Tropical Traditions Review and Giveaway!

I love coconut! Anything that has coconut in it, or on it... I will eat. (well, almost anything!) hehe.
So I was really excited when Tropical Traditions agreed to let me review their shredded coconut! I was quite surprised to receive a whole gallon of it!



Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut is 100% natural coconut made from organic dried coconut from the Philippines. They are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. The premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Unlike most dried coconut on the market, their dried coconut products are not treated with Sulfites to keep them white.

Now all I had to do was decide what to make with it! The possibilities are endless! Tropical Traditions has a great free recipe section on their site that was fun to look through! The first thing I decided to make was the Coconut Meringues! I had never made meringues before, so it was a fun challenge! They came out good! They tasted just coco-nutty enough without being too much. Then I made macaroons... I love macaroons! These were amazing as well!
I am excited to keep trying new recipes... there are so many good sounding things out there!

If you place an order with my referral number with them as a first-time customer, you can get book Virgin Coconut Oil, How it has changed people’s lives and how it can change yours! For Free! If you place an order, please select “Referred by a friend” and then in the box that says “How did you hear of us?” enter my sponsor ID number #6069684. By telling Tropical Traditions that I referred you, you will receive a complimentary copy of the book with your first order!

There is also a very interesting video called “How We Discovered Virgin Coconut Oil – An Interview with Brian Shilhavy, CEO Tropical Traditions” which can be viewed by clicking HERE. Or, you can view it on the Tropical Traditions site by clicking HERE.

If you have never been to the Tropical Traditions site, you should spend some time there checking out the interesting information provided in their About Us section and in their Frequently Asked Questions page. They have an incredible selection of products that can be purchased directly from their site (www.tropicaltraditions.com)

Tropical Traditions has generously offered to send one lucky reader their own Quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!
