My First giveaway! Coconut Oil! [Closed]

Ok guys I am just about BURSTING at the seams to tell you about this!

I'm joining up with Tropical Traditions, an amazing company that sells primarily coconut oil, and having my first giveaway contest!

One of you lucky dogs will win a free jar of coconut oil!

I was first introduced to Tropical Traditions brand about 5 years ago when working at a small local natural food store. My boss swore by coconut oil and primarily used Tropical Traditions. Now I'm hooked! I used it for everything and I love it!


You can view my previous post about how much I love coconut oil here.

Lately I have been using Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions. I'd have to say primarily because it is cheaper. Gold Label is a much higher grade and quality and retains much more of the coconut scent and flavor. Which brings me to another reason I choose the Expeller-Pressed over the Gold-Label. For me personally, I have never been a fan of the flavor of coconut and I know many others aren't either. I cook with coconut oil often and I don't always want the flavor or smell of coconut oil. Now don't get me wrong, MANY people love the flavor and scent but to stay on the safe side, I prefer coconut oil without it. That way I'm able to sneak it into more foods without people catching on and whining "Ewww did you put healthy stuff in this??" Why yes, yes I did. But what they don't know, can't hurt 'em!

All that being said, the Gold Label is much higher quality and better overall. My mother-in-law and I did a smell/taste test and she really enjoyed the fact that the Gold Label had a stronger flavor and scent.

I highly recommend Tropical Traditions coconut oil and that's coming from years of using it, not getting a free sample!

Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil - 32 oz.
Win 1 quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!

Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil?



Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.
