Zico Coconut Water with Mango

Zico Coconut Water with Mango
Made by: Zico Beverages LLC

Origin: USA

Imported into the UK by: Zico UK Ltd

Zico coconut water is a pale, off white colour. The drink is slightly cloudy and contains a small amount of fine coconut particles floating in suspension.

Ripe mango aromas on the nose, this is fruity with custard apple and creamy vanilla to follow. The aroma develops more tropical notes as it settles: Pineapple rings and tinned fruit salad, with a warm husky, nutty note.

This is much lighter on the palate than the nose would suggest, providing a delicate coconut flavour and salty-sweet balance. There is a faintly creamy texture, a little sweet fruit, and the suggestion of soft young coconut meat, before the drink ends in a short finish.

Packaging claims: Gluten free, only 60 calories, nature's sports drink, more potassium than a banana, zero fat, no added sugar, 5 essential electrolytes, low acidity

  1. I think you should try Vita Coco peach and mango flavor! It's better than Zico and is actually all natural. When Zico was purchased by Coca Cola, they changed the recipe and the "100% natural" is not 100% true.

  2. Thanks Kat- interesting and it's funny you said that, I've a carton of that very drink you mention right here in my this space!
