Coco Rico, a Suave Soda from Puerto Rico (and Oakland)

We don't understand Coco Rico's relative elusiveness in the Bay Area, given that the Puerto Rican export is bottled for the States right here in Oakland and not somewhere on the East Coast. Coconut water might be a more California-friendly treat, but when you just can't shake that cane sugar and corn syrup craving, this lightly flavored coconut soda really hits the spot. It's not exactly healthy, but it tastes like it could be. We've also found it to be a delicious liquid to toss into roasting root vegetables or a marinade. Stumble upon it in tiny corner stores, order online at Amazon, or find it at 99 Ranch supermarkets.
