Vita Coco – Coconut Water with Pineapple – review

vita-coco-w-pine

I recently reviewed the Vita Coco coconut water and thought I should give the pineapple version a try.

I actually prefer this to the plain coconut water, for 2 reasons. 1, this product, unlike the coconut water only version, doesn’t contain any sugar.  I was surprised and disappointed to discover the addition of sugar to to the Vita Coco coconut water, and admit it has made me conscious as to how healthy these coconut water products really are.

2, the flavour is simply lovely – like sipping a non-alcoholic pina colada on a golden beach on a hot summer’s day. The sweetness is provided by the pineapple, adding a fresh flavour dimension without the saccharine aftertaste. I found it very easy to polish off half the 1L carton in one sitting.

Rating 4.5/5

To remind us that it is actually summer, here’s one of my videos from last year.  Hopefully, it will kickstart the heat wave.
