I won't lie, I love getting free stuff. Sometimes I win it and sometimes I just get it. Is that still winning? Hmmm, maybe so. Free is free, right? Well, this time it was a sampling of VitaCoco's pure coconut water. They were giving these out and I snatched one up as quick as I could. I actually thought I was going to get a coupon or at best, a tiny little sample. These were actually large packages (about the size of my hand), but I have not seen them in my stores yet, so I'm not sure if they are the full size. I'm sure my mailman wasn't impressed with the weight. That box was heavy!
There has been a lot of buzz lately about the health benefits of coconut water, so I was anxious to test it out. Of the three flavors sent, I liked the plain and the pineapple best. The flavors aren't very strong - you mostly just taste the coconut. It was very light and refreshing.
I'm definitely going to be looking for these in stores. I was really impressed with flavor and it's a nice change from plain old boring water. If you see some, I would recommend that you try some, too.
