        Most major supermarkets carry it. Metro, Longo's etc..

    1. Just bough Trader Joe's new coconut water and it was incredible.

        Hi flowergirl, where do you buy Trader Joe's coconut water in Toronto?

      2. highly recommend "taste nirvana" comes in a green bottle or can, with or without pulp. easiest to find at natural foods stores. whole foods carries it as well i believe

          Hi rmarisco, did you buy it at Noah's?

            we're in northern california, it's readily available. maybe i didn't notice - where are you looking?

        2. Believe it or not, dollarama has my vote. Pure 100% coconut water, no sugar, pulp, and not from concentrate. Also it comes in tall cans for a dollar!! You get 3 times the amount than any of those vita coco, one or any expensive tetra pack rip off brand which they sell for $3 at grocery stores. Coconut water is so expensive so I only buy from dollarama. It's usually sold out at every location, when I see stock I fill the trunk, always on hand.

            Just tried this - thought it was a little odd tasting.

          2. My favourite is the Grace brand. Though harder to find the one without the pulp.

              Thanks jlunar, I saw some at Metro.

                Mine too - not sure it's pure but we're addicted to it. I've tried a few other brands and they don't seem to come close.

                ps, if you don't like the pulp, why not just take a second to filter it?

                1. re: justxpete

                  I'm usually out when the craving hits, vs at home, so it's never occurred to me to filter! Good tip.

                  Read the label carefully though. Many Grace varieties have sugar added. If you don't see 'No Sugar Added' on the front label, it will probably have Sugar as one of the ingredients on the back.
