Mogu Mogu, a new drinking experience is here! But what are they?
The boring fruit juice that you currently drink will be thrown aside and replaced by a fun, exciting, chewable beverage.
Yes, you heard that right – chewable!
“How can a drink be chewable?” I hear you ask.
The creators of Mogu Mogu drinks have succeeded. They have added nata de coco chunks to 17 different flavours, to create ‘A new drinking experience’.
Here at The Kandy King, we love this drink. In fact, we stock 11 of the best-selling flavours for our wholesale customers here in the UK.
We like it that much, we thought it would be a good idea to find out a little bit more about this exciting product.
So we have created this comprehensive guide. This should give you all the information needed to understand what Mogu Mogu is.
We also find out where it came from and if it’s healthy, as well as where you can buy it in the UK.
What are Mogu Mogu drinks?
Mogu Mogu drinks are a range of refreshing fruit juices. They combine delicious flavours of real fruit, with added chunks of chewy nata de coco.
These chewy, jelly-like cubes, made from coconut make this drink a unique refreshment. With every sip of juice, you get a burst of chewy goodness.
Supplied in 320ml bottles, they are great for taking with you on the go or adding to lunch boxes or school bags.
For wholesale customers in the UK, who buy drinks in bulk, they are supplied in packs of 6. These fit perfectly on shop shelves and fridges instore.
Where are they from?
They originated from Thailand and were first produced in 2001. The family business manager, Mr Adisak Ruckariyaphong was the man behind the idea.
The idea of adding coconut jelly chunks, made the world go crazy once the product launched.
Since then their products became an international sensation. They are now known around the world, with stockists in more than 60 countries!
The uniqueness of this chewy yet refreshing drink is both interesting and fascinating. It’s not hard to see why this drink is continuing to go from strength to strength.
Is Mogu Mogu healthy?
In general, yes, Mogu Mogu is a healthy drink. It’s a real fruit juice which means it contains vitamins that are found on the fruits of the flavour you choose.
They are a great source of vitamin C and contain zero fat. Being low in cholesterol and it’s a great choice for health-conscious individuals.
Like most food and drink, it should be consumed alongside a balanced diet.
One thing to be mindful of is that due to the nata de coco that’s added to the liquid. It is high in dietary fibre as this is coconut jelly.
With all that said, a 320ml bottle contains around 160 calories, 38.4 grams of carbohydrates and 0.352 grams of salt. Below is a handy nutritional table listing for reference.

What do they put in Mogu Mogu?
Nata de Coco is the added ingredient in the Mogu Mogu range of drinks. Produced by the fermentation of coconut water, it is also referred to as coconut gel.
It’s farmed in small farms in areas of Thailand, as well as the Philippines and traditionally sold to local customers in jars.
This translucent jelly is usually referred to as ‘healthy’ due to it having fewer calories compared to other desserts of this type.
Recently it’s become popular with another oriental drink, Bubble Tea. This is another drink that is rising to fame in the UK and this blog post from Twinings explains exactly what it is – ‘What is Bubble Tea?’.
