The Best-Tasting Coconut Water Brands: 7K Reviews

Based on 6,606 Influenster Reviews

Coconut, kale, and avocado might be the most popular cult food products of the last few years. There's coconut oil, coconut paste, coconut butter, coconut milk, coconut flour, coconut cream, creamed coconut, shredded coconut, and coconut sugar.

One of our favorite coconut products though is coconut water, with its sweet and nutty taste. And Influensters say some coconut waters are better tasting than the rest. Here's our list of the winners!

Honestly, I never liked the taste of coconut water. It was weird...it had a weird aftertaste....kind of like having water with sugar in it. One day, I was horrifically thirsty and terribly hot with nothing else in the house to drink BUT coconut water. I pulled up my big girl pants and decided to just bite the bullet and have a carton. I'm not sure if it was the sweltering heat or what, but I was in love! I find that this coconut water is sweet enough not to taste repulsive, but not too sweet so that I feel like I'm not drinking something healthy. I find that drinking this after working out quenches my thirst quite well (especially when it is biting cold). I like getting the 1 liter cartons because I can drink it throughout the day. I know coconut water isn't for everyone, but this one is pretty good!

Out of the coconut waters that I've had, this is my favorite. The flavor is strong but not overbearing. It's really great after a workout or on a really hot day, like the ones we've been having in/near NYC! The first time I received it as a free sample/box from a zico truck but last weekend i bought it at trader joe's and I've already had it! Give it a try! There are several flavored coconut waters but I like the original flavors.

Harvest bay all natural coconut water is so refreshing and tasty. I love fresh coconut water out of a coconut so when I first tried this product I already had it in my mind that it wasn't going to taste as good, but to my surprise it comes very close. Drink when product is thoroughly cooled because that's when it tastes the best!

First, I am not a fan of coconut water - it almost tastes like sour water to me. However, this brand of coconut water I can get behind. It's organic and is better for you (not compared to regular water of course). When I know I'm going to be doing a lot of sports activities or spending a lot of time outside, this is my go-to over a sugary sports drink. Plus, it's a great drink to take to the beach! I'll be doing that tomorrow :)

When I came back from China, jetlagged beyond belief, I reached for this coconut water. When I'm stressed and can barely stand, I treat myself to this coconut water. When I've been eating total garbage all month and need to recalibrate, I buy this coconut water. It is nuttier than the others, free of sweeteners (although subtly sweet), and consistently excellent. It doesn't taste like a tin can, like many I've tried, either. It's just delicious. This may not be your favorite coconut water, but I think it's one of the best, and 9 times out of 10, I'd rather have this than a fancy coffee drink. The only thing better, in my opinion, is drinking straight out of a freshly cracked coconut.
