**ENDED**Review & Giveaway: Tropical Traditions!


**THIS CONTEST IS OVER**

We get a lot of emails asking us where we purchase our coconut oil and coconut flour. We've tried a lot of different brands over the years but finally settled on Tropical Traditions, for a lot of reasons but the main one was because they have excellent customer service. They really do go above and beyond to make sure their customers are satisfied and their products are amazing and affordable. Plus they have a strong commitment to family farming and organic standards! 

We use their coconut oil as our main cooking and baking oil, the taste is amazing! We also use it as a lotion and hair conditioner, it's a great household product to have on hand. Their coconut flour is wonderful and perfect for all our baking needs!

They also have a TON of gluten-free recipes on their site; excellent, kitchen-tested recipes! We've tried quite a few of them, it's so nice to have such a large resource for experimenting in the kitchen. In fact, this weekend Little Chef helped Momma Chef whip up some Chocolate Chip Cookies using THIS recipe and they were really yummy!

Since we are such big fans of Tropical Traditions, we are pleased to be able to offer a giveaway!! That's right, one lucky reader will win a jar of their Gold Label Coconut Oil and a bag of their Coconut Flour!

  45. I am very interested in trying out the coconut oil in baking. I recently bought another brand of coconut oil from an ethnic foods store, but I wasn't too impressed with the quality.

    ReplyDelete
  46. OK, I'm in! Just signed up--and wow thanks for posting this site! I've been looking for an all-purpose coconut oil site like this--everything looks so good, it's hard to pick any one thing out as a favorite. Right this moment I think I may just treat myself to the lavender citrus gift bag. Coconut oil based beauty products do wonders to soften skin. Thanks!

  71. Just subscribed. I would have to say I am most interested in their rebounders (was linked from that site, but I see the header changed names from Tropical Traditions...seems to be the same company), but their coconut flour has got to be the best price I've seen and probably what I'd most likely buy other than virgin coconut oil.
