Taste Nirvana Real Coconut Water, all natural ingredients, Flavor Review

Who doesn't like a freebie? Taste Nirvana offered to send me their coconut water to review and I gladly accepted. Demi Moore, Salma Hayek  and other popular movie stars are fans of coconut water.

The kids were excited and crazy, so I decided to "numb my nerves" and fill a coffee mug with an alcoholic beverage while I follow them around the neighborhood.  My evening diet consisted of wine, candy and a few specs of dinner. Needless to say,  I didn't feel great this morning.  Therefore, I decided it was a good morning to try the Zico Pure Premium Coconut water I had in my frig.     I've heard coconut water is extremely healthy and can help with hangovers.
