I was recently sent a sample of Lima Citron Zico 100% Pure Coconut Water to try. Zico says their Lima Citron flavor has, "more potassium than a banana, four other naturally occurring electrolytes, only 60 calories per 14 ounce bottle, zero fat, zero added sugar and zero cholesterol. It is low in acidity and high in potent antioxidants."

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 14 ounces
Calories: 60
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 160 mg, 7%
Carbohydrates: 13 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugar: 12 grams
Protein: 0 grams

After I got home from a long sweaty run, I opened a chilled bottle of Zico Lima Citron - doesn't that name make it sound more like an alcoholic beverage than coconut water? I took a swig and found that this is sweeter and thicker than water, so it's something to get used to. I think what gets me about this stuff is that when I hear "water" I expect ... well, water. I liked the flavoring of the lime and citrus though, and I thought it added a lot to the coconut water taste.

Each 14 ounce bottle provides 60 calories,no fat, 180 mg of sodium (7% of the daily value), 610 mg of potassium (17% of the DV), 12 grams of sugar but no fiber or protein.

The ingredients list is short and simple, 100% natural coconut water from concentrate, natural flavors and citric acid. At $2.50 a bottle this on sale, this isn't cheap, but if you're looking for a fruity hydration fix, this may be the one for you. So tell me - are you a fan of coconut water? I'm not totally sold on the taste yet, but it's growing on me - and the nutrition facts + ingredients list can't be beat. This has less sugar than the Vita Coco Coconut Water with Acai & Pomegranate and tastes better to me than the Vita Coco 100% Pure Coconut Water.
