First the FACTS from Funky Monkey website:

• We use full slices and pieces (not dices) of delicious, fresh fruit
• Funky Monkey is made in Brazil (not China!) using tropical fruits at the peak of freshness

• One of our 7 flavors, Purple Funk, also includes açai, a berry from the Amazon that is viewed as the newest super food
Interested? I was when I heard about a freeze-dried, crunchy fruit! I was sent a sampler pack. The kids and I sat down and went from one bag to another "taste-testing". It was a little weird to "crunch" a banana that had a hint of a cinnamon flavor :0...but it was tasty...in fact, I 'd say it was my favorite. The kids chose Carnaval Mix as their favorite.
Funky Monkey's website is fun! They have a page called Looney Lab where you can design your own flavor or an activity page to play a game! So after you're done munching, or even while you are munching, head on over to the web page for some fun!
I think you all should give this snack a try. It's easy to grab on the run and healthy too!
