Coconut oil has been a staple in our pantry for about a dozen years.
Maybe even longer...
Over the course of those years, we've tried several different brands of coconut oil.
the consistent winner
is the Nutiva brand.
(I also have a very clear winner for absolutely the worst tasting coconut oil - which I'd be happy to share with you if you ask, but it doesn't seem right to post it here.)
The best price is usually a 2 pack of 54oz jars at Amazon,
and you can save a few more bucks by setting it up as a subscribe and save item.
If you find you aren't ready for more when it comes time for them to make another shipment,
you simply cancel or postpone the delivery.
Sometimes, Nutiva will have a sale and you can get a gallon for $50.
I stock up.
Coconut oil is good for a couple of years, so I don't worry about it going bad.
If you think it'd take forever for you to go through that much oil,
the Better Body brand from Sam's is pretty decent, too.
But I gotta be honest;
I opened a gallon of Nutiva today,
after finishing off a container of the BB stuff,
and that's what prompted this post.
But then, I do have superior taste buds... ;-)
