We are so excited to announce the winner of our Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Giveaway.
If you’re familiar with Tropical Traditions then you know how awesome this company is. If you’re not, let me tell you a few really cool things about this company. Though they carry lots of different products, one really great thing about their gold label coconut oil is that, because it is hand made (thousands of gallons made by hand!), they employ hundreds of people in their rural farming communities. For me that’s the coolest part. It would have been easier for them to ship their coconuts to a plant and create an expeller pressed coconut oil that is really popular in North America (and they do), but they chose to keep the integrity of their most prized product and as a result created jobs and a prosperous community. YOU GOTTA LOVE THAT!
The other important information you need to know is that it’s non-GMO, organic and no chemical solvents are used. They use fresh coconuts that are processed within 24 hours of being picked and the product is unrefined. This brings me to my second favorite fact, which is that it has twice the antioxidants than other coconut oils on the market. Probably because they are processed so quickly after being picked. Their products aren’t cheap, not in the way they are made, nor in price either, but they are yummy!
So congratulations to Jen Berry for winning a 32 oz jar of this amazing product! We’ve sent you an email requesting your shipping information. I hope you’ll try making Our Irresistible Coconut Oil Chocolates!
There will not not be a TV Tuesday episode this week but we will be back next Tuesday!
