Coconut Oil Give Away -



I am going to be able to give away a 32 ounce jar of Coconut Oil to one lucky friend.  I was sent a jar of this Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil.  I will be honest - I do not like coconut - at least the coconut that is in flakes that you use on top of cakes or in candy.  YUCK - it gets in my teeth and never ever comes out. I was  wary.

Anyway I got it and started to use it to fry different things in - the items I would want to fry anyway, but in oil that wasn't so good for you.

My chicken came out so delicious and so beautiful even my grandson ate it - if any one of you know me they will know what a miracle that was.  It was great.  It has so many used - you can bake - fry - make salad dressing - and dips with it.
Now to enter my giveaway - and this is mandatory - you must subscribe to their email sales newsletter. (click here) I have done this myself.  There are some great deals on it and lots of information on how to use the product .   That's all you have to do.  Then leave me a comment that you subscribed to their email sales newsletter. 


The contest will end on 4/17/13 and the winner will be announced on Thursday the 18th.


This is what it looks like . . .

Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil - 32 oz. 

Win 1 quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!

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: What is 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.

I hope you read all about it - it is an extremely interesting product!



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 found even the Mennonites Girls Can Cook use it and make food from it - check it out here:

i love coconut in any or everything to eat and love the smell of it in suntan lotion. that said, i don't cook and would never use it so give it to someone who would. it is a great giveaway.

Munir said...

It is true, everyone else is taken we might as well be ourselves.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I don't care to eat much of it myself. I've got a bottle of the oil, though, and use it when I think about it. It has a lot of health benefits, supposedly. I won't enter since I already have a big bottle of it. Thanks anyway!

Shelly said...

TARYTERRE said...

I use grapeseed oil myself. Coconut sounds interesting. I see you found my Scooter Lady Rides Again quote about being yourself. I snapped that picture on a bad day and suddenly felt energized. It's a good one to share.

Carol said...

Always be yourself!

Charlotte Wilson said...

Sandie, after reading a previous post of yours on coconut oil, i went to the Indian grocery store in the Marshall's shopping center on Barrett Pkwy. I bout a blue plastic bottle of the oil and went I went to use it, it would not come out of the spout. My Indian friend says that it is solid and I will have to warm the bottle in water before it will come out. :(((

I signed up!

Hugs,

charlotte

Donna said...

barbara l. hale said...

LOL. Love the meerkats!

Ginny said...

Well, I don't know that much about the oil, but my, there has been such a controversy over the coconut water! There is coconut stuff everywhere now, milk, yogurt, ice-cream, it is all the rage. Years ago they said it was bad, now they say it is good! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

Cranberry Morning said...

Hi Sandie! I'm very familiar with that company and their products. I use some of them in my homemade soaps! :-)

nancygrayce said...

I've been buying coconut oil from Tropical Traditions for a while now.....and although I don't fry with it....I don't fry at all.....it has many, many uses! I use it on my skin when it's really dry and even on my dogs when they are particularly dry! I have friends that use it in every thing they eat.....it's great stuff!

SweetMarie said...

I did subscribe! :)
And I love being me!!!

hugs,

Bev said...

I signed up for their news letter! We use Coconut Oil..would like to try this kind!! Thanks for the link to the recipe... I get their posts daily...but wouldn't of looked for that recipe!!

veronica said...

I have been wanting to try coconut oil, so this would be a great chance. Thanks for the giveaway.
I subscribed to their newsletter.

Eva Ason said...

What a nice give away. But unfortunately I cannot participate, me being allergic to all types of nuts just makes me careful. Since coconut triggered my allergy many years ago.
Hope you're having a good Thursday, my day is nearly ending going on 9pm.
Hugs,

Eva

Jim said...

Hi Sandie ~~ I like coconut and it doesn't stick in my teeth. I will pass on the contest, but thank you for offering it.

Betsy Brock said...

I've just recently become addicted to coconut oil...but for my hair and skin more than cooking with it. Take 1/4 teaspoon and rub it into your hands. It feels oily for a minute or two, but just wait...it completely soaks in and your hands feel amazing! I put it on the last inch of my long hair as a conditioner in the shower. It's amazing stuff!

Grandma Bonnie said...

Nice review. I use coconut oil all the time. I have never tried Tropical Traditions brand. I subscribed to their news letter.

Merlesworld said...

I 'm not a fan of coconut oil, i do eat it on my cakes and it's in my foot creme but for some reason I don't like the oil to cook with much.

cube said...

When my oldest daughter fell while climbing the roots of a large tree and broke her collarbone, her friend found her by following the coconut smell from the product she had used.

Funny in My Mind said...

I just saw your comment, actually I am back to blogging. Thanks for stopping by!

Sandy said...

I have been subscribing for years now and also using this wonderful coconut oil. This brand is best, in my opinion. Coconut oil is so good and good for you!

Beth said...

I enjoyed it all today!!

Catherine said...

I love coconut - especially covered in chocolate! Haha! But I don't use oil of any kind really.

We use coconut milk on almost everything from cooking to making dessert. I never fry with coconut oil. I must give this a try one day.

Terri said...

My dh buys coconut oil by the gallon buckets- he is a devout believer in it's health benefits. He uses it mostly in his coffee, but I use it to fry with. (I also use it as hand & face lotion...it's fantastic!)

Nancy Claeys said...

Coconut oil is so good in so many recipes! Cookies especially. Great giveaway! Exclamation point! Lol.

Patty said...

I subscribed. I love coconut anything. I love your blue blog header too!

Ann said...

I personally love coconut but Wade hates it and I'm sure that he would refuse to eat anything that was cooked in coconut oil. He's just that way....lol
I have heard this stuff is really good though

silverthoughts2 said...

I subscribed. I'm a sucker for trying new food, especially healthy food.

Terri D. said...

I will sign up, but can tell you that I use coconut oil, and get it from the organic section of our grocery store, Publix. It is a great oil for any use, and is so mild you really could eat it on toast, I think (not that anyone would want to!). Thanks for the link!

Shauna G said...

Thanks for the opportunity to win the oil. I've subscribed to their newsletter. I love tropical traditions coconut oil; I use it as my oil to fry in, my facial/body moisturizer, hair treatment, and most recently to combat my sunburned face, shoulders, and back! I have a bag of the shredded coconut which I made some yummy coconut vanilla muffins with for my birthday last month.

mare ball said...

I love coconut oil! It's very diff than coconut itself. i use it mainly as a cleanser and moisturizer. I'd love the free jar, but don't want the newsletter. :0) I get so much stuff I don't look at, I fear that would be another thing.
