If the Funky Monkey Truck Isn't Coming to Your Town...

We'll bring Funky Monkey to you!

Thanks to my very good friends at Funky Monkey I am giving away a package of all seven Funky Monkey flavors. Applemon (apple and cinnamon), Jivealime (pineapple with lime), Carnaval Mix (banana, pineapple, apple and papaya), Purple Funk (banana with acai), Pink Pineapple, MangOJ (mango and orange juice),  Bananamon (banana and cinnamon). I've tried Applemon and Bananamon and they are yummy and so healthy. There is no added fat or sugar. 

I discovered Funky Monkey while walking in Lower Manhattan two weeks ago. The Funky Monkey truck, which is going all over the country, was stopped there and samples of Bananamon were being given out. I loved the taste -- and it was the perfect snack to carry in my tote bag -- and wrote to the Funky Monkey folks to tell them how much I liked it. I mentioned I had a blog and they were very gracious and supplied me with this terrific giveaway. Today I found the Funky Monkey truck near Lincoln Center and got to try Applemon. I also got to take a photo of the gentleman handing out the samples, who couldn't be nicer. 

I can't promise you that the delivery person will be this cute, but one visitor to Buttercupland will receive the box of yummy Funky Monkey flavors. Just tell me which flavor sounds the best to you. This giveaway closes June 30th and the winner will be announced July 1.

I've been running around for the last few days. Work was hectic on Thursday and Friday and I was away all day yesterday. Up at 5:00 am to catch the 7:07 train to New Haven. Well worth the early start. It was my cousin Tyler's Bar Mitzvah and I got to see all of my first cousin's on my father's side. It was a wonderful day and a joy to spend it with family for a very happy occasion.  This included my California cousins -- and the sweetest seven year old in North America, my cousin Sasha. I know I am biased, but she is a honey bunch. 

The week ahead looks busy with lots of work stuff, but I get to have dinner on Tuesday with my goddaughter. That's a high point in any week. 

Hugs, wishes for Father's Day and for a great week ahead!

I pick Carnaval mix if I win. That seems most interesting, but winners really can't be choosers now can they :)

Sounds like a nice and busy couple of weeks.

I just got in from being gone two weeks and I'm just starting to get my blog legs back on.

I agree with Betty - Carnival Mix sounds really intriguing - although they all sound great!

Sounds like you had a fun-filled family day. Those are the best kind :)

Unbelievably, we have Funky Monkey here way out west. I like freeze dried foods, very tasty. Since I can get it out here I won't enter but leave more chances for those who can't get it where they live!

Marydon said...

No funky monkey in our area ... but that Applemon does the trick for me!

Great giveaway, Lilac.
Huggers, Marydon
