Funky Monkey: A review and a giveaway~

Contest is now closed~Congratulations to sassy2 who won the varitey pack from Funky Monkey! Please contact me asap to claim your prize! :)
Funky Monkey is a nutritious, and healthy snack for all ages! Funky Monkey freeze-dries fruit using a proprietary process, removing nearly all of the water while locking in the smell, taste and nutrients of fresh fruit.
Other freeze-dried fruits loose a lot of the nutrients and vitamins in the freeze drying process.

Funky Monkey snacks are completely natural with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. There is no added sugars, either. Just 100% fruit crunch with 3 servings per bag! That is almost as much as the USDA recommendation of 4 servings per day for older children. What an easy way, and good tasting way, to have your kids get their fruits in.
They are gluten-free, wheat-free and dairy-free. Which is a bonus for all the food allergies out there. They come in four delicious flavors: Bananamon (banana and cinnamon - which I love the taste), Carnaval Mix (banana, pineapple, apple, papaya and raisins), Jivealime (pineapple and lime juice) and Purple Funk (banana and acai berries). I am not a big dried fruit fan, but these snacks taste good.
Want to win the variety pack to try for yourself? Funky Monkey is offering one of my readers the 4-pack variety. Just leave a comment about which flavor sounds the best to you. This contest is open to all readers with a US mailing address. Click here to see how you can earn extra credits to win. Contest will end on August 11th, at 7:00 PM CST.
