Coconut water, I've been addicted to it for the last year. I've tried them all, some good, some bad, some with nothing but coconut water, and some loaded with sugar and artificial flavors. What I love most about coconut water, is that it's a natural energy drink. Forget Gatorade or PowerAde, go for natural stuff.
My favorite brand by far is Harmless Harvest. They're coconut water come from a single source, 100% raw, contains no additive; and instead of using heat pasteurization, they use a pressure system to render it microbiologically safe. Plus, it just seems to taste fresher and lighter to me.
I've been in communication with Harmless Harvest for several months. Back around July, I picked up a bottle, opened it up, and it tasted bad. I contacted them to let them know, and they were quick to respond with some coupons and a logical explanation. Since they're coconut water isn't heat sterilized, it must remain cold from production to consumption. Apparently they've had some issues with distributers not knowing this, and I must have gotten one that was allowed to reach room temperature at some point. They've since done a lot of work to ensure the consumer stream is kept cold. If you've not had coconut water before, give it a try. It's a wonderful post-run recovery drink as well as a great drink on the run, or anytime. I highly recommend Harmless Harvest, even if it is more expensive than many that are out there.
Harmless Harvest would like to spread the word of their product, and has offered to give a few of my followers some free bottles to try out. I’ve not received anything from them for this giveaway, I’m doing it because I genuinely enjoy their product and see it as a superior coconut water to what is found in most stores. In addition, it’s great electrolyte profile make it a good product for runners!
