CocoZia coconut water

I was given the opportunity to try a case of CocoZia from the manufacturer, Epicurex and jumped on it.  The Kid Loves Coconut water and I've never tried it myself.  I figured I'd give it a go, why not?

I ordered the case from Amazon and in two days it was at my door.  I had gotten the package on one of those hot days and I had walked two miles home from the train station, so I was T H I R S T Y!!  I couldn't wait to get home and pour one over a glass of ice and finally sit down and relax for a few before making dinner.

I grabbed the box off my porch and first thing off the bat there was a problem.  Not from the coconut water, but Amazon, they had obviously not taken any care in managing their packaging details because there was a huge gash in the original CocoZia package and one of the cartons was completely empty.  

The amazon box itself was in perfect condition, 

but after sending my feedback to amazon along with pictures I never received a response, so I will think twice before ordering any liquid or food items from them again

I  filled a glass with ice for myself and poured my cocozia in and took my first sip.  I was apprehensive.  I'd read many mixed reviews and the one that stuck in my head was “it tastes kinda like dirt” It didn’t.  It tasted like... well, nothing really.  It has a slight coconutty flavor, very mild but very thirst quenching.

After opening the rest of the package I set one aside for myself and put the rest of the coconut water in the fridge it let it hang out while I went about my business and made dinner.  When the kid came home he opened the fridge and said to me “You didn't tell me you were getting a whole case! Awesome!!” Grabbed two and drank it down in what seemed one big gulp.  Okay, good to know he’s happy, he loves the stuff.

I don't “Love”it, it’s good, it’s good for you and it did a great job at quenching my thirst and the kid really enjoys it so I'll definitely get it again if I see it.

I use Amazon A LOT and they are usually really good about those types of things.

As for the coconut water, I myself have never had it either, but am constantly hearing about it. It's one of those things that doesn't seem like it is worth the extra expense.

Your post made me want to try it though!

Sarah, it's inexpensive and worth trying. While I'm not a huge fan my son absolutely loves it. You can usually get the little single size cartons in the grocery store for $1 or so.
