Tropical Traditions Organic Shredded Coconut Review and Giveaway




Recently, I had an opportunity to review Tropical Tradition's Shredded Coconut product. It really was a collaborated effort between my husband and I. Although we share cooking responsibilities in the household, he tends to lean towards more with baking. So naturally, he was the one who used this product more than I did. This is what he said about the product:

I like coconut macaroons, and I baked macaroons with this product often. At times, I use this product as well for snacks with my daughter. Whether eating it as is, or mixing 2 cups of the shredded coconut, and mixing it in a bowl with 3/4 cup of hershey's chocolate syrup (mixing it until it forms clumps, it takes kind of like mounds chocolate bar), it is a great treat. I haven't had the chance to try it myself, but I think it would make a wonderful component ( if the coconut was mixed with water and squeezed to get the juice out ) for Thai style chicken curry.

  72. I just ordered the pail of shredded coconut, the buy 1 get 1 free on the gold oil, and the coconut cream. Can't wait to get them and try some of these delicious sounding recipes. I love macaroons, we'll see if I can pull them off! Also have the book on the way. Wondering if anyone knows if the oil is good to use for massage? Some make the liquid oil but not sure on the quality of them. jacalynlantrip@yahoo.com
