    What is it with coconut water? Jewel has at least one freebie, and usually two every week through their mymixx program. I don't often take advantage of the freebies, because they are usually things that are not very healthy. It seems like at least once a month, they give away a free carton of coconut water. I got a carton of it a few months ago only because it was free. It is still sitting in my fridge. I tried to give it away a few times, and nobody wanted it. Is this stuff any good? I might bring it to the picnic to see if anybody wants it. Thanks, Nancy

    on hot summer days after being outdoors and doing heavy duty work/sports, I drink coconut water but it isn't a regular beverage for me. Mrs Willie uses it daily in her morning smoothies.

    While vacationing in the Caribbean/Mexico/SE Asia, I've had many a coconut water.
    I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be.

    In the mid 70's when I was sailing through the south pacific without any refrigeration, when we came across someone willing to give us cool coconut water, it was heaven on earth.

    Actually getting coconut water from fresh coconuts is something of a challenge. It requires machetes and ice picks and a great deal of effort.

    No longer true! It's not often I laugh out loud in the produce section at Jewel, but I couldn't help myself when I saw these pop-top coconuts.

    Only $4.99 each.

    I'm very curious as to how these pop-tops work.

    I like the kind of cocoanut water you buy in the cocoanut for less than a buck at roadside stands in the Caribbean and elsewhere. The stuff in bottles and cans tastes different, less delicious, kind of like the difference between fresh pulque and canned pulque.

    I imagine it would taste like the real thing. The shelf life is probably shorter though, with a hole drilled through the shell (I think the pop-top simply acts as a removable plug; or maybe the hole doesn't go all the way through?). It could be amusing to take one of these into a meeting instead of a cup of coffee or bottle of water, casually pop it open, and sip away.

    For those who haven't watched the Fruit Logistica Innovation Awards video, the vending machine is called Automato. They should've gotten a prize for the name alone.
