Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Review


I have been really excited to do this review. My family and I are not coconut fans. Especially, my husband. Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil has many uses, however my review will strictly stick to cooking with it. When, I first received it I was surprised to find it is solid like lard. It has a slight coconut smell, but it is not overwhelming.
I decided to put it to the test by frying fish for dinner. I scooped out the solid oil  and placed it in my fryer. Let me say, I put as much coconut oil as I would lard. Big mistake! With Tropical Traditions, you only need a little bit! I was in awe. I used about 2 1/2 tbs. It melts quickly too. I was again surprised to find that once melted it did not smell of coconut.
The coconut oil heated quickly even though I found it a bit thicker than other oils.
The fish fried to a golden brown and were quite tender.
Now came the real test! The taste!
I tried the first bite. It was delicious. And, once again I was pleasantly surprised to find that it did not taste like coconut. My 5 yr old ate 2 pieces. This is not normal for her. She loved the taste! My husband, ever the skeptic was last. He bit in and exclaimed "Hey this doesn't taste like coconut!"
Needless to say, the whole family approves. It's organic, requires less to cook with than other oils, and doesn't flavor your food. What more could you ask for.
Tropical Traditions has exceeded my expectations. They will exceed yours too. Check them out at
