After seeing my review of ZICO coconut water on the Bike Diva site, I was contacted by a marketing rep for O.N.E. Natural Experience to see if I was interested in sampling their products. I received a case full of O.N.E. coconut water and 3 flavors of their all-natural juice.
I had a chance to taste the following items:
- 100% natural coconut water
- coffee berry juice
- cashew juice
- Amazon acai
Bike Diva's Review
The coconut juice is refreshing enough to be enjoyed straight out of the box, after being well chilled in the refrigerator. The three juices are all sweetened with organic cane juice. I found all the juices to be a bit too sweet for my taste, so I mixed them with a bit of sparkling water. Add a few ice cubes to a large glass, pour in around 3/4 of a cup of the juice, then top off with around 1/4 to 1/3 cup of sparkling water. My favorite flavor was the Amazon acai, I also liked the taste of the coffee berry juice. Although I didn't really care for the flavor of the cashew juice, my husband found it quite enjoyable.
Each juice comes packaged in a single serving 1.1ounce Tetra box. Tetra Pak carton packages are primarily made from paper, a renewable resource. Visit the Tetra Pak website for further information on their green packaging products: www.tetrapakusa.com.

Cashew juice is high in Vitamin C and may help to calm the stomach, soothe the throat and promote healthy skin.
Each container of coffee berry juice contains 107 calories. The ingredients include acerola puree (Amazon cherry), strawberry puree, whole coffee berry, natural flavors, organic evaporated cane juice and citric acid. Coffee berry juice is obtained from the ripe coffee berry. Coffee berry is an antioxidant, naturally caffeinated fresh juice. It contains about as much caffeine as a cup of green tea.
Each container of Amazon Acai, which is also flavored with Amazon cherry, contains 157 calories.

For each full pallet of the coconut water that is sold, a family in Brazil is able to build a cistern to get their own clean water.
Thank You I would like to thank O.N.E. Natural Experience for sending out the product samples. I will definitely be looking for O.N.E. Amazon Acai juice the next time I am at Albertson's or Whole Foods. Visit the O.N.E. website to see where the products are available in your area.
