White coconut?!?

White coconut?!?

mickyme | Feb 28, 2003 08:48 PM

I just came back from the supermarket (Stop&Shop) and for the first time in my life I saw a white coconut. I didn't get one because I had a lot of heavy packages with me and a long walk home. Of course I regret it, on my way back I was thinking about the coconut crepes mentioned here earlier (MS had a recipe for them a few days ago and I want to try it). Well, I guess I'll go back tomorrow, but meanwhile: does anybody if there's a difference between a regular coconut and a white one (besides the color, of course)? I don't know why I immagine them sweeter...
I did a quick search, but I don't find any mention of the white variety. Can anyone enlighten me? TIA

p.s. They also had ugly fruit. S&S is getting fancy.
