I had heard rave reviews on this product, and i saw it in the health food section of my grocery store the other day so i decided to buy it and give it a try and do a review of my own for you guys...

Okay, I am going to be completely honest with you all right now... I am currently drinking this stuff while i am typing this and I don't even know if can finish it. Maybe this is a bad product review since I am a little bias on the subject... I am not a big fan of coconuts.
First off, the taste... i guess it tastes like coconut water. ha ha. i wish i could give you guys a better description, i really do. I feel bad about not having the palate to explain what it tastes like, but since i haven't exactly eaten many coconuts... (actually none..ever) i don't know what to compare it to! It really actually has a good flavor, but i guess what's weirding me out is the fact that it feels so watered down... but i guess since its coconut WATER it's suppose to be watery.
Its got a natural sweetness to it that i like. It's not overly sweet like some of those sugary juice drinks out there.

(I just finished it ha ha, so i guess it wasn't so bad that i couldn't drink the whole thing.)

As far as the nutrition is concerned.. i love it. It's low calorie, fat free, cholesterol free and it has 680mg of potassium. That is insane! That right there is enough reason to drink the stuff. Although it does have 15g of sugar per serving, it is natural sugars, so that is okay in my book. I also love the ingredient list. "coconut water and vitamin c". Anything with an ingredient list THAT short, and that contain things i can read make me a very happy girl.

In the end, i wasn't in love with the taste, but thats because i don't like coconuts. I would imagine people who do enjoy coconut would find the taste rather enjoyable. However, saying that, i am willing to try this product again due to it's awesome nutritional value. Maybe the taste will just have to grow on me :)

If you happen to try to product, or have tried it, let me know. i would love to hear ya'll feedback!

Love & Best Health
