FunnyFace Cranberries Review

I am always looking for a way to keep my children healthy. As a parent, I know that it is hard to keep the junk food away and the healthy food around.

I recently had an opportunity to try FunnyFace Cranberries.I know that cranberries are supposed to be healthy and they are not loaded with sugar like candy.

The first bag that we opened was called Goofy Grape. When I first opened the bag my mouth started to water. The smell of the cranberries with a hint of grape smelled so good. The cranberries inside were soft and slightly moist. I already know how picky my family can be so I made sure to just grab a few out of the bag to hand to the kids. Believe it or not, my kids loved them. They were a huge success!

Okay so there was a small little part that I left out. The part about how I got my children to sit down and even attempt to eat them. When I received the FunnyFace Cranberries I also received a few balloons and a FunnyFace Beach ball. I also went the the FunnyFace website and printed out some of their coloring pages to get my kids to sit around the table. A little bribery goes a long way in my house. 

The second bag that I received was Rootin' Tootin' Raspberry. I opened this bag for breakfast. The first day I added a handful of the cranberries to a batch of oatmeal to add some fruit and a little flavor. The second day, I added the cranberries to bowls of Cheerios. The kids picked out the cereal and left the some of the cranberries in the bowls. But I decided the sank to the bottom and got lost. I certainly did not have any complaints. The oatmeal was a definite winner and not just with the kids. My husband said that he really enjoyed the flavor of the berries in his oatmeal too. 

The final decision: FunnyFace cranberries are slightly different than what I am used to finding in a store. They are moist and not  completely dried out. That makes them easier to add to foods with out cooking them or soaking them in advance. The added hint of flavor is also a nice touch. It kept my children from getting bored with them.These really were a big hit in my house. I will be searching for the other flavors now to see if I can create more healthy snacks for my children.

Disclosure: I received the product described above free of charge. All opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way. Your opinions may vary from my own.
