The lovely people at Vita Coco recently sent me these 6 flavours of Vita Coco packaged in a way that made it look like they were sent from overseas in a crate :-) For the past week I have been drinking one a day.
Now I am already a huge fan of the original Vita Coco coconut water, I am convinced that I feel so much more energised and have a sense of well being that I just don't have when I don't include it as part of my diet.
As much as I love skincare and makeup products I am a strong believer that good skin (to an extent) and overall well being come from a good diet and exercise. I do my best to follow these principles, so when I read about the benefits of coconut water I went straight out and bought a carton of Vita Coco.

Review of the flavours I was sent
Natural Coconut Water with Passion Fruit
Out of the 6 this was probably my least favourite - I found it a bit bitter but as I have never eaten a passion fruit I am not sure what I was expecting, probably quite a sweet drink.
Natural Coconut Water with Peach & Mango
I liked this flavour, the mix of peach and mango was pleasant, subtle and refreshing.
Natural Coconut Water with Acai & Pomegranate
This flavour was the only one that had a colour, a murky purple shade. The combo of acai and pomegranate makes this feel like you are drinking a real superfood drink! Certainly an interesting taste but I found it strangely appealing, I was expecting a slightly tart taste but this didn't have it.
Natural Coconut Water with Orange
Out of all the blends I felt that this worked the best, it was lovely. A nice hint of orange.
Natural Coconut Water with Pineapple
A healthy Pina Colada ;-)
Natural Coconut Water
If you are expecting a real coconut flavour you will probably be disappointed as this is not what you get with coconut water. Some may say it is an acquired taste but I was hooked from my first chilled sip. Refreshing to the extreme.
So there you have it, 6 flavours of Vita Coco drunk and reviewed.
All are made with natural ingredients, with the blends these are made with puree of the fruits. I would say that the flavours are like a 'hint of'. I love the brightly designed packaging as they make the product very enticing.
My only criticism would be that in the ingredients information I would have liked to see the percentages of the fruit against the coconut water.
