Beware--the image is of a pack of four, but you only get one box. This means you're paying a lot in postage and packing relative to the purchase.
Vita Coco Natural Coconut Water 1 Litre (Pack of 4&hellip by Vitacoco
No problem with vita coco itself, but I ordered two packs of 4 x 1litre and (in a separate order) two packs of 6 x 0.5 litre. In both cases, and with two different types of plastic opening, one of the lids had got knocked in transit, with the result that I had an empty packet and a very wet box. It's really not worth having it sent by post in the UK. The difference in cost from the supermarket is minimal and it's more than eaten up by the lost items.

2.0 out of 5 stars a clunky read, 22 Mar 2014
I know it's supposed to be a classic, and the story itself is striking in that it's not quite what you expect--it's worth reading for that. But I found the writing clunky which surprised me. It's a short story, so one would not expect it to read like a novel, but I've read many short stories that caught a mood much better than this did.
