Tropical Traditions Review and Giveaway!

I love coconut! I am sure you know that from the last review I did...hehe.
So I was really excited when Tropical Traditions agreed to let me review another one of their great products! They sent me a jar of their coconut peanut butter! yum!


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!

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! Unfortunately, I didn't really see much using the coconut peanut butter, so I improvised. I made coconut peanut butter cookies! They came out super yummy! So good, that I even submitted my recipe to the site! (hopefully they will publish it!)

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 Jar of Coconut peanut butter!
