Funky Monkey Review and Giveaway CLOSED

I have to admit, it was the fun name that drew me in to see what Funky Monkey snacks were all about. But it's the great product that will keep me coming back.

Funky Monkey Snacks are a line of freeze-dried fruit that are 100% natural, 100% real fruit, and 100% delicious – with three servings of fruit in each 1oz bag! Our “fruit that crunches” provides the ultimate snack, fusing the great taste, smell, and nutritional goodness of fresh fruit with the crunch and convenience of conventional snacks.

Here are some additional Funky Monkey highlights:
  • Funky Monkey Snacks have no added colors, flavors, sugars, or preservatives
  • Our special, proprietary manufacturing process provides for a crunchier texture vs. conventional freeze-drying techniques
  • We use full slices and pieces (not dices) of delicious, fresh fruit
  • Funky Monkey is made in Brazil using tropical fruits at the peak of freshness
  • Our products are gluten-free and are certified Kosher
  • One of our 7 flavors, Purple Funk, also includes a├žai, a berry from the Amazon that is viewed as the newest superfood
  • Bananamon, JiveALime, and Purple Funk are 100% organic! Pink Pineapple is 95% organic, Carnaval Mix is 70% organic.
With 7 great flavors I can bet there's one for everyone. I liked them all but my fave, as in I could eat the serving bag all by myself was the Applemon! But everyone in my family had a different favorite.

I love the idea of snacks like this to take on the go. With our crazy schedule we are eating on the run alot and to be honest, I don't usually attempt to bring fresh fruits or veggies with us as they end up smooshed or otherwise destroyed before we eat them. After we did some sampling at home when our sample pack arrived it was the boys who pointed out they'd be perfect to take with us as we were heading to a soccer game.
They're a great alternative to other, less nutritious on the go type snacks.










Would you like to win a sample pack of all 7 flavors to try yourself???

  13. Wow - each 1 oz serving is worth 3 servings of fruit! Cool! Mine all love fruit but this would be great for on the go snacks instead of gummies.
