Review: Cocozia Coconut Water

/

If you spend any amount of time on the internet, you will know that all things coconut are the biggest trend. It started off last summer with coconut water and various companies began manufacturing their versions.

This year it has spread to coconut oil. Its the healthier alternative to other oils, you can cook with it and bake with it and bloggers every where love it. Hell, there are unrefined versions that you can even put on your face.



Basically if it includes coconut, it's been super popular for the past 18 months or so, which is why I wasn't all that surprised when I was contacted by a company named Epicurex asking me to review their product 100% Organic Coconut Water called Cocozia.

First, I did what any good blogger does and looked up Epicurex. They are an importer and distributor of organic drinks. Their two brands are Aloic, an aloe vera drink, and Cocozia, the organic coconut water. They have three offices and from what I understand, a fairly new company.

I am not a huge health nut by any means, but I do believe that your diet should consist of healthy, low-sugar low-fat items much more than the sugar-laden preservative packed counterparts. Cocozia fits this mission.

For something as simple as coconut water, they pack a pretty big punch compared to their competitors. Cocozia is kosher, USDA Organic Certified and Non-GMO project verified. On top of that, they have NO added sugars and zero fat. The sole ingredient: organic coconut water.

While you can't find Cocozia in stores, you can order it in cases of 12 from Amazon.

First, let's talk about the packaging.  Cocozia brings out the juice-box lover in us all, by serving their coconut water in a simple but recyclable silver carton, with a straw. (I like to add my own) Each carton is just 70 calories and has 14 grams of natural sugars.

The facts: on the back of the carton you find out the coconut water has electrolytes (I really didn't know this) and that it's a good drink to have after or during working out because of how hydrating it is.

And the part you're really all looking for,

The taste: I need to remind you that this is simply coconut water with no extra additives. The water that comes out of a real coconut is exactly what you're going to taste here. It's not sweetened.

Personally, I like mine ice cold and partially frozen. The flavor is mild. It's not quite coconut but not quite anything else either. It's hard to explain.

If you are a sugar junkie, I'm not positive you're going to like this. But if you need something really refreshing after a workout, or maybe you had one too many glassses of wine last night, I think you should definitely reach for this.
