I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with coconut water but... I'MOBSESSED!! I can't get enough of it! I've always liked coconut water but never really drank it often. Let's face it, store-bought coconut water doesn't compare to the real coconut taste, not even close! My love for coconut water resurfaced when I went to Brazil last December. You can literally buy a coconut in every corner. They're everywhere! I must have drunk about three of these delicious coconuts per day. Beach and a cold coconut. I can't think of a better combination!
Sadly, when I came back, not only did my amazing vacation end, but so did my daily dose of this refreshing drink.
That all changed when my sister and I went to The Fresh Market two weeks ago. My sister was browsing through the juice aisle, when she spotted coconut water. She called me over and with excitement said, "Look what I found!" She knew how much I loved it. Too bad I didn't share the same excitement as her. To me, it looked like another typical bottled coconut water, like the many I've tried in the past, and was not impressed. We ended up purchasing it just to try it.
OMG!!!! Could it be that the Brazilian coconuts and I were reuniting?
Yes, yes we were!
I finished the entire liter bottle that same day. It seriously brought me back to Brazil! As you're reading this, you're probably thinking to yourself, "What's the brand???"
Well my friends, I present to you the best coconut water ever:
Not only does this taste exactly like the real thing, it's also organic! Which might be the reason it taste so amazing. Besides being USDA certified organic, its low fat-low cholesterol, gluten-free, has no sugar added, and only 40 calories per serving! This coconut water couldn't be any more perfect!
Right now they're on sale, 2 for $6, at The Fresh Market. I know because I bought six, I mean two this evening. (If you don't have a store nearby, you can also purchase on Amazon.)
Do yourself a favor and buy some- preferably a whole case! Hopefully when you try it, you'll be just as pleased as I was.
