Excellent Coconut milk - best ive tried.
on 13 November 2013
I was sceptical before I bought this product. Did I want 12 boxes of disappointment without seeing any reviews here or anywhere on the internet? But I just couldn't resist the ingredient content: 75% COCONUT EXTRACT AND WATER? 1 LITRE? NO BPA? NO ADDED GUMS/WOOD CELLULOSE/PRESERVATIVES? AT THAT PRICE?! Lemme risk it. The closet thing I read online that it may be comparable to is Aroy D's 100% coconut milk which only seems to be available in America.
I've tried Chaokoh, canned Aroy-D milk, Rajah, Waitrose Organic, Biona, canned Kingfishers Organic milk and many others. The best one out of these is the Waitrose Organic brand but it was too pricey (£2.09 per 400ml). Biona is a watery mess (huge disappointment) and Kingfisher Organic is a revolting grayish watery sludge and it cost me the same price as the Waitrose brand! Never buy it! Oh and don't get me started on Koko's (Kara in some countries) "Coconut" milk which is A WASTE OF MONEY. High priced white filtered water!
But this is by far is the best coconut milk available in the UK. It's so cheap compared to the other coconut milks out there. It's excellent if you use coconut milk in alot of recipes on a daily basis e.g. lattes, desserts, sauces etc. Its in a tetra pack so no BPA. Its 1 litre at £1.44 per carton with 75% coconut milk content! No additives, fillers or preservatives. Its just coconut and water. The taste is sweet and 'coconuty'. The coconut doesn't separate from the water because the coconut content is so high you can tell its a premium product. Straight from the box its a heavy dense cream but when you warm it in the pan it becomes more liquid so you can use it for ANYTHING. I've been looking for a cheap alternative to milk and cream but buying coconut milk by the can was hurting my wallet.
I hope this product never goes out of stock and never raises its price - getting coconut milk in the carton over here is so difficult especially at such an amazing price and quality. To me this beats the organic brands that put their food in tins!!! Maybe it will motivate companies to stop with their cheap fillers, poisonous packaging and rip off prices with like 2% coconut actually inside the damn thing! *ahem* -_____-
Thank you Amazon!
