I've been looking all over the city for sweetened cream of coconut. All I've been able to find is coconut milk. Does anyone know where I can buy this in Calgary??

    According to their site Sunterra Market carries Coco Colada Cream of Coconut.

      It is more likely to be found in the drinks accessories (with bitters, etc) section than with Asian foods.

        I have seen it at the Deerfoot Meadows and Sunridge Suprestore. It is in the Asian aisle with other drinks. They have several different brands.

          Not sure if it was cream of coconut or coconut milk, but I saw a huge pile of cans at T&T today. At the Northwest location.

            I was a Lamda (oriental food market - 1423 Centre Street NW) this afternoon. I saw some small boxes labelled coconut cream in the refrigerator section where they sell fresh vegetables. I don't know if that's what you're looking for but you can go and check it out.

              I've tried the west location of Sunterra foods and they don't have it...the Huntington hills Superstore/Safeway and Co-op only have coconut milk and the Oriental food market on centre street never heard of it. I did find a box labelled coconut cream but I'm not sure what that is. Maybe I'll have to make another trip back to Mexico.

                This page describes it
                http://whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/Co...
                "Cream of coconut - Cream of coconut is a smooth, thick liquid made from fresh coconuts. It is thick and very sweet, and commonly used in mixed drinks. Can usually be found in liquor stores, available in liquid and powdered forms. "

                It is used in drinks like pina colada, hence my suggest to look where with other mixed drink ingredients.
