Funky Monkey Snacks Review and Giveaway

Do you have trouble getting your kids to eat a variety of foods?  Like I sometimes do?  If our kids are what they eat, then mine are quickly becoming hotdogs and cheese.  But, recently, we had the opportunity to try Funky Monkey Snacks, and the kids love to see that little monkey come out at snack time!

About the product…

Funky Monkey Snacks were created to bring delicious healthy snacks to everyone.  There are a TON of delicious snacks on the market, but few that are delicious AND healthy.  Funky Monkey steps into the gap and combines the great taste of fresh fruit with the satisfying crunch of your favorite snack.  In doing so, they provide convenient full sized servings of fruit in a freeze dried package that will tickle your taste buds.

Funky Monkey Snacks are all natural and are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy free, peanut and tree-nut free, and contain no added sugars, preservatives, flavors, or colors.  Using a proprietary method of freeze drying fruit, full slices of real fruit are used to make this crunchy snack with three servings of fruit in every ounce.

Funky Monkey Snacks are available in seven funky flavors…

  • Applemon™ (Freeze-Dried Apple and Organic Cinnamon)
  • Bananamon® (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana and Organic Cinnamon)
  • Carnaval Mix™ (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana, Organic Pineapple, Apple and
    Papaya)
  • JiveALime® (Freeze-Dried Organic Pineapple and Organic Lime Juice)
  • MangOJ™ (Freeze-Dried Mango and Orange Juice)
  • Pink Pineapple™ (Freeze-Dried Organic Pineapple and Guava)
  • Purple Funk® (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana and Organic Açai)

Funky Monkey Snacks are USDA certified organic and are kosher.

What I thought…

We received all seven flavors of Funky Monkey to sample.  The fruit does indeed pack a crunch.  My husband and kids absolutely loved the Funky Monkey Snacks.  I enjoyed them, as well.  My favorite flavor is the Purple Funk, which is freeze dried organic bananas with organic acai.  As you know acai is all the rage right now, and with good reason.  It is a YUMMY food packed with good for you stuff.  Mister really liked the Applemon (freeze dried apple and organic cinnamon) and Sister really liked the MangOJ (freeze dried mango and orange juice).

What I would change…

The Funky Monkey Snacks are delicious as they are.  I would love to see additional flavors added to their line.

How I rate it…
