Yay for two consecutive days of double posting!
(If you’ve never tried coconut water, are afraid to or haven’t liked other brands, please keep reading! This one is worth trying!)
A few months ago, I received a bottle of ZICO Coconut Water from Rachael at Ready to Get Sweaty as part of a foodie pen pal package. I enjoyed my ZICO so much that I purchased a bottle to put in a foodie pen pal package that I had sent out. Michelle from ZICO Coconut Water took notice of Foodie Pen Pals and the fact that I had sent out some ZICO and contacted me with an offer I couldn’t refuse!
Michelle offered to send me some of ZICO Coconut Water’s Natural Flavor as well as their new 1 Liter of Chocolate Coconut Water to review. I was extremely pumped — especially for someone who was completely turned off by coconut water earlier this year!
Let’s learn a little about coconut water shall we?
ZICO contains the five electrolytes that support your body with what it needs to stay hydrated and perform at your best. One ZICO has more potassium than a banana – 15 times more than most sports drinks – to prevent cramping. Drink ZICO before or during a workout for the natural energy you need for optimal performance. After a workout, ZICOreplenishes and re-hydrates you to aide recovery.
PACKED WITH POTASSIUM
As much potassium as a banana.
sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus
THE ULTIMATE HYDRATION DRINK
supports rapid hydration
Coconut water has been used as an intravenous fluid and saved lives
lower acidity than sports drinks and juices
I received 4 containers of Natural Coconut Water and a 1 Liter container of Chocolate Coconut Water in an insulted drawstring bag!
For starters, the bag is extremely handy for outdoor activities! Keeps my drinks cool and my hands free!
I used the Natural Coconut water to refuel after exercise (running/hot yoga). The water was refreshing and quickly aided in my recovery. I also really like the fact that this water contains Potassium. I don’t seem to get enough potassium and end up with muscle cramps so this was very helpful!
On to the Chocolate! I have a major sweet tooth so when I was given the opportunity to try Chocolate Coconut Water I was very excited. First off, I really like thee 1 Liter bottle it is perfect for when you are at home and just want something refreshing to drink…I like to save smaller sized containers for on the go! I enjoyed this treat with some strawberries. I’d describe chocolate coconut water as tasting like a less-rich version of chocolate milk. I’ll definitely be buying this again. Additionally, this is a healthy way to satisfy a chocolate craving!
(Please note: I was not compensated for this review. I did, however, receive complimentary ZICO)
ZICO Coconut water has to graciously offered to give one lucky ready a case of Natural Water as well as a 1 Liter Bottle of Chocolate Coconut Water!
