Unsweetened Coconut Strips in NYC?

The product I'm looking for is basically this Trader Joe's product (http://www.amazon.com/Trader-Joes-Lig...) only without the sugar.

I'm not looking for coconut flakes - they are too insubstantial for my taste. I live in Manhattan (Flatiron) but would also be happy to order a product like this online. Thanks in advance for your help!

  1. Kalustyan's on Lexington has 56 sku's in their coconut department, many of them dry and unsweetened.

      Thanks for the recommendation! I'll try to check them out this week.

        +1 on kalustyan's rec, their prices are competitive too

    2. I believe I saw some at Costco, but more like chunks.

        Was this the one you saw in Costco?

        Tasty but has sugar.

        I have purchased unsweetened coconut at Fairway in their organic section.

          I believe so.

            There's a fairway opening up near me next week - will give it a try.

            1. re: MVNYC

              that's exactly the one I saw

          2. Nut box. Bought some at the Chelsea Market location recently (even though the brooklyn store is closer to home - was out and saw them).

            the downside: they are damn addicting.

              Good shout.

              I can imagine they'd be addicting but I figure it's better than stuffing my face with candy or cookies.

              1. re: mcopenhagen

                oh yeah, for sure. i find in the high high humidity of summer they sometimes benefit from a few seconds in a dry non-stick pan, sometimes finished with a pinch of curry powder and salt.

                now im hungry.

                  If/when you can imagine turning on the oven this recipe for "coconut bacon" is the very definition of addictive.....
