Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter Review & GIVEAWAY!

The lovely folks from Tropical Traditions recently sent me a jar of their Organic Coconut Peanut Butter. They asked me to try it out and then (if I liked it) give one away!

From Tropical Traditions:
"Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Peanut Butter is made from organic peanuts and organic coconut. Two ingredients: nothing else! No fillers, no binders, no sweeteners, and no preservatives." {source}
My thoughts?

THE GOOD:
The flavor is divine. I was worried that the coconut would make it gritty, but this is not the case at all. I haven't tried any fancy recipes with it yet, but my kids are loving it on their toast.

THE BAD:
The consistency is very runny. I was expecting something akin to normal peanut butter, but on the shelf it's much closer to a liquid than a spread. Keeping it in the fridge seems to have combated the problem, though.

OVERALL:
I would give this product a solid one and a half thumbs up. I plan on using it to make peanut sauce for my Vietnamese summer rolls sometime soon. I'm thinking the coconut will add a great flavor dimension!
