Jim Leff thinks Nature Factor organic young coconut water tastes fresh—”almost as good as a freshly hacked open young coconut on the beach at Rio de Janeiro,” he says. OK, no it’s not. “But it’s more like that than any canned coconut water I’ve found.”

It is, in fact, “the first brand to come along that doesn’t taste like all the others to me,” says Jim Leff. “Subtle, quenching. None of those sour/stewy/cooked flavors, and much less sweet than the usual (no added sugar!).” It’s really never going to be the same farm-fresh product you get from a street vendor at the beach, says itaunas. “Very handy to have a few cans in the fridge, though,” says Jim Leff.
