Certified 100% Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Best Value, Bar None
My dad uses coconut oil a lot and buys very expensive brands. We did a taste test comparison between this oil and two brands costing 3x as much. We both agreed that this oil is the equal of the expensive brands. Now he's saving $150 per year on coconut oil!

I've tried other coconut oils but they had a strong, almost overpowering taste.
Your extra virgin coconut oil is incredible! I take a tablespoon several times a day, use it on toast and to cook eggs. It tastes light, pure, delicious.
And yours costs about 70% less than a much advertised competitor. This is an excellent product and I will be reordering it.

Best Coconut Oil
This is my favorite organic coconut oil. It isn't as hard as some brands I've tried, and the price is much better! I use coconut oil in place of other oils in stir fries, and inplace of butter or shortening in baking. The coconut flavor is light, and compliments dishes.

I have bought other coconut oil before from my local food stores and when I cooked using those the food did not taste that good! I really did not want to eat and as it had added some unpleasant smell to it... but I decided to try Swanson's coconut oil and can tell you that it is really great! Also, I like that the jar has a wide opening as it is much easier to get the oil out...

Love Coconut Oil
I could not love this product anymore! I recently began using it and have found out the many uses for organic coconut oil. I use it to cook, for my skin, lips and beauty routine. I recently used it to make wild atlantic salmon and it came out moist and delicious! I also use it as a weekly treatment for my hair and it leaves it soft and shiny. I use it to remove eye makeup, cheap and effective! I use it for my skin and I carry a little container around for my dry lips in the wintertime.I use it to smooth out rough cuticles. I have yet to bake with it but I am sure that will be fantastic as well. I purchased two jars and will stock up on some more with a coupon. I highly recommend this, try it you wont be disappointed!

Very good product not only for the price I paid, but for the overall quality. It tastes good and works very well when combined with my hair products. I will put some in my hair overnight and it leave my hair soft, supple, and non greasy *when washed out* the next day. I even give my dog a little bit here and there to help with her coat. She loves it as it is organic, virtually flavorless and is good for her.

This will be a good choice when looking for a tasty, oil for stir frying, oven frying and in smoothies! I like it and wasn't sure if I would or not. This WILL be the Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Love this for my skin
Even though it's solid below a certain temp. it is easy to soften in my hands to smooth over my face and skin all over my body. I love the gentle coconut smell, and the way it makes my skin feel soft and moisturized without feeling too oil. It's wonderful as a skin moisturizer and massage cream. I love it!

I liked It
Very mild flavor / taste. A good value. Larger containers would be nice as I go through this size jar rather quickly. I purchased two with my most recent purchase and I am already well into my second jar, so I will probably run out before I am ready to place my next order.

I was disappointed in the taste. It had a mild taste of coconut. I have been using other brands that had a very strong coconut flavor. I like coconuts, so the stronger the better.

Swanson Organic CNO
The best quality coconut oil comes from the Philippines or Thailand in my experience. Swanson's is from the Philippines with a light coconut scent & a pure white color in solid form. It's crystal clear & as colorless as water when melted & examined in a drinking glass (my personal quality test). Some CNO appears white when solid but once you melt it, you see that nasty yellow tinge that means you've got a inferior quality CNO. I've paid as much as $16.00 for a 16-oz. jar of CNO in the local health food store. Whole Foods sells a comparable quality CNO from the Philippines for $7.00 per 16-oz.jar. Swanson's is only $6.00 for the same size container. It's THE BEST CNO I've found so far & the best bargain! My only complaint is that they should sell it in glass jars instead of plastic. Plastic is a petroleum product & we all need to use less of those. Quality food oils should be kept in glass, not plastic, to protect their flavor & integrity. (You neve see virgin olive oil being sold in a plastic container in the supermarket, do you?)

Great product from Swanson, great price and love ordering from Swanson, I ordered and received my product in a day and a half. Amazing

Not wanting to eat this plain, I came up with an idea for getting my daily "chocolate fix." I put about 1 T. in a bowl, added a spoonful of your organic cocoa (I did not measure anything), a good squirt of raw honey, and a shake of the NOW Stevia extract, then stirred it all together. Yummm! Probably even a drop of vanilla would have been good in it also. I thought of mixing up a larger bowl just for convenience, but then again, I know what would happen, as I don't have a lot of will power at times! Really glad I bought this. Swanson has so many things at really good prices, they ship quickly and everything is just wonderful.

You have to really like coconut
I've used this for cooking just a few things, but I cannot get past the coconut smell and taste in everything that I've tried. I like that it's good for us, and it is a quality product, but personally, I just don't like coconut enough to add this flavor to everything I cook. It may be very good in cookies!

This oil tastes so good. It has a much stronger coconut flavor than I expected. That being said, you need to think about what foods you will use it with. Makes my veggies taste weird but it is great on other things. I also use it on my english muffins. It works well as a moisturizer too.

Love the coconut oil. I use it for cooking & baking as well as putting it on my skin & hair. I also eat a tablespoon each day. It has a wonderful coconut taste & adds extra flavor to cakes, cookies etc.

I and my husband have been using this product for a month now. I have tried another brand and it was real bad tasting so I quit all together than my sister told me about this and we decided to try it. We love its great taste! We quit buying butter and use this instead. I love it for my popcorn. We make it the old fashion way and the cocnut oil leaves a great taste on it. I just but sea salt on it and eat. Aslo we use it on our toast for a great spread. I will ONLY use this produce. Love the price too!

This is a very nutritious oil like extra virgin olive oil. However, it does not lose nutrients when heated so it is the perfect cooking oil. It is also a great inexpensive healthy lubricant.

I decided to start trying Coconut Oil because of one Dr. Oz show on tv. I use it to cook with instead of butter and my wife puts it on her face at night, and I have even tried that as well. You don't really taste it when you cook with it and it does seem to help the skin, and is probably better than using lotions. I have tried one cheaper store brand that was not as good, so I will stick with the organic version here at Swanson. Don't know what the long term effects will be since I have only been using it for a few months, but I will write another review later this year, so check back.

I have bought 3-4 different coconut oils and this is the best. It starts with the aroma and ends with flavor. I love cooking with it or just mixing it with ground flax seeds, cinnamon and stevia.

A Coconut Addict
I've been using coconut oil, since I first heard of its so called miraculous benefits back in the year 2007, and since trying it, I just never plan to be without this amazing oil. It even multi-tasks as a cooking oil, a butter substitute for baking, or spreading on bagels/english muffins (which ive found tastier than regular fatty butter) and especially as a skin saving moisturizer. I feel like it's keeping my skin's youthful luster and makes my skin so so soft to the touch. I would trade the most expensive renowned commercial moisturizer for coconut oil mixed with abit of aloe gel.
I will continue to order this for the rest of my life on Earth from Swanson, and they always ship expediently to me. They offer the cheapest top quality brand of coconut oil I've come across. Im an addict now.

Coconut oil is great for frying steaks or fish. It doesn't burn or smoke adn gives the food a nice flavour .
