Product Review: Vita Coco Lemonade*
Back in April I was lucky enough to win some samples of Vita Coco Lemonade in a twitter competition. As I’m a big fan of coconut water drinks, I was looking forward to trying out the latest addition to the Vita Coco range.
Vita Coco describe the lemonade drink as:
- 100% natural
- Having less sugar than other leading UK chilled lemonades (Vita Coco Lemonade has 6g of sugar per 100ml. The leading UK still lemonade had 8.1g per 100ml)
- No preservatives, colourings or additives
- Low calorie and zero fat.
I put the samples in the fridge as soon as they arrived, and was really looking forward to enjoying a refreshing drink after my next run. This was a big mistake! When I returned from my run, I discovered that I was living with a Vita Coco thief!
After managing to drink three bottles in one afternoon, my partner clearly gave the lemonade a big thumbs up!
Last month I finally managed to track down some Vita Coco lemonade in London.
I was really impressed by the flavour of the lemonade, and was left feeling suitably refreshed following my gym session. Lemonade has to be a far healthier option than Diet Coke, my usual post workout drink. It’s a big thumbs up from me as well.
I just wish that I could track down a more local supply!
Dear Vita Coco, I know that you are based in London, but please could you arrange for the supermarkets in Four Oaks and Sutton Coldfield to stock more of your products? I can guarantee that they will sell. Kind Regards, a wannabe Vita Coco addict.
