Creamed coconut is not the same as condensed coconut milk. It contains coconut-meat solids and is pulpier/thicker, and will not taste like coconut milk by thinning it out with water. What you get: inside the green box you see in the picture is a plastic-wrapped block of creamed coconut. Unless your house is very warm, it will be rock-hard. I fill a bowl with hot tap water and immerse the entire package, then knead it with my fingers after a few minutes. Repeat a couple of times, then snip the package open and pour/squeeze it out like toothpaste for use in cooking. If you don't use the entire package all at once it will resolidify; that's what real coconut cream does. That's why I love these little packages, as opposed to the 16-oz jars of other brands.

I really like the product, but I really hate the plastic packaging. Wish they would put it in a jar, even a BPA free plastic jar, just as long as it wasn't that cheap, toxic plastic wrapper. May not continue buying because of this.

This is a very thick product, more like a paste than a milk. And it has texture to it. It also has a rather strong coconut flavour. It isn't bad, but it's different from most coconut creams.

This product was costly while not working that well. I had to use 4 tbs of the "cream" and two of water , then add Coconut Thai milk to get the consistantcy I wanted. Probably will not be purchasng this product again.
