Golden Star, right? I just discovered this stuff myself. It is good—higher in both fat and saturated fat than just about every other brand, dead simple ingredients list, tasty, and inexpensive. I don't know how they do it, considering how all the other coconut milks I've seen have jumped in price lately. I plan to see how it is poured over a bowl of mixed berries this weekend.
ETA: Dave RN, you answered my question while I was still composing my post. Thanks! I snooze, I lose.
Up until our last trip to Walmart - we do the Walmart/Costco thing about every three months - Golden Star was $1.28 a can! Last time they'd bumped it the 20¢, crap. Still a great buy though. Our little local grocery has Thai Kitchen brand with some creepy additives for almost $3 a can, later for that. I probably use three cans in an average week and that savings covers my gas for the long trip to the city every few months.
What about PBAs in the cans? I avoid Thai kitchen for that reason also. I have Native Forest right now and it has guar. Also have some Trader Joes which I bought since it has no guar but is sadly "light". I figured I could add a bit of CO easier than remove the guar gum, heheh. I really hate going to Walmart. I do for car oil, so next time I am in there will check.
After hearing Mat Lalonde at AHS I am no longer convinced that all legume products are deadly anti nutrients. I would take guar bean gum over PBA any day. I guess the old hippie chick anti additive mentality still lives on in me.
