Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter, A Review

Coconut and peanut butter?!
Brilliant!
Why didn’t I think of that? Really.
Two of my most favorite foods in the world have to be coconut and peanut butter. My love of coconut started with my mom's brownies, which are never totally complete without being topped with shredded coconut. And, of course, continues with living in the islands where coconut is a staple. 
Peanut butter, well, that’s another dish.  My Swedish grandmother lovingly passed down her habit of eating peanut butter straight out of the jar with a spoon, and the habit has now attached itself to four generations. Thanks, Grams. :)
She loves it so much you would have believed she thought it was a spoonful of peanut butter a day that kept the doctor away, not an apple. 
Seriously.
Combining coconut and peanut butter was not something I had even thought of until I saw Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter.
Then, you know, the food-lover in me got all excited…
And it tastes as good as it sounds!
The flavors balance each other out perfectly, and the taste is crazy addicting.
My kids loved it. I stole their sandwiches when they weren’t looking, and I keep sneaking spoonfuls… we’ll stop the confessions there…
It’s organic (you know I dig that), and the only ingredients are coconut and peanuts!
They don’t add sugar, and it really doesn’t need it.
Awesomeness in a jar, I’m telling you. It comes in glass jars, and is packed really well.
Tropical Traditions has many organic coconut products available (check out Lisa’s Virgin Coconut Oil review), and I am excited to get my hands on more of them! They also have a great stock of recipes that will open up your mind to much more coconut-ty cooking creativeness!
My family and I really enjoyed the Coconut Peanut Butter Granola recipe, and I had to come up with a version of Chicken Satay with Coconut Peanut Sauce on my food blog. Check it out here
I couldn’t help it. 
Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter really is an exciting thing to find in your cupboard!
It can be purchased at HERE and comes in 16 oz. and 26 oz. jars.
