Review: Coco Rico Coconut Soda from Puerto Rico!

Review: Coco Rico Coconut Soda from Puerto Rico!

Did you know the Coco Rico Coconut Soda in the yellow can is the same as the one in the green can?

It’s by the same company, Coco Rico LLC and it’s distributed by Good O’ Beverages. They both have the same ingredients and nutrition facts as well.

About Coco Rico Soda

Coco Rico is a coconut flavored soda made in Naguabo, Puerto Rico. It’s not only a Puerto Rican favorite but a variety of different people also enjoy the soda.

I couldn’t find any information on the distributor, Good O’ Beverages other than they’re based in Bronx, NY. Currently their website is under construction.

Unfortunately, the Coco Rico website is also under construction.




Taste

The soda is very simple. It tastes like carbonated coconut water, except sweeter than natural coconut water.

Here’s the thing! The green can has “natural coconut flavor” written on the can and yet in the ingredients, they use coconut extract to flavor the soda. So if you’re thinking that you’re drinking real coconut water from a coconut that has been carbonated, that’s not the case. According to the USFDA, food extracts are considered natural because the extract is an ingredient “extracted” through a natural method from a natural product. It’s important to know how these words are defined.

It’s still a good soda. It’s light and enjoyable.

Would I buy Coco Rico Coconut Soda again?

Answer: Yes.

Worth Trying?: At least once.

I’ve had this soda countless of times throughout my life. I enjoy it and it beats other sodas that have way too many ingredients, artificial flavors and food dyes. Like I said, this soda is light and good tasting so it doesn’t leave you feeling heavy or tired after you drink it.
