Tunky Monkey's Sweet Treats Review & GIVEAWAY!!

As you all probably know already, my darling son just turned 6 years old. For those that don't know, my little man is extra special. He is autistic, which has a vast impact on his social adaptation and stress level.

Basically, anything too exciting can be very overwhelming to the point of making him sick. That has caused many problems for him, and resulted in us limiting how we celebrate with him. We would never want to upset him by trying to make him happy, so we always kept his birthday(and every other special event) very low key.

We did some gifts and cake(which was mainly for pictures since he won't eat it) at home with family, and that was the extent. But he has made extraordinary progress over the past year. He is leaps and bounds above where he was last year at this time.

His intelligent is astounding, and he has improved his communication, social and coping skills tenfold. I am so proud of how far he has come and all the progress he continues to make daily.

That is why I was so happy when he began talking about his birthday and having a party(months ago). It was all he would talk about day after day was birthday party, presents, decorations. While he was excited and anticipating it every day, he was very patient about actually waiting for the day to arrive.

Since this was going to be his first real birthday party, I wanted it to be grandiose.  I did everything I could think of to make this year extra special for him. We visited some theme parks and had venue birthday celebrations with friends, we had a blast.

I still wanted to have our traditional home birthday too, but I wanted to make it a little more fun for him. Since he does not eat cake(or anything with a fork or spoon, ever), I wanted to have a treat that he would like instead.

I know that he would like cake if only he would try it, so I decided to give him exactly that only in a much more fun and festive way. What better than Cake Pops? Of course, not all Cake Pops are created equal, so I did some searching and found a company that I fell in love with.

Tunky Monkey's Sweet Treats is fabulous. The name alone was enough to make me love them, but then seeing the pictures on their site and looking at their huge selection and incredible flavors, I knew they would be perfect to make the special treats for my son's big day.

I reached out the them, and the kindness I was shown in the reply reconfirmed what I already knew, that Tunky Monkey's Sweet treats is a very special company.

I had a few ideas as to the theme, but I had nothing specific in mind. I just gave them free reign to create something fabulous. I was pleasantly surprised to find they were PERFECT.
They came carefully packed with tons of bubble wrap to keep them in pristine condition. They were tied into 3 adorable little goodie bags. They looked so cute.
I love there were different colors, that is so whimsical. They all have the fabulous Blue Puzzle Piece(Autism symbol) as well which I really love.
We received 3 delicious flavors.

Red Velvet:
And Strawberry:
They all taste phenomenal. And the texture is exquisite. They are so moist and the coating is so creamy and delicious. It is like heaven on a stick. I cannot even express how fabulous they are.

I can say that I cheated on my diet t have a few, and it was totally worth it.
Of course, I am not the only one that loved them. Hubby said they were "epic" and "addictive".
My daughter couldn't say it, but she thought they were great. and her, "Yeah" every time she saw one(meaning she wanted one) was certainly evidence of her love for them.
And of course, the man of the hour, the birthday boy loved them too!!
I knew he would love them if he tried them, and the fun colors and awesomeness of them being on a stick, no fork or plate needed really made them exciting for him.

I am so glad that I finally found a birthday treat that he actually likes. I know how we will be celebrating from now on. Only we will need to get a lot more next time, because we all love them so much.

As beautiful and delicious as these treats were, there was one thing that really made them stand out as superior, and that is the love. I can tell these were made by people who really care. It was especially obvious thanks to the lovely card enclosed with the treats.
If that is not above and beyond, I don't know what is. That is so sweet. The personal touches are what take amazing products and make elite companies. Anyone can have good products, but I will go out of my way for the something extra every time. Tunky Monkey's Sweet Treats has it all. I highly recommend them and their incredible treats to anyone with an event to celebrate or a sweet tooth to indulge.

And since they are so sweet(pun intended), Tunky Monkey's Sweet Treats is giving you lucky fans the chance to win some of their incredible treats. We are giving away a Back to School Cake Pops and Cake-Ups dozen to one very lucky winner. Enter below. Good luck.
