Taste Test: Nutiva O’Coconut

Nutiva, a brand of coconut, chia, hemp and red palm organic superfoods, recently launched bite-sized snacks called O’CoconutTM. Because I love coconut, I gratefully accepted a free sample to review for this site.

They arrived while I was on vacation, so I’m not sure how long they sat at my front door, but when I opened the package, everything looked fine … just slightly flattened.

What I liked about O’Coconut:
These snacks are made from organic, fair trade coconut and have only 60 calories per snack. They are lightly sweet, so they don’t overpower your palate.

I was sent samples of both the Classic and Hemp & Chia snacks. The classic was just that — it tasted like a less-sweet macaroon. The Hemp & Chia is where the flavor got interesting. The press material described the flavor as “nutty” — but my experience was closer to blue cheese.

I know, weird, huh? I checked the ingredients … nothing in there that should taste like cheese, blue or otherwise. So take that comment with a grain of salt.

I enjoyed both of them and was happy they sent be two of each!

What I didn’t like about O’Coconut:
They’re so small! They truly are bite sized! I wonder if they’d consider making a larger, say 100-calorie, version?

My recommendation:
I enjoyed them. They both had a slightly unconventional flavor that I appreciated. I also like that they are made with organic ingredients, which is important for many consumers, and that the coconut is fair trade, which means that the coconut is grown sustainably with an eye toward being better stewards of the land. Fair trade also means that standards are in place to protect human rights and deal fairly with workers and their families. All good in my book.

So, yes, I’d recommend these handy little snacks. You can find them at Whole Foods Market locations, as well as at Nutiva.com and Amazon.com.
