I was on the bus the other day and saw the above article. I’ve seen a few things lately saying how amazing coconut water was, so I thought that next time I saw some, I’d buy it and try it. All in the interests of you, dear readers. I got off the bus, into Waitrose and look what I saw:
So here’s the collection of flavours in Waitrose. Can you make out the prices? Ã‚Â£1.59 for this tiny little carton! But I thought, Well, it might still do some good, and if it does, then the price is justified. Yeah, call it girl diet crazy.
I got back to the office and stared at the carton for a bit. I went for the coconut water with pineapple, because I thought that at least that wouldn’t be so gross as normal coconut water.
OK, so this is about as far as I could manage. I took a few sips, and nearly spat it out! It had a weird taste, like metallically.
I ignored it for a while on my desk and it started to separate. Eugh.
So, er, my official verdict on coconut water? Just drink normal water. I never learnt my lesson from when I begged my mum when I was younger for a coconut. Coconuts are gross – unless they’re in the form of a Bounty.
Oh, and the title is from my favourite character in Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends. I spent a lot of time in the summer between my gap year and final year of uni watching crappy TV and this was one of my favourites.
