Funky Monkey Snacks Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to Funky Monkey Snacks, we recently had the chance to review some pretty tasty freeze dried fruit:)
About Funky Monkey Snacks:
"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 Styrofoam like 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-based snacks.
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 Papaya)
-JiveALime (Freeze-Dried Organic Pineapple and Organic Lime Juice)
-MangOJ (Freeze-Dried Mango and Orange Juice)
-Pink Pineapple (Freeze-Dried Organic Pineapple and Guava)
-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."


What we thought: The kiddos LOVED these snacks! They came in a variety of flavors perfect for young and old tastes alike:) Funky Monkey knew what they were doing when they did the flavor parings:) These snacks were crunchy and delicious...we absolutely devoured them! The packages are definitely single serving size though. Each time we snacked on them we ate two packages and the kiddos both got a handful of each flavor...they probably could have eaten more, but that is probably because they were so tasty and so much fun to eat. I liked that you could actually tell what kind of fruit you were eating and they were great on-the-go.
