Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Giveaway

**Giveaway now closed.**
I told you there were giveaways coming!  Let's start one today!

Recently I received some Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions to review.  It was perfect timing as I was wanting to start using coconut oil in my cooking.  Wow - great stuff!

Not only is coconut oil healthy for you, but this Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is very high quality.  You can read all about virgin coconut oil on the Tropical Traditions site.

Since this coconut oil is hand-processed, it has the scent and slight taste of coconut which my family enjoyed.  It's solid when under 76 degrees F, which takes a little getting used to, but it melts really fast if you need it in liquid form.

I tried the coconut oil in several things:  popping popcorn on the stove (so yummy), sauteing vegetables, Nutella Biscotti, and Orange-Chocolate Slice Cookies.  I like how clean and clear the oil is and everything I've cooked with it has been delicious.  I plan on continuing to use coconut oil in my cooking and am impressed with the quality of Tropical Traditions coconut oil.

Tropical Traditions has generously offered to give one of my U.S. **ETA: or Canadian** readers a 32 oz. jar of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil (pictured above)!!  Wow - that's a $37.50 value!

How to enter:
 - Go to the Tropical Traditions website; come back and leave a comment telling me what products most interest you.

Bonus entries - optional (1 each, leave a separate comment for each):
 - Follow @troptraditions and me (@stop4chocolate) on Twitter
 - Sign up for Tropical Traditions e-mail newsletter to get updated about sales
 - Check out the free coconut recipes and tell me your favorite one
 - Promote this giveaway using your favorite form(s) of social media

This giveaway will last through Friday 3/12 and winner will be announced on Saturday 3/13.

If you already use coconut oil, you know what a great giveaway this is and if you've never used coconut oil before, then winning the giveaway would be a great way to try it for the first time!

DisclosureTropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose.  Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product.

If you have a chance today, stop by Frugal Femina to check out my guest post - I created a healthier brownie recipe for Katie (who also uses Tropical Traditions by the way!) and added some coconut oil to the recipe! 

Have a great day friends!

  9. I, too, have just started using coconut oil and I really like it! Another blogger had suggested red palm oil, but I do NOT like that one. I have been a fan of MacNut macadamia nut oil, but it is so expensive...also I use a high-quality olive oil (it's expensive too)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I've been reading more and more about the benefits of coconut oil and have been looking for a high quality brand. I also think the skin care products at Tropical Traditions look wonderful!

  26. I just started using coconut oil and will never stop. It is amazing. I would love to try their Gold Label. I am also very interested in learning more about their cage-free, grass fed animals such as bison and turkey. We also just started eating bison and love it! I haven't researched it yet, but I'm hoping they have chicken too.

  34. I'm a fan! Starting using coconut oil a few months ago for cooking and for skin and hair care and I love it. So far I have given away MOST of my skin creams and lotions and have dumped the gallon of cooking oil that lives under the sink! I would love to try that coconut peanut butter on their site.
