Nature's solution to the 12-ouncer is the coconut. Until the Coconut Tap came along, however, we had to use all manner of inappropriate accoutrements to get fresh coconut water. Being chocked full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and omega-6's, the stuff is about as good a liquid as you can put in your body, so it's no surprise that tropical inhabitants can be seen using anything from a can opener to a cordless drill to open these little babies, with probably the most popular tool being a machete. Hardly safe. With the Coconut Tap, however, you simply punch a hole in a young, green coconut and stick a straw in for a quick pick me up. Use the Coconut Opener's safety cap to get rid of the plug from the hole you just punched and you're good to go.
We were skeptical about this product at first, but it didn't take long to win us over on a hot summer day in Florida. If you're lucky enough to live in a place with a high coconut-to-human ratio, we suggest you give this tool a go. For about $15 you can save yourself a lot of embarrassment hacking away at a coconut with a machete, and maybe even a digit. Pack this in your check luggage for your next jaunt to a tropical island.
Straw and funnel for adding booze not included.
