Tropical Traditions Organic Palm Shortening Review & Giveaway (ENDED)

The previous winner did not get back to me, a new winner has been selected. Comment #133 is the new winner!




My family has received a couple of Tropical Traditions products to review and we loved everything we tried so far, so we were excited to when we were asked to review the Organic Palm Shortening.

As you may recall, DD just had her 4th birthday party. I made her birthday cake as well as the cupcakes for all of her birthday party guests. I even made my own icing for the cake and the cupcakes. Tropical Traditions Organic Palm Shortening came just in time for me to make the icing with it. Because I have never used palm shortening before, I was not sure what to expect. After using it, I discovered the icing to be as tasty as ever and I love that it's actually better for us than the shortening I was using before. I also make my own pie crust (for chicken potpies and blueberry pies). Using the palm shortening, the pie crusts came out very flaky and yummy.


I have never been disappointed with any of the Tropical Tradition products we tried and I don't think you will either.





To buy your own Organic Palm Shortening, please go to Tropical Traditions to make your purchase.





Many thanks to Sandra of Tropical Traditions. She has generously offered 1 gallon of Organic Palm Shortening as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US and Canada residents only please).

I would like to experiment with using Tropical Traditions Coconut Flour in the making of coconut macaroons. Organic, unleavened, and gluten free. That and a Polynesian themed cocktail to complement the macaroons.

Hope to win!
