I was recently given the opportunity try Phenom Coconut Water. Since these coconut water products have been all the rage lately, I thought, why not? I’ve had it before and while I don’t love the taste of the plain I figured these flavored ones could be pretty tasty.
This brand is by GNC and has a bunch of different flavors that have vitamins and minerals. I especially like that they have one with caffeine and vitamin B for an extra pep! I tasted the Pure (unflavored), Acai Peach, and Blueberry Pomme. Honestly, I really didn’t like the taste of the Acai Peach, but the Pure flavor was one of the best unflavored coconut waters I’ve tried. The Blueberry Pomme wasn’t too shabby either!
I like that the coconut water has hit the scene because it provides yet another option in hydration and that’s a great thing for us endurance athletes. Hydration can make or break a race, especially now in the summer!
According to the Phenom Water website, their product has more potassium than a banana and is 100% natural. Can’t go wrong there!
I’d recommend this product if you like coconut water and want a break from just regular water. The added bonus to this product is the size of the bottles. I got more than one post workout drink from one and actually used one bottle for two runs. I still LOVE my Nuun during a run, but the coconut water is a great way to mix it up.
Have you tried it? What do you think about coconut water?
