I was recently asked by Epicurex to review their organic coconut water called Cocozia. They sent a case for me to try. I eagerly put it in the fridge and the next day pulled one out, opened it up, and smelled it. Isn’t that what every body does?
I had expected to smell a fruity, sweet smell which would make me more eager to swallow swig quickly. However, that was not the case. It actually smelled like dirty dishwater.
So my first thoughts of it smelling like the coconut milk we drank in Mexico quickly faded. At this point, I wasn’t even sure I’d be able to take a swig, much less drink the entire carton.
I manage to take 2 sips. I would have stopped at 1, but needed to drink a little more so I could describe it for you. It has the texture of milk, but the flavor was bitter and the after taste was not pleasant. I’m afraid beyond these 2 details, I can’t tell you anymore as it was not palatable at all.
I wanted this to be so good, because I’ve read nothing but rave reviews about how healthy coconut water is for you. I don’t want to waste the case that Epicurex sent me, so I’m probably going to try cooking with it or possibly washing my hair with it.

Have you tried any coconut water? What’s your take on it?
