Product Reviews


Click the link to see how our grand daughters reacted to their first ever try of the The Funky Monkey snack products. I agree with them... They are awesome. My absolute favorite are the pineapple ones. Their new Pink Pineapple is just amazing. Jive A Lime is my other favorite... Yummmm

They would work to send  small snack bags in school lunches. Great for snacking in the car because they are not sticky or messy at all. 

I had a hard time finding them at first, so I just bought them from Amazon. Funny story with that. I purchased a case of these, took some out and put away the others. Well my on target MS Brain  did not let me remember where I put it at....4 years later, I accidentally found it.. Some of these, the banana ones had gotten soft. But the pineapple ones were still crisp and edible.. They weren't the best in the world, but they still were good.
 Hey what do you expect?
 It WAS 4  

Now, I have seen them in lots of grocery stores. Winn Dixie was the last place I found them at. But they were in the Produce section. Im not sure that is a good place to put them, but hey I found them..

Every ounce of Funky Monkey Snacks, is packed with 3 full servings of real fruit healthy goodness. No added sugar, no sweeteners, no artificial colors and no preservatives but simply great fruity taste. During the freeze drying process, the nutrients of the organic fruit is retained.

I Wasn't Kidding When I Said We Loved Our Coffee

I was not kidding when I said My Husband and I were coffee fanatics. I just decided for kicks n grins to bring down all the coffee containers out of the cabinet and there were 15 different ones.  From Boca Java, Javatime, Seattle's Best, (We LOVE Seattles Best, reminds us of our one and only Cruise), a few varieties of  Senseo, various Pods to some good ole Cuban Coffee Cafe Noir. 
Of course, you need a variety of  Brewing Systems.  We have a few different coffee making systems. We have the regular drip Pot, The Senseo, The Keurig, a couple of different Espresso Machines, and a little pink Cuban or Italian kind that you cook with on the stove. There are quite a few others out there we want to try. One is a French Press style. I have no idea how they work, but like I said, We are always looking for that perfect cup of coffee.
We are Members of Boca Villa. We use their mail delivery service and have been for quite a while now.  Especially since we are very picky about our coffees. But, pricing has now gone up to around $7.50 a bag, plus shipping.  Now this Coffee is amazing and an extra perk they give their customers, You can choose between two flavor offerings of what they call their Baby Bocas. You never know what they are offering until you log in to your account. This is how we discovered we loved the Bananas Foster flavored coffee. It is so much better than We thought it would be. In fact, have purchased quite a few bags since we first tried it.
I have been wondering about trying some other options though as far as Coffee Services go. The only other one I am familiar with is Gevalia. I may give them a try as well? Do any of you use a Coffee Delivery Service? Please leave me a comment and let me know.  With the quality Coffees We have tried lately, it probably is much cheaper just to cancel all together. I guess that is considered a Perk. Kind of like going to get a Pedicure or Manicure.  These are things you like, but only treat yourself every so often.

I love it when I have caught up on all the "stuff" it is I need to be doing for the day. Rare that seems however, because I am such a grasshopper mind and have so many tabs open. Then I see, I have about 20,000 + Emails. So I better narrow those down a bit. Of course you know what happens next?, Yep, sidetracked again.  There are times I need to just get away from all of the "I NEED TOO'S", and play some games.. What ever type of games you like, they can be found on the Internet.  There are Yahoo Games,  Games on Google and now even in the new Google Plus. Another good one is Wild Tangent Games. Years ago, I was afraid of that because of a Virus name being very similar, but I found , I was completely wrong. There are hundreds of games here for every type you prefer. I prefer the Hidden Object games, followed by Wordgames.  I have Multiple Sclerosis and I think they are great exercise for your brain.  You can play them online for free. But, if you want to download them to your computer so you can play them off-line, then they use what they call Wildcoins. They start you out with a certain amount free. Later you can either earn or purchase more. Honestly though, I have not had to buy any. Have fun and happy Gaming at!!
