Tropical Traditions Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



That's right! Another item from the infamous Tropical Traditions. This time we received Coconut Peanut Butter.



I have to admit, this is one product we've received from Tropical Traditions that I'm not so happy with. The consistency is okay, but the taste isn't that great. I like my peanut butter to taste like you know... Peanuts. This tastes like coconut.
And the consistency is kind of hard to spread thanks for the coconut oil that hardens in cooler temps. We keep our house at 65-70, so it gets hard.

BUT Avery has been eating it. I stick to my homemade peanut butter, but she likes it!

They do come in glass jars though and it is healthier then regular peanut butter because of the coconut oil AND that the Oil and Peanuts are the only 2 ingredients. It's also organic. Other than that, I wasn't too happy!!

Price: 16oz jar is $9.99 down from $14.99 and the 26oz is $15.45 down from $24.35

Overall: *** for effort!! If someone likes coconut they would like this. We're just not a huge coconut family.
