Tropical Traditions Review & Giveaway (ENDED)


Do you love the taste of coconut? I know I do! DH is not a fan of coconut, but it did not stop him from eating all of the yummy food I made with Tropical Tradition Virgin Coconut Oil. Before discovering Tropical Tradition, I had no idea that you can buy organic coconut oil and use it in your cooking. I was lucky enough to receive a whole jar to try out!

After trying it, I have to say that I don't think I can go back to using typical oil I had been buying from the supermarket. I have been using it for cooking as well as baking and I can't believe how well it works when I used it instead of butter in my cakes and homemade buttermilk icing. I also used it to stir-fried Chinese vegetables. You should smell my kitchen when I was done cooking. From the smell alone, you would think I was some sort of professional chef (and I am clearly not ^_^).



Besides the fact that it tastes so great, I love that it is organic! That's right, the Virgin Coconut Oil is made by hand (not processed by machines) and the company allows the oil to separate from the coconut juice naturally. If you are a mother concerned about your family's health but you don't want to sacrifice taste, you need to pick a jar of Virgin Coconut Oil up and try it for yourself. To buy it, please go to the Tropical Traditions store.
If you would like to learn more about the coconut oil, be sure to watch this very informative video.



Many thanks to Sandra of Tropical Traditions. She has offered 1 jar of Virgin Coconut oil as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers!
