Funky Monkey Snacks Review and Giveaway

I really like fruit, and I'm not just saying that. I eat fruit at least 2 or 3 times a week, not only because you're supposed to, but I like it. I don't normally drink special fruit smoothies, or eat fruit snacks, but I eat the real thing.


Funky Monkey Snacks are freeze-dried 100% fruit without any added sugars that contain almost all of the nutrients found in fresh fruit!

Funky Monkey Snacks come in 7 different flavors:

•Applemon – freeze-dried apple & organic cinnamon
•Bananamon – freeze-dried organic banana & organic cinnamon (100% organic)
•Carnaval Mix – freeze-dried organic banana, organic pineapple, apple & papaya (70% organic)
•JiveALime – freeze-dried organic pineapple & lime juice (100% organic)
•MangOJ – freeze-dried mango & orange juice
•Pink Pineapple – freeze-dried organic pineapple & guava (95% organic)
•Purple Funk – freeze-dried organic banana & organic acai (100% organic)

I was sent one of each flavor to try!
My favorite was the applemon and the bananamon. I like the simple flavors, why mess with a good thing right? The fruit was so delicious! The bag held a decent amount of fruit and the pieces were large. I've had fruit snacks before where the fruit was very dry, very chewy, and virtually non-edible. This is not the case! This is a satisfying, healthy snack. The 1 oz. packages of Funky Monkey contain 3 servings of fruit, the .42 oz. packages contain 1 serving of fruit. With Funky Monkey, you won't have to worry about the fruit rotting before you have the chance to eat it!

Some key points about Funky Monkey
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.

  62. I, too, am a fan of fresh fruit. Although I eat it a bit more often. At least once or twice a day. I also like dried fruit and fruit juice. I've never tried freeze dried fruit, but I would love to. Thanks.
