Funky Monkey Snacks Review

All Natural, Freeze-Dried
Funky Monkey™ Snacks Now Certified Organic

100% Real Fruit Meets USDA Natural Organic Program (NOP) Standards

Funky Monkey™ Snacks, makers of Fruit That Crunches!®, today announced that its Bananamon®, Purple Funk® and Jivealime® all natural, freeze-dried fruit have been certified organic according to Natural Organic Program (NOP) standards set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 

To meet NOP mandates, products must be produced, harvested, processed and handled using all-natural methods and substances.  As a general rule, all-natural (non-synthetic) substances are allowed in organic product and all synthetic substances are prohibited.  What’s more, produce must be raised without using most conventional pesticides, petroleum-based fertilizers, or sewage sludge-based fertilizers.

After extensive evaluation by certifying agents, Funky Monkey Snacks’ Bananamon, Purple Funk and Jivealime varieties were approved for the “organic” label, meaning that at least 95 percent of the products’ ingredients are organically produced.  The Company’s fourth variety, Carnaval Mix™, will carry the words “made with organic banana and organic pineapple” on the label.

“The Natural Organic Program certification process is a rigorous examination of every step in a food product’s life, from the field or orchard to the finished product,” said Matt Herzog, president of Funky Monkey Snacks.  “It’s great to be able to officially assure our customers that Funky Monkey Snacks are not only respectful of the environment in every step of production, but also are grown and manufactured using organic methods.”

Funky Monkey Snacks are made with 100% real fruit and contain no added sugar, preservatives, colors or flavors.  Using an original and proprietary freeze-drying process, about 97% of the moisture content of the fruit is removed, producing a crisp, crunchy, go-anywhere snack that contains three of the four daily recommended servings of fruit.

Funky Monkey Snacks are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free and are certified Kosher-Parve.  The snacks are ideal for kids and grownups on-the-go who are looking for a crunchy, delicious, fun and healthful alternative to chips or candy.  To learn more about Funky Monkey Snacks, visit

Almost 17% of American children are considered obese, so although lunches are traditionally stuffed with candy and cookies the snack/side- this year, parents might want to consider a bit healthier alternative:

"Funky Monkey Snacks" are freeze dried fruit - all natural, with no added sugar, preservatives, colors or flavors. They are gluten-free, wheat-free and dairy-free. They come in four delicious flavors: Bananamon (banana and cinnamon - a personal favorite of mine), Carnaval Mix (banana, pineapple, apple, papaya and raisins), Jivealime (pineapple and lime juice) and Purple Funk (banana and acai berries). The bright and colorful packaging appeals to children and the healthy choice makes parents feel better.

Funky Monkey snacks are healthy snacks for kids and parents alike – they are gluten-free, sugar-free and preservative free – nothing but three servings of fruit in each bag. Funky Monkey has just released three new flavors to check out: Applemon, Pink Pineapple and MangOJ. The snacks are perfect for those on the go and are a healthy alternative to chips or candy.

I have tried Funky Monkey snacks a few times so I was happy to review them again. They have 4 original flavors- Bananamon, Carnaval Mix, Purple Funk, and Jivealime. But they just came out with 3 new  flavors! Applemon, Pink Pineapple, and MangOJ. My favorite original flavor is Bananamon, and my fave new flavor is Applemon. I like cinnamon!
I love that Funky Monkety snacks are so good but so healthy. Inside is 100% real fruit, the product is 100% fat free, no sugar added, and Funky Monkey snacks are gluten free. As well as being all natural, vegan, and a raw food item! You can't go wrong with delicious freeze dried fruit snacks. 
The Bottom Line: With so many unhealthy snacks available it feels good to know that Funky Monkey snacks are healthy and yummy too. Kids and parents love 'em!
