I am always on the lookout for healthy snacks that I can recommend to clients – especially kid-friendly snack foods – so I was delighted when I received a package of crunchy fruit snacks from the folks over at Funky Monkey.
Advertising their product as “the fruit that crunches,” these snack packs contain real fruit – nothing added – that’s been freeze-dried to a crunch! A totally fun concept that parents can pack guilt-free into their little one’s lunch box (or, in my case, in my kid-at-heart husband’s lunch bag).
I packed some of the Funky Monkey snack packs along with me on a recent road trip, where fresh fruit was hard to come by, and they really hit the spot when I had a sweet craving in the afternoons. They have kid-friendly flavors like “Applemon” (freeze-dried apple with cinnamon) or “MangOJ” (mango with orange juice), but also sophisticated, adult-appealing options like “Purple Funk” (freeze-dried banana with acai) and “Jivealime” (pineapple pieces with lime juice).
I will admit that these snacks can be a bit on the sweet side for me, so I decided I liked them best alongside some nuts for a make-shift trail mix.Yum!
