Funky Monkey Snacks Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey everyone! So my next review and giveaway is for Funky Monkey Snacks. Funky Monkey Snacks are freeze-dried fruit snacks. I know the word "freeze-dried" doesn't sound too appetizing, but believe me these snacks are so delicious! And addictive!



Funky Monkey's Flavors:
Applemon
Bananamon
Carnaval Mix
JiveALime
MangOJ
Pink Pineapple
Purple Funk


Each bag has 1 serving of fruit, it's 100% real fruit, and 100% fat free. They're also gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, peanut and tree nut free, and contain no added sugars, colors, flavors or preservatives and they're kosher too! They're all between 35 and 45 calories per bag too, which is awesome. Funky Monkey's freeze-drying method also uses less energy than other processes by utilizing thermodynamics and steam from a cashew shell-powered boiler.

Now I know everyone is skeptical with healthy snacks because of course they never taste as good as the unhealthy, super sugary snacks. But that isn't the case with Funky Monkey Snacks. Specifically because that's how they felt too, and that is why they created their awesome snacks. Being that they're 100% fruit they don't need any added sugars. Plus they're not your average fruit snack, applemon isn't just apple flavored fruit snacks because they combine the most amazing flavors such as: apple and cinnamon, pineapple and lime, banana and acai, and more! Delicious combos with a crunch, like yummy fruit chips...only better!

In fact, most of the combinations are, it was very difficult picking a favorite, so instead I will just tell you the one (yup, just one) I didn't like. I didn't like the MangOJ mainly because I'm not a big Mango fan and it left a weird taste in my mouth. I loved the rest because I am a huge fan of bananas and pineapples which I feel both don't get much credit in the fruit world. And Applemon well, whoever thought of the idea of combining apples and cinnamon back in the day was a genius because you can never go wrong with that flavor, so that was an obvious deliciousness.

One problem is how addicting these babies are, yeah they're only like 45 calories per bag but...sometimes I had two bags just because one wasn't enough, haha. I had to try the next flavor, mainly for curiosity sake because if this one had to be this delicious then so did the next one and so on, haha.

But you guys definitely have to try them, especially if you have kids and want them to eat healthier snacks or if you yourself have a sweet tooth but want to start eating healthier snacks (ie: me, haha). You definitely won't be disappointed!
