Since my son is now a toddler, it is more important than ever to make sure he is getting all his nutrition. He certainly has a mind of his own and lets me know it! At times it is not always easy to ensure he eats all his servings of fruits and vegetables So I’m always on the lookout for tasty snacks are still nutritious. This is exactly why I was excited to learn about Funny Face and their selection of flavored dried cranberries!
Funny Face Dried Cranberries are a low sugar, no fat snack for kids, with the goal to allow your kids to have a little fun with their healthy snacks. The brand officially launched this past fall with four flavors of dried cranberries: Rootin’ Tootin’ Raspberry, Choo Choo Cherry, Freckle Face Strawberry and Goofy Grape.
Funny Face generously sent me a gift pack including two packages of Funny Face Dried Cranberries, a kids t-shirt, mini beach ball, chip clip, grocery tote, stickers, pencils, and more! All the goodies were so much fun, but we are most excited to try the Funny Face cranberries.
Now let me rewind and give you a little back story on the characters associated with each flavor of cranberries. Back in the 1960’s, these Funny Face characters were create by Pillsbury for a line of powdered drinks. Now they have been repurposed for the new Funny Face cranberries! This is why you might pick up on a fun retro vibe with the characters. They are featured not only on the packages, but on shirts, stickers and other fun Funny Face items and collectibles! Plus they are stars of online videos, coloring books, recipes, games and crafting projects.
So why cranberries? They actually contain nature’s most powerful antioxidant, proanthocyanidins Type A. You can only find this in cranberries! In simpler terms, this antioxidant has been shown to help fight certain harmful bacterial. Another great aspect about Funny Face cranberries is that they are kosher! Plus the cranberries themselves are gluten free. However, they are processed in a factory that also handles wheat products.
Now for the test taste with the little man! Now I personally loved the cranberries and found them quite delicious. However, I’m a cranberry fan. As for my son, I’m not sure he had cranberries before. This was a new food for him. Luckily though, he loved them! He tried Choo Choo Cherry and Rootin’ Tootin’ Raspberry! He giggled at the characters, but was more excited to eat the cranberries.
My son has been loving all the fun goodies created by Funny Face! He’s been playing with the ball nonstop and just loves the stickers. He’s loving the balloons too and we actually used them to decorate for a holiday party since the colors were green and red! Plus I don’t think I can ever have too many chip clips.

My daugter likes raisins and stuff, so she might like these. Especially if they come in a fun package!

My daughter is a big fan of fruit and I really think she would love these. I will give them a try. Thanks for sharing!
I have never heard of this brand before, probably because we live in Texas LOL
My son loves dried Cranberries though, so we might have to buy some from Amazon. Thanks!
