Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Review and Giveaway

Disclaimer: Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product.

I first discovered coconut oil, a couple of years ago, when I first started my weight loss journey. It has a nice taste and I like to mix in a tablespoon into my morning coffee which tastes better than using cream. I was thrilled to receive a free sample of Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil. It has a superior taste to many of the other brands I have tried. The coconut taste isn’t as strong to me and has a nicer texture. I couldn’t wait to make a batch of popcorn using Tropical Traditions Home Page .

I also learned that coconut oil has a high smoke point which makes it a great oil to use for high temperatures like frying. It is also a great oil to use in my popcorn maker. I like no I LOVE to eat popcorn, and I found a great popcorn called Black Jewel popcorn. It pops into fluffy white kernels and is very tender. It is a new favorite of mine. I began using coconut oil to make my popcorn. It tastes better than using other oils and even butter. It is not greasy but has a nice pleasant flavor. You don’t even taste the coconut at all.


I have a popcorn machine that turns the popcorn in a circle. First I put 2 tbs (tablespoons) of coconut oil in the machine and let it heat up for a few seconds. Then I pour 1 cup of popcorn and put the lid on. Look at the finished product below. It tastes as good as it looks.

I also like to use coconut oil on my lips and on my feet. It keeps my skin feeling so soft. My other favorite beauty tip is to use coconut oil as a deep conditioner for my hair. I put some all over my hair (while it is dry) and then put on a shower cap for 20-30 minutes. Take a shower and wash it out with your favorite shampoo. You will not need a conditioner afterwards. I have thick and slightly coarse and wavy hair and I never need to put in conditioner afterwards. It keeps my hair soft and silky for a few days. I do this treatment about once to twice a month.

  11. i just saw this product in the store yesterday, i wanted to go home, pull up some receipes first, for both body products and for cooking before purchasing.

  12. Jennifer Tzoumas says:

    I use it for cooking, conditioning hair/skin, and bodybuilders/exercise fanatics swear that it helps you lose bodyfat because it is metabolized like a carbohydrate (quickly) instead of being stored in body like a fat. Just be careful to start with only 1-2 T a day and build up, or you may have some gastro distress from it, uh, being metabolized SO quickly!

  15. Leslie Galloway says:
