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.

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 <a href=”http://coconutoil.com” This time, Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil! Shortly after our last product review, this company contacted us and requested that we write a review for them. Naturally we were super excited and agreed. 🙂

Tropical Traditions is a great company with tonnes of products – from food to skin care, household and pet products! Their coconut oil is their main product, however they sell other oils, as well, and if you visit their website, not only can you find more information about their other products, but you can also find lots of awesome recipes.
Back to our review – we REALLY liked this coconut oil! It is soft and creamy, making it very easy to use in a wide variety of dishes, as well as in baking. It has a much more subtle coconut smell than coconut oils we’ve used before, almost with a light toasted smell to it. It has a little bit of texture to it, yet it still remains very smooth and blends into things quite well. When it starts to melt, it lets off that beautiful coconut aroma that we’ve come to love about cooking with coconut oil.

Our “tester recipe” for coconut oil is always sweet potato fries! We look at how crispy the fries turn out, and how flavourful they are. This coconut oil definitely passed the test – the fries turned out perfectly crispy, and the flavour of the coconut oil was nice and light, so that you didn’t feel like you were eating coconut fries with sweet potato oil on them! 😉
For these fries, all we did was toss them in a little bit of the coconut oil (just enough for a light coating) and some salt and pepper, and them baked them at 400 degrees for 20min, then flipped them over for the last 5min. We would have flipped them over sooner, but we didn’t expect them to be done that soon! We had our oven on the convection setting, so they cooked a lot faster!
We dipped them in a Chilly-Cheese Sauce – our Vegan Cheese Sauce with some chilly powder, hot pepper flakes, and a drop of liquid smoke added to it. Mmmmmm – so tasty! 🙂
