It was bland
Tried Thrive for 2 weeks to keep my calorie intake under control. There are a few factors, that made me look for another meal delivery service.
1. Meals are quite bland. There was no particular taste to most of the sides. Especially cauliflower/broccoli rice (made out of stems, not actual florets) had no taste at all. It could be delicious, with just a bit more pepper and a little garlic or anything else that adds taste.
2. Things quickly go off. As I was buying a full 7 days set and kept it in the fridge at 3 degrees Celcius, a few dishes sti...
this is my first order
I ordered this for the first time and so happy with it. I have tried many other meal delivery places with healthy food in mind and this is so tasty and filling just love it. The price is so good for what you get and I will def be ordering again. Also their online staff to help are wonderful got a lady today Lyne and was so helpful and quick. thanks
Healthy and Tasty Meals !
Recently made my first Thrive purchase as Im trying to eat a healthier diet in 2021
The website was clean and easy to use and my order was delivered as promised plus I had a couple of free meals added which was an unexpected surprise!
The meal quality I found to be really good, chicken was tender and sauces were yum . My meals were fresh which is also important to me.
I read the reviews on Thirve and was skeptcial but will definately order again as the whole process was easy from start to finish and the quality of the meals I have received is excellent .
Putrid Mess on my veranda - they will not collect! - zero rating
No customer service, they delivered at 6.30am incorrectly to my address, contacted them at 7.00am and again at 8.40am to collect box, again contacted them at 2.00pm and 4.00pm to get rid of the putrid contents. Box sat in the sun for 7 hours, its still here 10 hours later stinking up my veranda. Have asked them four (4) times to collect the box, no luck. I cannot lift a heavy box & put in my garbage (its too big anyway). Are they going to clean up the mess when the rodents decide to have a party? No option for zero stars.
Bland food, 50% of the first order wrong
Thrive is an easy and effective way to purchase pre-made meals. It is cost effective and fast BUT. My first order only contained half of what I actually ordered. The expensive meals I did order were replaced with a lot cheaper meals.
I contacted the compant who were fast to offer the same order again, as in what I ordered but for free. I declined the offer.
They did not however offer to refund the difference in meal costs.
The food itself, while healthy, was bland and tasteless. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone.
Friend sent me some to try as started keto!
The meals weren’t too bad. Delivery was prompt. A little confused as seems there is added sugars to help with the preservation I suppose?
I prefer Nourish’d meals, ALL gluten free, vego and keto options available.
Not Keto at all!
Ordered from thrive as I wanted to restart my keto diet. I ordered only what they classified as “keto friendly”. Despite what they claim, their meals are not keto at all. Most of them have >10 g of sugar and starch and added sugar very common ingredients. They are not that tasty either.. Delivery was alright, late by one hour.
Incapable of delivering meals effectively
I like that Thrive offers low carb options and ordering individual meals. The food is fine, sometimes a little bland but not offensive, especially since I'm choosing foods designed to a certain nutritional profile. Some of the meals freeze OK.
My issue is that of four orders, not a single one has been delivered without a problem. I've had to chase up customer service for every single order and arrange another delivery. Two times it was not taken to my door in my unit complex (and one of these times I found it in the garage on top of another u...nit's hot water system??) and two times it was late. The most recent time, I was getting the text messages telling me that my order was coming that morning, my order is arriving around X time (so I waited for it instead of leaving for work), the order was five minutes away, and then... nothing. No order delivered. The online tracker suddenly says it's coming tomorrow. I've used meal delivery services a lot and none of the others has even once failed to deliver where and when they said. I order meal deliveries because I don't have time to prepare meals so I certainly don't have time to chase up customer service to find out where my meals are. I've given Thr1ve chance after chance but now I'll never use them again.

Delivery Late & Food Very Average
I was so excited to get organised and have a healthy meal prep. Unfortunately my delivery was amost 2 days late so i had to go and shop for food for the first few days. Then I started with the meals.. Lots of overpowering flavours, mushy textures and when heated, lots of water left in the containers. Also, there was a meal that came with avodaco, sealed in ready to be heated... who wants warm avocado? (no-one is the answer!)
I have tried another meal prep company and I will definitely go back to them and not order again.
Such a disappointment!
I was really looking forward to trying Thrive. My first meal of chicken cacciatore was nice, however after that the meals were really disappointing. The vegetables were already overcooked and soggy even before they were re-heated. I found a bone in my lemon chicken which just tasted like they’d squeezed some lemon over a piece of chicken. The meals were really unsatisfying and felt hungry afterwards. I ended up throwing out the whole next weeks worth of food it was really disappointing and I wouldn’t ever buy their food again! I’ve since changed to a different brand (You Foodz) and they’re fresh and delicious and I feel full after eating them. Out of 10 I give thrive a zero!
Bland and average.
The value is good, but the food is very bland and doesn't taste that good. I even referred a friend who had similar feedback to give. Won't order again unfortunately. Supermarket frozen meals are better.
I ordered 10 of their meals. When l received them, they looked like the $2 aeroplane meals you can get just with a plastic covering on them and there is no Thrive label on it. Did they buy old airline meals and resell them? I will not buy again as they do not look appealIng, the amount of protein in them is inadequate and left me hungry and from a price point are overpriced, don't compare to their competitors.
My new regular.
I used to be a YouFoodz fan but got sick of their ridiculous in the middle of the night delivery times so tried Thr1ve. Wow! I’ve tried many different ready made meal brands and Thr1ve meals are by far the tastiest. Also perfect if you are watching your calorie intake as they have a large range of low/no carb options and are perfectly portioned yet filling. Better delivery times and better communication on delivery times. I’m converted!

Hair, broken containers and chicken bones
I ordered 10 meals from Thr1ve.
When received I opened it , two broken containers with food everywhere.
This was fine that happens. I had a sealed one for lunch and it had two hairs and two chicken bones. One bone cutting my throat.
At this point why would I want to eat any meals, the sauce was also very bland and tasted watered down.
When I contacted the customer service they refused to refund me and tried to insinuate i had dirty plates and was i certain the hair was not my own, it was a clean plate I used to show the hair.
My partner tried one of her meals, again very bland and another hair. When contacted they said they would only refund for these four meals....To summarise; bland meals, terrible customer service, bad food hygiene and broken packaging. It is a NO from me.
There's better options
The meals were good for the price - when they were what was actually advertised. (For instance, I got a 'Thai Chicken Coconut Curry Soup that was supposed to have big pieces of chicken it - not a single piece of chicken!!) The flavours are nice, for the most part, and for the price you can't complain. I found the portions to be a bit lacking, but I'm a 186cm 90+kg guy, so you may have a different opinion.
The packaging was an absolute disaster. So much needless waste - they've not tried at ALL to make things more sustainable. The amount of plas...
When my meals arrived from Thrive I had a leaking chicken meal, leaking protein shake and a meal that is displayed in the photo not sealed properly. I emailed the customer service line to voice my disappointment with no response. I would NEVER buy from this company again and warn others against it. NO value for money at all. I am actually left out of pocket as I could not have the three meals.
Loving my Thr1ve orders!
The food is great quality and always delicious. I really love the variety provided in the new boxes and find it so wholesome and nourishing.
I am loving the new variety that's coming on the site each week.
Keep doing what you are doing, you have a loyal customer in me.
Not value for Money
I bought a vegan essential box for $130.
Do some ruff calculations if your went to a supermarket to buy it would have all cost maximum $50-$60.
To break it down
2 vegan curries at $15 =$30
1 2kg pumpkin soup $10
Tinny bad quality vegetables = $12 worth.
Total worth = $52
