Funky Monkey Snacks Review



Healthy and snack usually don’t go in the same sentence for kids or even adults for that matter. One exception may be fruits, both fresh and dried. Most infants show a preference to fruits when they start solid foods for their sweetness and fruit is a healthy essential in any diet. Why not continue healthy choices like fruit for snacks on the go as your little ones get older? Funky Monkey snacks are a great choice for fruit on the go or for snack time as they are dried. 


Our family loves fruit, but they are not always the easiest to take on the go. Funky Monkey snacks are perfect, because they are dried, leaving sticky messes behind. They come in many flavor options and take advantage of fruit’s natural sweetness to make the perfect treat. My husband didn’t like them, my daughter didn’t love them, but I liked them. The bottom line is that we get so used to super sweet treats filled with sugar, high fructose corn syrup and dozens of ingredients I cannot even pronounce that these treats may not taste as sweet as what we’re used to at first. 



Funky Monkey Snacks are available in four varieties, each made with 100% real fruit and NO added sugar, preservatives, colors or flavors.  And they’re fun to eat!  Varieties include:

·         Bananamon® (freeze-dried banana and cinnamon),
·         Carnaval Mix (freeze-dried banana, pineapple, apple, papaya and raisins),
·         Jivealime® (freeze-dried pineapple and lime juice), and
·         Purple Funk® (freeze-dried banana and açai – pronounced ah-sigh-EE

Funky Monkey Snacks are also filled with nutritional goodness.  For example, açai, a berry from the Brazilian rainforest, is considered to be one of nature’s true superfoods and is loaded with antioxidants, amino acids, essential omegas, fibers and protein. 

Funky Monkey Snacks are available at Whole Foods Market, Winn-Dixie, HyVee and other grocery stores, as well as through Amazon.com.  To learn more about Funky Monkey Snacks, visit www.FunkyMonkeySnacks.com.
