Or does it exist? I can't find any for less that $9.00. Is that normal? Coconut shrimp cooked in olive oil is good, but I'm sure they'd be better in coconut oil.
I suggest a baggy sweatshirt to give you the five-finger discount...
No, seriously though, you're not gonna find it for much cheaper than that. It's spendy stuff. O_o
I know many people here like the Tropical Traditions brand, though I've never tried it myself. Not cheaper, but definitely quality stuff.
If you have a Whole Paycheck near you their house brand (365) is $7. A couple bucks cheaper, anyway!
It's so calorie/fat dense that it's totally worth it!
I would personally buy different brands till you like one the best. The first one I tried was mucho expensivo and the taste sucked and made me want to gag, whereas the cheapo one I have now is great.
I can get it at the Commissary for $5 a jar.

Hi guys, I'm new here. Soooooo, I have a couple questions about coconut oil...
Is it good on salad? -and if so what mixes with it, like vinegar or what just salt and pepper? And what should it taste and feel like, ya know a good variety should be what- sweet, or tangy or thick and sticky or smooth.???.. I'm getting some tonight when I go shopping, but I wanted some heads up on it if anyone can fill in some details.

Never tried it on salad as it's solid at room temp bit like butter - doesn't take much to melt...
CO is solid at room temp, so it's application as a salad oil is somewhat limited. It turns liquid at around 100F so you can warm is slightly and use in salad.
I got some cheap stuff at walmart $6 for a big jar, but it is the refined stuff so it is flavorless, which I find to be a real bummer. I love the flavor of the virgin stuff.
It's grandma, but you can call me sir.
