Giveaway! Nikki's Coconut Butter

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who participated!  The contest is now closed and winner has been chosen. 
Friends, I am neck deep in book makin’ and just when the world seems like it’s nothing but fermentation jars and photo shoots and writing and rewriting, something fell into my lap (figuratively) and made my crazy days a bit brighter.
Someone told me about Nikki’s Coconut Butter.  Hoo yeah.
First of all, I am a fan of coconut butter.  Not to be confused with coconut oil which is just the oil extracted from coconut meat (although I’m a fan of that too), coconut butter is the meat from a coconut blended into a delicious, dream-like paste that has about a million culinary uses.  My favorite being eating it straight from the jar.


Nikki’s Coconut Butter seems to do it one better, however.  You see, their coconut butter is available in five scrumptious flavors.  So not only is coconut butter itself a dream, Nikki’s amped it up by adding all-natural foodstuffs to make it an even better version of itself.  We’re talking chocolate hazelnut brownie, vanilla cake batter, midnight mocha (chocolate lover’s dream!), macadamia nut cookie, and honey pecan pie.  See what I mean?  Poetry in a jar.


None of them contain any refined sugar, and like their website says, coconut butter is a treat that is good for your body. It will make you feel sooooo much better than eating something rife with sugar and refined seed oils. Blah.
Nikki’s sent me a jar (madacamia nut cookie!!!) to try out and it is divine!  So, because I love you all so much and I want you to share in the wealth, I’m offering one you a FREE 12 ounce jar of the flavor of your choice.  It will be a random drawing and you have until Friday, March 1 at noon EST to enter.  All you have to do is leave a comment below and tell me which flavor of Nikki’s Coconut Butter you’d choose if you’re the lucky winner.  And like that, you’re entered to win.
Here are a few things you can do to earn additional chances to win:
1. Go on over to Facebook and like First Comes Health.
2. Follow me on Twitter!
3. Follow me on Instagram.
If you’re already a Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram follower, get a friend to follow me and drop me an email ( and let me know.  That way you’ll both earn extra entries!
So, hop to it!  I guarantee you’ll want to win this.  I’m off to attack my jar of coconut butter with a spoon. You could be doing the same!

    They all sound so good but if I have to pick one it would be the chocolate hazelnut brownie. Congrats on the book. I’m looking forward to making all things fermented!

      Doesn’t the hazelnut brownie sound fantastic?! I might have to get that one next for myself!
      And let me know how that ginger beer turns out! Fermenting beverages is my first fermenting love so I’m curious to know what your experiences are. 🙂

    Oh my goodness! They all sound so good, but I think I would have to choose Macadamia Nut Cookie. What else can you do with them, besides eating straight out of the jar? 🙂

      I spread some on apple slices, make truffles out of it, and some people mix it in coffee. Just a few thoughts off the top of my head. 🙂

    They all sound yummy but I’m gluten free now so the idea of having vanilla cake batter sounds too good to be true! Of course I just really love the name!

    Mmmm, they all sound wonderful, but if I have to choose one, it would be vanilla cake batter, I suppose. Thank you for letting us know about this jar of joy!

    I already follow you on everything 1. because I’m a stalker and 2. because you’re awesome and it makes me feel so cool to know someone who’s writing a freaking cookbook! #jealous
    I’d like to try either macadamia nut or cake batter. What am I saying, they all sound amazing!

    Well dang. I can barely decide what I’d choose! I’m thinking the vanilla cake batter and the macadamia nut cookie sound incredibly delicious, but have perhaps too high a probability of my polishing off the jar immediately.
    So if I were to win, I’d go with the honey pecan pie! I think it sounds like it would be IMPECCABLE melted atop a baked sweet potato, which is one of my favorite ways to indulge in coconut butter deliciousness. Although choosing this flavor would be in hopes of not eating the entire jar with a spoon, I realize there is a chance that would happen anyway!
