Green coconut water anyone? I dont mind if I do, thank you!
I ran into this interesting product at the local health food store and since I had been on a coconut milk kick I figured coconut water had to be just as good. Interestingly, coconut water is significantly less fattening and bad for you. The flavor is entirely different and you dont get that same creaminess, but it is quite refreshing and apparently full of electrolytes.
There are a couple of flavors of the ZICO product. I tried the orange and passion fruit variety. The added flavors are so extremely subtle that you might miss them altogether if it didnt mention them on the box. They who have created or, perhaps more apt, those who have marketed the product compare the beverage to a more healthy sports drink. To me it tasted like a fruity tea and while I probably wouldnt seek out ZICO in the near future, I wouldnt hesitate to pick it up instead of, say, gatorade.
