Harmless Harvest Coconut Water Review and Giveaway!

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!

I love coconut water. I have been a coconut fiend since birth...anything coconut I devour. From my experience and years of sampling many brands, Harmless Harvest is the freshest packaged coconut water I've ever had. It's like virtually drinking the juice out of a fresh coconut. The taste is natural and delicious, just like the real thing.

Harmless harvest makes the best tasting coconut water I have ever tasted. Before I drink harmless harvest I don't eat anything as to savor the incredible flavor of their product. I also take my sweet time drinking their coconut water because its incredibly delicious. The pink ones are my favorite!!

This is the only coconut water our family drinks, including my 4 and 2 yr old. We love it because its is a great alternative to plain water and so healthy for us.

I actually use coconut water for my no knead bread. It's healthy and gives my bread a nature sweetness.

Harmless Harvest is HANDS DOWN the best coconut water out there. It is like drinking paradise. And as a newbie to running, it is nice to know it has a good electrolyte profile too. Yay!

I don't like coconut water, myself. I have tried different types and flavors..not my cup of tea, but I know people who do! LOL

I love coconut water, but have never tried this brand. I'm not sure I can get it where I live. It's so refreshing and light and electrolyte-ful.

annie said...

I haven't had this brand either. I drink coconut water on occasion. Would drink it more, if I had free samples ;-) I have a box of the Vitacoco in my office. I like coconut water because it is a good source of potassium, while also low in calories and refreshing.

Mom said...

I bet Harmless Harvest is better than what we just drank down from a can. What we had wasn't very good.

Beth Mickens said...

Oh I love coconut water! I love the taste, the health benefits and most of all, how hydrating it is! It's delish!!

Coconut water is great to drink after a work-out to rehydrate you.

It also has a number of important nutrients your body needs including lauric acid, chloride, and iron, as well as essential electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium and calcium.
