Go buy some young coconuts and chop them open! I prefer to drill a hole and stick a straw in them. They're like $1 each here in HK, not sure how much they are over there. Any price would be worth it though, IMO.

Agreed. The flavour of fresh coconut juice is quite subtle, and I find that when packaged in cans it takes on a metallic taste.

The fresh coconuts are between $2-4 in Vancouver -- depending on the market. I tend to buy them in Chinatown b/c they're fresher than the ones at Capers, etc.

Young coconut juice is anything but "empty"

Juice directly from a fruit is not "empty". If calories are a concern, stick to berries. They are packed with nutrients and antioxidants compared to the calories they contain. Compared to things like pineapples and bananas, which are nutrition but contain loads of sugar.

why do the packaged north american ones taste so bad. even the frozen ones they serve at Vietnamese places taste somewhat similar to a real one... makes me wonder if these ppl have tasted a real coconut before lol

Read the ingredients to make sure they are 100% coconut water. A lot of them mix different shit into them as preservatives and stuff, but few don't.

Shoppers Drug Mart sells small cans of 100% Water for 89 cents.

i'll be honest i never actually read the labels... so some of these non-frozen ones actually taste like the real thing?

they taste different even if they're all 100% pure coconut water, because they're from different types and ages of coconuts.

the one i like the most is from vita coco but its like $3 for 500ml at walmart in the states (dont see it often here)

How did they get that perfect cut? I usually use a cleaver and it isn't nearly as elegant.

coconut juice from asian markets are very bad for you. most of them contain sodium nitrite as preservative. that chemical harms your digestive system and can cause colon cancer.
the only canned coconut juice i drink is blue monkey and i buy them at whole foods. you can also buy the fresh young coconut juice that is already chopped and ready to poke a straw and drink at whole foods. they are about $3.86 each but really good and you can eat the coconut meat as well.

This. The majority of the canned stuff has preservatives and junk, so always check the ingredients to make sure it's 100% coconut water. They are out there.

Actually, I noticed the new PriceSmart in Richmond in the Asian drinks side has tetra-paks of 100% coconut water for $2.99
