I’m not sure whether coconut oil counts as a staple for me at this point, but when I ran out of the fancy, fair trade coconut oil I bought a while ago, I figured I’d price coconut oil at the Chinese market before deciding. They have fresh mature coconut, young coconut, a couple forms of frozen coconut, coconut cream, coconut cream concentrate, coconut milk powder, several brands and forms of coconut milk, etc. but no coconut oil. Funny.
Edit: I lived without coconut oil for a while then found it 25% off at bulk barn, which worked out to $6 for 500 mL. I also had a $3 off $10 coupon, so it was actually a bit less than that.
