Today I’m reviewing a product that I’ve always been a little curious about! The Philippine Brand Young Dried Young Coconut from Costco!

Cost

The 510 oz bag of dried young coconut cost $9.99 Canadian. Since I’ve never tried a product like this before I don’t have much to compare the cost to!

Convenience

I’ll point out that the coconut needs to be refrigerated after opening, we almost missed that on the bag. The best before date is over a year from the date I purchased the product, that’s a long time! When we tried this we thought it might be good added to ice cream or even added to coconut yogurt. It also makes a convenient snack or dessert.

Taste

I can’t say I loved this. The texture is fine and it tastes just like super sugary coconut but both my husband and I noticed it to have a weird savory aftertaste that lingers after you’ve finished eating a bite. The aftertaste is hard to describe but it wasn’t pleasant. The consistency is similar to dried mango. Overall I found the young dried coconut much too sweet and think I might have enjoyed it more if it were a little less sweet and didn’t have a funky aftertaste!

I didn’t love this enough to repurchase it again even though I really do like all things coconut!

Taste: 6/10

Cost: 6/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 3/10 (for the fibre)
