Here is my comparison.
Freshness- This item arrived with an expiration date of 3/2013, which is eleven months from delivery. I wish I knew what the exp date was on the TT brand - but it lasted me well over a year on my shelf and I believe that since they harvest the Coconut (they are primarily a coconut products company) it may have been fresher.
Price- I buy the Tropical Traditions in the plastic 3.5 gallon pail, which I buy online when it is half price at $17.50, which costs about $5 a lb.
I decided to compare it to Bob's Red Mill which I researched and felt was probably the highest quality on Amazon, so I got it with the Subscribe n Save, so I saved a little more. Without the Subscribe n Save, Bob's Mill has free shipping and currently comes to $4.38 a lb. I think Bob's Mill is priced well for what you are getting.
Shred size- is very close - but the Bob's Red Mill is slightly larger. I felt that the Tropical traditions was just a little too small for my taste. It "disappeared" in my cooking and oatmeal and I never got to enjoy the crunch or the chew of it, only able to enjoy the flavor and smell.
Dryness- both were equally dry and felt very similar.
Aroma- the Tropical Traditions won hands down here. The Bob's Mills smelled fresh enough, just a very mild slightly toasted smell. But the Tropical traditions has a much stronger sweet coconut smell (it is NOT a sweetened coconut product) which I find very appealing.Read more ›
No surprises with the product. It is dried, finely shredded coconut just as advertised. Because it is so fine it tends to scatter around if you are using it to coat nut balls or truffles, and the kitchen looks like the recipe directions said: "First take one teaspoon of coconut and sprinkle it evenly over counter and floor"............ :)
I also use it to make coconut milk and that sure beats the heck out of buying a fresh coconut and going through the whole long process that I used to do years ago. It is great to be able to have just the amount of coconut milk I need at any given time without the unhealthy vegetable gums that come in all of the canned coconut milk I've seen.

Close to what I expecited, but a rather subdued COCONUT flavor. Flakes malleable when opening bag, but rather hard when refrigerated after opening (per instructions). Read morePublished 2 days ago by Johnny A. Large
I love this shredded coconut. Can be used many ways, but my favorite is a spoon full in my morning oatmeal!Published 5 days ago by Ruth Ann
It's hard to find unsweetened coconut in stores, and since I use it so often, it's easier to buy online and in bulk. I use it in smoothies, baking, and in oatmeal. Love it!Published 6 days ago by Javo
It's freakin delicious! No added sugar, and a brand that I often use for my fancy keto baking. Made keto (low carb high fat) almond joy bars the other day. Yummo!!Published 6 days ago by Masha
