Have you heard of Funky Monkey yet? I love the catchy title, and I love their freeze dried fruit even more. Funky Monkey Freeze Dried Snacks are varied and delicious. They carry several varieties of freeze dried fruit. There are no added preservatives or sweeteners. This is a snack that you won’t feel guilty about giving your kids. They will love it and so will you.
Here is a little more about what Funky Monkey is all about:
Funky Monkey® Snacks Company BackgrounderFounded in 2006 with the mission of nourishing healthy lifestyles by providing delicious, nutritious, convenient, quality snacks, Funky Monkey® Snacks are simply real fruit snacks, made using a proprietary freeze-drying process that creates Fruit That Crunches!® while retaining nearly all of fruit’s natural goodness.
Funky Monkey Snacks’ larger one-ounce bags contain three of the four daily recommended servings of fruit. Both the one-ounce and 0.42-ounce sizes are available in the following flavors: Applemon® (Freeze-Dried Apple and Organic Cinnamon), Bananamon® (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana and Organic Cinnamon), Carnaval Mix™ (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana, Pineapple, Apple and Papaya), JiveALime® (Freeze-Dried Pineapple and Lime Juice), MangOJ® (Freeze-Dried Mango and Orange Juice), Pink Pineapple® (Freeze-Dried Pineapple and Guava),
Purple Funk® (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana and Organic Açai – pronounced ah-sigh-EE).
Funky Monkey Snacks are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, peanut and tree nut free, and
contain no added sugars, colors, flavors or preservatives. They are Non-GMO Project verified,
vegan, raw and certified Kosher. They are produced in Brazil, near where the fruit is grown to
ensure that all of the premium-quality ingredients are harvested and freeze-dried at the peak of
Different from other freeze-dried fruits on the market which can have a powdery and Styrofoam-like texture, Funky Monkey’s proprietary method of freeze drying creates a snack that has the crunchy appeal of more traditional snack foods, with three servings of fruit in every ounce. Full slices and pieces of fruit are used, not small dices typically found in other types of fruit-based
Funky Monkey’s freeze-drying method also uses less energy than other processes by utilizing thermodynamics and steam from a cashew shell-powered boiler. Further supporting its mission to be environmentally respectful, Funky Monkey only uses organic bananas, pineapples,
cinnamon, açai and lime juice, eliminating the use of chemicals. Also, all fruit waste (peels, cores, etc.) is re-used as fertilizer or animal feed, as opposed to taking up space in a landfill.
The privately-held company is led by an experienced management team with Matt Herzog as its president. Funky Monkey Snacks are sold nationwide at major retailers and online at Amazon.com. For more information, visit www.FunkyMonkeySnacks.com, Twitter or Facebook.
We got the chance to try a few different Funky Monkey Snacks. Everything was so good. The freeze dry gives the fruit a nice crunch. I loved the flavors too. They were sweet without being too sweet. This is a snack that I don’t feel guilty about giving my son either. He feels like it is a treat, but he’s getting a serving of fruit.
The Applemon Funky Monkey Fruit was probably my favorite. It is freeze dried apples with a dusting of cinnamon. This is something that I would like to take with me anywhere.
The Funky Monkey Snacks come in a 1 oz serving, which has 3 servings in it, and a 0.42 oz package that is a single serving. I think single serving packs would be perfect to throw in your bag to have whenever you or the kids need a quick, healthy snack on the go. With the variety of flavors, everyone will find something they love.
