“Suncakes and Heart Thrives are food after my own heart—high in fiber and good for the body. I recommend them highly as a wholesome alternative to other bars."

"I'm an obesity researcher at a food policy institute, so I am especially inclined to pay compliments when I come across worthwhile food products. We live in a world of processed foods, and they are the staple of the American diet. So, when I see a healthy unprocessed snack or meal replacement (especially one made in an environmentally responsible way), it always makes me happy."

"Outstanding Products. By eating the Heart Thrives twice daily in my 'Body For Life' Fitness and Eating program, I have dropped 7 lbs. in 20 days. They are a perfect carb/protein balance as a meal, and great to take along on a mountain bike ride as an energy booster." 
C.S., Ellicot City, MD

"I just want to say thank you from my whole heart. I lost 30lbs after incorporating these into my diet. I was first introduced to Heart Thrive while in the military stationed in Alaska, they carried these in the hospital on base. Absolutely love them! Thank you for such a wonderful and healthy product. Loyal customer from here on out.”
