I'd never had coconut water before but had heard tons of people talk about buying it before. To be honest it had always sounded a bit weird to me, despite the fact I love coconut flavored food items. So tonight I decided to split the bottle with my family to give it a try. I LOVED it! The two boys liked it okay but preferred some of the other flavors better. But my favorite was the coconut flavored Lifewater.
The taste was light and refreshing, but the best part for me was....the SMELL!!! The first sip when I put it to my mouth, the smell of coconut was very strong in my nose. I kept saying "Oh this smells so good". It reminded me of being on a beach or suntan lotion. Finally my DH said, "oh you like the bouquet?"
The 20 oz bottle only has 80 calories total which I think is pretty good. So I'm curious....have you ever tried coconut water and did you like it? I'm so glad I tried it and think it will make a great substitute for my diet coke addition.
