Funky Monkey Healthy Fruit Snacks That Crunch Review & Giveaway, Ends 4/5/13


Good Food
Giveaway details below



As a mom of four I know how hard it can be to get your children to come even close to eating the amounts of fruits and vegetables daily that they should. As a point of reference USDA recommends two fruit servings per day for youngsters ages 2-6 and four servings/day for older children and adults. With today's typical constantly on-the-go family lifestyle fresh fruit isn't always practical. For sure, it can be a real uphill battle with potato chips often winning out as the "vegetable" of choice for kids as young as preschoolers.


One of several citrus trees in our backyard is heavy with fruit right now
That's why I'm glad I discovered a brand called Funky Monkey Snacks. A company that takes both common and exotic fruits, freeze dries them and packages them into bags of crunchy morsels of nutritious deliciousness that are similar in crispy texture to kettle baked potato chips.

For this review I tried each of the Funky Monkey flavors and I thought they tasted sweet like fresh fruit and tart which reminded me a bit of SweeTARTS the candy I practically lived on in elementary school. If you try Funky Monkey yourself I'm betting you'll agree that these smell and taste better and sweeter than potato chips and are a whole lot better for you, besides. Speaking of taste, if your experience is similar to mine, you'll find it hard to believe that no sugars or sweeteners are added to these tasty 100% natural snacks.

Funky Monkey Snacks come in 7 funky & delicious varieties
  • Applemon - Apple with cinnamon
  • Bananamon - Banana with cinnamon
  • Carnaval Mix - Banana, pineapple, apple & papaya
  • JiveALime - Pineapple & lime juice
  • MangOJ - Mango & orange juice
  • Pink Pineapple - Pineapple & guava
  • Purple Funk - Banana & acai
Funky Monkey Bananamon is made with organic bananas & cinnamon
Each 1 ounce bag holds 3 servings of fruit and is perfect to serve as a snack at home or to pop into a brown bag lunch. All flavors are also 100% fat free and are suitable for a wide range of special diets including Kosher - Parve, Vegan, Raw Food, Gluten Free, and Peanut & Tree Nut Free. They also do not contain any Genetically Modified Organisms GMOs and are verified by the Non GMO Project.


Funky Monkey JiveALime product close-up
Funky Monkey Snacks are widely available in-store and may be purchased by the bag at places like Target, Whole Foods, Safeway, Ralphs and many other supermarkets and big box retailers. You can also buy the full line of products online from Amazon in 12 packs for $26.58.

With all this talk of something really delicious that is also a healthy food that kids and adults alike will enjoy, you'll be glad to know I have some more good news. Funky Monkey Snacks is providing one lucky MommyBlogExpert reader with the chance to win a seven bag sampler, one full size bag of each flavor they make.
