OOOH OOOH AHHH AHHH!! That was the sounds throughout my kitchen when we opened our bags of Funky Monkey Snacks! My family was so anxious to try these mainly because of the monkey on the package and because both of my kids are fruit junkies and would eat fruit all day if we would allow them. We opened all 6 packs at one time and passed them around one at a time where everyone took one piece. The flavors we were able to review were:
Some of them were a hit or miss with the kids but surprisingly the hits were different with each kid as were the misses! My 4 year old loved the Pink Pineapple, Jive A Lime, and the Carnaval Mix. She was tolerant of the Applemon but wouldn't even try the Bananamom (which didn't surprise me she HATES bananas!) and was not a fan of mango. My almost 7 year old loved and tried to steal away from the rest of us the Bananamon and the Jive a Lime. She kept coming back for more of the Pink Pineapple as well. She did not like the Mango OJ, Carnaval Mix, or the Applemon. She does not like cinnamon but didn't mind it with the banana one.
My husband was a huge fan of the Jive A Lime and the Mango OJ. Overall he loved all of them as he is also loves dried fruits. He even made recommendation that Funky Monkey needs to come out with a Strawberry Cranberry snack for the more sophisticated Pallets. I loved the Jive A Lime, Pink Pineapple, and the Applemon myself!
As many of you know, if you follow my blog and giveaways, that I really do try to give my children organic food as much as possible. Anytime, that I can replace something that they already eat with something organic and GMO FREE helps me feel better as a parent so having something as practical as Funky Monkey Snacks is refreshing! The best thing about Funky Monkey is that they "give you everything you need and nothing you don't" (I love that saying!!). Each bag is one whole serving of fruit for your kiddos! There is no added sugars, preservatives, or harmful chemicals so your kids are not eating pesticides like they could be with other freeze dried or dehydrated foods. The saying you are what you eat is just as evident today as it has ever been!
If you are interested in purchasing Funky Monkey Snacks they are available for purchase on their website, amazon, or other local retailers for around $1.00 a bag and $2.00 for the 1 oz bags (which contains 3 servings of fruit!).
