Kashered to cook, but no place to buy?

Welcome. So here's the thing: how tired can you get of going to IGA, Safeway, Superstore, Choices, Save-on, etc., etc., basically careening all over Vancouver looking for the ONE place that has canned creamed corn with a hechsher (We looked for an illiteration. Really we did.)? We created this blog with the intent of listing items like that. We shlep around so you don't have to.

Do you know where you can get coconut milk with a hechsher? Guess what? According to BC Kosher, Arroy-D coconut milk is approved without a hechsher. But how is one supposed to know that?

This is the kind of thing we're talking about.

I contacted BCK to see if the Arroy-D coconut milk is alright without a hechsher and was told that it was not. I was wondering where you got the okay for this product?

We had called BCK and asked about coconut milk. Someone from BCK returned the call and left a message regarding Arroy-D coconut milk - not from China - having nothing objectionable about it.

BCK will not officially "approve" or condone anything that does not have a BCK (or other acceptable) hechsher. This holds with your original comment regarding what BCK said to you.

And as with many items, it is possible that in the year and a half since this post was written, something about Arroy-D has changed. There's more on the coconut issue on this post:
