I am not exaggerating when I say that I loved the taste as soon as I tried it especially the raspberry passion fruit which is my favorite. All three flavors are very light tasting and I honestly don't even notice the coconut at all. Feel free to confirm with Emir but instead of drinking a glass or two of water at night while relaxing after the kids go to bed, now I almost always drink a bottle full of Cocogo. I know I don't drink enough during the day so I try to make it up at night. Now that I have been using the Cocogo as a recovery/hydration method at the end of the day, I can definitely tell a difference. My body definitely has been giving me all the signs that I have been staying better hydrated despite the fact that I've been running much longer distances than before and it's been getting hotter.
As for using Cocogo during my runs, it varies. Cocogo comes in easy-to-use little packets that are 37 Calories each. While drinking Cocogo on any length run will keep me hydrated with no problem, I need something more to fuel me (more Calories). I also have a thirst issue when I run long distances that I only feel satisfied by plain water which is the only reason I tend to not use Cocogo on super long runs. And it's not even that drinking Cocogo leaves me feeling thirsty or with a weird after-taste like most other sports drinks, it's just my weird thing. But even though I do not use it during lengthy runs, I still will hydrate right after with at least one bottle of Cocogo.
Aside from the fact that I like how Cocogo tastes and how it has helped me improve my overall hydration, I love that it is all natural ingredients.
Information from the Cocogo website regarding ingredients: Cocogo helps you hydrate more effectively with Mother Nature’s natural nutrients.
