Stay Hydrated with O.N.E. Coconut Water and Giveaway

by Nicole on February 15, 2013


I hadn’t ever tried coconut water before this post but I had heard about its great properties for health and nutrition.  I was excited to try it and got a package with O.N.E. plain coconut water as well as coconut water flavored with pineapple, guava and mango – yum!

O.N.E.’s story began in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2005 when MBA students Rodrigo Veloso and Eric Loudon developed a business plan to brand and launch a line of healthy, natural beverages (coconut water being the first) in the U.S. market. One year later, O.N.E. Coconut Water hit shelves in Southern California. It debuted at Whole Foods Markets in the Summer of 2006 to rave reviews and quickly became the #1 selling alternative beverage in all Southern California Whole Foods Markets. In just one year, O.N.E. established national distribution with the top natural/specialty distributors, a national sales brokerage network and 4,000 points-of-sale in the U.S. and Canada.

In 2009, O.N.E. grew to more than 30 employees as a result of the company’s first round of institutional investment funding and signing a distribution agreement with The Pepsi Beverage Company. An extension of its coconut water line was introduced with four new flavors called O.N.E. Coconut Water with a Splash, which immediately gained national distribution in Kroger stores and Whole Foods Market. Distribution exploded in 2011, with grocery stores, convenience stores, drugstores and online retailers across the country now carrying O.N.E. Coconut Water. In 2012, O.N.E. Coconut Water is planning to expand internationally to Europe, Canada, and Southeast Asia.

My favorite was the plain coconut water and the pineapple one.  They were both refreshing and the plain coconut water was less sweet than I thought it would be.  I love coconut but I think it’s possible to like coconut water without being a coconut lover.  I love that the O.N.E. Coconut Water is in a carton, it’s easy to transport and doesn’t take up as much room in the refrigerator.  I have been drinking this after I exercise and it makes me feel great!
