Funky Monkey Snacks Review & Giveaway


FRUIT THAT CRUNCHES!


What are Funky Monkey Snacks? These are freeze-dried organic fruit snacks that are all natural and nutritious. I was given the opportunity to try a few of the 7 flavors available: Carnaval Mix (banana, pineapple, apple, and papaya), Purple Funk (banana and acai), and JiveALime (pineapple and lime).

With warm weather, comes the opportunity to get out more – hiking, biking, traveling. The easiest thing to take along in your bag is a bar, but so many of these contain processed ingredients and aren't comparable to the benefits of "whole foods."

Funky Monkey Snacks are all-natural, organic, raw, vegan snacks that are small enough to take anywhere (they come in two sizes and several flavors). They are a great way to sneak in extra fruit into your diet as well.




It comes in small foiled packages to keep fresh. It's also the perfect size for little ones like Brandon to pack in his snack box at preschool. Each package contains 1 serving of fruit. Unlike other dried fruits or fruit chips, Funky Monkey Snacks are not oily.

I was a little disappointed when the fruit snacks got crushed in the mail and half it were crumbs. But they were really tasty and little Brandon really loves them. We both love the super crunchiness! When I mentioned to him about the name of the snacks, it made him think it was something fun to eat. Yes, I think the name was catchy too. Brandon's favorite out of the 3 flavors we had was the Carnival mix because it had a variety of fruits. My favorite is the Purple Funk. Unlike other dried fruits or fruit chips, Funky Monkey Snacks are not oily.

Benefits:
- organic
- vegan
- raw
- gluten-free
- peanut-free
- no sugar added
- no preservatives
- fat-free



I learned that these snacks are produced in Brazil, near where the fruit is grown to ensure all of the premium-quality ingredients are harvested and freeze-dried at the peak of freshness. Different from other freeze-dried fruits on the market which can have a powdery and styrofoam-like texture, Funky Monkey's proprietary method of freeze-dryig creates a snack that has the crunchy appeal of more traditional snack foods.

I love quite a few things about this product. 100% fruit and no sugar added is wonderful. An added bonus is that is it peanut AND tree nut free as we have allergies in my household
