January 2023 Thrive Life Food Storage specials


Just a reminder, these are in no particular order. My opinions are just that – I know I don’t speak for everyone. 


Let’s get to it.

I’m not a huge blackberry fan, but they do taste just like blackberries!
If you like blackberries, then you’ll most likely enjoy these.


You can purchase blackberries to add to your food storage HERE.



Crunchy and sweet. What’s not to love?

The only problem is, there’s no hiding the fact that you’ve been snacking on them.  After a handful of these, your tongue, teeth, and lips will be a beautiful shade of deep blueish-purpleish-blackish.  But don’t worry-  that’s all natural color right there. Wanna know how I know?

There’s one ingredient in this can: blueberries. 

No additives.

No preservatives.

Just blueberries.

25 year shelf life.

I personally get the blueberries in the pantry can size, because I like them super fresh and crisp. This is one of those fruits that does get soft and chewy after being open for a few weeks, so if you’re not going to go through an entire number 10 can within a few weeks, I recommend ordering these in the pantry can size. It just depends on how quickly you’ll go through them.

Diced Chicken

By now, I think I’ve made it clear that I am not a fan of anything other than freshly cooked chicken. This tastes like microwaved chicken to me when I reconstitute it. It makes sense – it’s not Thrive’s fault. It’s just the nature of cooking meat and then reheating it later. I don’t fault Thrive – just my picky taste buds.

BUT, most people think this tastes totally fine. So unless you’re a chicken snob like me, this would be a good addition to your food storage.

Really awesome veggie straight out of the can or reconstituted and cooked!

If I am wanting some warm fresh broccoli with dinner, I just throw some of this in a pot with some water and bring it to a boil and cook it for a couple minutes, just like I would do with a frozen veggie. It is SO nice to always have fresh veggies available. And can you imagine how amazing it would be to have this if you didn’t have access to fresh produce?!?!

Shredded Cheddar Cheese

YES. Yes to all the cheese.


Can you imagine life without cheese?

Especially life where you are already limited on certain foods, so you’re having to improvise a little (or a lot)?
Cheese just makes everything go down a little bit easier, amiright?


This is 100% cheddar cheese. It’s a weird phenomenon eating dry, somewhat crunchy cheese from a can, but it’s crazy how the taste is 100% there, even before reconstituting it.


After reconstituting it, you have totally normal, functional cheese. It even melts like regular cheese!

Instant Black Beans

I am not used to using anything other than canned black beans, so these seem a little mushy to me. 

The consistency turned out somewhere in the middle of canned black beans and refried beans.

These are a stretch for me, because they cost so much more than normal cans of black beans from the grocery store.  Since cans of beans typically have a shelf life of over a year from when you purchase them, it just makes sense to save the money and be vigilant about always making sure we have several cans in our pantry at any given time.

Onion Slices

I spent all of December raving about the chopped onions. These taste just as good and cook up just as well. I just prefer them to be smaller, so I like the chopped onions. But, if you didn’t add those to your cart last month, snag some of these.

They’re quick and easy and so much better than crying while you slice up a fresh onion.

Instant Brown Rice

I made this and it was great!

However, just like the black beans, I can’t stomach paying this much for rice when I can get it from the store for a fraction of the price.  Normal brown rice in a bag stays good for 6 months and you can make it last longer by using mylar bags or buckets.  So to me, this isn’t worth the price.

Can Rotation Systems

Amazing.  Can’t recommend the freestanding rotator enough.  It makes rotating all my canned goods from the store a breeze, and also gives me a place to put a few of the Thrive Life items that I use on a regular basis (things like egg powder, sour cream powder, chopped onions, etc).

I share my thoughts about why I love these so much in this post.
