Healthy new fruit snack swings into local markets

Residents in New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles areas have gone bananas for the newest, healthy treat to hit the market: Funky Monkey Snacks. The popular snack made of freeze-dried fruit arrived in style this summer via brightly-colored Funky Monkey Mobiles beginning May 13.

The “Funky See, Funky Do” tour took place from mid-May through the end of September, making dozens of scheduled appearances in each city, including stops at well-attended festivals, events and attractions. In addition to 700,000 free samples, the mobile tour team also handed out temporary tattoos, magnets and other fun giveaways. The energetic Tour Team also lead rounds of Funky See, Funky Do competitions, a game similar to the classic pastime for children, Simon Says.

“As consumer demand for tasty, nutritious and convenient snacks grows, so does the desire for a product like ours,” said Matt Herzog, president of Funky Monkey Snacks. “We’re thrilled to hand-deliver our snacks so people can personally experience Funky Monkey. And we’re adding our signature fun to the mix with games and prizes because we want to demonstrate that smart snacking can and should be part of an active and healthy lifestyle.”
