    Campaign to get Trader Joes to carry REAL coconut milk!

    Primal Fuel
    I do most of my grocery shopping at Trader Joes, and I know many people here do as well. And, as we know, they only carry "Light" coconut milk, although up until 2-3 years ago, they had the real thing as well. So, I'm wanting to get as many people here as possible to email them! I already did, and mentioned the Paleo diet, etc. If you can help me out with a quick email to them I'd appreciate it! http://www.traderjoes.com/about/index.asp

    You can just send it in to General Inquires.

    Thanks!!!

    I'm in. Just sent my note. And I also asked them to start carrying full-fat Greek yogurt at my local store. I've heard some TJ's have it, but both TJ's that I shop at never have it.

    I was JUST at Trader Joe's about an hour ago and asked for real coconut milk, but alas, mine does not carry it either. I'm definitely going to send them an email!

    Great thread, I love Trader Joe's as well and was upset about the coconut situation! Hopefully they'll listen.

    I already asked at mine; they told me there wasn't enough demand for it. Guess we need to be more demanding.

    Even though their coconut milk it light, I still buy it because it is the ONLY brand I have found without any guar gum or other crap.

    That being said, I sent them an email about a month ago asking if they would get full fat..... I hope they do, but keep it free of guar gum.

    Do you have a Asian market(s) close to where you live? I usually buy my coconut milk at the Asian markets.

    I have been able to find one that only has coconut, water and Sodium metabisulfite. Not sure if that is a good thing or not. It is made by Orchids and I get it for about $1 a can at the military commisary, but I have seen it elsewhere at a reasonable price. Can you really buy coconut milk anywhere that doesn't have something in it (other than Thailand)?
