Suja Elements “Tropicaloe” uses two very marketable and timely ingredients, coconut water and aloe vera, which the company has blended with pineapple, apple, lime and mint leaf. Suja labeled this product as a “coconut water beverage,” which is exactly how we’d describe it. The flavor is big on coconut water and lime, which go very nicely together. From there, you can taste a hint of the apple, pineapple, mint, and aloe. The drink also has a clean finish. Compared with some of the stronger-bodied flavors that make up the Suja Elements line, this one is more refreshing and gulpable. Plus, it can definitely hold its own with other coconut water drinks on the market today. On the outside, it very much fits the mold of the Elements line, with lime green being the accent color on its label. While it looks very polished and professional, the lack of any graphics definitely makes it slightly less appealing (and less obvious as to what it is) than the other coconut water brands that it competes with.
