Tropical Traditions Coconut Review + Giveaway

I've expressed multiple times how much I adore this company! I had the opportunity to try Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut recently. I was really excited as this is the time of year that I really kick up my baking.

This is not sweetened, flaked coconut! I've never seen anything like this at my grocery. Instead of being strands of coconut that have been coated in sugar, this coconut is the real deal. This is pure coconut, finely shredded (each piece is about half the size of a grain of rice) and dried. Tropical Traditions coconut is the closest thing to fresh coconut that I've come across. I don't recommend using it as a snack alone. The consistency of the coconut is a bit dusty so that it could lead to choking. We found many wonderful uses for it where it far exceeded store bought flaked coconut. My favorite recipe consisted of me adding a few tablespoons to my morning smoothie. Delicious and healthy! I can't wait to make a coconut pie for Thanksgiving!


One lucky winner will win their own bucket of Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
