Where to buy coconut and/or almond extracts?

Does anyone know where you can buy proper extracts? Yesterday I used the synthetic coconut flavoring in my Thai green curry and frankly couldn't taste it at all. And I used synthetic almond flavoring in a carrot cake but it just tasted bitter and chemically.

I've looked and looked online - US companies have them but won't ship - and in Holland and I can't find the real thing anywhere. Can't even get proper vanilla in the shops here!

Any idea where I can get it that will ship to Holland? I'm going to London soon and could look there, if anyone has any tips.

Just a quick thought - have you tried ebay? I seem to remember someone once saying that they got theirs there and you might getting shipping to Holland.
Good luck!

You star! Found it! Thank you!

I buy nearly everything else on Ebay. Can't believe I didn't think of looking there!

Oooh, lemon curd and coconut! I think I know what my next SW lemon meringue pie is going to have in it. :) I've ordered all three flavours from Ebay. Coconut was hardest to get and I'm paying a small fortune for it. Lots of companies in the US carry it but don;t do international shipping. Anyway, I suppose that if it's a good quality, a small bottle should last a long time, and I think it's more than worth it if I can eat near-authentic tasting Thai green curry. :)
