Funky Monkey Dried Fruit Snacks "Fruit that Crunches": Review and GIveaway


I'm celebrating the first year anniversary of my blog, and am happy that Funky Monkey offered to help me celebrate by offering another giveaway.   In  August 2010 I did a review of their dried fruit snacks!   You can read my previous  review here of the Funky Monkey Snacks Each ounce of Funky Monkey contains three servings of fruit, providing a snack that is delicious, healthy and convenient.

 Once again I gathered my family to help me taste test the snacks.    Since we'd already reviewed them before we knew we were in for a treat!   We sampled all seven flavors of Funky Monkey Snacks--Applemon, Bananamon, Carnaval Mix, JiveALime, Mango OJ, Pink Pineapple, and Purple Funk.  We liked them all and quickly gobbled them up.  My two favorite were JiveALime and Pink Pineapple because I prefer the tart ones.   The overall favorite of everyone was the Carnaval Mix.  



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

  1. Oh, they have Funky Monkey products at Target... I will have to look for them. I make a gluten-free scone with dried fruit, and the more exotic the flavor of fruit, the tastier the scone!
