@Omgbunnies:  “It tastes like it’s flavored with Splenda and the devil.” ahahaha this is great! I tried coconut water once (with pineapple flavoring) when I was…ahem…under the weather…because it’s supposed to help. It was sickeningly sweet and made me even more nauseous!

Also, I looove kool bursts! We called them kid’s beer when we were little because of the shape of the bottles haha. Ok, I’m 25 and still call it kid’s beer 😛

Actual fresh coconut water straight from a coconut is the most amazing tasting thing ever. The coconut water they sell in the store tastes nothing like it. I don’t know what they do to it to ruin it, but they do.

@michiru4ever:  THIS!

It’s also super nuticious and fuul with electrolites. It’s nature’s gatorade.

I love it. Straight from the coconut, and very cold, please.

In the summer when it’s like 111F outside, there’s nothing better. Yum!

@Omgbunnies:  The same thing (but not quite as amusing) happened to me a few months back. I heard so many things about how great coconut water is. It tastes NOTHING like coconut, and I actually thought something was wrong with it (like it had expired or something and gone off… but it hadn’t). I just don’t get it.

Why is this so trendy? Is it just like real coconut water (that you find inside coconuts?) I don’t get it.

I love coconut anything…so, when I was visiting my friend and had an awful headache, she told me to take some…I love everything really cold so I filled a glass with ice cubes and then filled up the glass….I hated it too. And I felt terrible wasting her coconut water, bc I know it’s expensive. I thought it tasted like dirty water or something…I was so surprised that I didn’t like it. I couldn’t even bring myself to sip it.

This made me LOL. I actually like coconut water, but I can see why other’s don’t like it and I didn’t even like it the first time I tasted it. Recently I was drinking some and my friend wanted to try it, and after taking a sip said, “That is so disgusting.” I just laughed. To each their own!

I’ve only tried the bottled stuff, but it was gross. Tasted like dirt. Not sure if I’d like the fresh kind, as I don’t like coconut anything, but I’d probably give it a shot.

LOL @ personal opinions being “insulting.” I think pu-ehr tea is nasty, too, but that doesn’t mean that I hate Chinese people (or anyone who drinks it).

And yes, Splenda (and all fake sugars) is the devil.

@vorpalette:  Splenda (and all fake sugars) is the devil.

ITA! I refuse that stuff. Give me good old grandulated, brown sugar, raw sugar or honey. But that packet stuff no thank you.

@joya_aspera:  really? insulting because the OP doesnt like the taste of coconut water?! wow. lol Ill leave that one alone. Lost of people dislike certain foods and drinks. It’s insane to get offended at something like that.

FWIW I think it’s gross too. not my thing. : but hey if ya like it, have at it! 🙂

@Omgbunnies:  I liked the Gif’s 🙂  happy tuesday! btw I didn’t read the rest of this thread after page one….off to do that now.
