Anything having to do with food usually piques my interest, especially if it has to do with natural or organic foods and the like. I’ve been curious about Thrive Market for sometime now, but have been intimidated by the idea of a fee type based grocery membership. They have a 30 day trial available, which was what enabled me to try it for the first time. So for my 1st order, I got the following. Not a very big order, just a few things to see how the process would go.
They also had a couple of specials going on, possibly because it was my 1st order?… all I know is that I got a free Seasons Eatings Holiday Magazine – which includes quite a bit of recipes, a free jar of Nutiva Virgin Coconut Oil (15oz), 20% discount off of my entire order, and free shipping. My order was a little over $16 total after the discount.
It arrived in a fairly large box, and packed pretty well with what I assume are recycled materials. I love that they used those mesh like papers instead of bubble wrap! Pretty cool! And I like the idea that for every membership created, they donate a membership to a family in need.
These are the items I purchased:
- Dirt Breath Spray in Clean Mint
- Jason Purifying Tea Tree Pure Natural Deodorant Stick
- Jason Power Smile Antiplaque & Whitening Toothpaste in Powerful Peppermint
- Justin’s Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
The only problem is that I can get most of these things from my local natural food store, so this probably isn’t the best thing for me. However, if you aren’t able to get these items locally, and you need/want them, then I’d recommend going with a membership. It’s not bad $59.95/year, they ship to your door, and you get your order within a reasonable timeframe (I placed my order on 1/4 and received it 1/9).
