Phenom Hydro Coconut Water with GNC Vitamins and Minerals

0

Another coconut water drink! In the past, I’ve tried ZICO, O.N.E, Vita CoCo, CocoZona, Amy & Brain Coconut Juice, Blue Monkey, and Taste Nirvana Real Coconut Water, they all tasted some what similar and now this New Phenom™ Coconut Water. According to Phenom Water, “It is the only coconut water fortified with GNC vitamins and minerals! This 100% natural coconut water, supercharged with GNC vitamins and electrolytes, is an excellent source of hydration with zero fat, added sugar, or cholesterol.”

There wasn’t any aroma coming out from the container when you open it for the first time, but if you sniff it around for couple seconds you could actually sense it a bit. Also, the coconut water wasn’t that refreshing. The color of this Phenom Hydro was similar to all other brands that produce coconut water drinks that I tried before and same for the texture as well. As for the taste, the very first sip tasted salty with subtle coconut flavor. After couple more sips, the coconut flavor started to show up more and the salty taste becomes less dominate in the taste. The sweet taste wasn’t that sweet either and fits perfectly with the coconut flavor. As you swallow down your sip, there’s a subtle salty taste at the end. After finishing drinking half of the container, the drink itself was pleasant to drink, but the salty taste becomes more appealing. Not so much for the aftertaste.

Overall, the taste was not that bad compare to other coconut water drinks. It would be great if the salt flavor reduces a bit.  As for the amount of potassium it contains in the drink, I guess I don’t have to eat a banana every day and this could be the alternative.
