    [QUOTE=mozzy10;338324]I bought quite a few (20ish) cans of "Dunn's River" coconut milk from Asda but it was a few months ago. 50p a can.

    Ingredients are coconut meat extract, water!


    I also buy Dunn's River, at tesco - 50p for a can. Caribbean products shelf.

    Would that be 'Island Sun' brand? 2 cans for 99p, ingredients 'coconut extract, water'. But only 6% fat - can that be right?

    My local Tesco hasn't had Dunn's River for ages. I used to buy trays of it at a time!

    How is coconut milk made from creamed coconut? Is it not lumpy?

    coop also sell for 55p. I like it for cooking, but its thin (no guar gum) so not so great on berries.

    I quite like the blue dragon full fat one

    Funny this thread is kickin, I was just googling for Dunn River coconut milk nutritional breakdowns, as the can didn't have any. Wanted to see if it was primal, and for 55p it sure is good. Just had a salad bag and coconut milk shake, lovely! I used to buy coconut milk in a purple can with a dragon on it and it was a lumpy pain. Dunn river is well....more like milk and is much better imo.

    Buy Biona's brand. It's something like 1.20 for 400g. Organic etc.

    I buy all my coconut produce from them, oil aswell. You can get it from Planet organic(Essex road or Torrington place) or Whole foods as far as i know.

    I get Blue Dragon full fat. I've had Dunn River before, quite recently, but it was thinner than what I expected. Made me think it was watered down (that, and the lower price).

    I like the thick creaminess to the Blue Dragon stuff. Worth the extra money imo.
