I have been ordering Virgin Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions for 6 years. When I first learned about coconut oil and all of it's uses, I did a lot of research to find the best quality, which lead me to this wonderful product. This is the only brand I use now and buy it in 5 gallon buckets, which lasts me about 6-9 months. The Gold Label has a wonderful coconut flavor that is awesome in pancakes, dressing, smoothies and Thai/Indian/Caribbean dishes. I also buy the Expeller Pressed oil for frying and other dishes that I don't want to add any flavor to. This is the only tasteless oil in my kitchen, I have completely done away with all canola/vegetable/safflower/grapeseed oils.
I have found plenty of other wonderful products on their site as well. My favorites are their coconut oil lotions, foam soaps and lip moisturizers.
