I always try to give my 3 munchkins the best I can; as long as the price is right. My favorite is organic and 100% natural foods. They just make me feel a little better when my Toddler or even my Tween and Teen snack on them.
I came across a wonderful company called Funky Monkey. Have you heard of them? When I heard the name I had to smile… I’m not sure if I would have grabbed a bag of Funky Monkey if I would have seen it in store. It’s an unusual name and not well know just yet. I always grab the more familiar products, I’m sure most of us do. Well, next time you are out and about you defiantly should give Funky Monkey a second look.
We got a few sample bags in the mail to test and BOY.. they are AMAZING!!!! I cannot believe how wonderful in taste they are and I would have passed them by just because I don’t know what they are and who they are. We have a saying back at home in Germany, and coincidence it fits well with this company " What the monkey don’t know, the monkey don’t touch"….. and so true. We tend to always grab the more familiar products. So, like I mentioned before next time you are out and see the Funky Monkeys, grab a bag and taste them.
I opened the 1oz tropical Fruit bag, just to try and see how we like them, needless to say within minutes we had a second bag open and I even snug a bag to the office; they are soo yummy. The fruit tastes fresh sweet and you have the deep, intense fruit taste that you are used to from fresh ripe fruit. The Pineapple was out of this world… and then the wonderful taste paired with a crunch is soo awesome. Your taste buds will go wild and won’t know what hit them. When I saw the Bananas ( check out the pic’) they at the first look, looked weird and I was expecting blaa tasteless "chips" like you usually get at the grocery store… I was in the 2nd bag of bananas in no time.. the bananas are by far the BEST and my favorite. The intense banana taste is in every piece. I shared some samples with the girls at the office and all were raving about how wonderful and sweet yet healthy this is.
Oh did I tell you how healthy this is?? Yup.. it’s good, it’s 100% natural, Organic and HEALTHY!!! And super yummy…. These are awesome for a snack, mixed in with your toddlers breakfast, on the go, in the diaper bag, on car rides or just anytime you need a pick me up.

Here is some info from the Company about this Product:
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 freshness.
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 snacks.
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. Funky Monkey Snacks’ larger one-ounce bags contain three of the four daily recommended servings of fruit.
