Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil Review and Giveaway

I love anything with coconuts. As a matter of fact, I just had coconut juice today. We also use coconut milk in many of our dishes. I think it has a lot to do with growing up in a tropical island. Recently I came across Tropical Traditions. I thought it was odd why I never heard of them since their products are made from the Philippines, where I was born and grew up. I shop in an Asian Store every month, and I never seen their products, only until I started blogging and entering giveaways.


I was sent their Virgin Coconut Oil to try out. Although a lot of our cooking are with coconuts, I never really used coconut oil before. So I just used it just like I normally use any oil or butter. The first thing I noticed when I opened it is that it is thick but once you put it on a hot pan it melted right away, so you really just need a little bit. The coconut oil gives off a lovely aroma as its cooks. I was surprised that it did not make my chicken taste like coconut. So don't worry that when cooking with coconut oil, everything will taste like coconut! However, I did noticed that there are certain food that you can taste a hint of coconut in it, specially on sweets. Another thing I like about coconut oil is that it is much healthier because when it’s heated it does not create toxic trans fatty acids.

Make sure you check their websites for free coconut recipes.
