Funky Monkey Snacks Review and Giveaway

 

I was recently given the opportunity to sample all seven flavors of Funky Monkey Snacks--Applemon, Bananamon, Carnaval Mix, JiveALime, Mango OJ, Pink Pineapple, and Purple Funk.



Here's some information about the snacks:


Funky Monkey Snacks are a line of freeze-dried fruit that are 100% natural, 100% real fruit, and 100% delicious – with three servings of fruit in each 1oz bag!  Our “fruit that crunches” provides the ultimate snack, fusing the great taste, smell, and nutritional goodness of fresh fruit with the crunch and convenience of conventional snacks.  Here are some additional Funky Monkey highlights:

•       Funky Monkey Snacks have no added colors, flavors, sugars, or preservatives
•       Our special, proprietary manufacturing process provides for a crunchier texture vs. conventional freeze-drying techniques
•       We use full slices and pieces (not dices) of delicious, fresh fruit

•       Funky Monkey is made in Brazil using tropical fruits at the peak of freshness
•       Our products are gluten-free and are certified Kosher
•       One of our 7 flavors, Purple Funk, also includes açai, a berry from the Amazon that is viewed as the newest superfood

 My two kids and I sat down and sampled all the flavors and picked out our favorites.   I loved the tart ones best like JiveALime and Pink Pineapple.   My son basically liked them all.   We all three loved the Carnavale Mix which is just a combination of all the flavors in one bag.   The interesting thing is we all thought the combo was better than the individual flavors even if we liked the flavors.   Maybe we're just weird! 




You can check out the Funky Monkey website and view the flavors.

  35. I love pineapple and lime, so the JiveALime would probably be the one I like best, but the mix sounds really good too, and I actually just got a pack of the Purple Funk snacks - haven't tasted them yet, but they sounded too interesting to pass up!
