If you are like me, a lover of young Thai coconuts, then you are probably having some withdrawal as of late. Due to the political unrest in Thailand, getting coconuts has been next to impossible.

Every juice bar, supermarket or store I go to in New York City tells me the same thing: they can’t get any and don’t know when they’ll be back on the shelves.

The only thing that I have seen is a brand of water called Exotic Superfoods Organic Young Thai Coconut Water. It is shipped frozen in a plastic bottle and gets defrosted once in the U.S.

In Manhattan, both Integral Market on 13th Street and One Lucky Duck in Gramercy have been carrying this product over the last few days. For how much longer they’ll have supply is anyone’s guess.

Young Thai coconuts have been a staple in my diet for many years.  I love cracking one open and drinking the water. It is supposedly the best post-workout drink available because of its electrolytes. The coconuts are also great for breakfast smoothies (coconut milk) and raw ice cream (coconut meat).

Despite the fact that New Yorkers love Young Thai coconuts and we miss having them, I hope things get squared away in Thailand soon. Lives have been lost and that matters a lot more to me than not having one of my favorite fruits.
