Coco Loto Coconut Juice with Coconut Jell

Coco Loto is a product of Thailand - I think we paid less than $2 for this little bottle of "juice" (10.5 oz). The juice contained 169 calories.

The ingredients are coconut juice, water, sugar, coconut jell... In my opinion the water should have been the first ingredient b/c that is pretty much what I thought it tasted like. It was a bit thicker than water and a bit sweeter but I really couldn't taste any coconut flavor.

The girl liked it and thought the square jells added some "texture"...she was content with the coconutfulness of it "because kids have more taste buds" she added.

I did like the little bits of "coconut jell" just because it was something different. For the amount of calories and lack of flavor I'd pass on this again.

I give it extra points for the fun tab for opening the bottle.

Hmmm...never heard of this product. It does not sound appetizing; ergo, I will not be trying this out.

it depends on what you define as coconut-y. young coconut drinks, such as that, have a very light flavor.
