If you like coconut, you will love this dried coconut by Philippine brand! I love coconut flakes and candies that have coconut with them, so when I saw these dried coconut chips at Costco, I just had to get them!
Until I saw Philippine dried coconut, I’ve never seen such big pieces of dry coconut before – i just saw shredded coconut flakes. The Philippine dried coconuts are big pieces of dry coconut meat – they are the size of potato chips! These dry coconut chips have intense coconut flavor in a chewy form – they are so tasty and so addictive, you just can’t stop eating them!
