Coconut Water?

Does anyone know where I can find coconut water at a reasonable price (in Zurich)? I have found it at the Jemoli, but it is 4.50 per drink, INSANE. It has recently become popular as a healthy after sports drink (high in natural electrolytes) in the US, and is about $1.50 per drink.

Re: Coconut Water?

I've bought some from Müller Reformhaus in Rennweg - they have a few varieties - can't remember the price though.

Re: Coconut Water?

You can find it in Thai or Asian grocery stores and Globus but most of the brands contain a bit of sugar. For about CHF2-3 per can.

Re: Coconut Water?

When my wife was pregnant she drank it by the boxfull, our local Getränke markt put it on stock for us (and others) can't remember the price (1.80 I think). See http://tel.search.ch/meilen/rainstrasse-4/urs-rauch at Meilen 8706. They also have Coopers beer for 2.50 bless their cottonpickinsoks!!
If that is too far ask your local Getränke store they can pretty much get anything for you if you ask nicely!!

Re: Coconut Water?

Most Tamils shops should have it too. Just be sure you don't accidentally get coconut milk.

Re: Coconut Water?

Anybody know where to buy Green coconut (young coconut) ? I tried indian/asian shops without any luck in Zurich.

I checked coconut water drinks and they only have 40% coconut water.

Could we get green coconut near the border ? (in germany or france)

Thanks in advance

Re: Coconut Water?

They sell it in "Ultimo Bacci" on Nordstrasse, just by Bahnhof Wipkingen. Bought it there the other week, but man it tastes weird... Good luck!

Try the Asian Superstores at HB and Oerlikon... They do the smooth and the bitsy ones. Oerlikon for sure, opposite platform 6 Airport bound, 2 mins walk over the road. I used to buy mine there.

Thank you EmmaZurich. Managed to grab some of those Dr. Antonio's FOL (Fluid of Life) !! They are 100% natural young coconut water with anti-oxident agents. And you are right..It does taste weird..more lemonish then sweetish CHF 4.20 for 500ml pack.

Store owner (Dominique) mentioned that I could order yougn coconuts from them too but depends upon import and availability (apparently they sold almost 100 in a day few weeks ago).

you are blessed for helping a craving pregnant women

Thanks very much

Re: Coconut Water?

Try the asian superstore LIANHUA in Berninaplatz. It is the biggest one in Zurich and they have even fresh coconuts.
