Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil {Giveaway}

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.

Disclaimer: Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product. If you order by clicking on any of my links and have never ordered from Tropical Traditions in the past, you will receive a free book on Virgin Coconut Oil, and I will receive a discount coupon for referring you.

I am happy to sponsor a giveaway from this lovely company. To enter for your chance to win One Quart Jar of Gold Label Coconut Oil ($40 value) from Tropical Traditions, simply follow the link to subscribe to the Coconut Oil Newsletter, come back here to Taste is Trump and leave a comment telling me that you did. Contest closes at 11:59 p.m. mountain time on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 and winner will be announced on Thursday, April 5, 2012. The winner will have three days to claim their prize.

  23. Ok, so I have a question. I have used coconut oil a few times, but stopped using it, mostly because it hardens, or solidifies when used in cold recipes. How do you use it pancake batter or other recipes, without it doing this?

    1. In Arizona, most of the time it is not a problem. I have found that mixing while pouring helps a lot. Usually they only thing that is cold are the eggs, so if I leave those out to take the chill off a bit, or mix them a couple minutes first, then add the oil, I am good to go. Also, make sure your oil is completely melted before using it in batters.

  26. I have just bought my first jar of coconut oil and was told by the store owner that a teaspoon eaten daily can help with weight loss.

It's rude to eat and run. Humor me with conversation please!
