Funky Monkey review and giveaway!


It seems that it gets harder and harder to find snacks your children will enjoy, well healthier snacks that is. I was excited when "Funky Monkey Snacks" sent me some free samples to review. You may ask, "What makes these snacks better than most?", the ingredients will show you. "Funky Monkey Snacks" are freeze dried fruit - all natural, with no added sugar, preservatives, colors or flavors. They are gluten-free, wheat-free and dairy-free.

I was sent 3 flavors to sample. My children loved the Bananamon (banana and cinnamon). There really wasn't any flavor they disliked. I like this snack because it is so easy to grab on the go and it is a healthy replacement for chips and candy. For more information on Funky Monkey Snacks, visit their official site at funkymonkeysnacks.com. Here your children can also enjoy searching through Funky Monkey's interactive site.



Where to Buy:
You can find Funky Monkey Snacks online at Amazon.com or efoodpantry.com . You can also find a list of local stores that carry Funky Monkey Snacks located on their site here.

Favorite healthy snack:

Frozen grapes in jello.
To make, wash the grapes and pull off stem. Put a box of sugar-free jello in a baggie and coat the grapes. Freeze and serve.

Tastes sinful, but is good for you.
