I find sweet snacks, or maybe they find me. This here was a real doozie. It was a coconut, a very mature one at that, with a lot of rich meat. The confusing part was that is seemed syrupy, but I watched the coconut lady open it up and introduce only sugar. I've eaten many coconuts in a number of different countries, but this one was different. The price added to the mystery as well. 40 or 50 Baht if I remember correctly.
This was very sweet and rich. It gave me both a headache and stomachache. For some this might sound like a recommendation, to others a warning. This was procured about 60 Km south of Songkhlaburi on the side of a very beautiful stretch of road. Happy hunting.
