Funky Monkey Review & Giveaway...


Even though I am still gripping onto everyday last day of summer, let's face it....back to school is looming.  For some, I think it may even be next week!  The prospect of back to school has me thinking about school snacks for the first time.  Have I mentioned A&W will be going to pre-school for the first time?  That is an entirely different post and one that requires loads of tissues!  In any case I am thinking about fun, healthy and tasty snacks to include in their little lunch bags.  Funky Monkey Snacks has alreay earned a spot in our permanent rotation.

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 uses full slices and pieces of real fruits, not the small dices found in other freeze-dried fruit products. Each ounce of Funky Monkey contains three servings of fruit, providing a snack that is delicious, healthy and convenient.  Sold!  This snack is healthy and it sounds interesting and yummy enough for the whole family to enjoy.  I was very excited when Funky Monkey sent me some of their snacks so we could see if they were as delicious as they sounded.

Good news....these snacks really ARE as delicious as they sound.  This really is "fruit that crunches" and between the satisfying crunch and sweetness it really is a great snack.  On top of being a great tasting snack they are also excellent for you.  Take my personal favorite, Carnaval Mix, it only has 45 calories in the whole bag but it is 3 full servings of fruit.  Not too shabby!  Funky Monkey comes in 7 yummy flavors and you will surely find one that is a hit for each person in your family.  My boys liked them all but they seemed to enjoy the Applemon (apples and cinnamon) the best.  Another plus is Funky Monkey Snacks are gluten, wheat, peanut, tree nut and dairy free which is so important to families with food allergies. 

I think Funky Monkey Snacks are a great addition to your pantry and to your child's lunchbox.  I am so glad to have found these just in time to send my boys off to (sniff, sniff) their first day of pre-school!  You can purchase Funky Monkey Snacks online at Amazon.com or visit here to find a location near you.
