Before Christmas, I decided to make a purchase from Thrive. I stocked up on some basics, and bought a few Christmas presents as well. Here’s what I got!
Dark Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Bars: This is the smoothest organic chocolate bar I’ve ever had.
Taza Sea Salt & Almond Stone Ground Chocolate: I like the grainy texture of these bars.
Chocolove Almond & Sea Salt in Dark Chocolate: One of my favorite chocolate bars of all time.
Lulu’s Maca Buttercups: The sprouted almond butter was what drew me to these. I haven’t tried them since they were a gift.
Newman’s Own Oranic Wintergreen Mints: I’ve also never tried these – another gift.
Boomchickapop Lightly Sweet Popcorn: This is basically like kettle corn. A bit addicting. This was a gift.
Jackson’s Honest Organic Potato Chips: I like these for Helen since they’re organic and made with healthy coconut oil.
Krave Pork Jerky, Black Cherry Barbecue: Also don’t know what I think about this one, because it was gift for my dad.
Sea Snax Original: I was stocking up on these for Helen, but I think I should have bought more: we only have a few packages left!
Unbleached Parchment Paper: I just love this stuff.
Sky Valley Sriracha Sauce: I’m still making my decision on this stuff. It’s good hot sauce, but not sure if I like the flavor as well as the generic sriracha brand.
Real Salt: Just stocking up.
Spry Gum: My favorite “natural” chewing gum.
Nutiva Red Palm Oil: We LOVE red palm oil for making popcorn.
Justin’s Classic Peanut Butter: I like this because it’s smoother than most natural peanut butters, but it isn’t sweet.
Acure Repairing Conditioner: I really like the almond scent that this has.
Dr. Bronner’s Baby Castile Soap: I wanted a mild, organic soap for when the new baby arrives.
Earth Mama Angel Baby New Mama Bottom Spray: Moms will know what this stuff is. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm: I had almost run out of diaper cream for Helen, so I wanted to stock up for when baby comes.
And that’s everything I got from Thrive Market!
Last Sunday (January 17) was my birthday! I turned 26 years old.
Here are some food-related items I got from my family:
Chuao Honeycomb Chocolate Bar: I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m sure it’s super yummy.
Chuao Potato Chip Chocolate Bar: Now this is really yummy. Love the crunchy bits of potato chip.
Bamboo Salt Box: I’ve been wanting one of these for a while!
Bamboo Knife + Spoon: I’m a sucker for wooden utensils. These will be great for food photography!
KitchenAid Stick Blender: Another item I’ve been wanting for a long time. Can’t wait to use it!
So that’s my Birthday + Thrive Market Haul!
If you’d like, tell me in the comments how old you’re turning on your birthday!

Everything looks delicious...especially all the unique dark chocolate! My favorite kind of gift. An immersion blender is a great gift as well...I had one before we moved back from overseas, but didn't get to bring it. I have a thrifted one now that I only use for soap-making but would love a brand new stainless steel one for cooking. Happy Birthday! And I'll be 25 in the summer.

Hi Erica ~ Happy belated birthday! Thanks for showing us all of the goodies; so many of them I've never tried. I'd also never heard of Thrive Market, but because of you, I've set up an account with them! I'm curious as to how you find all of these unique websites? And by the way, I'll be 57 in October! ~ Laurie in California :)

This stuff looks great, I'll have to try the brown butter chocolate, sounds dangerously good :) Also, I love the Newman's Own mints. Once their in your mouth, you can't tell they're healthy. :) They taste great, and really do leave your mouth feeling freshened.
