From the Test Kitchens... Cream of coconut is still on the market but may not be in as wide a distribution as vanilla pudding. We tested this recipe with vanilla pudding as well as coconut cream pudding. The recipe worked well using either of these pudding and pie filling products.

I am trying to find the instant coconut cream pudding and pie filling mix. I live in CT and I'm having difficulty locating it in our local grocery stores. Any help would be greatly appreciated it. :(
