This is so random but I had to share. This ZICO Coconut Water is delicious!
ZICO Tao Mango Coconut Water.
I've been buying it for the past couple weeks at my job's cafeteria (which is stocked with a WAY healthier selection than the hospital cafeteria … but I digress) and it is so yummy that I've started purchasing it to drink at home!

I grew up drinking coconut water straight out the coconut so I already know it's good for you. It's like nature's Gatorade, with the same level of electrolytic balance as in our blood and more potassium than a banana. This may seem gross, but it's an identical donor to human blood plasma and in historic wars they would actually use coconut water for transfusions to wounded soldiers! Yeah I know, gross but cool at the same time right?
In the Virgin Islands we say it's good for "men's stamina" if you catch my drift, and everyone knows it's better to drinking as soon as you crack that coconut open because the longer you wait the less of the "goodness" is there.
With all that knowledge you could see why a bottled coconut water would confuse and appeal to me at the same time. I started drinking Vita Coco brand purchased from Whole Foods but honestly this ZICO stuff is in a league of it's own and blows Vita Coco out the (coconut) water! I've been grabbing the Tao Mango flavor and let me tell you, it flippin almost tastes like my father JUST busted open that coconut with his machete and passed it to me. It's. That. Good.
Ok, random moment over. Check out ZICO.com to learn more.
Until next time Glam Fam I wish you
Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Nappyness,
Edited to add: I did finally get to taste the plain ZICO coconut water and I must say it's just "ok" BUT it definitely tastes more like the real thing than any other brand I've tasted and with a drop or 2 of mango nectar I'll be a happy camper. I've also tasted the pineapple and pomberry flavors and they are light and refreshing. I haven't tasted the lime or chocolate flavors yet.
