If not, then you should be. A lot of people have been asking me lately, “Simon, what’s the big deal about coconut water?” Celebrities and health fanatics alike have been raving about the wonders of coconut water, so I did a little research and here’s what I’ve learned. Coconut water is the second purest liquid next to water itself! This pure water comes from unripe or green coconuts. When the coconut is ripe, the water inside will harden and become a part of the white flesh of the coconut, which is used to make coconut milk.
Coconut water is full of electrolytes, calcium, potassium and magnesium which makes it basically like an all natural sports drink. One cup-full of coconut water contains more electrolytes than most sports drinks and more potassium than a banana.
We carry a few different coconut waters throughout the store:
Zico Coconut Water
Zico used to come in an aseptic package, but now comes in this handy re-sealable plastic bottle. There are many different flavors that add a fun twist to the drink.
Naked Juice Coconut Water
You will find this cold in the Naked Juice cooler of most stores. Super clean taste and comes in a handy aseptic package.
C2O Coconut Water
This one comes from Thailand and has a slightly different flavor that I love. It comes in a can and it stays super cold. It is quickly becoming one of our best sellers.
Vitacoco Coconut Water
Vitacoco has been around the longest and is an excellent coconut water. To my taste buds it’s a little thicker than the others, with a little more pulp worked in with the water.
For whatever you are doing outdoors this weekend try rehydrating with coconut water.
