Funky Monkey Snacks Review & Giveaway: Gluten free goodness!

I  recently received a box of 7 flavors of Funky Monkey Snacks to sample  and review.  The folks at Funky Monkey Snacks have also generously  allowed me to run a giveaway for Making Ends Meet so that one reader has will win their own sampler pack.  

Funky Monkey Snacks Taste:
Funky  Monkey Snacks are a dried fruit snack that crunches!  This was a little  weird at first bite, but as I devoured the first bag of Applemon, I was  not put off anymore and really enjoyed the flavor.  There are a total  of 7 flavors of Funky Monkey Snacks.  Here is the list, ranked my  favorite to my least fave: 

Carnaval Mix
Pink  Pineapple
Purple Funk 

By far, Applemon was  my most favorite and I enjoyed the Carnaval Mix and Pink Pineapple  varieties very much because the pineapple was just yummy.  I’m not a  huge fan of dried bananas and much prefer their taste right off the  bunch.  Still, they were definitely an interesting and great tasting gluten free option for me.  Kids will love the crunch of these fruit snacks and you can feel good that these fruit snacks are a fun way to get your kids to eat fruit.

Funky Monkey Snacks:  Nutrition

Funky Monkey Snacks are a healthy and fun lunch snack because the way they are freeze dried ensures that the fruits' nutrition mainly stays intact!  You aren't eating empty calories either.  For instance, the Pink Pineapple flavor contains 1 serving of fruit in the pouch and 40% of the daily value of Vitamin C at only 45 calories per serving.  Nutritional values and daily servings of fruit vary by flavor, so be sure to check out all of their flavors at FunkyMonkeySnacks.com.

Buy Funky Monkey Snacks at your favorite retailers
You  can purchase Funky Monkey Snacks at a variety of retail stores:   Amazon, Target, Safeway, Kroger, Weis, Albertsons and more.  The Funky  Monkey Snacks site has a list of retailers where you can buy their  product.  I love Amazon - you don’t even have to leave your house to  order!
