I tried these first as part of a sampler of Funky Monkey freeze dried fruit snacks and then purchased the single flavor set. They are similar to the Just Tomatoes brand fruit snack, Just Strawberries and Bananas, so if you like those, you will enjoy these.

Funky Monkey snacks are all natural, with no sugar or oils or fats added. Just the natural sweetness of the bananas and of course, cinnamon. Each package is 110 calories, so it makes for a good portion controlled snack for weight watchers and a healthy choice for kids. The other Funky Monkey flavors are just as good. Highly recommended.

I suspect the negative reviews are from people who were expecting this to be more like dried fruit. It is not. It's freeze dried, which is not the same thing.

Let me start by saying that from way back in my teens, I was a huge fan of Seneca Apple Chips, and also of banana chips. I loved the taste and the texture, but eventually had to back off from both of them because they are deep-fried, and that, to me, doesn't make a great option for a healthy snack. Then, a few years ago, I saw products by Crispy Green on my supermarket shelf, and decided to give them a try. I tried the Crispy Pineapple, Crispy Apples, Crispy Apricots, and couldn't eat any of them. The freeze-dry process left them with a chalky texture that would make my skin crawl when I chewed them. (I have the chills right now, even just writing about that experience.)

Then, in August of this year, a friend of mine gave me a bag of Funky Monkey to try. They were so delicious and not at all chalky, I didn't even think that they were freeze-dried! They are so light and airy. They fizz a little bit and melt on your tongue if you don't chew them right away. They are very pleasant to eat, and taste great. And the freeze-dry process retains most of the nutritional value of the original fruit, making this a great option for adults and kids alike.

These are NOT apple chips, or banana chips, or dried fruit. If you're not accustomed to freeze-dried fruit, the texture may take some getting used to, but Funky Monkey does a far better job of preventing chalkiness than any other freeze dried fruit snack I've tried. And they have fun, exciting flavors! I brought a case of these along on a camping trip, and they were a huge hit! So many 5 star reviews can't all be wrong, right? If you haven't tasted these, at least give them a try.

Trying to change your eating habits is hard. But eating this snack is an easy way to incorporate more fruit and fiber into your diet. Its portability and less-perishable nature make this an easy snack to keep and take around. And it tastes good, too! And it isn't messy. What could be better?

These are awesome and they don't have the usual high sodium (salt) content that many snacks have. Outstanding taste and very healthy. Great product, can't believe this hasn't been available before.

There's not much product in the bag - just over a handfull - so you're paying (if its on sale) $1.70 per serving - its a bit pricy for what you get.

These are so yummy! The whole family enjoys these as a snack. My kids would rather eat Funky Monkey for a snack than fruit snacks. And these are actually fruit, which as a mom I feel great about! I would highly recommend this product.

The purple funk really has a strange chemical smell and tastes like chemicals or something. It's edible but I will not be buying these again.

About six months ago I switched my diet to a completely whole foods, plant based plan. As you can imagine, travel can be a bit challenging but I find products like these are great to carry with you. Yes, they are a bit pricey, but then again, so is traveling. I pack a few of these in my bags and use them in my oatmeal for breakfast and as a quick snack on the go. The size is perfect for a snack and makes a great enhancement to a bowl of oatmeal. And it even includes the cinnamon so I get that flavor as a bonus.
