Funky Monkey Snacks Review and Giveaway! (US ONLY)

I love reviewing food. I especially love reviewing healthy and natural food and snacks that I can feed my children. I came across Funky Monkey Snacks and I knew I had to do a review/giveaway with them! Lucky for me, they agreed! So what exactly are Funky Monkey Snacks? The name sure intrigued me! They are a line of freeze-dried fruit that is 100% natural and 100% real fruit! I love this snack because of the no mess factor. Oh sure, a 3 year old and a 1 year old find a way to make any mess with anything they are given, but the mess they make with these snacks is no where near the mess they would make with fresh, juicy fruit. Don't get me wrong, I do feed my children fruit! Out and about, fruit just isn't a convenient option though! Funky Monkey Snacks makes fruit eating on the go so easy and virtually mess free!

Here are some great facts about this cute company:

- Funky Monkey Snacks have no added colors, flavors, sugars or preservatives
- Their special, proprietary manufacturing process provides a nice, crunchy texture, unlike other freeze-dried items that are kind of flaky.
- They use full slices and pieces of fruit, not dices! This is great for helping my 1 year old hold it!
- Funky Monkey is made in Brazil using Tropical fruits at the peak of freshness! Hello Guava!
- Their products are gluten-free and certified kosher.
- Their Purple Funk flavor contains acai, an awesome superfood from the Amazon!(I currently take an acai supplement and LOVE it!)
- Bananamon, JiveALime, and Purple Funk are 100% organic! Pink Pineapple is 95% organic and Carnival Mix is 70& organic!

For review, I got one of each of their 7 favors! Check them out!

- Applemon - Apple with cinnamon
- Bananamon - Banana with cinnamon
- Pink Pineapple - Pineapple with guava
- JaveALime - Pineapple with lime
- MangOJ - Mango with orange juice
- Carnival Mix - Pineapple, Bananas, Apples, Guava and Mango
- Purple Funk - Banana and acai

They were all DELICIOUS! My kids gobbled them up! I love that there are 3 servings of fruit per bag! They all had a nice crunch and were super flavorful. Even my 1 year old had no problem eating these! Her favorite fruit is bananas and she devoured the bananamon! I personally loved the Purple Funk! I also adore that you can buy these at many stores! I have to admit, I never knew they existed, but now that I do, I cannot wait to purchase them!

Where to buy:

- Super Target
- Whole Foods
- Safeway
- Kroger
- Weis
- Acme
- Akins
- Chamberlins

You can also purchase on the Funky Monkey website as well as Amazon.com and Goodpantry.com. If you want to ask your local sotres to carry them, click here.

I was nothing but thrilled with the quality of the products and their super friendly customer service! I will definitely be purchasing these "treats" as my son calls them, again!
