Who knew you could get offended by someone not liking coconut water?!  Wow. You learn something new every day, I guess!

@WannaBeeMrsB:  The thought of poutine used to gross me out.  Until I actually tried it of course!

@joya_aspera:  While I don’t think it is ill-intentioned, I totally understand where you are coming from. I was born and raised outside the United States in a country where food is closely related to family and love and culture and it’s just SO different how people find something offensive there that they wouldn’t in the U.S. I just had a discussion about this with a fellow social psychologist – fascinating to think of what food represents and how it’s perceived between cultures!

OP- are you sure it wasn’t just the brand of Coconut water? There is only ONE brand that I really like, it comes in a tall can that is blueish… I tried some in a bottle after that and it was nowhere near the same taste.

Coconut water is bomb. Also a strong brew of Kombucha, or 50/50 ACV/H2O. These things are good for the bod.

I loved Kimchi until I lived in Seoul. Had my fill, I tell you what. Kimchi Jigae for life though.

@rusticbee2014:  Was it this kind?

I bought a can of this on a whim at Walgreens the other day and while I wasn’t sure if I liked it with the first few sips, it had definitely grown on me by the end of the can!

Prepackaged coconut water is gross.  On the other hand, I tried coconut water fresh from a coconut, and it was delicious!

Whoa, whoa. I LOVE coconut water. I think it’s so refreshing and delicious! I wish I could find it in gallons.
I love the ones with the chunks too.
Coconut milk is disgusting to drink of course.

I hate koolaid though, any fake fruit flavors actually. Hate punch, capri suns, etc.

@Omgbunnies:  Your post had me LOLing.  I haven’t tried Coconut Water yet and I’ve heard its also good.  I might reconsider now.  I tried Greek Yogurt a few months ago because I heard that was good as well.  My reaction was basically like your post.  It tasted like the devil tried to make yogurt.  BLEEEEEEEECCCCCCKKKKKKK
