For Costco members last time I was there they still had this for 14.99 on sale . Reg price is 19.99.

Thanks. In for 4. Note that they expire June 1, 2013 (hence the price drop).

Serach : ZICO Pure Premium Coconut Water , under " 10 NEW under 17.07 " click that and scroll down until you see Amazon warehouse deals as the seller it states it on there as condition.

FYI, the last time I ordered ZICO 33oz from Amazon, they had to reship twice.
The design of the container makes it very sensitive to separating/tearing at the spout if the box is dropped or handled with less than the utmost care.

Thumbs up! Coconut water is sooo healthy.. Zico is good but all boxed juices are pasteurized so MUCH BETTER tasting than those juice boxes are Fresh young white coconuts

--even those who don't like the coconut water in boxes LOVE fresh young white coconut straight from the coconut --cutting it is easy with 4 square chops to the top (youTube how-to it)

Coconuts are great for runners (10x the potassium of sports drinks & 2x the potassium of a banana) & with healthy glucose & fat-burners in it + protein & antioxidants -article with references by Dr. Mercola http://articles.mercola.com/sites...rator.aspx

You can find fresh young white/green coconuts at Asian markets nationwide like www.99ranch.com locations- http://99ranch.com/store-locator.aspx -
as
well as www.Hmart.com locations - http://www.hmart.com/company_new/...e_code=NLS

Fresh young white coconuts range from 70 cents to $1.49 a coconut single or 70 cents to 99 cents by the box (9 in a box) in Asian markets & each has 11 to 16 ounces of coconut water so a much better deal than the processed tetrapacks.

Whole Foods, Mother's Market, & Sprouts have also started carrying fresh young white coconuts but they charge double the price of Asian markets ($2-$3 a coconut at Whole Foods/Mother's Market)
&
they get the same coconuts as 99 Ranch & H Mart --but at least there's always a Whole Foods everywhere nearby.

If you have a choice, coconuts from tropical SouthEast Asia like Thailand are the best & sweetest,2nd is Maylasia, 3rd is Phillpiines --Mexico is the least sweet.

You can also get the canned coconut water like C20 as well as 16 oz cans made in Thailand at 99cents & dollar stores too (not as good as fresh coconut but better tasting than the processed tetrapacks)

MOre benefits from coconut oil too:

I can confirm the $14.99 price at Costco. Picked one up this past week.

Too bad zico is owned by pepisco and that they fought against labeling gmo's.

There is sweet water inside a tender coconut. Who poured the water inside the coconut? Was it the work of any man? No. Only the Divine can do such a thing.

I wish the medical board would strip the "Dr." from his last name. What a trash DO. The references that he has to actual medical journals are intolerably incomplete and leaves out important data that is necessary to understand the true meaning behind the results.

One thing you perhaps misread is the level of potassium in bananas. A single banana has 450mg of potassium, while a cup of coconut water has about 600mg of potassium. You really shouldn't be drinking this stuff everyday like you would a soda or juice. These levels of potassium could be problematic especially if you have renal disease or are taking stuff like digoxin. Anyways, just my 2 cents.

I heard too much is bad also, I usually mix this stuff with Gatorade and tons of water for my workouts or tennis seems to work well since I usually cramp a lot.

LOL,I was biochemistry major at UCBerkeley -coconuts have 61 mg of potassium per ounce so a fresh young coconut gives about 10-16 oz of coconut water & would have 610 mg to 960 mg of potassium, which is 2x that of a 450 mg banana if you get a large fresh young coconut

I grew up in the tropics with family
&
we drank LOTS of COCONUTS EVERY DAY (2 to 4) (no joke, they grow wild on the trees & are super cheap there)
&
still drink on average once or twice a day in Cali & never had any problems with them --instead, they make us feel great. Coconuts contain healthy medium chain triglycerldes
as well as lauric acid/monolaurin with anti-bacterial, anti-viral & anti-fungal properties.

I'm a athlete/Mixed Martial Arist/bodybuilder with muscle, 8% bodyfat & a 6-pack, rarely ever get sick & my doc is amazed at my blood pressure & HDL levels.

Coconut water is MUCH HEALTHIER than fructose juice or hi-fructose corn syrup soda.

6+ month studies by Princeton Medical Center showed that rats given hi-fructose corn syrup gained 48% more fat, especially belly fat, than control group fed other sugars, despite CALORIES BEING KEPT THE SAME FOR BOTH GROUPS, which dispels the MYTH that a 'calorie is a calorie is a calorie' spouted by ignorant people for decades.

Also, multiple 2+ year studies by Stanford Medical Center show that those on a hi-protein/low-starch/higher fat diet lost TWICE as much fat & still had healthy cardio levels than those on a low-fat diet. Dozens of other studies showed the same results too

Previous studies funded by corn lobbies used short studies that lasted only a few hours to a few days to show that there was "no difference" just like previous studies funded by cigarette makers showed "no difference" in cancer rates between non-smokers/smokers because those studies lasted only a few days to a few weeks also.

Unlike fructose juice drinks, coconut water is mostly glucose, which is why it can be & was used as IVs in the tropics by medical doctors.

Glucose is metabolized well by all cells in your body for energy but fructose like alcohol is metabolized by your liver easily into belly fat, which
is why many who drink lots of alcohol get a "beer belly" or those who drink lots of fruit juice get a pot belly/vegetarian "Buddha belly"

I laugh at other experts who recommend hi-fructose corn syrup drinks (sports or soda) or eating pretzels for your sodium, LOL (all the while trying to tell others to cut their salt intake or sugar intake).

I tasted this last year for the first (and only) time. First, to me it tastes barely (if anything) of coconut, and the taste that is there isn't really a selling point. Second, it's kind of salty, which is strike two. Finally, it's a little slimy. In short, I'll stick with actual water.
