Funky Monkey Snacks Review + Giveaway


Funky Monkey Snacks are a line of freeze-dried fruit that are 100% natural, 100% real fruit, and 100% delicious – with three servings of fruit in each 1oz bag! Here are some fun facts from 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 açai, 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
I received a variety pack of each of the original 5 flavors, plus the 3 newest flavors (by the way, make sure to pay attention to the fun names!) to review. I first thought they would be like the dehydrated fruit that I have had before. No way! Not even close. Funky Monkey fruit is so much better. They have really great, strong flavors, and are really crunchy. Some of the textures (like the bananas) were not what I was expecting at all. It took some getting used to, but for the most part, I really enjoyed the snacks. Here's my rundown:
  • Bananamon- (banana + cinnamon) This was the first flavor I tried. I thought this would be my favorite. The texture of the bananas were almost chewy, as they stuck to your teeth, and I wasn't really expecting that at all, especially since it was crunchy. Very strange, but the flavor was good.
  • MangOJ- *NEW* (mango + orange juice) I don't know if I've ever eaten mango before, but it was good. You could definitely taste the hing of orange juice.
  • Applemon- *NEW* (apple + cinnamon) I liked the cinnamon, but the apples were a little softer than the other fruit.
  • Carnaval Mix- (banana, pineapple, apple, and papaya) My favorite of the bunch. I loved all the different flavors.
  • Pink Pineapple- *NEW* (pineapple + guava) This is my other favorite. I loved the tanginess. The pineapple has the best crunch too.
  • Purple Funk- (banana + acai) Probably my least favorite of the group. I just couldn't get into it.
  • Jivealime- (pineapple + lime juice) Very strong flavor but I still liked it because of the pineapple.

I am so happy to have found Funky Monkey snacks. I am a snacker for sure. It makes it hard to lose weight, because we always have those unhealthy snacks around. I love that I can eat a whole bag of Funky Monkey snacks (although I wouldn't because there are a lot of snacks in one bag!) and only eat 100 calories. Yay!

One of my readers is going to win a variety pack of Funky Monkey Snacks too!!
