Looking for a healthy snack that is easy to take on the go? Funky Monkey Snacks Freeze Dried Fruit Snacks is bringing convenience and great taste to snacks that can be served at home or on the go.
Funky Monkey Snacks are whole slices of freeze dried fruit that has not sugar added and is all natural. Have a nut allergy in your family? Funky Monkey Snacks are Peanut/Tree nut free so there is no need to worry. What do I love? I love that every ounce of fruit contains three of our daily fruit servings. Getting our daily servings of fruit is not extremely hard while we are at home because my boys love fruit, it is a bit tougher on the days when we are on the go. We are traveling a lot this summer and I know that neither Coulter or Corbin are receiving adequate nutrition. There is no way I am serving them a mango or orange in the car. Now I don’t have to worry as much about the sticky mess with Funky Monkey’s MangoOJ slices.
Another reason I find that Funky Monkey Freeze Dried Fruit Snacks are beneficial is that I don’t exactly remember to buy a variety of fruit sometimes and therefore they may miss out on the great health benefits of acai or limes. With flavors like Purple Funk (banana with acai) or Jivealime (pineapple with lime) I don’t have to worry as much about how to even pick these fruits. I couldn’t tell you how to pick a guava but when combined with pineapple makes a good flavor combination.
What does Coulter notice about Funky Monkey Snacks vs. the usual brands of freeze dried food that I buy? He notices that they are actually crunchy more like dried fruit, but dissolve easier which makes them nice for Corbin. The crunch seems to make them a tad bit more fun to eat as of course they have some noise packed into them. Funky Monkey uses whole slices of fruit rather than dices which makes for easy gripping for the kiddos and their small fingers.
One thing I look forward to in the future is possibly some fruit flavors mixed with vegetables. A tropical mix “covering” the taste of carrots would be a great help to my family as Coulter takes after his daddy and if the word vegetable is associated in any way it’s a no go… Otherwise I like that the snacks are packaged in smaller bags because it’s recommended to eat the entire bag once it’s opened (1 oz), which is the perfect size for my boys to share at snack time with me snitching a couple of pieces.
Here are some additional Funky Monkey highlights:
