Keeping hydrated with Vita Coco Kids drinks - review & giveaway!

As official LolliBop bloggers this year, we were excited to hear that Vita Coco Kids will be bringing a pop up beach club to the festival!  We're looking forward to joining in with their sandcastle competitions and relaxing beneath their palm trees!

Vita Coco Kids sent some of their fruity coconut water drinks for The Princess and The Pickle to try.  We took them with us on our recent visit to Exbury Gardens and after lots of running around on one of the warmest days of the year, they were definitely in need of a refreshing drink.  

The Princess and The Pickle both opted for the classic Apple & Blackcurrant, while myself and Daddy tried the tropical Mango & Pineapple flavour.  We all enjoyed the subtle fruity flavours with a coconut undertone and were happy to see they contain natural fruit flavourings with no added colourings or preservatives.  They also contain naturally occurring potassium to help keep little ones full of energy on hot days like this!

The Princess and The Pickle also found the straws quite cool with the double bendy bit which helps avoid losing your straw inside the carton!  However, I did find the straws difficult to puncture the cartons without spilling some of the drink - I think a slightly different shaped carton or better positioning of the foil would be an improvement.

I do agree they are a healthier option than other fruit juice drinks which can be full of sugar and I would definitely buy them for taking on days out, such as LolliBop!


We have a fab competition to win a case of each flavour from Vita Coco Kids!  Just enter via the Rafflecopter form below... and if you're going to LolliBop we'll see you on the beach!

We received a pack of Vita Coco Kids drinks for the purpose of this review, all opinions are my own.
