ISO coconut cream (ie Coco Lopez)

Hi there,
Anyone know where this is sold? I'm in Etobicoke/Toronto. I am desperate to make a coconut cake recipe that calls for it and the big and little Loblaws near me don't carry it...

  1. I would be very surprised if a big Loblaws does not have it. It should be near the drink mix aisle or possibly, the international foods Thai section. Any large grocery store should carry it. Not an exotic item but grocery clerks often haven't a clue.

      Thanks. We looked in both areas at a large, newish Loblaws and then the store manager said they no longer carry it - lack of demand! Very annoying.
      I will try more loblaws I guess...

    2. Not Etobicoke but I've seen it at Dominion at Yonge and Eg.

      1. I'm pretty sure my local Price Chopper has it (Gladstone & Queen). Or perhaps the No Frills in Dufferin Mall with the big huge international aisle.

        1. If all else fails, you can go to Little India on Gerrard or T&T Cherry St. I know it's not in your neighbourhood, but you should be able to find coconut cream at these places.
          I've gotten it at the Supercentre recently at Don Mills and Eglinton.

            ...or Chinatown. I bought some at one of the Asian grocery stores on Spadina today.
