Distributed by the same folks to provide us Aloic Organic Aloe Vera Drink here in the States, Cocozia Coconut Water in a product of The Philippines and represents yet another entry in this popular genre of beverages.
Like Gatorade, coconut water contains an abundance of electrolytes, such as potassium and magnesium, which greatly help with hydration. The big advantage that coconut water provides point to is that these benefits come naturally rather than from a high fructose corn syrup-oriented source. There have been a lot of derivatives and flavors attempted with coconut water as of late, but Cocozia Coconut Water is simply just coconut water in a Tetra Pak package.
Certified organic and GMO-free, Cocozia comes in a 11.1 oz size, with a white/silver-oriented label design, accented by the brand name in bold green letters spread over multiple lines. The spelling orientation does a nice job of highlighting the "co co" nature, referencing the coconut sourcing.
This drink is hazy in color, with a very sweet/salty taste, like most coconut water products. It is refreshing, but to be honest, there's nothing here that sets apart Cocozia from the competition. A small, nutty flavor is present in the aftertaste, which tends to leave a filmy-like taste on your tongue post-consumption.
Cocozia is your standard coconut water fare. Those who enjoy the hydration and taste of this type of beverage won't be disappointed, however other than the organic/natural claims, there's nothing unique about this product.
