Review By Summer:
Funky monkey! My sons and I make up funny names for each other or body parts or things we see around the house … you know just the silly games that come up with a 4 and 2 YO. Now my sons ask for Funky Monkey and I know they mean fruit snacks. Not just fruit snacks, but real snacks made out of real fruit! You can see how natural Funky Monkey is – funny name without added funniness in the bag.
Funky Money’s fruit is dehydrated and offers a crunch when snacking, but it’s only fruit — no tree nuts and peanut free, just 100% raw real fruit with no added sugar. These Funky Monkey snack are great for preschool snacks, school lunches, and would make a great Halloween substitute instead of candy!
As a DINK [Double Income No Kids] we bought full sized candy bars to give kids, then we had children and gave fun-sized candy bars and now that I have two candy eating children I find ways to change up the normal Halloween sugar rush. Offering Funky Monkey will be welcomed by the children knocking on your door – the packages are colorful, have a monkey picture on them, and best of all they taste great – 100% fruit and 100% appealing!
You can score Funky Money snacks on their website which sells through Amazon (including their variety pack or pick your favorite fruits) each item includes 12-packages for fruit snacks just be aware they sell both 1 and ½ ounce packages. You can also find Funky Monkey in a store near you such as Whole Foods and Safeway. You can keep in touch with Funky Monkey through their newsletter, Facebook, and Twitter @FunkyMonkeySnck. And FYI: if you’re a parent looking for some new projects to do with your child, then Funky Monkey also has an activities page with coloring, dot-to-dot, maze, and word search pages.
Mom Start’s Funky Monkey Real Fruit Snacks Rating: A+
My challenge to you this Halloween season is to give a healthy alternative to the ghouls at your door and give them a real treat.
Disclaimer: Funky Monkey gave us 4 different packets to sample, however the views in this review are my own.
