Tropical Traditions Organic Shredded Coconut Review and Giveaway...

Congrats to Gianna!

We recently had the chance to review the Organic Shredded Coconut from Tropical Traditions.


About Tropical Traditions Organic Shredded Coconut:
"Tropical Traditions 100% natural Shredded Coconut is made from organic dried coconuts in the Philippines that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Unlike most dried coconut on the market, our dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white. They are a great addition to recipes and baking, or just for snacks! The Shredded Coconut is a very small cut, suitable for baking, such as making macaroons." 

What we thought:  Yet another fabulous product from Tropical Traditions...the Shredded Coconut!  This cocnut is super-fine and worked great for coconut cookies and coconut shrimp.  We usually use coconut in baked goods...cookies, bars, candies, etc and the shredded coconut would work great for all of these!  The first batch of cookies I made were gone within a few hours, so you know they had to have been pretty tasty:)  Even B, who doesn't eat many sweets devoured them.  My sister's bf doesn't even like coconut and he loved the cookies.  We are super excited to be able to experiment a little more with coconut in the kitchen and it's great to know that our shreds are natural, organic and not treated with sulfites.  This really gives them a superior flavor.  ABCD Diaries gives Tropical Traditions Organic Shredded Coconut an A+!
