Coconut Water Finds A Home In The Beverage Market
In Fred Heatherton’s novelty song, “I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts,” the composer depicts a showman prodding people to play a game involving coconuts in order to make him rich. Although in the playful song coconuts are used to deceive consumers, today, coconuts — or more aptly coconut water — is more commonly perceived as a healthy complement for consumers.
“[Coconut water] is viewed as a healthy product,” says Jonas Feliciano, beverage analyst with Chicago-based Euromonitor International. “It’s viewed as a natural product, so consumers are flocking to it based on those benefits.”
Noting that Euromonitor tracks coconut water as part of the fruit and vegetable juice categories, Feliciano says that the top three brands — Vita Coco, New York; Zico, El Segundo, Calif.; and O.N.E. Coconut Water, Los Angeles — experienced 100 percent growth from 2011 to 2012 compared with a 3 percent decline for 100-percent juice during that same time period.

A Chill Settles Over The Coffee Scene
Ever since canned and bottled coffees flooded the United States 15 years or so ago, there’s been a steady increase in consumption as well as innovation. These days, ready-to-drink coffee is an almost billion-dollar bonanza — sales were $944 million for the previous 12 months as of July, according to market research firm SymphonyIRI Group — with canned and bottled coffees targeting most every taste and lifestyle.
We tasted 10 canned and bottled coffees from the dozens available, some newcomers as well as the granddaddy of canned coffee, UCC Coffee with Milk from Japan. Half had milk (or a milk product); the remainder included chocolate. Some were amped up with vitamins, some with green tea. We found them at supermarkets, convenience stores and an Asian market.
