A Christmas Miracle!  Ice Cream for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner!

Dec 25, 2013

Is it dinner or dessert?  Ice cream, or a nutrition supplement?  It's all of the above, and more!  Thrive is ice cream.  Thrive is nutrition.  Thrive is real food!  Joining us on the program this morning is Chris Dreska, Director of Food Service Channels at Thrive Premium Ice Cream.

After earning a degree in Finance and Accounting from the Ohio State University, Chris worked in the field of his degree for a number of years.  It quickly became clear to Chris that sales was his real gift.  A few years ago, Chris became aware of Thrive, and immediately recognized the concept as a winner!

We can attest from our in-studio tasting experience that this stuff tastes great!  In addition, the 6 oz. individual serving has the exact nutrition profile of a serving of Ensure or Boost - 9 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, 4 probiotic cultures, 24 vitamins and minerals, 550 milligrams of potassium and only 250 calories.

Tests have shown that the reject rate for a typical nutrition supplement is 50%.  Of those that don't reject the drink outright, only 50% finish the drink.  Thrives tests have shown an amazing 100% take-up rate, and 95% completed the entire serving.  Vanilla and chocolate flavors are currently available in select Publix stores.  Four additional flavors:  sugar-free vanilla, mint fudge, strawberry and salted caramel will be available soon!

What could be better?  A meal in an ice cream cup!  For more information, visit their website at, or email Chris at
