With the recent holidays, I knew I was going to have some baking to do. I thought making a coconut cake would be a good idea for my husband and father. For two people which have everything, it is hard to find them just the right gift. This year, I chose to bake them a home-made coconut cake for their Christmas gift. Santa must have known I was out of coconut. That same day, I received a package from Tropical Traditions with the shredded coconut I have been waiting for. The cake turned out wonderful, and the reviews by the men were out of this world. After that kind of reception, I decided to go through the sites’ recipes, and I chose to make macaroons, which were surprisingly easy to make and so yummy. I have more baking to do, and with five boys in this house, they can put away some food.

Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut
The bucket the coconut comes in is great because it has a snug fit. I believe the product will stay fresh longer, and you will be able to reuse it at a later time. Being organic is always a plus in my book. It is also not sweetened with extra sugars which keeps it’s natural flavor. The kids or the adults did not even notice. I was a bit disappointed as the coconut was more on the granular side, but overall I enjoyed it and it was great for baking. For people who don’t like long strands will like the granular. There are three different styles the coconut comes in: shredded, flaked and chips.
For the one-gallon pail, 3.5 lbs, the price is $25.00. Not only will you find a wide range of products to choose from; they also have recipes for just about everything they sell. Other products you can find at their website are Coconut Oil, laundry detergent, and even massage oils. Check out Tropical Traditions on Twitter and Facebook.
