Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil review and giveaway!


I love coconut oil. Not only does it taste amazing, but it has a myriad of health benefits. You can also use it as lotion or mix it with sugar for a great scrub. One of my favorite things is to use it as bath oil, which makes for very soft skin.

I was excited to try Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil this week. I was very impressed with their product, and I was also pleased to learn that Tropical Traditions is the only brand on the market that is not mass produced by machine – they prefer to have it produced by hand on small family farms.

I used this coconut oil to make my very favorite sandwich, which I’ve dubbed the “Candy Bar Sandwich.” While it’s not low in fat, it does provide some great health benefits!

Candy Bar Sandwich


2 slices wheat bread

1 Tbsp. virgin Coconut Oil

1 Tbsp Nutella

Take bread and heat in microwave for 15 seconds. Spread Nutella on one slice of bread and coconut oil on the other. Put together as a sandwich and microwave for an additional 15 seconds or so, until coconut oil has melted. Eat and enjoy!

Right now Tropical Traditions has their pint-sized coconut oil on sale for $19.95, marked down from $25, and their quart-sized jars on sale for $29.50, marked down from $40! They also have their coconut oil hair treatment (like lotion for your hair) on sale for $9.99 (regularly $25)!

Tropical Traditions is giving one Thrifty Christy reader a 32-oz jar of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil! Here’s how to enter to win:

Sneakpeaq: get a FREE pearl ring ($65 value) plus a free $10 credit. deal idea: 2 packages of quinoa for $1 each, ships free!

Sneakpeaq is a new deal site that I’ve heard a lot about from other blogs, but I haven’t heard of any deals that were enticing enough for me to sign up – until today! Go here to sign up for a Sneakpeaq account and you’ll get a FREE pearl ring – a $65 value! Plus – and this is the deal that really got me – you’ll get a $10 credit which will make the above packages of quinoa just $2, with FREE shipping! (You can find them under the “Taste” tab.) I love quinoa, and my kids do to (although that may have something to do with the fact that I’ve convinced them it’s kind of like rice.) Here’s more info:

Quinoa, the “mother of all grains,” is packed with nutrition and it’s easy to prepare.  You can try Wholesome Kitchen’s delicious already-seasoned quinoa at over 85% off!  The TWO-PACKs retail for $15, but your price is only $2 with your FREE $10 NEW MEMBER CREDIT!  How can you say no to flavor like Herbs & Lemon Quinoa + Fruits & Nuts Quinoa?  SHIPS FREE!

Do you think it’s hilarious that I’m more excited about the quinoa than I am about the pearl ring? 🙂
