Bai’s Molokai Coconut is a five calorie (per serving) beverage that features key ingredients including coconut water, organic coffeefruit, stevia, white tea extract, and salt. The flavor is quite good, with a coconut flavor that definitely benefits from the inclusion of coconut water (as opposed to it being exclusively from added flavorings). The stevia and erythritol do a nice job of sweetening the beverage without much in the way of aftertaste or caloric content. However, the product’s antioxidant focus and use of coffeefruit (which, as the label notes, doesn’t taste like coffee) is definitely the most complicated part of what the product is selling. Fortunately, the flavor and low calorie formulation should be an easy sell. Visually, we’re fond of what they’ve created just the same way we are fond of the Bai branding and design since they made the move into plastic. It is a nice-looking product that catches the eye, with a label that is nicely organized and makes good use of white space. If there’s anything we’d change it would be in adding the words “coconut water” on the front of the label. Overall, Bai continues to impress us with their low-calorie formulations, and Molokai Coconut is no exception.
