Funky Monkey Snack Review


Recently I was sent a package of Funky Monkey Fruit Snacks to review. I was very excited because our family loves to eat dried fruit. To my surprise this was very different from most dried fruit because it is freeze dried which makes for a crunchy sweet snack. These snacks are 100% real fruit no sugar added, a raw vegan food, peanut and tree nut free (great snack for play dates where children may have allergies) and their unique freeze dry process helps retain the flavor and nutrients of the fruit. Funky Monkey snacks contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and NO high fructose corn syrup, that is a huge must for any snacks we buy. Plus each ounce of Funky Monkey snacks contain 3 servings of fruit. The snacks come in the 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: pineapple and guava
Purple Funk: organic banana and organic acai


The two flavors we enjoyed the most are the Banana varieties. Bananamon (banana and cinnamon) and Purple Funk (bananas and acai). I feel like most kids and adults would enjoy these flavors.



The second flavors we enjoyed are the Applemon (apples and cinnamon), my favorite by far but not the overall of everyone who tried them, and the MangOJ (mango and orange juice).



These three flavors were our least favorite. Although I am sure other people may enjoy the flavors I realize we are not the most adventuress of tasters. We did enjoy eating the pineapple pieces out of the Carnival mix!

These snacks would also be great to take on long trips, camping, for an emergency pack, to donate to families who need food, to send overseas or to college students. The long shelf live allows these snacks to be very useful for long term storing.

You can purchase Funky Monkey Snacks at Target, Whole Foods, Safeway, and online at Amazon.com.

You can play some fun activities on their site or follow them on twitter.
