Marvel snacks feature Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Spider-Man

So, you’re into Marvel Comics heroes and you want a healthy snack?
A press release from Funky Monkey Snacks has some information you might like.

Marvel is partnering with healthy snack company Funky Monkey Snacks to create a line of all-natural, freeze-dried fruit. The resealable pouches have new flavor profiles and fruits, including:
- Captain America’s Legendary Cinnamon Apples
- Hulk’s Incredible Pineapples
- Iron Man’s Invincible Strawberry Bananas
- Spider-Man’s Ultimate Strawberries.
- Thor’s Mighty Bananas

I like the last one.  That way you can say, “Hey, how is Thor?” and respond, “Thor’s Mighty Bananas.”  Kind of a tie-in to how he was perceived at the beginning of Mark Millar’s Ultimates, perhaps.  With “Iron Man 3″ in theaters next week, lots of us will have Iron Man on the mind.

These have no preservatives, no sugar added and are gluten-free, and also are kosher. So they seem like a pretty reasonable snack choice.   More info at http://www.funkymonkeysnacks.com.
