Whither Sweetened Shredded Coconut?

In my childhood there were tons of cooky and cake recipes that called for this product. Bakers produced sweetened shredded coconut. No more. I've contacted Bakers and they're not making it anymore. I've gone to three grocery stores in my area. Nada. Of any brand. What has happened to sweetened shredded coconut? Is there an affordable source?

  1. I don't know where you live, but it's in every grocery store in my town.

    1. I'm in MA and have a bag of sweetened coconut flakes in my freezer right now that I had no trouble finding at the local store.....

      1. I bought a bag just a few weeks ago. It's store brand, but I'm pretty sure I saw Baker's right next to it. Coconut cake is alive and well in the Southeast. There would probably be riots if stores stopped carrying sweetened coconut.

        1. Flakes are still very common. Shredded, slightly less so, but still available. I've listed several sources I found, on your other thread.

          1. Somebody's told you a fib -- http://www.kraftbrands.com/bakerschoc...

            1. Angel Flake sweetened coconut is still listed on Baker's (Kraft's) site. Amazon is selling it among other online retailers

              1. I find it much harder to find unsweetened shredded coconut.

                  Amazon has a large selection of both.

                    The problem with ordering from Amazon is having to order 6-12 bags at a time or paying exorbitant shipping for one bag from an outside seller. Thanks though.
