What kind of bed does a monkey sleep in?
[insert uproarious laughter here]
You have to love a food manufacturer who cares enough to put terrible puns on his packaging. Thank you, Newman Organics Dried Apricots, I will be buying you again.
Not least because that means I can make lots more of these delicious, easy and relatively healthy snacks.
I say ‘relatively’ because obviously they are high in sugars and therefore little energy bombs. Try not to guzzle four at once (slightly impressed side eye to Hubs) because that’ll probably result in belly-ache and a sugar crash.
