The folks at ZICO Coconut Water contacted me in the past asking if I would try their coconut water product and write up a ZICO Coconut Water Review. At the time I had tried coconut water once before and was not impressed but wanted to give this hydration drink another chance.
I don’t remember which brand of coconut water I drank and did not enjoy, but I know it was not ZICO Coconut Water. In recent years ZICO Coconut Water is the brand I’ve been seeing everywhere, including for sale at Trader Joe’s, so I decided to give coconut water another try and share my experience.
ZICO Coconut Water Review
I was sent the natural (plain) flavor along with the new flavor – chocolate. Believe it or not a latte flavor has been debuted as well. During my ZICO Coconut Water review I drank the ZICO Coconut Water over ice, and found the dilution helped the drink last longer and also mellowed the taste a bit.
In fact the taste wasn’t very strong. I found the drink to be very refreshing. I naturally do like coconut so I found the taste palatable too. The chocolate flavor reminded me of drinking chocolate soy milk.

ZICO Coconut Water Benefits
It was thinner in consistency, but had a similar distinct cocoa flavor. Needless to say my sample bottles were drank rather quickly! Coconut water in general, including ZICO Coconut Water, is touted for its high potassium count (more than a banana).
Now you might wonder, is ZICO Coconut Water healthy? It’s also touted for its electrolytes, which help replenish and rehydrate the body following rigorous activities such as running and power yoga. I tried the drinks both after exercise and just alone.
ZICO Water Review
During my ZICO Coconut Water review didn’t notice any physical difference in my body besides simply feeling my thirst quenched, similar to sipping a sports drink.
The only drawback to ZICO Coconut Water is from what I’ve seen locally even a small individual bottle sell for a few dollars each. The price is a bit steep for my everyday needs.
ZICO is a hydration drink. Coconut water is commonly used as a natural hydration drink for athletes, runners and anyone in daily life.
