Good spot. Lowest I've seen this.

Does this have the oled screen?

Tried this the other day because I thought I was missing out on something, turns out I wasn't

laugh all you want.... 40yr ago a drink from a coconut was a luxury.... as was tripe and sheep's brains.... nowts changed, coconut watter (say it) tastes the same and tripe is as good as ever

Where would you buy a tripe from?

It's national, got 2 from my local ASDA last night.

Ooop Naarthh.

tastes like old people leakage smells.

why is this so expensive anyway ?

wow

The health benefits of this are immense
The taste on the other hand is far from immense

They shoot them in the Shetland Islands (their last known habitat) and then row their still warm bodies across the ocean to the mainland.

Brilliant, time to stock up! Thank you, OP! x

It's 100% coconut water. Crack coconuts until you have 1L of juice to drink and then you'll see why it's so expensive

my grandad used to eat tripe, I used to call it trash by mistake, revolting looking stuff!

I totally agree, yet a hyped up drink that tastes of poo.

It's not for everyone that's for sure. Healthy, tasty (for me) and is an amazing thirst quencher on a hot day.

Wouldn't recommend Vita Coco though, the lesser known brands are cheaper especially when bought in bulk.

It's healthy, it's supposed to taste of poo.

I always have coconut water handy for my hangovers.

That's rubbish. It's expensive because it has become trendy. Rubicon used to do pure coconut water for years. It was about 30p-40p for 300ml. They were doing it until about 3 years ago at that price. They stopped because it wasn't popular. A shame, because I thought it was lovely. Now all of a sudden it has become trendy, and the price is beyond ridiculous.

flake99, I have to disagree i have also drank several different rubican drinks over the years since the the 80's and i cannot remember any that were 100% pure juice, they always contained water.....

I'll eat my own head if you can prove this coconut juice was 100% coconut water. Rubicon are notorious for packing every one of their drinks with sugar, water, stabilisers and flavourings...

It was actually. It was the only thing in their range that wasn't diluted with water. A friend of mine who works for them said they are reintroducing coconut water in view of the current fashion. Sadly the new product will be diluted!

Here is the original rubicon one from web archive:
Your text here

It wasn't diluted. They did vary it a little over the years, at one point adding a very small amount of sugar to match UK tastes. But it was never diluted with water or any other juice. The point is, as I was saying yesterday, if an undiluted coconut water could be sold for 30-40p a few years ago, it is largely down to trend that its price has quadrupled in the last 5 years. You could often buy 4 for a £1 at various Asian grocery stores. So that's £1 a litre compared to the ridiculous prices now that it's the 'in thing'.

So can anybody confirm that it's nationwide pls?

That and supply and demand. It's not just cashing in on a health trend, it's raising prices in response to increased demand. Coconuts in the supermarket also seem to cost about 50% more than they did a few years ago. Wonder what the world coconut and coconut water supply has looked like.

What are the health benefits? I read it can be used as saline. Coconut itself it meant to help with fat burn. I guess it has good mineral content? But yeah, spending £3 for a litre of mineral rich liquid that may help with weight loss seems quite steep, but £1.75 is perfectly reasonable considering the price of juice (which generally is bad for you).

Btw, rubicon is a much cheaper brand than other brands, seen more in asian convenience stores no?
I imagine the equivalent in another brand could easily be twice the price.
60 pence for 250m. That's £2.40 for 1 litre.
Add a bit of inflation, and you're looking at the Vita Coco price. A litre of branded juice from concentrate is easily £1, and that's just syrup with some water added.

The thing about a lot of suddenly popular health foods, is that the hype and cost far exceed the actual benefits. Nobody gets really excited about brocolli, but it's cheap and extremely good for you. Eating brocolli will do a lot more good than drinking coconut water.

I'm sure coconut water is good for you, but it's not really going to do anything.

How about 'broccoli' though (_;)

Broccoli seems to have gone down in price recently, along with tomatoes Perhaps seasonal or bumper crop.

Ahh right, picking up on my incorrect spelling. Funny stuff heh
