I put a tablespoon in my coffee in the morning. I use it on veggies and Oopsie rolls. I put it on my hair once a week, covered with a shower cap, and sleep in it.
My son puts it in his smoothies.
I get the Nutiva double pack (54 ounces each) from Amazon. So far, the best deal i"ve found. It does have some coconut smell....very light....I haven't noticed the taste in my foods and I'm not a huge fan of coconut.
ROFLMBO!! Oh, Betty, that was funny. (Shhh - don't eat at Betty's house - lol)

I have to say though that I used to strongly dislike coconut, but now I love the fresh, light smell and flavor of the extra virgin coconut oil. You never know if you might develop an appreciation for it, especially once you learn about all the amazing health benefits of it.

Good organic extra virgin coconut oil does have a mild coconut flavor, sometimes noticeable and sometimes not. It's very mild, so it depends on the recipe. My family hates coconut, but I use coconut oil to saute veggies, bake with, fry eggs, just about everything, and they love it all except the eggs---they don't like the eggs in coconut oil too much, come to think of it, lol. But they love the sauteed veggies. I pan-fry meat in it too and it is really good! You can get organic extra virgin coconut oil that has had it's flavor and aroma removed---I wish I could remember what that's called when they do that---but I personally don't like to cook with it much b/c it has no flavor at all.
