1000mg (1kg) Coconut Refined Oil (solid) by Naissance
0 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I'm basing this review on having purchased what looks like the same product from the same firm, but in different packaging, and it's a great product.

However, the Amazon product title includes the words "1000 mg (1kg)...".

Well, as any fule know, 1000 milligrams is one gramme, not one kilogrammes.

However, I assume they are not actually sending out 1 gramme packs, so I assume it really is 1kg,
which is 1000g and NOT 1000mg.

Get a grip, someone....
1 Kg Organic Refined Coconut Solid Oil - 100% Pure&hellip by Naissance
Like a lot of others, I'm a fan of this product, but I was a bit shocked to see that it had gone up by about 3 (from nearly 17, to nearly 20, for two, post free), compared to my last order, only a month or so ago.

I guess it's still good value, but is this a typical retailer's pre-Christmas trick?

A bit shabby, if so.

I'll be interested to see what happens to their prices in the New Year. (Pity I don't want to wait until then).

EDIT: 12th April 2014

And (as noted elsewhere, except I can't find it now), I now see the price has leaped up to 23.99 for two, from around 20! I can hardly believe this....

hmmmm… Read more

Beware: This book is not as advertised:

1. It's not hardback. It's just one of the usual Reclam softbacks (the initial picture is accurate).

2. It's not a parallel text. It's just a Latin text with German notes, vocab, etc.

It's still probably useful - but it's not a parallel text, which is the impression you get if you look at the preview, which is clearly of some other edition (perhaps that was a hardback).

I'm tempted to send it back, but as I say, it's not completely useless, but I really wanted a parallel text, not Latin with German notes.

*annoyed* With myself - perhaps I should have known it was too cheap to be what I hoped it… Read more
