I’m actually not kidding when I say this is my favourite blog giveaway to date. With this incredibly long endless summer we seem to be having this year, C Coconut Water has been my go-to drink pretty much daily. (In fact, as I sit here typing, I am sipping away merrily). There are a lot of coconut waters on the market, but this one is easily my fave – it’s not artificially sweetened, it has no added sugar and it’s carbon neutral certified. It also just tastes healthy, which I love.

So imagine how exciting it would be to have a case sitting in your fridge right now that you can just access whenever you feel like it? I know.

Thanks to the lovely team at C Coconut Water, this dream is about to come true for one of you who will receive a case of C Coconut Water delivered straight to your doorstep (maybe even your fridge, if you ask the delivery guy nicely).

To enter, just leave a comment below answering the age old question:

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you take with you?

Be sure to leave a contact e-mail address. Giveaway closes at 5pm on the 5th April and is open to Australian residents only. Good luck! x

    YO SAM.

    Mel Tan here. I am a hypochondriac most days. Coconut water is meant to be good for sick people. So please look upon my post favourably.

    If I was stranded on a dessert island, I’d take:

    1. My tweezers. For tweezing. (And company – sort of like ‘Wilson’ in Castaway).
    2. A turban. Feelin’ exotic and lonely.
    3. A tape player with one tape with one song on it – George Michael’s ‘Careless Whisper’ on it. Essential sexy desert island listening.

    The ol’ island question…

    Three things.

    1. A choose your own adventure book with a million different endings

    2. My iPod with a magical I don’t die battery


    3. A hot man to make hot babies with!

    Just saying…

    Hey Sam,

    I’ve just lost my job And have a serious coconut water addiction. Please help me support my habit, as my centre link benefits don’t account for luxuries such as C coconut water.

    1. A ladder- handy for climbing coconut water trees and making shelter.
    2. A lighter- to make fires for heat and light.
    3. My mobile phone- cos I gotta check my facie account somehow and maybe check out SEEK.

    Hope I win :)

    So, this isn’t an entry, but Melissa’s answer is probably the best thing I’ve read all day. Also I had no idea you could get water from a coconut, what wonderful things I learn from your blog Miss Sam! x

  • Reply Monique March 27, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    My favourite coconut water is definitely C too – I have tried so many others and they just don’t taste as good as what good ole C does!

    If I was stranded on a desert island I would take:

    1. A kazoo – economical on space, easy to carry around the island and hours of musical pleasure
    2. Some matches because everyone needs a fire
    3. A good book. Maybe if there was literally nothing else to do then I would read. I don’t make enough time for it now…

  • Reply Aileen March 27, 2013 at 7:34 pm


    1. SPF30+ sunscreen cos I’m so paranoid about pre-mature wrinkles, I’d still care about them even if I was potentially never going to see another human being again.
    2. Top shelf vodka – for purely medicinal purposes of course (eg, cleaning wounds I get from trying to shake coconuts off trees or attempting to spearfish)
    3. A Wilson ball, so I can replicate scenes from Cast Away, and plus I actually think Wilson and I would have some good times (or at least lasting memories).

  • Reply Helena March 27, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    I’m wheezing while reading everyone else’s entries, but here we go…

    1. A solar powered iPod. They make them, right? You know I need my One Direction to live.
    2. Speaking of, can I say Harry Styles? Well. There. I did. Harry Styles. He’s technically not an item, but whatevs.
    3. Heston Blumenthal At Home. I can still cook gourmet at-home meals on my island right? Plus I hear Harry likes to cook.

    I was literally looking at this the other day saying, Merowyn, you can’t afford a case of that with a baby hahahaaha… sigh…

    So, 3 things (assuming I already have Hamish and Orlando with me):

    1. My juicer… because I’m obsessed with it then I could juice things to make juice so I wouldn’t die. Ha!
    2. All the books I haven’t had time to read yet, Grace and The Vogue Factor.
    3. A Taco Truck. No explanation necessary.

    1. Moisturiser, my must have when by the sand and sea.
    2. Tissues. Be lost without them.
    3. Tampons, I don’t want to be rolling palm leaves ;)

    A machete
    A drinking glass
    a straw

    might come in handy if I ran out C Coconut Water

  • Reply Dyane C. March 31, 2013 at 5:49 am

    When my immune system is down, I always reach for C Coconut Water! Thanks for this generous giveway.

    If stranded on a desert island, I would wish for

    1. An E-reader like Kindle for reading books. Maybe on a desert island I’d finally get around to finishing War and Peace.

    2. Cats that are trained to find fish! It will be like that “Crazy Cat Lady” but an entire island :)

    3. Here goes! The last thing I would wish for is an unlimited supply of coconuts! (I bet you thought I was going to forget the obvious.) I would be content to exist almost entirely on coconuts. I could eat them, drink them, talk to them (Hey, it worked for Tom Hanks).
    I could threw them at things, play games with them, make percussion instruments OR even make a big SOS sign with them. ;)

    nutty as a coconut,
    Dyane C.

    1. A case of coconut water :) to help me keep hydrated and nourished
    2. First Aid kit ie A case of coconut water ;)
    3. Toilet paper

    Three of the most popular celebrities… they can’t go ANYWHERE without being followed by photographers, so I know we’d all be found really quick. And if the celebrities had no makeup on they’d be spotted even quicker!

  • Reply Sharon April 1, 2013 at 12:03 am

    Three things I’d take when stranded on an island:

    My kindle filled with survival books.
    Fishing rod. A gal needs her omegas, right?
    A crate of Timtams. Chocolate makes it all seem so much better.

    3. Coconuts! I bet you thought I was going to forget the obvious. Coconuts are my life blood. I could eat them, drink them, talk to them (Hey, it worked for Tom Hanks). I could throw them at things, play games with them, and I could even make a big SOS sign with them. ;)

    Nutty for coconuts! Thanks for the fun contest.

    Swiss Army Knife
    Fishing Pole or chocolate (can’t decide)
    My Husband
    It would be kinda nice to get away from electronics for a while.

  • Reply Stevo April 1, 2013 at 6:32 pm

    Please don’t look at my post favourably. I am not a hypochondriac, addicted to coconuts or on Centrelink. I would take a tinny, an outboard and a fishing rod, so I can get the hell off that Island. I’m more of an indoor kind of guy.

    My GENERATOR to power my PHONE and a HAMOCK to be comfortable while sleeping.

    Coconut Water for hydration, War and Peace (will take me forever to read it) and Bear Grylls to help me get through it all!

    1. Insulin- being a diabetic, I’d die with it
    2. A soccer ball called Wilson so I could have someone to argue with and always win the arguments
    3. A lighter so I could light a fire on the beach to keep warm

    I only need to take 1 thing…..the Minnow, you know the boat from Gillian island, it was practically a resort (with plenty of outfit changes) and they only set out for a 3 hour cruise, make that 2…I’ll take my hubby!

  • Reply Karen B April 4, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    1. A knife – For making a coconut shell bikini (a desert island must-have!)
    2. A razor – I don’t want to be mistaken for Tom Hanks when I’m rescued!
    3. A fashion magazine – No doubt I’ll drop several kilos on the island so I need to be able to plan a shopping spree for when I get rescued!!

  • Reply Natasha Fox April 5, 2013 at 3:03 am

    I would take –
    1. and unending C Coconut Water to quench my thirst
    2. coconut sunscreen to protect my skin
    3. a sarong to lie on and not get annoying sand wedgies!

  • Reply Andrew April 5, 2013 at 8:22 am

    Assuming there is a coconut tree on the desert island (what sort of desert island would it be without one) I would take a machette to crack the lid on my coconuts, a straw, and an umbrella to sit under.

  • Reply Beth Healey April 5, 2013 at 8:33 am

    A lassoo to catch me some Coconuts
    A screwdriver to make holes in my Coconuts
    A hammer to be able to open those pesky Coconuts!

  • Reply Sandymg April 5, 2013 at 11:19 am

    Sunblock so I don’t suffer from sunburn while I’m opening coconuts;
    A pack of straws so I don’t spill any precious coconut water;
    Camera so I can document such an awesome experience.
