    Costco sells a huge container of it for approx $13, and it's organic.

      Or you can spend half for half the size container at a health food store to make sure you like the product first.

      Trader Joe's (Westwood, Paramus) has a good coconut oil for $5.99/16oz jar.

          Coconut oil has become so popular, I can't think of any stores not carrying it. Whole Foods, Kings, Costco, ShopRite, health food stores, vitamin stores to name a few.

          In grocery stores you may not find it down the aisle with traditional oils but rather in the "natural/special diet" aisle.
          But I'd recommend asking at the Customer Service desk of your local market for help. It really is that common now.

            +1, its popular enough that Shoprite has been known to sell all of the stuff on the shelf.

            Whole foods has about 10 different brands, and I beleive in Costco you can get about a gallon sized jug of it.

            My vegan friend dumps a bunch of it in his coffee every morning.

              my former roommate used it as a deep conditioning treatment for her hair. she slathered on her hair and wrapped it in a hot, moist towel. after the towel cooled off she shampooed with a very mild shampoo.
