I know that, Kayelle! Now to rub in a piece of fresh pineapple and rinse with a bit of rum....

Fairly neutral...the Extra virgin has a slight coconut taste/smell, the LouAna brand is neutral.

I like to use the extra virgin in my morning oatmeal, give it that little bit of coconut flavor.

I love coconut oil, except, it is always solid (I was told to keep it in the fridge). The next time I buy some (and I promise to do so when the weather is warm), I'm going to let it get soft (room temp) and then put it in ice cube trays and store the cubes. Enough of this chiseling it out of the container.

It stays solid and scoopable at room temp.
