I almost bought another brand on amazon because of free shipping, but glad I didn't because other brands come in plastic jars. I think glass jars keeps better. The oil I bought a year ago still smells the same. And if you buy at their site, you'll sometimes come across special offers like buy one get one free. Also, their site has interesting info such as why there's no such thing as extra virgin coconut oil. I bought several jars and gave one to my mom and my best friend's mom. That's how much I love this stuff. Just bought 6 more jars today so I won't run out. Planning to give away some jars to friends too.
Gold Label Coconut Oil is made by a very unique process. Most other brands of organic coconut oil I've used have been cold expeller pressed in a machine that squeezes the oil from the coconut while controlling the temperature so it doesn't heat up and "cook" the oil. The Gold Label coconut oil is made by hand. From the Tropical Traditions website:
"The fresh coconut meat is shredded (wet milled), and then cold-pressed using the water from inside the coconuts to make coconut milk. The milk is then allowed to sit for about half a day, while the oil naturally separates from the heavier water. The oil is then filtered from the curds (coconut solids)."

I give this oil extra credit because it's a unique product -- I don't know of any other coconut oil being sold which is made by hand using traditional methods. But I don't think the flavor will be to everyone's taste.
The last time I ordered, remembering how pleased I had been earlier, I place one for 24 jars. The jars had changed, however- the lids were no longer screw-on but the cheap twist-on kind.
From the moment I opened every one of them I was greeting by an unpleasant, stale odor and the only time I found the product palatable was when it was melted on vegetables.
I really do think that the lids are the problem; again, the great aroma used to disappear after several days, leaving the problem somewhat similar to the fresh opening of the present jars used that have the cheaper lids. But, again, it took awhile for the taste to become as poor as it has become upon opening. The dates of manufacture were fresh, so that wasn't the issue.
I have a feeling that maybe those who like the product might have been lucky to have gotten a batch within a very short time of its production; either that, or they have a poor sense of smell.
While my eyesight and hearing leave a lot to be desired, my olfactory sense is still great and I know "stale" when I smell it. If the product were to be actually rancid, then, of course, it would be very unhealthful. I haven't had any burning at the back of the throat, as is so often experienced with rancidity, so maybe stale is the worst it's been, but this isn't healthful, either.
I wish everybody would call Tropical Traditions to ask them to get the old. superior jars back! And the previous jars are great for leftover food.Read more ›
When the two jars arrived, my curiousity could not be contained and I had to open one and smell it. Bingo, it smells. It smells like wood smoke, or hickory sea salt. I asked others to smell it and they all said the same thing about the smoky aroma. I took some on a spoon and tasted it, interestingly enough there is no smoky taste to it. It tasted more like a cross between coconut oil and dairy butter----different than I'm used to. I used it to cook some eggs in and was totally happy with how they came out. No off taste to me, and I'm super sensitive to off flavors and odors.
However I'm in the minority around here. I put some on a spoon and had my husband taste it, he grimaced and asked, "WHAT IS THAT S__T?!?!?!" and spit it out. He didn't notice anything 'off' about the eggs though, so I think for him eating it straight is what did it. He didn't even bat an eye at the eggs, and normally he complains if they taste coconutty from the Nutiva oil.
I won't buy this particular TT product again because the price is way outside of the uses I'll have for it....Read more ›
