We have always gotten unrefined coconut oil from Mountain Rose Herbs...at $39 a gallon. Just went to re-order and the cost is up to $69 a gallon...what gives??!? Does anyone know if coconut oil costs are up everywhere? Anyone aware of deals/steals for unrefined CO?
Where do you get unrefined coconut oil for cooking? We generally use it unheated, or just gently melted, but sometimes fry with it; taste is important to us. Hit me with your recommendations, please!
I noticed that, too.... Crazy. The unrefined didn't go up (I use that in soaps), so I wonder what the thing is?
I wouldn't eat anything other than organic and unrefined coconut oil, so I'll continue to buy from MRH. Between DH and I we go through about 3 gallons a year, so it's not that big of an investment. And MRH is a great company to support. I know I save lots of money elsewhere, so I don't feel too terribly about it. Quite a price hike, though.
Vitacost sells virgin organic coconut oil for $20 for a 54 ounce container. 25% off right now with coupon code EMAUGNV and free shipping on orders over $49. I've just bought it for the first time, and it seems nice.
