Where do I find coconut milk in a CAN?

The Whole 30 people say I need the coconut milk from a can, not carton. I'm kinda glad because the stuff I picked up in a carton is tasteless and textureless and offers nothing redeeming.

However, I can't find the stuff in a can. I've looked at Randalls and Kroger. Will I have to go to Whole Paycheck?

You should find it in the Asian food section of your grocer. The trick is to find it without the guar gum or other thickeners. I also understand that there is a frozen kind I have not been able to find yet. It is not only top notch stuff, but it makes for a tasty substitute for ice cream..

Asian section of the grocery store!

@Cuthbert: I'm glad you said that about the Guar gum...have you found a specific brand in a can that doesn't have it? I am interested!

Aroy-D is another:
Ingredients: coconut milk 55%, water, potassium metabisulfite (as perservative). Unsweetened. Product of Thailand.

Walmart has it, but I order it off amazon by 12 packs.

So, I went to Kroger. I am out of money until next week, so I used the Coinstar and turned in all my change. $34.64. I found the canned coconut milk in the Asian section, on sllight sale. I purchased 3 cans and an on sale rubbermail container. I also picked up eggsland's best hard boiled eggs and went to work.

I've had a cup of coffee with coconut cream. I can't tell you how much better it was than the other coconut stuff from a carton! That was little more than water!

But the best was the slightly defrosted mixed berries with coconut cream. Yum-O.

ooh I can't stand the so delicious coconut milk "beverage". It just tastes like colored water that's been sitting in the sun to me.

Trader Joe's always has coconut milk in a can for less than the other grocers around here, even less than Walmart.
