Coconut Jelly

I was walking around Jonker Street in what I imagine to be the heat generated by a hundred angry suns, so I needed something refreshing. I spotted a coconut cart and thought to myself, "Hey! Coconuts are refreshing!" I walked over and found they were selling this coconut jelly snack. There's no sugar or anything added, just agar to turn the coconut water into a gelatin. This was the first time I've ever seen anything like this, and as a refreshing snack it's perfect. It's cold, it's delicious, and it's got pieces of coconut in it to remind you that it's a real food, and not just a bunch of chemicals being pitched by Bill Cosby. Some of you are too young to understand that reference and that makes me want to punch you in the face.
