free peanut butter, anyone?

in giveaway

Lately, I’ve talked a bit about foods I really just don’t like.

Olives, mushrooms, grapefruit + cantaloupe? Sure, feed them to me if you want me to bang on the table in a three-year-old toddler’s act of defiance and refuse to eat (and perhaps scream) until palatable food is put before me.

Coconut? This one is a bit trickier.

I want to like coconut. Coconut butter, coconut milk, coconut oil, coconut peanut butter, coconut cupcakes, coconut on oatmeal, pina coladas…I DID like coconut. It seems as though after five or so good years of living in coconut lover’s paradise, my tastebuds seem to have reverted back to their childhood ways: coconut is officially still making me gag.

It’s a travesty, I know.

It’s almost as sad as finding a renegade gray hair on the crown of my head this week and getting paid yesterday, only to have 1/2 my paycheck gone in a matter of four bills.

However, while I will be working on making my apartment a coconut-free zone this weekend (and scouring my hairline for grays), you, my friends, have the chance to enhance your lives with the chance to win a free jar of Tropical Traditions coconut peanut butter!

Don’t let my distaste for coconut throw you off – this peanut butter is delicious. Just ask Elise. Or Gabriela. Or Averie. Or Matt.

My point? People LOVE this stuff.

Here’s what you must do for the chance to win:

  1. Leave a comment telling me one food you wish you liked (my answer: coconut).
  2. You can submit an additional entry by subscribing to Tropical Traditions newsletter, which sends out free weekly product specials, recipes and more, and leaving a 2nd comment letting me know you did so.

Contest ends Monday night when I blog and announce the winner.

Just promise me if you win, I live (and eat coconut) vicariously through you.

I wish I liked seafood, and more specifically lobster. People always tell me I’m missing out, but it just doesn’t do it for me. :( However, I LOVE coconut!!!

I really wish I liked cilantro. It’s in so many things I love (hello, chipotle guac) but I am not a fan no matter how many times I try it.

I wish that I liked cooked asparagus leftovers. I always have to eat all of the asparagus the same day!

I wish I liked beef or pork, both can look so yummy!
