Funky Monkey Snacks Review (and a Giveaway)



 Info (from the website)

Funky Monkey Snacks are all-natural real fruit made using a proprietary freeze-drying process that creates Fruit That Crunches!® while retaining fruit's natural goodness. Funky Monkey uses full slices and pieces of real fruits, not the small dices found in other freeze-dried fruit products. Each ounce of Funky Monkey contains three servings of fruit, providing a snack that is delicious, healthy and convenient.

Here are some Funky Monkey facts:

• Funky Monkey Snacks have no added colors, flavors, sugars, or preservatives
• Their special, proprietary manufacturing process provides for a crunchier texture vs. conventional freeze-drying techniques
• They use full slices and pieces (not dices) of delicious, fresh fruit
• Funky Monkey is made in Brazil (not China!) using tropical fruits at the peak of freshness
• Their products are gluten-free, certified Kosher, and certified non-GMO
• They have 7 flavors- Applemon, Bananamon, MangoOJ, JiveAlime, Purple Funk, Pink Pineapple, and Carnavel Mix.
• One of our 7 flavors, Purple Funk, also includes a├žai, a berry from the Amazon that is viewed as the newest  superfood.


Benefits of the snacks (from the website)

Funky Monkey's unique freeze-drying process maintains nearly all of the flavor and nutrients found in fresh fruit, and creates a fun crunch.

Other snacks - like dried fruit or fruit "snacks" do not provide all the nutrients of fresh fruits and can contain added sugars (including high-fructose corn syrup) colors flavors and preservatives.



My review:

Funky Monkey (http://www.funkymonkeysnacks.com/) not only is the name great the snacks inside are even better! We opened the box and right away we started picking out of favorites, my daughter went for the MangOJ, I went for the JiveALime, my husband went for the Bananamon and the Applemon (he's got a thing for cinnamon, we're looking into getting him help!) The thing we noticed right away was the textures of the fruits, the MangOJ was really crunchy like a candy and the Applemon was in between it was soft with a little firmness. We all came to the same conclusions.....these are great!

Not only are the great, they're good for you! The freeze drying technique Funky Monkey employs keeps almost all the nutrients and flavors found in the fruit before freezing, and speaking from the experience of eating a few bags it has ALL the flavor and then some! They're kosher, allergy friendly and just plain good for you. If you don't get enough fruit or your kids loathe eating fruit try Funky Monkey, believe me you will be singing the praises of these delicious snacks!

I would choose the Applemon ~ they all sound yummy, but since I'm allergic to bananas & mango, that rules out a lot...
