Healthy Snacks While Traveling & #Giveaway

Whenever we take road trips to visit family, I always pack lots of snacks and drinks from home. I prefer healthy snacks and usually have lots of sliced fruits and bagels and sandwiches ready for the road. It works out great, saves up money and we get to eat what might have gone bad if left at home.

Finding new snacks that are healthy is always a great thing.

The newest snack in our home is the Funky Monkey - Fruit that crunches!
The kids love them! But they prefer to dip them in caramel sauce! That sauce on everything deal, is something newly introduced in our family :)

It is actually fruit that are like chips. It doesn't smell any way except baked. I find it very interesting. For instance when you are eating the applemon, it's actually apple wedges that are crunchy!! I love it!

Founded in 2006 with the mission of nourishing healthy lifestyles by providing delicious, nutritious, convenient, quality snacks, Funky Monkey Snacks are simply real fruit snacks, made using a proprietary freeze-drying process that creates Fruit That Crunches, while retaining nearly all of fruit's natural goodness.

Funky Monkey Snacks' larger one-ounce bags contain three of the four daily recommended servings of fruit. Both the one-ounce and 0.42-ounce sizes are available in the following flavors:
  • Applemon (Freeze-Dried Apple and Organic Cinnamon)
  • Bananamon (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana and Organic Cinnamon)
  • Carnaval Mix (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana, Pineapple, Apple and Papaya)
  • JiveALime (Freeze-Dried Pineapple and Lime Juice)
  • MangOJ (Freeze-Dried Mango and Orange Juice)
  • Pink Pineapple (Freeze-Dried Pineapple and Guava)
  • Purple Funk (Freeze-Dried Organic Banana and Organic Acai - pronounced ah-sigh-EE)
Funky Monkey Snacks are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, peanut and tree nut free, and contain no added sugars, colors, flavors or preservatives.

They are Non-GMO Project verified, vegan, raw and certified Kosher. They are produced in Brazil, near where the fruit is grown to ensure that all of the premium-quality ingredients are harvested and freeze-dried at the peak of freshness.

Different from other freeze-dried fruits on the market which can have a powdery and Styrofoam-like texture, Funky Monkey's proprietary method freeze drying creates a snack that has tthe crunchy appleal of more traditional snack foods, with three servings of fruit in every ounce. Full slices and pieces of fruit are used, not small dices typically found in other types of fruit-based snacks.

Funky Monkey's freeze-drying methode also uses less energy than other processes by utilizing thermodynamics and steam from a cashew shell-powered boiler. Further supporting its mission to be environmentally respectful, Funky Monkey only uses organic bananas, pineapples, cinnamon, acai and lime juice, eliminating the use of chemicals.

Also, all fruit waste (peels, cores, etc.) is re-used as fertilizer or animal feed, as  opposed to taking up space in a landfill.

The privately-held company is led by an experienced management team with Matt Herzog as it's president. Funky Monkey Snacks are sold nationwide at major retailers and online at For more information, visit, Twitter, or Facebook.
