Boasting over 100 years of trusted excellence, the journey of Silvermill Group is one of resilience and inspiration; one that has provided a plethora of premium products to the local and international market. One such ground-breaking product by Silvermill is KiCO King Coconut water with Green Coconut Water. King Coconut, colloquially known as “thambili” is a favourite in Sri Lanka, with its hydrating, refreshing taste being the perfect way to beat the heat of the scorching tropical climate. It contains electrolytes that are essential for the body’s functioning and is free of fat and cholesterol. King coconut water and green coconut water have a multitude of health benefits including preventing kidney stones, promoting healthier skin, flushing out toxins, reducing blood sugar levels in diabetics and antioxidant activity. KiCO is filled with all the goodness of natural “thambili” and green coconut, making it your ideal thirst quencher.
A factor that makes KiCO so convenient is that it isn’t always possible to find “thambili” of good quality, not to mention that cutting the fruit open and disposing of it after drinking can be quite a hassle. KiCO, on the other hand, is conveniently available in a ready-to-drink Tetra pack. The high-end Tetra technology utilised by Silvermill ensures that once sealed, nothing may enter or leave the packaging, allowing the drink to be perfectly protected. Its compact and easy to carry packaging allows you to take it absolutely anywhere; whether it be at home, at work, at school or at the gym. All you need to do is pop a pack in your bag before you head out and rest assured that a chilled KiCO will give you the revitalising, tasty boost required for your busy lifestyle. The drink also contains Vitamin C, which is essential towards maintaining good health.
KiCO can also be considered a healthy alternative to fizzy drinks. If you’re a parent who constantly worries about how unhealthy your son’s or daughter’s favourite fizzy drink is, here’s your solution! Simply introduce them to KiCO and watch them fall under its yummy, yet incredibly healthy spell.
Silvermill sent us a few of their KiCO packs as an invitation to experience its taste and this is what we thought.
The Tetra packs arrived with a very sweet note. Acknowledging the instructions on the pack that the drink is best served chilled, we made sure to pop them all in the refrigerator before we tried it out.
We’re glad to say that we absolutely loved it! The drink tasted as if it was made up of hand-picked, premium quality king coconuts and green coconuts. Consistently capturing the lovely tropical flavour of “thambili” in every pack, KiCO had the traditionally sweet taste of “thambili” with the same refreshing after-effects. We tried out this product on a sweltering hot day and we can assure you that it provided us with a much-needed source of cool, hydrating refreshment. Since KiCO is so pure and healthy, with no added colours, we were assured that we were drinking something that was good for our bodies and were spared the guilt-trip we experience when having a fizzy drink. In short, we loved this product! Our fridge is now stocked-up with KiCO to help us get through power cuts, study sessions and gym workouts, and we’d advise you to do the same!
KiCO is available at all leading supermarkets and large grocery stores islandwide. As of July 2022, the product is priced at just LKR 95 per 200ml Tetra pack.
