Thrifty and Frugal Living: Ended- Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway of Virgin Coconut Oil

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Ended- Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway of Virgin Coconut Oil


Product Information:
Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Peanut Butter is made from organic peanuts and organic coconut. Two ingredients: nothing else! No fillers, no binders, no sweeteners, and no preservatives. The peanuts are 100% organic Valencia peanuts grown organically by family farmers in New Mexico and Texas. Grown in the dry climate of the southwestern United States, these peanuts are certified organic and free from aflatoxins. The dried coconut is certified organic coconut meat from the Philippines from coconuts that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Unlike most dried coconut on the market, our dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white. Together, these premium organic roasted peanuts and the premium organic dried coconut are ground together to make a delicious and nutritious spread! 

My Review: 
With my first bite of the Coconut Peanut Butter it tasted a little strong. The second bite however, was delicious! You can still taste the peanuts, but it has a coconut taste also. I was surprised that it tastes so good with only 2 ingredients. I thought it might not taste sweet enough, but it does. I wanted to do more with the peanut butter than just eat it out of the jar, so I went to the Tropical Traditions website. They have some great recipes on there including Coconut Peanut Butter Meltaways. These look really good. I decided that I am going to make Buckeyes with them instead. I grew up in Northern Kentucky and Buckeyes are one of my favorite treats around the Holidays. Since I don't have my Mom around to make them anymore, I rarely get them. Coconut Buckeyes would be delicious! I was trying to make them before this review, but I have been too busy recently. I will share them (or at least pictures of them) with you as soon as I make them.

It seems like every blog I have visited has a recent coconut recipe and I want to get busy, but I need to place an order right away. I would love to also win the coconut oil. I am buying the shredded coconut to make the macaroons and the coconut cream to make coconut milk and the peanut butter to eat straight from the jar. I just subscribed to TT. Thanks, tamijo4@yahoo.com

I learned that this guy is a born-again christian and so I am more than happy to support his family and all those families in the Phillipines who help him to make this fabulous coconut oil! I'm also happy to say, that since I switched from canola oil to coconut oil for cooking, not only are my kids getting greatly nourished more than ever, they actually love the flavor of my food more! I cooked 17 eggs this morning with nothing but coconut oil, it comes out perfect, delicious and healthy. All 4 of my kids actually love to eat eggs now! Every last bit was eaten! That extra fatty and good-for-them oil makes it taste even better than ever! I used to use milk in the eggs to make them fuffy...no more, this is THE way to go!! This is now my #1 way to get them to eat their healthy protein and fats.
