Funky Monkey Snacks Review and Giveaway


Do you ever feel guilty or get tired of giving your children the same snacks over and over again?  Are you always looking for new, fun and healthy snack ideas 


Funky Monkey Snacks are all-natural and made with real fruit.  Their freeze-drying process creates a tasty fruit that crunches.  Funky Monkey Snacks are gluten, wheat, dairy, peanut and tree nut free!  

Funky Monkey Snacks are fun, fresh and healthy - the perfect freeze dried fruit snack!  As a mom, I love the fact that there are three servings of fruit in every one ounce bag!  They also come in brightly colored packages which are sure to capture the attention of your child.

The flavor I was most excited to try was the Pink Pineapple and my children were most excited to try the Bananamon. I'll admit that it was a hard choice when looking at all the flavors though.

Of course, we shared the bags between all of us so that we could all sample the flavors.  The kids weren't sure what to think at first, Funky Monkey Snacks are like nothing they have ever tasted before.  My kids aren't picky eaters, so I was positive that they would like them.

My instincts were correct, the kids really liked them.  Although my daughter likes them more than my son does, or maybe he just hasn't had the pleasure of eating them as much because she's always eating them.  Either way, they were a hit!  Our favorites ended up being Applemon, Bananamon and the Carnival Mix.  Our least favorite was Purple Funk, which was kinda sad because purple is my favorite color and I loved the name.

Fun, Tasty and Funky - What could be better than that?


Funky Monkey Snacks come in a variety of tasty flavors:

Applemon (Apple and Organic Cinnamon)
Bananamon (Organic Banana and Organic Cinnamon)
Carnaval Mix (Organic Banana, Organic Pineapple, Apple and
Papaya)
JiveALime (Organic Pineapple and Organic Lime Juice)
MangOJ (Mango and Orange Juice)
Pink Pineapple (Organic Pineapple and Guava)
Purple Funk (Organic Banana and Organic A├žai)


You can find Funky Monkey Snacks at stores nationwide; Target, Safeway, Kroger and Whole Foods as well as online at Amazon, just to name a few.

They add no sugars or sweeteners--these are the next thing to raw fruit, but freeze-dried to preserve and lock in nutrients.
