#1. Taste Nirvana Real Coconut Water
Taking the gold, Taste Nirvana’s coconut water was milky but light and had an “almost-toasted coconut flavor,” one tester said. Sweet and creamy, “it tastes like dessert.” Reviews were mixed as far as the pulp goes, but lucky for everyone, Taste Nirvana offers its coconut water with pulp and without. It also has a Coco Aloe variety, as well as Thai Coffee, Thai Tea and Green Tea drinks. Bonus: Taste Nirvana, a family-owned operation run by a father-son team, is socially and environmentally conscious, from employing locals at the eco plant located 40 miles outside of Bangkok, where it’s closest to the country’s best agricultural ingredients, to its use of recyclable glass bottles, which gives it a shelf life of two years.
Ingredients: Natural coconut water, coconut pulp (we tried the pulp variety)
