The Asian and Pacific Coconut Community has declared September 2 to be World Coconut Day each year. And make no mistake about it, coconuts are big business, so today’s focus is really an entirely commercial one—it’s all about promoting the coconut industry. But if you love coconut, and I know I do, you can celebrate it in your own way by consuming coconut in whatever form makes you happy. (For me, first choice is a piña colada; second choice is Almond Joy, because I always feel like a nut.)
