The folks at ZICO Coconut Water recently contacted me asking if I would try their product and write up a ZICO Coconut Water review. I tried coconut water once before, probably about two years ago, and was not impressed. I don’t remember which brand I drank, but I know it was not ZICO Coconut Water. Lately ZICO Coconut Water is the brand I’ve been seeing everywhere, including at Trader Joe’s, so I decided to give coconut water another try.
ZICO Coconut Water Review
I was sent the natural (plain) flavor along with the new flavor – chocolate. Believe it or not a latte flavor is slated to come out soon 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. 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) and 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.
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.
