I love coconut...coconuts, coconut flavored coffee, coconut dipped in dark chocolate, coconut macaroons, hard-shelled chocolate coconut candy, coconut milk, and flaked coconut, but would I like coconut oil that I have heard so much about? (See my earlier blog post about the uses and benefits of coconut oil HERE). So I decided to give it a test run. But I did not want just any coconut oil. I wanted virgin coconut oil and one that was organic. I had heard about Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil and thought I'd give it a try. I received a sample and have used it a few different ways for myself and for my Siberian Huskies, including using it in their food. Well, it's a huge hit! When I add it to Harley, Gibson, Wolf, Chloe, and Bandit's food, not only do they enjoy their meal, there is a whole lot of bowl licking going on!
Why Tropical Traditions? Here's some other important facts about Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil that really appeals to me:
- No hydrogenation or trans fats

Is There a Difference Between Coconut Oils and Where Can You Buy Tropical Traditions Organic Virgin Coconut Oil?
This coconut oil has such a smooth consistency, it feels very velvety to the touch, and when using it for cooking, it has a wonderfully, delicious light coconut aroma. It's super easy to incorporate into cooking, too. I love whipping up Sunday omelettes for my Sibes using it, and I even dab a bit onto my Huskies food other days of the week.
