Blue Monkeys most complex flavor is this one, Pure Coconut Water + Acai & Pomegranate (even the name is complex
). Made with pure coconut water (80 percent), pomegranate juice, acai juice, agave nectar, citric acid, and ascorbic acid, the product delivers balanced notes of tart, sweet, and salty. It's rather impressive, especially since pomegranate is something that could definitely overpower coconut water. Plus, they've kept the grit often found in acai juice, which is definitely a welcome sign of quality. Blue Monkey has made a great start with the packaging, especially in choosing a more traditional looking (and resealable) bottle than some of the other products on the market today. However, the volume of text is overwhelming and there are little nuances that could be addressed (e.g. the prominent 100 percent natural badge). Ultimately, we think that less is more is definitely true with a product like this. Cleaning things up just a bit would make this an even better product.
