  • Amazon Is Selling Coconut Shells For Over Rs 1,300 And Indians Are Stunned

Well, this is coconuts! Next time you're about to throw taway a coconut shell, you may want to stop and store it carefully instead - because, believe it or not, they are fetching big bucks on the Internet. Indians were recently "shell-shocked" to discover that the humble coconut shell is being sold on e-commerce website Amazon for nearly Rs. 1,300.

 

"This is an actual, real, coconut. Therefore, it may have cracks, dents and imperfections," reads the product description.

 

Rebranded as "Natural coconut shell cups", these shells start at Rs. 1,289 and can even go up to Rs. 2,499!

 

The revelation, predictably enough, left many Indians stunned. Used to buying coconuts for as little as 20 bucks apiece and then throwing the shells away, they took to Twitter in disbelief. Their reactions were even curated into their own Twitter Moment.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

On Amazon, these coconut shells have garnered mixed reviews.

 
 
 
 

"In Kannada we call this chippu, means you'll get nothing," laughed one person while writing a product review for the natural coconut shell. "I pity those who are buying these useless shells," another said.

 

However, a few users who actually bought the coconut shells found them to be useful. "Natural coconut shell... it's used for various purposes... showroom price would be around 3k... my friend brought it at low price at 1300... great Amazon," wrote one reviewer.
