Cocozia Organic Coconut Water Product Review

2

Last month it was snowing frequently here, and the room heater was on all day. Because of excessive usage of heater, our bodies got heated up. When we thought what to do, first solution that came to our minds was coconut water. Being a Indian, I am used to tasting fresh coconut water. We were very doubtful about how packed coconut water would taste. We tried a couple of brands available in the local grocery stores, but found the coconut water to be Sweet/watery/artificially flavored. That’s when we came to know about Cocozia, available in Amazon

We got moved with certain factors about this product:

  • USDA Organic Certified, Naturally flavored Coconut Water
  • Ingredients just says organic coconut water, no additional water too
  • It’s organic, kosher and contains no GMOs
  • Good rating in Amazon which influenced hubby a lot
  • No straw needed – we can directly drink from the pack
  • Very portable. Conveniently packaged in these Tetra packs which are perfect for putting in your purse or workout bag.
  • Though I am not vegan, its great for many Vegan lovers

Since Amazon has prime shipping on this item, we got it in 2 days. We had ordered a crate of 12 packs of coconut water, 16.9 oz in each pack. Taste wise, this was the closest to fresh coconut water that I have tried in the US. It was not overly sweet, tasted like real coconut water and did not leave a bad aftertaste! Of course, the taste is not going to be exactly same as fresh coconut water, but I would say it is awesome for a packed one. We liked so much that first crate was finished very fast

We started consuming this on a regular basis, and could actually feel the difference. The heat related symptoms reduced. Now we are so used to this coconut water, that I have started using this even in cooking.

Nakd Fruit and Nut Bar- Healthy Gluten Free Bars – Product Review

Snacks are something I relish, but the quest for avoiding junks made me search for a tasty and healthy snack.

Whether a evening snack/ craving for a sweet after meals/ mid morning and evening snack for toddler/ coffee time snack for husband, I find these Nakd Bars are perfect!

I generally prefer substituting sugar with dates or banana or honey in my cooking, and these Nakd bars do exactly that, using dates instead of sugar to give the sweetness 🙂

Something I liked about these bars,

  • They are prepared with 100% natural ingredients (raw, natural and unprocessed food)
  • Nakd bars are wheat, gluten and dairy free
  • Key ingredients in most of the bars are fruits and nuts
  • Contains no added sugar or syrups. Most bars are made with dates and raisins
  • Pretty good in filling a hunger gap
  • Taste delicious
  • I like the packaging too – the bright colors. The different colors actually make it easy to identify each flavor
  • Hubby carries a bar with him in his pocket to munch on, if he feels hungry in office. No more trips to the junk foods available in the vending machines!

After opening the box I opted for the fruit flavor bars and hubby opted for berry and cocoa flavors. As we both like strawberry finally decided to go with Strawberry Crunch first.

After opening the strawberry crunch I was doubtful how will the dates subside the citrus sourness in strawberry, but I tasted and realized dates can actually subside 🙂 It was perfect!

I haven’t tried Rhubarb before, but after tasting the bar loved the sweet and tangy taste and decided to buy rhubarb in future.

Gave a little portion of banana and apple crunch to my son and he asked for the second round. Fruity sweet filling treat.

Whenever my husband sees some form of chocolate flavour in kitchen he will be happy as he can finish it by himself. I am not a big fan of chocolate and have been telling no for chocolate for a long time. Recently I started eating chocolate.. Phew! coming back to Nakd bars

Cocoa Orange and Cocoa delight are my husband’s top pick while caffe mocha was my favorite in this category.

According to him, Cocoa orange looked and smelled great and has a good blend of orange and chocolate flavors.

Cocoa Delight tastes like a fudgy chocolate brownie.

Pecan pie had nuttier texture and definately reminded me of a pecan pie.

I haven’t tasted ginger bread before, but with the mixture of ginger, cloves and cinnamon along with other ingredients, it tasted yummy. I could smell the ginger strongly as soon as I opened the packet.
