Funky Monkey Snacks announces the introduction of fruit that crunches! Funky Monkey Snacks are all natural with no added sugar, preservatives, colors or flavors. In addition, they are gluten free, wheat - free, dairy - free and are certified kosher parve.
The four flavors are:
Bananamon (banana and cinnamon)
Carnival mix (banana, pineapple, apple, papaya and raisins)
Jivealime (pineapple and lime juice) and
Purple Funk (banana and acai - pronounced ah-sigh-EE)
Acai, a berry from the Brazilian rain forest, is considered to be one of nature's true super foods and is loaded with antioxidants, amino acids, essential omegas, fibers and protein.
These snacks are so good! My personal favorite was the "Carnival Mix," I loved the pineapples in there. They were so good. My kids seemed to favor the "Purple Funk," those snacks were gone in about 20 minutes! They loved them a lot. I felt good giving them the Funky Monkey Snacks because they are not covered in preservatives. They are in fact freeze dried in a process that uses whole slices and large pieces of fruit. This process in any other snack available in the U.S. and it removes approximately 97% of the moisture content of the fruit, providing a crisp, crunchy texture. In contrast, most freeze dried fruit in the U.S. uses dices or small pieces of fruit and a different process, resulting in a chewier, rubbery texture and less flavor.
