I schooled in a country where you could get coconut water, fresh from the coconut itself any time you wanted, all you had to do was walk down to any of the several cariffo (round about) and you would find somebody selling different sizes. The maximum amount you could get back then was cent secant (150) which in Naira back then was equivalent to #50, Imagine how inexpensive this beneficial item was and O took it for granted.
The first time I found out the essence of the coconut water was through my big aunt, she had come for a visit and the first thing she bought when I picked her up at the border was coconut water in its husk, then she gave a lecture on how important it was for the body. This goes to show that coconut water might quench your taste and cleanse your palette but this doesn’t mean it doesn’t have nutritional benefits as well.
