They utilize a proprietary freeze drying process on whole slices and large pieces of real fruit that removes 97 percent of the moisture content and provides a crisp, crunchy texture. This process is not used on any other snacks available in the U.S.
Other methods of freeze drying, according to Funky Monkey's management, use a different process on small pieces of fruit, which results in a chewier, rubbery texture with less flavor. The Funky Monkey system preserves the natural wholesomeness of real fruit to provide a healthier and more natural alternative to other dried fruit and fruit snacks.
Funky Monkey comes in a choice of four flavors: "Bananamon," which is a combination of banana and cinnamon; "Carnaval Mix," which combines banana, pineapple, apple, papaya and raisins; "Jivealime," a mixture of pineapple and lime juice, and "Purple Funk," which combines banana with acai, a fruit pronounced ah-sigh-ee.
All come in one ounce bags that are brightly colored and feature the Funky Monkey character. Each bag contains three servings of fruit. The minimum order is 20 cases of 12 bags each, and it can be of assorted flavors. A display unit that holds 48 units of assorted flavors is available. The wholesale price was not finalized by deadline, but the suggested retail price is $1.99 per unit.
