Because of this thread, I went out and got some coconut oil at Trader Joe's, and tried it. This stuff is delicious. It's like candy to me. If you are what you eat, I'm afraid of becoming a fake Mexican (a Coconut).
I take a small spoon, about 1/2 teaspoon (because I don't want it to disappear so fast) and it starts melting right away. IT MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH. I have not been able to figure out how to suppress my salivary glands because within 10 seconds, my mouth is awash with it, and I have to get another spoon of the oil because it's too diluted already, and besides, I can't control myself and keep swallowing it. The longest I've been able to keep some part of it from being swallowed is no more than one minute.
I knew a guy from England who boasted that his lemon chicken was "so good, it melts in your mouth!" He was wrong. His lemon chicken tasted okay, but it sat like a lump in my mouth and did NO MELTING whatsoever. But maybe that's because he didn't cook it with coconut oil. HAHAHAHAHA
Seriously, this all-natural wonder is addicting. I don't know how I could have been so uninformed all these years. Thanks to you all who passed along this unstoppable idea. If dental health is a side benefit, all the better. That's all I have to say.
