Funky Monkey Snacks
I recently received some samples of Funky Monkey Snacks. I have to be honest in saying that they lived up to their title. While some people have posted on their blogs that they like them, I didn’t care for them and found them, well…..a little funky. I love freeze dried fruit, but I didn’t care for the combination of flavors in the Funky Monkey Snacks. I tried to get my kids to eat them. They took a sniff of them and a small taste and didn’t want anymore. I think Funky Monkey Snacks would be better if they stuck to one flavor at a time instead of combining flavors.
What are Funky Monkey Snacks? They are freeze dried fruit snacks made of 100% real fruit and have no sugar added. They are also crunchy. The flavors they have are Bananamon (Banana and Cinnamon), Jivealime (Pineapple and Lime), Purple Funk (Banana and Acai), and Carnaval Mix (all kinds of different flavors).
I do applaud them for setting the goal of giving kids healthier snacks, which would hopefully lower the rate of obese children in the United States. Perhaps I’ll give them another try if they come out with new flavors.
Based on my tastes and personal opinion of Funky Monkey Snacks, I would give them a 2 out of 5 and would increase it by 1/2 point for their efforts in developing healthy snacks.
