Frozen acai pulp in greater Boston?

I'm told some Brazilian grocery stores may sell acai pulp, but I could use some help in narrowing down the options. Has anyone seen it locally?

  1. hahaha, with that moniker, you have my allegiance for life! itaunas will know the answer to this. i can at least say that i have found a particularly large assortment of frozen fruit pulps at the (itaunas-recommended) small Brazilian grocery on Bow St, Union Sq. You pass Capone's on your left (Bow is one way) and this little place (also a butcher iirc) is on the left at the end of Bow as you round the corner...

    1. It's been quite a while but I bought some at Whole Foods. Unsweetened, in small packs intended to be used for smoothies.

      1. When I need frozen fruit purees, I go to Christina's Spice & Specialty Foods in Inman Square, which carries the Boiron line (pricey but high quality -- most of their stock goes to local restaurant pastry chefs). I don't think they have an açaí flavor, though.
