  • Free Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions Today!

    Tropical Traditions is running a Christmas special! With a $16+ order, they'll send a free quart of Gold Label coconut oil. Good thru Dec 26 (while supplies last).

    I just got 2 quarts for $18.75 -- a free quart plus one for half price. Shipping under $7.

    I just received PB in the mail yesterday so have not had a chance to read it yet, but I have been checking out the forum here for a week or so. I was thinking of taking advantage of this offer from Tropical Traditions but had a question first: does coconut oil taste like coconut? If so does it impart the flavor to food etc? I am not sure I would like to saute a steak and have it come out tasting of coconut.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

      Hmm, the oil does taste of coconut, but the flavor isn't powerful, at least to me. It's more scent than taste. I hear that the intensity and quality of flavor varies by brand.

      Personally, I don't find that the taste really affects foods with a lot of their own flavor (like steak). Eggs cooked in coconut oil do have a surprisingly pleasant, lightly sweet, coconut flavor -- but stir fry made with coconut oil doesn't taste coconutty.

      Hope that helps!

          Eek, canio6. I'd have a different answer for you. It so depends on what kind of CO you get. I remember my first CO having a CO smell and taste. I wanted to add it to foods but it made everything, IMO, taste/smell like coconut, which i did not want! and i even liked coconut! So i bought some refined CO from Tropical Traditions (by the quart) which was real helpful for me. However, when i bought the same product in a gallon bucket, it was not good at all. (BTW, TT came thru for me and left me a satisfied customer!). Now I'm currently using their Green label for everything and I don't mind it any more. I like the way it tastes in my daily cups of bone broth or egg drink. I generally don't cook with it as the kids can smell it (even a teeny tiny tsp!!!) and they start hollering and having fits! One jar i got from Wilderness Family was the absolute best CO i've ever had, tho. http://www.wildernessfamilynaturals....oconut-oil.php It was pure heaven! So mild. So light. So - - yummy! I just can't afford it! I take 5.5 Tbsp daily (for candidiasis healing).

            Thanks for the response. I ordered the gold label which was on sale. I'll give it a try and see. If it is overly coconutty I'll just use it for when I make curry or soups with coconut milk.

                I just tried to order it but it gave me an error page after hitting the “place order” button.



                emailed their customer service people. we’ll see what happens.

                  Well ... I have a GALLON of TT Gold Label Coconut Oil in my pantry, so I sure don't need any more right now! But, I guess that's a testimony to how good it is!

                    I took advantage since I got a little holiday bonus. $27 for 2 jars of Gold Label. Not too shabby!

                    I'm waiting for the next time they offer free shipping so I can either get 3 1-gallon buckets, or go for the big 5-gallon bucket. Oh, it'll get used. It'll all get used.

                      No kidding! I use the stuff for cooking, face and body moisturizer, deodorant, anti-candida treatment...

                        I've got another 5-gallon pail on the way right now, but this is seriously tempting me to place another order.

                        This is the best deal they've had in ages. If any of you have been saying "Someday I'm going to try Tropical Traditions Gold Label coconut oil" NOW is the time to place your order!
