CocoZia review and giveaway!

You all know I have love for coconut water, so this was definitely a product I agreed to review.  Cocozia provided me with Organic Coconut Water for my opinion.

CocoZia

I don’t like sports gels or drinks. I don’t drink sweet anything. My coffee and lattes are unsweetened, my seltzer water is unsweetened and I don’t do diet drinks, and I rarely drink juice, so I am not used to having beverages be sweet.  I think that is part of the reason why I have trouble with sports drinks for rehydration.  Coconut water fits that bill perfectly instead. It has only the barest hint of sweet and a very mild flavor.

From the CocoZia website:

COCOZIA 100% Organic Coconut Water is fat-free and contains no processed ingredients of any kind. It’s 100% organic and it’s so good for you! COCOZIA contains fresh, pure water from inside a young green coconut. It’s a clear, naturally sweet liquid that has just 70 calories Make COCOZIA your go-to answer when you want easy-to-drink hydration, coupled with a natural abundance of potassium and magnesium, as well as other electrolytes.

This is the nutrition label:

They point out on the website there are 70 calories in the coconut water and it looks (by my math) that is are 80 for the whole 16.9 ounce container.  Coconut water also has lots of potassium. The only thing missing is salt when replacing a lot of sweat. So, having a few pretzels or crackers with the coconut water is a good solution. This is organic coconut water, and truth be told it tastes the same as regular coconut water :D. 

Cocozia offers 5 flavors: Original, Chocolate, Coffee (WHAT???? Gimmee), Pineapple and Mango. If you want something a little sweeter, the flavored coconut waters do seem to offer that, but still not super sweet.

Coconut water is best served icy cold, in my opinion. I like to pop a bottle in the freezer the night before a ride and that way you can have a slushy cold drink later in the ride when you need it. Some people find coconut water to be an acquired taste, and I understand that – especially if you are used to sports drinks, but it can grow on you – sort of like when you switch from sweetened yogurt to plain.  

Anyhoo – now for the good stuff. This came as a case of 12 to me, so I thought I would share the bounty with 2 people.  I will randomly choose 2 people to receive two  16 oz bottles of Cocozia to try!

 

Anyone can enter this – you don’t have to be in the US, since I will be sending them out!  Yay for all inclusive!! 😀

All you have to do is comment below telling me if you have tried cocout water to be entered.  I will chose 2 winners on Thursday evening, so this will be a quick one.

    It is seldom that one doesn’t have to be in the US to enter so I am definitely happy for this opportunity. No, I have not tried coconut water before but I have heard good things.

    You know Lori i tried coconut water a few years ago when i was running and i just didn’t like it. But i only tried it once and it wasn’t this brand. I’d love to give it another go. And my daughter loves ccconut water so the second bottle would go to her. Thanks for the chance! Hugs! deb

    I tried coconut water more than a year ago – wish I could remember the brand, although I don’t think it was CocoZia. I wasn’t a fan, so I’ve been afraid to try other brands for fear I wouldn’t like them! I would love to try this so I can change my mind about them!

    I have tried coconut water in the past and wasn’t a huge fan. Like you I dislike sugary drinks! (Especially green tea…that is the WORST with sweetener in it, haha). Lately I’ve been reading a lot about coconut water and a friend suggested that the one I had in the past was no good, so I’ve been planning to give it another go.

    I tried it once but it was a while ago. Before I stopped drinking soda so I’m sure I didn’t like it 🙂 Now I mostly drink water.

    I haven’t tried coconut water as I thought it would be really sweet. I do think the coffee one sounds really good!

  7. Leah

    I almost bought coconut water to try once and honestly can’t remember why I didn’t. You always make it sound tasty.

    Curious… Did your taste (or lack of) for sugarless drinks come about before, during or after your weight loss?

    I tried coconut water one time before – my biking friends say it is a secret way to get your power back when you’re lagging behind. Love your idea of the freezer for a slushy drink!!

    Ha! Lori’s comment gave me the first snort of the morning. Ummm, laughing snort, in case someone might think something untoward is going on. Never tried coconut water, but it would be great for me to find a less sweet beverage option.

    I have never tried it but would like to! i use coconut oil daily as i’ve read the healthy benefits it contains!!!!

    I am not a huge coconut water fan, but great giveaway – don’t count me in though, it would be wasted on me. You definitely need the coffee one!

    I’m like Biz, happy to comment but no need to put my name in the draw. I tried coconut water a while ago, and it was “ok”. Cheers to you for the giveaway, and cheers to the winners. Have a great day Lori

    No, I haven’t tried it because I couldn’t find an organic one as yet! I think it sounds so delish though! 🙂
