I tried Starbucks’ Mango Dragonfruit Refresher. I loved that the dried dragon fruit pieces in the drink were sweet with a little tang, and of course, they turned my drink pink. I bought these fruit chips looking for a similar experience, and I’ve found it’s a fun fruit to snack on when I’m looking to mix things up. They have a good amount of fiber and vitamin C, and since they only contain one ingredient — dragon fruit — they can an easy snack for those who are looking for something paleo, gluten-free, or vegan.
Zellee Organic Fruit Jel Variety Pack
If I had to describe Zellee’s Fruit Jel in three words, they would be “Jell-O, but healthy.” These tasty snacks come in individual pouches you usually see with baby food or applesauce, so they’re convenient to take on the go. They taste like real fruit and get their jelly-ness from konjac root, so there’s no gelatin and therefore, no bovines were harmed in the making of this product. They’re vegan, gluten-free, and organic.
Thrive Market Lightly Salted Plantain Chips
The plantain chips are made out of three ingredients —plantains, non-hydrogenated vegetable oil, and sea salt — and they’re delicious on their own or with a dip. Expect to open and finish a bag of these in one or two sittings, even though it’s a pretty good size for $2 per bag. They’re also vegan, non-GMO, and free of preservatives and sweeteners and additives. — Mara Leighton, senior reporter
Simple Mills Fine Ground Sea Salt Almond Flour Crackers
These crackers are a good, simple snack that you can eat in handfuls without feeling greasy and lethargic after. They’re also vegan and gluten-free. — Mara Leighton, senior reporter
Thrive Market Organic Dark Chocolate Almonds
These dark chocolate almonds are expensive at $15, but they’re also delicious and the chocolate is layered on nice and thick over the almonds. The bag is decently sized, so it lasted me a few sweet-tooth snacking sessions. They’re also certified organic and reportedly ethically sourced. — Mara Leighton, senior reporter
