+1: Coconut Water

No introduction necessary for this one! Hair and skincare companies may now be incorporating coconut water into their products but the hydrating properties of coconut water have been powering us Trinis up for as long as anyone can remember. Around Queens Park Savannah, you will see decorative carts with little old men selling the drink. Some are actually second-generation vendors who took over the trade from their fathers and, if you take a minute, you could get some serious history about the Savannah and town life from long ago.

Tip: After you’ve drunk the water, don’t throw away the nut! Have the vendor cut it, so you can get at the jelly.
