Going Ape over Funky Monkey!

I discovered a great new snack at Publix yesterday: Funky Monkey Fruit Snacks.

Funky Monkey Fruit Snacks consists of 100% natural freeze-dried fruit. That’s it – no added sugar, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. It contains no gluten, wheat, dairy, peanut or tree nut, either. It’s organic, kosher and also considered raw as it’s not cooked or heated. There are two things, however, that Funky Money does have: a fab fruity crunch and plenty of flavor!

Publix had four varieties in the .42 oz. package, and I got one of each: Applemon, Bananamon, Pink Pineapple and MangoOJ. There are also three other flavors available, but I didn’t see them at Publix: Carnival Mix, Jive-A-Lime and Purple Funk. I’d like to buy a larger bag, but I’m going to wait to test all of the flavors. So far, I’ve had Bananamon and Pink Pineapple, and they were both delish.

Nutritionally speaking, the .42 oz. package contains 40-50 calories and is equal to one serving of fruit. There is little or no sodium – only that which occurs naturally in the given fruit.  No fat or cholesterol, either.

I found my Funky Monkeys at Publix on the perimeter of the produce section. Funky Monkey’s website lists other retail locations, including Target, Whole Foods, Earth Fare. You can also order them directly from the website, Amazon.com or Drugstore.com.

Funky Monkey Fruit Snacks are a great supplement to a healthy, clean eating lifestyle. They would be especially good as an on-the-go snack and/or a fruity change of pace. I’m planning on stocking a few Funky Monkeys at the office and in the car for those times that I need a quick, healthy snack. I’m also going to add them to my list of must-have travel foods.
