Naked, VitaCoco, ZICO, Amy & Brian - with pulp, no pulp.
I grew up on and island in the pacific, eating fresh coconuts whenever possible. When I moved to the continental US, I missed it - and then a few years ago, it seems like coconut burst into the dieting "scenes" and more and more coconut water brands pop up weekly. I jumped at the chance, and drank these canned/packaged drinks expecting the sweet, sweet nectar of life itself - but instead got a weird.. coconut-like drink instead. These drinks taste/feel nothing like coconut water - are they even good for us? A local paleo food place sells amy&brians, and i feel like that brand is the worst of the bunch - it tastes like sugar sugar sugar.
Whats all your feelings about this? Are these brands good for us or has their processing removed all benefits?
