I don’t know about you, but I just love coconut… coconut water, coconut milk, dried coconut… anything coconut related is on my favourite foods list. This is one of my happy foods, there is something about it that just makes me want to have more and more and I never get bored of it. Pair my coconut obsession with a lovely offer of reviewing some of Cocofina products (all coconut based) and you have one happy me!
I’ve never tried Cocofina before so I wasn’t picky with my selection of products. I asked their PR to make the choice for me, simply because I just wouldn’t be able to decide what I want; I would want it all.
This is what arrived in the post – a great selection of products for a Cocofina noob.
After the initial pictures were taken the first thing eaten were the bars. Yummy! There is a choice of three flavours:
- Organic Coconut & Date Bar
- Organic Coconut & Cocoa Bar
- Macaroon Bar
Both date and cocoa bars are certified organic. They are 100% vegan and have no GMOs. The ingredients list is clear and easy to read, there are no chemical wording or symbols we might not understand. Let’s take a look at the date bar for example…
Ingredients of Cocofina Organic Coconut & Date Bar: Raisins (99% raisins, 1% sunflower oil) (39%), coconut (28%), dates (28%), oats (5%), water. That’s all. And not to forget all these ingredients are 100% organic certified.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
My macaroon bar came in just a silver wrapping, so I actually have no idea what’s inside of it, but trust me, whatever it is, it taste divine.
After I munched on some bars (I didn’t eat them all at once and all by myself… I was a good girl and shared the love), I really needed a drink so it was very handy I had some coconut water around 🙂
The flavoured coconut water comes in three flavour combination:
- Coconut Water Mango & Guava
- Coconut Water Apple & Blueberry
- Coconut Water Tea and Passion Fruit
The last one was my favourite, but this said they all tasted really nice. You know sometimes when you have a flavoured drink you get a weird aftertaste or the flavours feel just a bit off, fake like… this isn’t happening here. All the drinks taste genuine and simply nice. You get a base line of coconut and all the other flavours on top. They are quite subtle and for sure not overpowering. The same applies with the bars. All the drinks are 100% vegan and with no GMOs addition. Despite me loving all the drinks I was a little bit disappointed to see that they are made from concentrate and have natural flavouring and sweetener added to them.
So I checked the coconut water packaging. Woot! 100% coconut water, nothing else. How great is that? The small note on the side of the box made me smile: “Cocofina coconut water may vary in taste, colour and sweetness depending on the season”. At least you know that this is a natural product and not modified to fit the “standard”.
If you are like me are a coconut fan you should really try Cocofina products, especially the water. It really tastes like the real deal.
Do you love coconut and coconut based products?

Oh I could eat the whole screen :o) I love coconuts! The only dud bomb I’ve bought was the coconut soda by Schweppes :o(
Easy, did you try a coconut oil? I give it to my guys with food (just a small spoon) and it does wonders for them. It is also great for some skin problems.
we will try it, it sounds like a magic treatment without all that chemical stuff :o)
Just make sure you get it in a glass jar. Some companies put it into grade 3 plastic jars, which isn’t right for consumption purpose.
I’ve never tried any of these products before, I’m not sure I really fancy them to be honest!
not a fan of coconut I see 😉
I’ve never heard of this company before, but I love coconut anything. And that Coconut & Date Bar kind of made my mouth water a bit. Ok, a lot!
I’ve never heard of this brand before, but they seem perfect for the coconut lovers out there x
I am not a fan of coconut 😦 But these do look good, especially if you like coconut. The flavored waters look interesting.
The chocolate and coconut bar would definitely be a favorite of mine. Great find.
My mum loves coconut water and actually drinks Cocofina’s pure coconut water! But will definitely suggest these other products to her now! 🙂
I love coconut flavour, so I bet this will not disappoint.
This looks like a great taste product!
Oh those sound like a nice healthy and tasty snack! Great for on the go!
Is there anything coconuts can’t do? We use coconut a lot in our house; coconut oil in particular. That in itself is an entire post. I love to buy organic, and these would make an excellent snack for anyone in the house!
I’m a fan of coconut also. I may try these out for convenient snacks to have at my desk.
My mom loves coconut, thanks for sharing these products!
I loved the date bar and wasn’t expecting to. I had an idea about the macaroon bar as I have a free from version already; very nice. Using the nectar instead of artificial sweetener in my tea…flipping gorgeous stuff! 🙂
I have a newly acquired coconut love affair too. I never cared for it when I was younger, but now seek it out all the time. I love dates too so I think I’d love to try that bar!
