CONTEST IS OVER! CONGRATS TO Jeanie COMMENT #92!
Ever had a time when you ran out of ideas for healthy snacks for your kids? Something that is healthy but your kids will enjoy it? Ugh, I know I have, many times. It gets super tiring trying to figure out healthy snacks all the time. Sometimes I just want something to be easy. Funky Monkey is a freeze dried fruit, that is natural and healthy for your kids. A great snack idea! Yeah!
I received several packages of the Funky Monkey Snacks to enjoy with my family. My kids favorite was the Bananamon, as was mine. They did not really care for the Purple Funk, only because I am not sure they could figure out what the fruit was suppose to be, and they are very picky eaters! But, I loved the packages they came in and how easy they are to open. Great for on the road or playing outside, these snacks give your little ones the boost they need, in a healthy way. I like that!
A Bit About Funky Monkey Snacks (taken from their press release):
Founded in 2006 with the mission of nourishing healthy lifestyles by providing delicious, convenient, quality snacks that are 100% natural, Funky Monkey Snacks are all-natural, real fruit made using a proprietary freeze-drying process that creates Fruit That Crunches!® while
retaining fruit’s natural goodness.
Funky Monkey Snacks are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, peanut and tree nut free, and contain no added sugars, colors, flavors or preservatives. They are produced in Brazil, near
where the fruit is grown to ensure that 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 Styrofoamlike
texture, Funky Monkey’s proprietary method of freeze drying creates a snack that has the
crunchy appeal of more traditional snack foods, with three servings of fruit in every ounce. Full
slices and pieces of fruit are used, not small dices typically found in other types of fruit-basedsnacks.
Funky Monkey snacks come in some great flavors such as:
Applemon (Freeze-Dried Apple and Organic Cinnamon),
Bananamon (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana and Organic Cinnamon),
Carnaval Mix (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana, Organic Pineapple, Apple and
JiveALime (Freeze-Dried Organic Pineapple and Organic Lime Juice),
MangOJ (Freeze-Dried Mango and Orange Juice),
Pink Pineapple (Freeze-Dried Organic Pineapple and Guava), and
Purple Funk (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana and Organic Açai)
Funky Monkey’s freeze-drying method also uses less energy than other processes by utilizing thermodynamics and steam from a cashew shell-powered boiler. Further supporting its mission to be environmentally respectful, Funky Monkey only uses organic bananas, pineapples, cinnamon, açai and lime juice, eliminating the use of chemicals.
