Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Giveaway (US/Can)

I am really excited to bring you this giveaway! I have been trying out coconut oil recently and LOVE it!

Powered by Mom's Review

 I've been using coconut oil for over a year now and I love it. It's funny though that every time I would tell a friend or family member about it I would get looks of disbelief and of course the one question I always get is does it make everything take like coconuts? Absolutely not! In fact when my family didn't even know when I switched to coconut oil.
I was a bit sneaky about the switch I just started using it without telling my husband and daughter. I wanted to see if they even noticed and they didn't! Now does coconut oil have a taste? Well of course as does every oil out there and they all taste different from each other. It's so subtle though you might not taste it at all, it also depends on what you're cooking it with. The only time my family ever noticed a "taste" is when I made hashbrowns with coconut oil. It wasn't a bad taste but you just noticed it which they hadn't with any other food up until then. That's pretty darn good. It's absolutely wonderful for stir fry, sauteeing anything, pancakes and well everything.

 Tropical Traditions coconut oil gets a 2 thumbs up from Powered by Mom.

Still needs so convincing to make the switch? here is what Mom Does Reviews thinks:

After seeing Tropical Traditions Coconut oil as a giveaway on facebook, I thought sure it was a fancy tanning oil.  I was pretty far off.  Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is actually a healthier alternative to corn oil, vegetable oil or butter.  It is one of the least processed oils, that helps it retain the coconut flavor.  You can use it in just about anything.  I was skeptical at first to even try it for cooking because my son doesn’t like coconut. But after I made pancakes and used coconut oil instead of spray Pam, I was hooked.  There was a slightly sweet coconut taste to the pancakes which made them so much better.  I used coconut oil in brownies that I made also.  They were so much more moist than when I use vegetable or canola oil.  I have replaced butter or vegetable oil with coconut oil in all my baking.
