I couldn't believe it when I read this thread as I've been meaning to write a post to see if I my latest fad of coconut water has reached PP yet?

Would be great if it has as I make a lot of smoothies and prefer them made with coconut water rather than milk

I'm sure Tiggy wouldn't mind heading to BioBotiga again to find 'agua de coco'

Or you drop them an email before you head over next...

Okay then, so what is it with this coconut milk? What are the benefits? Is it the new elixir of life?!
Maybe I should partake of it instead of alcohol!

Ha ha you jest but your not far wrong. I'm talking about coconut water which has far less fat than the milk. In fact one of it's many health benefits is that it replaces the electrolytes and minerals lost after a heavy night in the tiles!

It's good for lots of other things too ( if you believe the hype) and I of course have never had to drink it for the benefit of the above

Makes you wonder why all the shops in PP aren't selling it!!

Me? I have always found that the best cure for a "Night on the tiles", is another night on the tiles!!

Question Supermarket Opening Hours

Hi all

Can anyone let me know what time the Eroski Supermarket is open to, the one a few metres up from the roundabout at the marina??

Also, is it the cheapest?

Fresh veg and salad is probably best from Wednesday market, unless you guys know different?

Thanks
