If you’ve seen the uber-trendy Rihanna posing in ads with a container of Vita Coco coconut water, you know that chilled juice from green coconuts is a hot drink.

When Vita Coco was introduced in the U.S. in 2004, coconut water had minimal visibility and sales were confined to certain ethnic communities. A mere five years later, sales of coconut water were about $35 million. And two years after that—this year—U.S. coconut water sales will top $350 million.

That’s impressive—and the reason why we set out to taste the different brands of coconut water to see how much they differ.

We’ve looked at:

  • The different types of coconut water.
  • The different health benefit claims.
  • General nutrition.
  • How the nutrition and flavor vary in 14 different coconut water brands—and among different flavors in the brands.
