I purchased this product and tried it twice before throwing the rest into the trash. The taste of coconut water was very faint. I really wanted to like this product because of the price, but this was a no go for me. So disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Influence Great Product
I love this product. I don't care that it has a brownish color or that it doesn't taste like coconut water which is bought off the shelf. It isn't as sweet, but then again it's not loaded with additives and artificial sweeteners. I like the taste as it is, but usually add a scoop of Swanson Vitamins ribose for each eight ounces mix of coconut water. It makes for a great pre- and post workout recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthnut58 Great price for a great product
I'm not concerned with the brown color. I'm aware that it's a concentrate. It's very convenient and affordable. I add it to my water bottle and I'm good to go. I'm a believer in the health effects of drinking coconut water. Works for me. Best sport drink ever !

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gingersnap29 Did not care for the taste
I followed the directions and used the exact measurement per amount of water and did not care for the taste. It was almost like it was watered down. I tried a little more, and the taste was stronger, but I did not care for it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PatchestheMermaid Definitely not a fan.
This is one of the very few products I have ever bought from Swanson that I did not care for. This stuff doesn't taste like coconut water and it actually tastes quite awful. The only good thing about this stuff is the price. 15 servings of coconut water for under 10 dollars is a pretty big deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MovieBuffinLA Cost Effective way to drink coconut water
I've read about the many benefits of drinking coconut water. I like using the concentrate, as it's much cheaper and less waste. The taste on its own is not great (but then I don't think the bottled coconut waters are that great either). I have found that adding a small amount of pineapple juice makes this quite palatable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ami25 Not worth it...
It was dark och tasted awful! I was hoping to flavor my water but it was just horrible!
What a waste of money. I wonder if it's OK to dump it in the compost bin so that I can at least get something out of this mess?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dewdropmas Good Value
This product when reconstituted tastes very much like the refrigerated product I have purchased at the grocery store, only the cost savings is significant: on sale, it is approximately 1/6th the cost of the ready-to-drink product. It is refreshing, and a healthy alternative to drinking Emergen-C. It is also compact and portable to use while camping, taking up very little space in the cooler or fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by trailrocketgirl An Excellent Product
This is a less expensive way to hydrate with coconut. I use it in my water bottle for workouts. It makes nice iced drinks and it takes the edge of smoothies made with vegetables. I blend vegetable smoothies for breakfast every day. The coconut concentrate sweetens the drink and makes it much more palatable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by otis10 Bad Taste
I'm sure this is a quality product that has beneficial effects, but I can't get past the bad taste. It is very difficult to cover up the bad flavor by mixing it in with other drinks. This is one that I won't re-order.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GoPax TERRIBLE TASTE & DARK BROWN
I've used many brands of coconut water, and purchase it frequently. I bought 3 bottles because Swanson's quality is typically excellent, but was very disappointed. Flavor and color vary by brand, but this is the worst I ever tasted. It is dark brown, even after mixing with water. It tastes terrible, even after adding fruit juice concentrate, or mixing into smoo thies. The taste ruins everything. I cannot recommend it... or even finish drinking it... a waste

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karlo Very Convenient
I tried the coconut water concentrate. I use it in my fruit smoothie. Its very convenient to just add a tablespoon of this to my smoothie, and then add my filtered water. I am getting the gift from nature in my smoothie of this very healthy product, and its just very convenient and easy to take it out of the refrigerator, add one tablespoon, add the water and I have a yumi healthy smoothie.

I find this concentrate is easy to add to another drink. Has a similar flavor to what I have used in the past. It is very convenient and a good price as well. I really enjoy the quality of Swanson Products. Thanks

Rated 2 out of 5 by roseh not thrilled with
I bought this since we like coconut water during the summer. I was disappointed, it does not taste as good as the kind we normally buy. I was hoping to save buying all the individual cartons and less waste to the environment. I will not be buying this product again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DeeAnnahhhhhhhhh for superjuices & smoothies
i pour in a little of this (along with some water) when i make superjuices & smoothies with my Vitamix for an extra boost of the good stuff. i dont really like the taste of coconut water on its own. this value is much better than using the other coconut waters!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Logsitter Horrible Tasting
My husband and I love plain natural coconut water and drink it regularly. We decided to try this product. What a disappointment! The water when this product is mixed in is brown. Neither one of us could take more than one sip of this because the taste was so bad. It doesn't even come close to the taste of real coconut water.
