First Ever Giveaway Funky Monkey Snacks!!!!

This is my first ever blog giveaway! I got an email this week from Hungry Girl about Funky Monkey Snacks. Jennifer at Funky Monkey was nice enough to send me a sample pack. One lucky entry will also get a sample pack.

We just broke into our first pack, Pink Pineapple. My kids are sitting beside me begging for more. It is so good! The flavor is great! It is by far the best freeze-dried fruit we have ever tried! I am going to try some of the Bananamon in my oatmeal in the morning.

Funky Monkey snacks do not have any added sugar, preservatives, color, or flavoring. I am super pumped about the no added sugar! The kids and I love dried fruits. But it is so hard to find it without a bunch of junk on it. Each pack contains 3 servings of fruit!

There are seven scrumptious flavors...
Applemon (Apple with Cinnamon) Points 1
Bananamon (Banana with Cinnamon) Points 2
Carnival Mix (Banana, Pineapple, Apple, and Papaya) Points 2
Jivealime (Pineapple with Lime) Points 2
MangOJ (Mango with Orange Juice) Points 1
Pink Pineapple (Pineapple with Guava) Points 2
Purple Funk (Banana with Acai) Points 2

For those of you that do Weight Watchers I listed the points value for a whole bag beside the flavors. This is an awesome healthy snack!

To enter the contest please leave a comment telling me:
-Why you should win the sample pack
-Which flavor you would like to try the most
-How you are going to eat it (plain, in some type of recipe, etc)

Contest ends Tuesday, June 15th at noon.

What a great giveaway. I would love to win them, I hardly ever win anything. I would love to try the carnival mix.

Lauren said...

I should win because my son will ADORE these! I can't even pick a favorite... the Carnival mix, I think, but they all look fabulous! We would snack on them plain.

I should win because I will share them with my 8 year old nephew! I would try the Jivealime ones first. I would eat them plain.

Nicky & Jodie said...

I should win because I need some healthy snacks for my kids and I. I think they are all interesting but I probably start with the Purple funk. Eat them plain to start.

Jen said...

Thanks for doing a giveaway. I'd def eat them as-is. I'd love to try the Jivealime.

Toby said...

I love fruit and this is an awesome way to get my little one to eat fruit on the run- that is why I should win. The Bananamon sounds really good... as do the others. We would be eating them plain. Thanks for the giveaway

I would love to try them. I would try the applemon first and I would probably mix it in some yogurt

Jen said...

I would like to try the Bananamon, and I should win because I will try anything once! I think I would try to bake them into a quick bread or just eat them as it!

I love dried fruit. I get it at TJs when I go but there isn't one within an hour of me and I am out now. :( This seems like it has a really great assortment of flavors which is awesome. The Bananamon sounds delish. I love mixing dried fruit into trail mix and I think the cinnamon in these would be perfect to kick it up a notch.

Wow, those sound amazing! I'd love to win to have a healthy snack to take to work. I would eat some plain and mix the rest into a new batch of granola bars for variety. I bet my coworkers would love that...

renaeboiler said...

These look amazing! I'd love to share these with friends! Yummo!

Tiff said...

Those sound so fun. I would add them to my morning oatmeal. I think the Pink Pineapple flavor sounds good.

I have been wanting to try more freeze dried fruit. My husband and I have been doing some hiking and backpacking. We are always looking for healthier treats that don't weigh a lot to take with us. These would be perfect for a snack on a day hike or mixed in with our cereal/dried milk when we backpack overnight. The carnival mix would be my choice but they all sound yummy!

Buttercup said...

I should win because I can't get enough Funky Monkey. I would snack on them at work and I could pretend I am on a tropical island. I'm dreaming of JiveALime, but they all look yummy.

I love dried fruit in my oatmeal!
The Jivealime looks fantastic!

I am always looking for a healthy snack. I eat 2 snacks a day so I run out of options. Plus I love fruit! I would eat them as-is, I want to try JiveaLime the most!

tarenjs said...

I would love to win this because I love dried fruit and have heard great things about this brand! I would love to try the pink pineapple flavor!

laceysmom82 said...

Yum! They sound delicious - I would probably eat them by themselves or maybe add them to some plain yogurt with granola. The Jivealime sounds the best! You should pick me because I've never tried them before and I'd definitely eat them!
