In love with the cocooo

Little did I know, but kokosbrood turns out to be a Dutch invention! Translated as ‘coconutbread’, it’s something to put ON TOP OF bread. It usually contains gelatin or sometimes honey or even smashed insects, but now there’s also a vegan version! 🎉 If you’re Dutch you probably ate this as a child so time to get nostalgic.

If you’re never had this before and wonder what the fuck it is. It’s basically grated coconut with starch and heaps of sugar. Packed in slices the same size as a slice of bread.

So the main kokosbrood producer Theunisse created a vegan one, look out for the package which says ‘biologisch glutenvrij’ (organic & glutenfree). At the moment only available at Deen supermarkets, though not all of them. All Amsterdam locations have them except the one at Rijnstraat and the one at Lange Vonder.

Vegan cheese at the supermarket!


This feels weird… checking out the cheese department at the supermarket. Vegan cheese is not only sold at organic or vegan stores but in supermarkets in town as well! Jumbo has Wilmersburger cheese for a while now in most of their stores. And recently the news spread one can order Wilmersburger at the Albert Heijn as well. Just go to the help desk in the shop and ask for it. A few Deen supermarkets also sell Wilmersburger. When calling today the one at Mosveld (Amsterdam North) confirmed they have it in their store, the other stores in Amsterdam don’t have it (yet?).
