Funky Snacks Review

I don't know about you, but I am always looking for healthy snacks that are easy for my on-the-go lifestyle.  Sometimes I find snacks that are healthy and portable, but then their taste disappoints.  I know I am supposed to eat 2-3 servings of fruit a day, but I do not always have fresh fruit on hand.  What's a girl to do?

Funky Monkey Snacks is a company that has created healthy snacks that actually taste good.  Each pack of fruit contains 3 servings of fruit.  It is "fruit that crunches."  It has been featured on prestigious shows such as the Today show and prominent magazines such as Family Circle and Weight Watchers.  

I was sent a sample pack which contained the following flavors:   Applemon, Bananamon, Carnaval Mix, JiveALime, MangOJ, Pink Pineapple and Purple Funk.  I have had the opportunity to try these before, but it has been a while.  I remember that when I first tried one of the pouches, I was not sure what I thought about these.  The flavor is not sugary or greasy like you might expect from a snack of this kind.  They are all natural, and they are naturally sweet.  Once your taste buds  get used to the natural flavor, you will find that these snacks are addictive.  I found myself taking these in my lunch instead of baked chips or even dessert.  My personal favorite is the JivALime, but all are equally good.  My mom agreed.  They are not her favorite, but they are nice for something different.  

Since I first tried these, I have grown to love these even better.  I have yet to find another crunchy fruit snack that tastes this good and does not leave my fingers the color of the fruit I am eating.  The pouches are easy to point out (Thank you, Beauty Brite, I am glad I read your review because I would not have thought of that!). I don't think I ever struggled to open these.  My daughter refuses to eat them (more for me!) because she does not like dried fruit or anything like that.  Maybe someday.

I found that Funky Monkey snacks were hard to find unless you bought them online.  You can go here and check out where you can buy them.  Though sometimes a little pricier than the unhealthy snacks, I feel they are worth the extra money!
