Thrive Bar Review – Created by the Founders of the MacroBar

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, December 21, 2016 Under: Food Reviews

 

FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE, & TODDLERS 18 Months+*

THE PRODUCT:
Created upon the principles of the macrobiotic diet, GoMacro’s newest line - Thrive – includes bars made up of a superfood ancient grain blend, which also contain 100% plant-based protein, essential fatty acids and prebiotic fiber to fuel your body and mind. Furthermore, the line is non-GMO, Organic, Kosher and free of gluten, soy and dairy, as well as any artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

Available in 6 unique flavors, including: Ginger Lemon, Almond Apricot, Caramel Coconut, Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip, Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt and Blueberry Lavender, these chewy and nutty bars will give you just the right amount of sweet with each delicious bite.


NUTRITION-WISE:
Using whole foods, complex carbs and healthy fats to create a nutrient dense bar with better absorption of vitamins and minerals, GoMacro’s newest Thrive line stays true to the macrobiotic promise of better health, a balanced lifestyle and a concern for the environment and all its inhabitants. They also hold true to the concept of adding ingredients for a purpose: to help you feel better on the inside and out.

With each bar coming in around 180 calories, 90 of which come from healthy fats, they also contain approximately 5 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of sugar, depending on the flavor you choose.

*Thrive bars are made up of healthy, Organic ingredients, most of which are relatively easy to chew and are therefore good for both toddlers and adults alike.  However, you will find chunks of nuts, dried fruit and/or dairy-free chocolate in them, so unless your child has at least one set of molars, it is best to hold off until they can chew more thoroughly.


THE COMPANY:
GoMacro was founded in 2004 by mother and daughter team, Amelia Kirchoff and Jola Sonkin. When Amelia was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003, both women decided to take on the Macrobiotic Diet after research revealed that the whole grains, beans, fresh fruit and vegetable-based diet, along with the elimination of eggs, dairy, refined sugars, additives and processed foods, could help to heal Amelia and prevent further illness.

As Amelia got better, so did her appetite – and craving for sweets. Living on a farm, she began to experiment with the fruits and grains grown, as well as with local organic sweeteners to create wholesome, nutritious treats. When her daughter, Jola, tasted them she couldn’t believe how delicious they were and decided to call them 
MacroTreats. This was the beginning of GoMacro.

In September of 2004, Jola introduced the MacroTreats to local health food stores and their popularity quickly grew. From there, the barn was renovated to accommodate a small commercial kitchen where the MacroBar was soon born. As the popularity of the MacroBar grew, so did the kitchen. Today, GoMacro is housed in a facility in nearby Viola, and the farm is used for research and development. GoMacro has experienced double digit growth since its inception and now, has included Thrive Bars to its list of accomplishments, selling them throughout the US, Canada, Japan and UK.
