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.
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!
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.
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
Delicious. Good portions. Great value for money. Delivery always early. Try the juices too.
Everything about shopping with THRIVE is easy. Any questions are answered quickly. Delivery driver never stops smiling. Happy workers and great products. Would recommend to anyone. Even fussy eaters will find something here. Juices are a fabulous addiction. Just brilliant
Blend and overpriced
Dissapointing blend small meal. Spend two dollar more and you get a good portion freshly made at your local Thai.
Missleading packaging with ingredients which are not in the meal.
Did not contain the 325g mentioned on packaging.
Subscription variety a let down
My rating is based on comparing with other subscription services which vary meals each week. I was disappointed to find I had to vary my meals early in week (for the following week) even before I’d tried many. The taste was good - flavourful. The meals are freezable. But just lacking the simplicity of variety I would have preferred
Diverse Flavours and Complete Macros
I looked for an option where the flavours were diverse enough to keep things interesting, and also have a mix of high calories and low calories based on my objectives at the time. I think this, with the complete macro count of high protein, carbs and fats have made it an easy choice. Definitely be ordering more!
Great flavour, great option for clean eating, great option for keto/low carb
I've tried plenty of frozen healthy meals, including YouFoodz. But Thr1ve is the best - it's all clean sourced eating which none of the other frozen meal companies offer. Plus it's not loaded with salt like most other frozen meals.
Great option for keto/low carb diets, high protein, low sodium, I'm a convert.
I read the negative comments about bland/flavourless. Not sure what these people are expecting (it's a $12 frozen meal, not Vue De Monde).
It's got great flavour for everyday meals. Looking for a frozen meal, that's high protein with clean ingredients without a laundry list of chemicals/fillers - this is it.
AMAZING! Fresh and Delicious
I've ordered Thr1ve as I was interested in the Keto meals and they have made my keto transition so easy. I was worried as I've used other meal services in the past and have had chicken that was fatty and meals I didnt enjoy and have thrown them out. All of the meals I have ordered have been of a high quality. The veggies are always fresh and the chicken is cooked to perfection without chewy bits. Today I had the clean chicken and veg and for a meal that should be bland there was so much flavour with the lemon broth for the chicken keeping it mo...ist. I'm very impressed by the quality of meals and I'd say they're fantastic value for money because I actually finish the meal and am satisfied. Will definitely be ordering more and recommending. My only critique is that I would love to see more Keto options on the menu.
Decent size portion.
Received my pack yesterday wrapped in foil I like the variety of menu. Chicken rendang and pull beef dishes are flavoursome and tasty. Packaging is easy to peel off and warm up. Shared with a colleague and was very happy.
Full of flavour, Good portion, Freshness and Lean
Used to have frozen meals and competitors products, not happy but with Thr1ve, I found better portion size, full of favour in both western & international cuisines, veggie very fresh even after heating up in microwave like a freshly cook meal. Highlight for a gym junkie like me is the Thr1ve meals are very lean and low carb, help me to feel much better to eat for my fat loss goal. Beautiful and happy meals for busy people like me. No grocery, no kitchen mess, no cleaning. Yay, will keep ordering these yummy meals

Alright but bland
Healthy is important, but the poached eggs on bread was very bland in taste. Food needs to be healthy and tasty. The positive though is that I don't feel bloated after the meal. I think it's gluten free and they use free range eggs but not 100% sure.
Bland and boring
Pretty disappointed with the food so far, everything was quite bland and I got bored of eating it 3 bites in. Even the Rendang curry which is supposed to be quite spicy had no flavour in it what so ever. Not what you want to get after spending so much.
