My Mum and I had the opportunity to review Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil, and this is my Mum’s review on her blog (http://homesteadingmumofthree.wordpress.com/) and I thought instead of writing the same thing, I’d re-post hers :) Enjoy!
I had the pleasure of reviewing coconut oil from Tropical Traditions. I had heard about them from the internet and thought their background was really neat. You can read their story here:
I have a natural and organic food group where we buy products from a wholesale distributor and I normally buy all my coconut oil from them. They sell a few different brands and I have always been happy with them, but then I happened upon Tropical Tradition. Seeing as how coconut oil is so good for you, and Tropical Traditions has such a unique oil, I really wanted to try it. The way they derive their coconut oil naturally and for ultimate nutrition sounded great, so I really wanted to try it out.
I am happy to report that I love it! We tried it a few different ways and found each way superb. The first method we used, we fried potatoes in the oil. The potatoes tasted fantastic. Crispy, light – with a really great flavor. Then we even tried it with pastry type products (apple fritters, etc). Expecting it to hold the coconut flavor, it really didn’t. We tasted the apples or the pastry flavor and it wasn’t heavy at all. As strange as it is to say, we even used it in our hair – believe it or not, coconut oil has many uses! And again – it is great.
We are all very, very pleased with this product and we do highly recommend it. The price at first might seem a bit steep, but when you consider all that is involved, where it comes from, how it is made, and the nutritional value, it is worth it.
