Funky Monkey Snacks Review/Giveaway



Funky Monkey Snacks are freeze dried fruit - all natural, with no added sugar, preservatives, colors or flavors. They are gluten-free, wheat-free and dairy-free and mostly organic. There is three servings of fruit in every bag! I was given four bags in four different flavors: Bananamon (banana and cinnamon), Carnaval Mix (banana, pineapple, apple, papaya and raisins), Jivealime (pineapple and lime juice) and Purple Funk (banana and acai berries), in exchange for my honest review.


Of course my little assitant, Mr. Chase face, helped with the sampling process. My husband, Grant, even got in on this review. We all agreed that the best tasting flavor was the Carnival Mix. It is a mix of banana, pineapplie, apple, papaya and raisins. We loved! It was sweet and crunchy and made a great substitute for trail mix.

Next on our list of favorites was a tie between the Bananamon and the Jivealime. I thought that the Jivealime should should be the second best flavor. I love dried pineapple. It's sweet with a chewy center. I've used dried pinapple in place of candy many times when I was craving something sweet. Grant went with the Bananamon as his second choice because he loved the cinnamony flavor. This surprised me because he doesn't really like bananas. Chase was undecided between the two because he liked them both.


Our least favorite flavor was a unanimous decision, Purple Funk. I did not like it at all and Grant said it was just okay. It was hard to convince Chase to try it but he finally did and had to spit it out. I think it was hard for him to get over the look of the little banana chips with all the acai berries covering the top of them. It looked almost like someone burnt the tops of all of the chips. The flavor was not bad, just different from any other dried fruit that I've ever tried. We eat a lot of dried fruit for a healthy snack but I don't think the acai flavor is one that I could get use to.

I agree with your choices, the carnival mix sounds fab. I also love love love pineapple when it's dried. I dry my own in the dehydrator I have, and that's even better! I'd also pick the Jivealime as my second, I think. Definitely sounds like the Purple Funk would be nasty! I've tried lots of acai flavored items, and just don't like the taste of it.
