Regular readers will know I love almost all things coconut so how could I resist when a friend gave me a bottle of ZICO Chocolate coconut water to try? I mean, sure, I’m not a chocolate fan, but hey, it’s got coconut water in it and it’s got coconut cream (that’s what the ingredient list says and I love coconut cream). A pal of mine insisted that I try it. She loves it, her kids love it, and she MADE me try it.
Yes, I tried ZICO Chocolate coconut water. About that….
Product review: What ingredients are in ZICO Chocolate coconut water?
Here are the ingredients that went into making the ZICO Chocolate coconut water: coconut water from concentrate, water, cane sugar, coconut cream (coconut extract, water), cocoa pressed with alkali, natural flavor, carrageenan, gellan gum.
Hm…I’m hoping I’ll like the ZICO Chocolate coconut water. I’m not a big fan of coconut water in general so I’m hoping the coconut cream will balance out the flavours. The cocoa will either make things better or make things a whole lot worse since you know I’m not a big fan of chocolate. I’m also relatively clueless about what coconut water can do for you so I take a closer look at the bottle and this is what I learn.
Who knew it was an excellent source of potassium or a source of magnesium? I also had no idea it would be a source of IRON? Huh…who knew.
Taste Test: how does ZICO Chocolate coconut water taste?
Well here goes nothing.
For this taste test, I’m the only one in the family willing to try the ZICO Chocolate coconut water. Open the bottle and this is what you see.
Well… it looks like chocolate.
Taste, well, um…it tastes like coconut water with cocoa in it? I know, I know, I should expect as much but I have to admit it’s an odd mix. For me, the two just don’t seem to gel well together. It’s a light drink. It’s not sweet even though it does have cane sugar in it or at least, it didn’t seem sweet to me.
My guess is, if you like coconut water and you like chocolate, you’ll probably like ZICO Chocolate coconut water. I personally think this was wasted on me since I don’t like either! It’s no fault of ZICO, it’s strictly because I’m not a big fan of coconut water in general. Like I said in the beginning, my gal pal absolutely loves the ZICO Chocolate coconut water and so do her kids. For me, I’m better off with some coconut cream, maybe a coconut popsicle, or some coconut ice cream….yes….
