In any case, browsing down the aisle of Costco today, I happened to come across a new product from the Philippine Brand: Dried Young Coconut. I love coconuts so I had to try it!
For those who are unfamiliar with "young coconut," here's a little primer. The meat of young coconuts are a lot softer and gelatinous than your traditional coconut meat. In fact, young coconut meat is often referred to as "coconut jelly." If you've ever tried one of those exotic flavored drinks from Vietnamese restaurants, you probably have tasted coconut jelly. There are lots of nutritional value found in young coconuts (especially its "coconut water"), but you can google that for yourself.

If you love coconuts, definitely give these a try at your next Costco visit. Look for it in the dried fruit aisle.
