Tropical Traditions was nice enough to send me a quart size jar of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil to test and review. I have to say, delicious!
Over the years I have tried many different brands of coconut oil. For this test, I was comparing the Tropical Traditions brand, to the following other brands. Golden Barrel, Nutiva, and Louana. The Golden Barrel tasted dull and lifeless to me, the Louana was a little bit better, but still nothing to write home about, the Nutiva was really good, and the Tropical Traditions was phenomenal!
I also have to add that the appearance of the Tropical Traditions coconut oil is entirely different than the others. It is much easier to melt, it’s creamier in texture, and is overall much more appealing to me.
After tasting these, I decided to cook with the Tropical Traditions brand. Not only did the oil penetrate the food, it gave it a wonderful flavor as well. I was really surprised by how much of the coconut flavor this oil retains, compared to the other brands. You definitely get what you pay for quality wise with this product. In hind sight, I almost feel badly about using some of it to cook with (because of the really high quality), and I will probably save the rest of it for usage in smoothies, and other recipes that I want a nice hint of coconut flavor in.
Overall this is an excellent quality product. I will definitely purchase this in the future.
