Fresh Young Coconut 3 for 2 at £2 per coconut @ Tesco

17
Found 16th Jul 2015
Was at Tesco Beckton where I picked them up. Lots of sweet water in each coconuts. And the flesh is vey good taste.

They are £2 each with the the 2F3 offer they are 3 for £4 making it £1.33 each great bargain.

See how they take the full flesh with water out of the shell in this video

I don't know other branches but at Beckton do still have them but unfortunately last night(both Jul) I went there there was only one and the F&V assistant said they only come in occasionally so it's luck when you can get them.
Update 25/7/15 I was in Lakeside Tesco where although being a Tesco Extra they don't do these coconut, well where the hell elsewhere they do they have them. As far as Beckton is concerned they displayed OOS label.... oh well

Are they sold unshelled in Tesco's Beckton store ?

Good grief, I was only paying 20 baht (40p) for these in Thailand a few months ago

Thx!

The shell and the husk is still attached the green outer layer is sliced off. All you have to do is make a hole in the top to drink the water, to get the gel out make a larger hole. I use the heavy end handle of a thick eating knife.

Good grief and I paid £2.50 each at the Just V- Show and I though I saved a fortune..... Guess what these are from Thailand so Tesco is making a fortune even at £1.33 each.... They are re-couping their losses early this year, and we are there to help them out....

Wow tstard if ur seeing this post from Beckon you don't need no Tesco's and sure you can get them cheaper then London's Beckton.
BTW I'm sure you can find enough exotics in San Fransisco lots of hot weather and lovely beaches,
enjoy your stay in Beckon

Great find, dalipsinghno I never knew tesco sold these! I always drive to See Woo in Greenwich to grab some at 99p, so it's pretty similar in price! Unfortunately I don't have any large tescos near me

They introduce new products from time to time.
But
Thanks for letting me know they are 99p in Woo. I pass the area sometimes so will take a look in next time I go there.

hardly, do you know how much it costs to ship or fly a container load to the UK? and then transport them nationwide, then have people put them on to shelves etc the profit you're taking about is pence in the pound, so hardly a fortune.

tstard it was just a fun comment, I know indianajon intended to say Beckton but a simple letter being missed out spelled a place which happens to be hot warm city so I just picked on it and just related it to the post topic. In no way it was intended to be Mal.
I want indianajon to put his/her thought how it was taken fun or some one who is Badman...
