Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Review & Giveaway!!

Finally! After a few bumps in the road, I am finally doing my review & giveaway for Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. Let me start out by saying I had been reading & hearing so much about coconut oil prior to reviewing the Tropical Traditions brand. I had even purchased another brand at a local grocery store. Having never used coconut oil before, I did not know if the one I had purchased was a good quality one or not… Until I received my samples from Tropical Traditions! The moment I unscrewed the lid and took a quick whiff, I could tell the difference. The one I had bought at the grocery store really did not smell like coconut at all, which had surprised me at the time. The Tropical Traditions brand does have a slight coconut aroma to it-it was very light and quite pleasant.

Virgin Coconut Oil, Gold Label – 1 pint

Since receiving my sample, I have cooked with it on numerous occasions. I no longer use vegetable oil to cook with, and have been using olive oil and my Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil when I cook. Like many moms out there, I want to prepare healthy meals for my family, with healthy ingredients. So far, my family has enjoyed everything I have prepared for them using my Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil! That's definitely a plus. I've also used it for cosmetic purposes! Nothing like killing two birds with one stone!

Tropical Traditions is America's source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: Tropical Traditions.com


What is Virgin Coconut Oil? You can also watch the video they produced about Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil:

Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the  advantages of buying coconut oil online. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.

Tropical Traditions sells many more awesome, healthy products. I was amazed with the variety on their website, they have organic food, skincare, oral hygiene…even pet products!

Win 1 quart of  Gold Label Now to the good stuff! I am pleased to announce that Tropical Traditions has been kind enough to supply me with a 1 Qt. jar of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil to give away to one lucky winner!!! YAY!!!

Where Are You Going On Summer Vacation?!

I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for a vacation!! Now that the kids are out of school, I'm itching to go somewhere…but where? Last year, we went to NYC & Washington, DC. We had a blast in both places & I would love to visit each again. Our little one was a bit disappointed with DC though, you see he thought he would actually be meeting President Obama… so he wants to go back so he can finally meet him, face-to-face! Since I don't think that's happening anytime soon, we probably should hold off on visiting DC for awhile. ;)

I'd love to go back to NYC, so many things I did not get to see…and do. And there's BlogHer'12, I'd give anything to go to that in August!! Maybe I'll get lucky and be able to attend this year.

Then there's the Summer Olympics! I have enjoyed the Olympics since I was a small child- How awesome would it be to travel to London, England and be part of this years Olympic activities?! I've actually been looking for good travel deals online… (just in case I run into a wad of cash under one of the sofa cushions!! ) I'm a very frugal person & saving money is always on my mind when planning a vacation. www.mega.co.uk holidays is a site I have been using to look for great UK travel deals. Even if I don't make it to London for the Olympics, I do plan on going one day and I want to save as much money on my travel expenses as possible. The more I save, the more I will have to spend once I get there!! 

Where are you going this summer? Please share your travel plans with me, who knows, maybe we'll end up meeting up somewhere! 

Take care,
