Lots of veg and filling but VERY VERY bland
I ordered the Keto based meals for myself and my husband as a quick, grab and go for mid week lunches. There was LOTS of veg, so it was quite filling but the taste was SOOOOOOO Bland and boring. The Veg was watery and mushy to begin with, so add in another 3 minutes in the mircowave and it was barely holding together. The beef in Korean dish was full of little bits of fatty gristle and makes me gag even thinking about it now. So disappointed in this.
Navigation of the Thrive online store was OK. Their range was OK but could have been more diverse.
Meals bought looked and tasted frankly awful/inedible and we were extremely disappointed. Everything was unappealing, nothing looked like the meals on the website and the quantities seemed smaller too. The remainder of the order was dispatched to the compost bin, so the trial was a waste of money too. So disappointing.
We've used Hello Fresh in the past and it was fabulous, with excellent quality fresh food, easy instructions and every me...al turned out perfectly and was delicious, so we can thoroughly recommended Hello Fresh. Perhaps that experience lulled us into a false sense of security. The impetus for trying Thrive was getting pre-made, supposedly nourishing meals seemed to be time saving and convenient. Sadly that was not the case as the meals were inedible. We contacted Thrive to advise our disappointment and they haven't responded. We haven't asked for a refund but are providing this honest feedback so that others may not have the same negative experience or that Thrive might lift its game and provide quality, persistently delicious and healthy meals.
Don’t waste your money. Disgusting!
Meals bland. Some of the meals tasted like they’d been dipped in dishwater. Disgusting! Don’t waste your money. Did it as a trial. So disappointed and never put in another order only to find they automatically delivered another box of disgusting meals.
Healthy, but boring food.
Bought 1 week Keto meal for 2 people.
-Yes, meals are healthy.
-However, meals are boring. No innovation has happened to make meals enticing.
-Dont know why people think that healthy food needs to have no character.
-Its like some one did a job but did not prepare a food with Love.
The worse customer service ever
They ignore delivery errors and continue to make them. Customer service don’t return calls or don’t reply within a reasonable time. They clearly have comprehension issues when problems addressed.
Food can be bland. Some items poor quality. Pointless contacting customer service because they are rude and in the end blame the customer.
They seem to have missed the first lesson in customer service .... the customer is always right ... even when they are wrong!
Was becoming a loyal returning customer. Till last order the box was a day late. 0 explanation or real care via email but ok I can deal with 1 day late.
When the box shows up next day it is warm, Ice packs are water and meals are warm to touch.
It was on my doorstep for 5 mins so it had been in the truck like this.
And obviously wherever it was was not refrigerated overnight.
I email this to customer service and get told they are refrigerated so all is fine.
Well I'm sorry but my meals were not obviously something had gone wrong with the m...
Well, that was disappointing. I was really excited to try their low carb options, I was really let down by the quality and the taste. They use really cheap cuts of meat and frozen produce... you can tell the difference. The amount of protein per meal is tiny, I had about 4 tiny cubes of chicken in a “stirfry” I grabbed a fork and I could literally push all the “food” to the corner of the container. It looks like mush. Let me tell you about the taste...oh actually there is nothing to tell because it the blandest thing I’ve ever eaten.
Delivery and meals
I would not use this company I have only had 1 delivery turn up all the others I have ordered never shows up I have to chase them up all the time and always get told it will take 3 days for a customer service rep to contact me . This is a joke but they are quick to take my money
Don’t waste your time or money with this joke of a company
Tasty & Convenient
I just finished my first week of Thrive meals. I’ve tried other food companies since I started my weight loss journey and Thrive was by far the best for taste. Delivery was easy too.
The Spiced Chicken Biriyani was a stand out - not what I’d normally eat but thought I’d give it a go and was so glad I did. The flavour was amazing. The only thing I wish was that they had a bigger breakfast range, but other than that it’s a 10/10 from me.
Food is great quality, tasty and is helping me achieve my health and wellness goals. Had a hiccup with delivery but they were able to sort it out. Highly recommend giving Thrive a try.
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
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.
