Funky Monkey Fruit Snacks are freeze dried fruit - and nothing but fruit. This means they are gluten free, wheat free and of course, dairy free, with no additives or preservatives. I got a pack of the Carnival Mix which contains freeze-dried banana, pineapple, apple, papaya and raisins.
I poured out a handful and it was so delicious. Freeze dried fruits are not as crispy as the other stuff, so the texture may seem a little different from what you're used to - still crunchy though and the taste of the fruit was obvious, especially the papaya and banana. The true test was giving some to my little cousin who is a bit picky with her food, but she was also a fan. We agreed that out favorite bits where the papaya and pineapple. After that test I decided to liven up some plain yogurt with some and the added texture really made a difference.
One 29 gram (1 ounce) package of Funky Monkey Carnival Mix Fruit Snacks is a serving, and it contains 110 calories, no fat, 1 gram of protein and 26 grams of total carbohydrates which includes 21 grams of sugars, 3 grams of fiber (9% of the RDA) and 34% of the daily value of vitamin C.
Freeze drying is actually one the least destructive processing method to nutrients but it's also more expensive. One bag cost about $2.00 and it's also available online at Amazon.com ($20.40 for 12 packs).
Instead of eating this by itself, I prefer to use it more of an accent, to add to yogurt and even salads. That way I get a few more servings out of it.
