With a name like Funky Money you know that the product has to be fantastic! What is Funky Monkey? It is fruit that crunches. More precisely, freeze-dried fruit. Funky Monkey is fat free, gluten free, has no sugar added, vegan, 100% organic, 100% fruit and all natural. It is also made in Brazil using the tropical fruits at the peak of their freshness.
There are 7 yummy flavors:
*Applemon: freeze-dried apple and organic cinnamon
*Bananamon: freeze-dried organic banana and organic cinnamon
*Carnaval Mix: freeze-dried organic banana, organic pineapple, apple and papaya
*JiveALime: freeze-dried organic pineapple and lime juice
*MangoOJ: freeze-dried mango and orange juice
*Pink Pineapple: freeze-dried organic pineapple and guava
*Purple Funk: freeze-dried organic banana and organic acai
First of all, let me tell you that the packaging combined with the name is very appealing. My Husband who rarely eats fruit and often only if he is hungry and I hand it to him was excited to try these. He came up to me and said "What do you have?" and proceeded to steal a bag of the Funky Monkey. I had to hunt him down to try a piece so I could review it! So, these treats are a great way to get your kids and umm.. Husbands to eat more healthy food.
Funky Monkey is super good! It is not like those hard, gross dried banana chips that you buy at the supermarket. Funky Monkey's fruit is light, airy and crunchy. After you try these, you will definitely have a new favorite way to eat fruit..no chopping or washing required. Did I mention that there is a full serving of fruit in each bag?
My favorite flavors were the Carnaval Mix, Applemon and Purple Funk. I loved the Carnaval Mix because I like variety. These four fruits went really well together and were delicious individually, or in a hand full. The Applemon has apples and cinnamon: two of my favorite flavors. I was most excited for the Purple Funk because I love the taste and the benefits of Acai. The Acai is actually ground into a powder and the banana is mixed in it so that it sticks. It does make the bananas look a little funny, but the taste is fantastic. I really liked all of the flavors. I did think the lime in the JiveALime and the orange juice in the MangoOJ were a little strong. For these, I could only eat a few pieces at a time. I also wish that Funky Monkey had more Apple flavors. Apples are delicious freeze-dried!
One lucky reader will win a bag of each flavor (7 bags!)
