La Obsession: La Croix Coconut

I'm far more excited about this sparkling beverage than any other thing I'm sipping on this week, so in lieu of Wine of the Week, I bring to you my newest find: La Croix Coconut!


When I was working in the corporate land of cubicles and event planning, I went through a phase where I drank a Diet Coke every day. I actually think that I started drinking Diet Coke in college which, as I think about it, totally perplexes me because growing up, we never had soda in our house. Maybe special movie and popcorn nights or the occasional root beer float or Boston cooler treat but NEVER, EVER on a regular basis. Alas, I somehow developed a love for a crisp Diet Coke (preferably from a can or a fountain). The 3pm D.C. break was a short lived phase. I'm no longer drinking a Diet Coke a day and I'm pretty much convinced that diet soda, or any soda really, is one of the very worst things you can put into your body and the artificial sweetener is the worst of all! (Google it).

I drink water all day long but sometimes, that bubbly goodness is the perfect pick me up in the afternoon. Enter: La Croix! I love the mixed berry and the grapefruit, but I'm LOVING coconut right now and it's perfect for summer! I've fallen in love hard and fast for this stuff. Add in a fresh wedge of lime and you have a little bit of tropical fizz to enjoy on an afternoon break. La Croix contains no artificial sweeteners and no sodium so it's pretty much guilt-free. With bikini season shortly approaching, I would say this is a major WIN.

Check your local market for all of the yummy and refreshing La Croix flavors. I purchased a 12-pack for $4.99

  1. I recently got addicted to La Croix water also. Being pregnant I'm suppose to drink gallons of water a day (so it seems) and that got old really fast. The La Croix sparkling waters have made it so much easier. I haven't had the coconut one yet but I think you might have convinced me to give it a try. My favorite so far has been the grapefruit, or pamplemousse as they call it. It might be my favorite based on that name alone :)

  2. I love coconut! I hope I can find it at a local grocery store. In the town where I live there aren't very many markets to choose from! Thanks for the great find!

  3. I love the grapefruit! Must try coconut. After growing up in a no soda house, I too got addicted to soda in college and early in my working life. It's bad stuff. I've quit drinking it again but love some bubbly water!

    1. Kelli- I'm sure Harris Teeter carries it. If I still lived in Charlotte, I would hand deliver it to you :) Hope you and your sweet family are well!

  5. Oh I will have to try this stuff now that you've recommended it! I will have to go look at my store on the bottom shelves like you said. Thanks for the heads up on this new gem.

  6. My wife loves them - and she gets them (or I get them for her) at Target.

  7. If you are allergic to any foods, especially fruit, I would be careful with La Croix water. Since the only ingredients listed on the can are carbonated water and "natural flavor," there is no way to know what is actually in it. A few days ago, I drank a few sips of a cran-raspberry flavored La Croix, and then I realized it tasted like strawberry, to which I am allergic. I had a reaction within a few minutes. When I tried to call the number on the back of the can to find out if they use strawberry in the cran-raspberry, I got an answering machine. It was very frustrating, and is potentially very dangerous to those who have more severe allergies than me.
