So I really like coconut. In a lot of forms. It’s consumed almost daily in my household. I drink coconut milk daily…sometimes out of the can…sometimes by the spoonful…really any way I drink it as quick as possible. This leads to stomach aches at times, but totally worth it. I also cook with coconut oil A LOT. Bake with it. Saute with it. Whatever need be, I have it on hand. I eat coconut flakes. Sometimes shredded coconut…that can just get messy. I don’t even want to get into what my kitchen floor corners look like. Dear lord. And I chow down on coconut butter, like a lot. I just made some chocolate coconut butter the other night. Coconut is the coolest thing in the world. Hands down. Don’t you dare fight me.

So when I was given the opportunity to review Tropical Traditions Golden Label Virgin Coconut Oil, I couldn’t have been happier. This stuff is AWESOME. Seriously hands down the best coconut oil I’ve ever tried. And believe me, I’ve consumed A LOT of coconut oil in my day. And it comes in a HUGE 1 quart jar so it lasts for.ever. It’s fantastic. I don’t have to worry about buying it on a weekly basis at the store anymore!

But what really gets me going, what really makes my world go round, and somehow gets me sitting on the kitchen floor with spoon and jar in hand is the Coconut Cream Concentrate. Some of you may know this stuff by the name of coconut butter. Same diff. Diff name. Stop being confused. It’s stupid good. Like OMG I want to have Coconut Cream Concentrate’s babies. That’s a lie. I hate babies. Except my friend Jenn’s baby. I took a picture with her today. She never stops smiling. Babies who don’t cry are awesome. Anywho, the coconut cream concentrate is pure awesomeness in a jar. It’s kind of the texture of nut butter but with an even more satisfying feel because of it’s awesome saturated fat component. You can have 2 spoonfuls of this stuff and be stuffed. Or you can be me and have 8…but that would just mean you’re awesome. And a badass. If you have never tried this stuff, get it. ASAP. And experience what love is. Guess I know what I’m doing on Valentine’s Day.

Check out their products! They have every kind of coconut product under the sun and all these products are super high quality! And be sure to check out their coconut recipe page! Not all paleo, but a ton of great ideas!!

And hey, don’t forget to check back later. I will absolutely have a rant AND a recipe waiting for you!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. My boyfriend judges me for how fast I can consume a jar of coconut butter ( or as I affectionately call it – “Coco butta”) but I don’t care because it is SOOOO GOOOD!! Tropical traditions is the bomb, and all the love you need for a fab Valentine’s Day.

      1. I have used it as face lotion for a year, I think it has helped with my acne. I also saw someone talking about using it as deodorant when mixed with cornstarch, I tried that but it stained my shirts for life with grease marks which I personally think is worse then just smelling like sh*t.

        1. Good to know Amy, I used coconut oil on my face last night…I’m worried that if I use it in the morning, my face will be greasy throughout the day…

  2. last night i dropped a jar of melted coconut oil while making pseudo-larabars. all over me. destroyed my kitchen. there was a moment there where i thought of not liking coconut. until i realized i would just rub it in and be silky smooth and smell delicious. problem solved.

    wanted to hate your blog but ended up falling into cocolove. going to order some butter now. (i needs some new PRs next week.)

    1. you wanted to hate my blog?!?! please do not do that. please and thank you. and i’ve definitely dropped a balls ton of coconut oil. its not a fun moment, at all. wasted coconut oil is worth shedding a tear over

      1. only because you are tanner than me and its the a$$crack of winter. but your sarcasm and nut butters won me over. thanks for all the ideas and keep ’em comin!

  3. Oh God. Not another coconut butter to try! OK, you twisted my arm. I had CB for the first time about two months ago. We’re in love and getting married.

  4. Coconut is my favorite thing EVER. In all forms. I had no idea there was so much coconut amazingness before I went Paleo! Now I eat it every day. I haven’t tried the Gold Label yet, though, bc I didn’t know if it was worth the price difference from the Green Label…have you tried both of them? I have a gallon AND a quart of the Green Label right now, so it’ll be a while ’til I can try it. lol

  5. I am obsessed with (you) r blog. And possibly slightly more obsessed with coconut. I love reading your blog coz it makes me feel like I am not alone in the world with the copious amounts of (awesome) food I consume. If you were wondering why your blog had a bizillion views today it’s coz I read it the whole 2 hours of my bus ride home- God bless technology ( when I can actually figure out how to use it)!

  6. Your love of coconut butter leaves me with a scene from Striptease. Where Burt Reynolds has covered himself in Vasoline and speaks on how good it feels, squishing in his boots. …You just eat it, right?

  7. i definitely buy my coconut oil by the gallon – gold label goes on sale here and there. i just wait, then pounce. i also mix the coconut cream with other nut butters for a little fun. or with cocoa, b/c everything with chocolate is good.

      1. Don’t microwave coconut products! Microwaving will damage the healthful properties and destroy the good fats it contains. Instead, place the jar in very hot water.
        I enjoyed your article!

  8. Not sure where this has been all my life, but it needs to be in my life statsies. It was shipped out yesterday and I can’t wait for my first date with it.

    Coconut in any form is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. 🙂 Thanks for the heads up!

  9. Tropical Traditions is out of the coconut cream concentrate, any other source? Or can i substitute something for it? I want to make your chocolate coconut bark?

    Btw totally LOVE your blog! I have made two recipes off of it so far and both have been DROOL worthy!

  10. Hi there, since this is an old post I don’t know if you will see my question, but I’m wondering, how do you keep the Tropical Traditions coconut cream warm enough all the time so that you don’t have to go through the whole process of warming and mixing the whole jar again? I bought a jar of it, and I went through the process of warming the jar in a bowl of hot water, then mixing it, but it just solidified and separated again, so I never use it. I just don’t have time to go through that whole thing over again each time I want to use a bit of it. The only thing the company told me was that it stays soft and mixed over 76 degrees, but that’s too hot a temperature to keep my house all the time.

    1. oh man, i wish there was a better answer than warming it in a jar in hot water, but that’s truly the best way! it’s definitely frustrating and annoying, though.
