Funky Monkey Snacks Review & Giveaway

Every kid likes snacks and if your kids are like mine, they are nagging you constantly about what they can have to eat (I seriously don’t know what I’m going to do when I have 3 teenage boys in the house to feed). I am very big on not feeding them junk, so I’m always looking for healthy snack alternatives. That’s how I discovered a company called Funky Monkey.

Funky Monkey snacks are freeze-dried fruit of all different kinds. They have no added sugar and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. They are 100% natural and are all Kosher and gluten-free. Not only that, but each bag of Funky Monkey snacks contains 3 servings of fruit! Now, that is awesome.

I was sent each of their 7 flavors to review. The flavors are Bananamon (bananas and cinnamon), Carnival Mix (bananas, apples, papaya and pineapple), Jivealime (lime and pineapple), Purple Funk (banana and acai), Applemon (apples and cinnamon), MangOJ (mango with orange juice) and Pink Pineapple (pineapple with guava).

Now, I must admit, even though my kids love fruit, I wasn’t sure how they would feel about freeze-dried fruit. They all decided on the Applemon to be the first that they tried and taadaaaaa, they all liked it! Once they were done with that bag, they wanted to open another one but I made them wait until the next day. We have since eaten all of them and everyone liked every single flavor. Who would’ve guessed?!

I also tasted each kind and the only one I wasn’t totally sold on was the Purple Funk that had the bananas and acai, but that was just my preference. I have to tell you though, the pineapple is downright awesome! Seriously, it was so dang good!

I was very happy with everything about these snacks and would be happy to buy them to give to my kids on a regular basis.

The nice people over at Funky Monkey would like to give one of my readers a Sampler Pack (1 bag of each of their 7 flavors) of their own! See below for how you can gain entries to win!

  1. My kids have never had fruit snacks, so they would look at the fun packaging and think it was awesome.

    (This looks like a great giveaway! How did you learn about LLL?)


  2. Visited their site:

    The kids are really into foods that have “good guys” (nutrients, you know, good-for-you type foods) that actually taste good! So I bet this would be a hit!!
