Funky Monkey Snacks

The kids and I just tried out 3 of the 4 flavors of Funky Monkey freeze dried fruit snacks. The consensus was, "Yum!". We had Bananamom, freeze dried banana chips sprinkled with cinnamon; Purple Funk, freeze dried banana chips sprinkled with acai berry; and Carnaval Mix, a mixture of freeze dried banana chips, pineapple, apple, papaya and raisins. We really liked the pineapple - so much so that everyone dug our every piece they could find before eating anything else! There's also Jivealime, freeze dried pineapple and lime juice - we have got to get our hands on that one!

I love that they travel well - we took a package on a walk and the baby loved sitting in her stroller and munching on banana chips. I loved that there are no artificial ingredients at all and no added sugar. They are gluten-free, wheat-free and dairy-free, as well. Best yet is the fact that each ounce provides 3 servings of fruit!

The website is totally cute! There are nutritional facts, a spot to order online and a wallpaper to download. Think you have a great flavor combo? Check out the website and submit your idea. How about a great recipe using Funky Monkey snacks? There's also a page where you can share that.

We liked these a lot and will be buying them often; I'll just have to hide my package from the kids, though.
