Koo Koo for Coconuts!

  1. Mmmmm….Ya know if you’re on the west coast, there are many “odd” places you can find coconut water in the grocery stores that aren’t like the “big fancy new-fangled” ones you pictured above! In the Hispanic food isle there are brands like “Goya” or “El Mexicano” selling “Coconut juice with pulp” for around $.69 for a 10.5 fl oz can or $1.09 for 17.6 fl oz. (plus CRV of course). Another decent one is “Faraon” brand coconut “juice” with pulp (Agua de coco con pulpa). That one will set you back about $.99 for 16.9 fl oz. I also look on the Asian food isles and I can find it mixed among the coconut milk. So, if you get tired of almost $5 a pop, looking on the ethnic isles and you can get a much better deal … That being said, NOTHING beats drinking right out of the shell!! I had my first Thambily last September from a Colombo street vendor and, let me tell you, I cant wait for my next trip just to have it again! 😀 Thanks so much for the great pics and videos – Just love it!

    1. Thanks for the suggestion. I know those cheaper brands but they use metabisulfate as as a preservative, which these more expensive brands don’t use. The coconut water does need preservatives because you can keep it for a few days.
